"During the quarter, we made meaningful changes in our company that will improve our efficiency and production capacity. We started to run our Vietnamese factory with 750 new employees, and are on track to have our first orders shipped in April 2017. We expect the facility to reach full operational status in 2018," said Dabah.

This represented an important step in our ongoing strategy of enhancing our branded portfolio and broadening our presence in the premium sector," Dabah added. "We continue to have a strong balance sheet to support our acquisition strategy, and we remain focused on growing our global business segment, while attaining strong EBITDA growth in 2017 and beyond."
