"I am pleased to report that our second quarter results finished above the high-end of our expectations for adjusted operating margin and adjusted earnings per share. Overall, total Company revenues increased 14 per cent in US dollars and 12 per cent in constant currency, driven by continued momentum in Europe and Asia. The second quarter marked another quarter of operating margin expansion for the Company, with a 70 basis points increase in Gaap operating margin and 130 basis points increase in adjusted operating margin. In addition, I am very encouraged by the trends in our Americas Retail business where we posted another quarter of positive comps and expanded our operating margin," Victor Herrero, chief executive officer, said.

"Overall, I am very pleased by the momentum we are experiencing across the globe. We are now planning for positive comps in all regions, including the Americas. Looking forward, I feel confident that the 'turnaround' has only just begun, as we are well positioned to exit this fiscal year with every business segment profitable and the Company firmly on the path to our 7.5 per cent operating margin goal by continuing to execute on our strategic initiatives," Herrero concluded.
