Carter's, Inc, the largest branded marketer in the United States of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, reported its first quarter 2012 results.

“We continue to see strong demand for our products in all channels of distribution,” said Michael D. Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The strength of our product offerings and effectiveness of our pricing, marketing, and supply chain initiatives are driving better results. We are forecasting good growth in sales and earnings this year, with more meaningful earnings growth expected in the second half driven by lower product costs.”
