This was driven by the outstanding efforts of our wholesalers, retailers and employees in executing our plans in the marketplace during the key summer selling season as we achieved eight percent depletion growth during the quarter. I'm also grateful for the dedication and diligence of this group who acted swiftly and thoroughly during our previously announced recall efforts. Our wine and spirits performance for the quarter was solid," said Rob Sands, president and chief executive officer, Constellation Brands. "While we expect to see some shift in beer sales from the second quarter into the third quarter as a result of the recall, we remain on track to achieve our comparable basis EPS goal for fiscal 2015."
