Victor Herrero, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to deliver second quarter earnings that exceeded our expectations both in earnings per share and operating margin. In Europe, our retail business delivered another strong quarter with comp store sales up in the low-double digits. In the Americas, our retail business in the US and Canada performed in line with our expectations with tourist doors still under-performing the chain. In Asia, we delivered positive comps in Korea, Mainland China and Japan, although Greater China was below our expectations as we continue to build out our infrastructure there and transition the business to a direct model."
Mr. Herrero continued, "I had highlighted on our prior earnings calls that the first six months of the year would be a transition period. This transition is now behind us and the investments we have made so far are expected to start generating revenue growth for the Company in the third quarter, accelerating into the fourth quarter."
