Revenue of $1.636 billion increased 7% as compared to the prior year, including a 3% negative impact attributable to the exit from the Izod women’s and Timberland wholesale sportswear businesses and foreign currency translation and a 3% benefit from an additional week of revenue, as the 2012 fiscal year included 53 weeks of operations.
