"The strength of our brands and product, supported by the power of our world-wide omni-distribution strategy, drove our operating results. North America was a major highlight with outstanding growth in our Tempur-Pedic products and a solid performance by Sealy and Stearns & Foster products.  While we recently introduced the most innovative product suite in our company's history, we will be in market testing new revolutionary products that we expect will extend our leadership position. This aligns to our initiative to provide the most innovative bedding solutions in the world. Additionally, we continue to make progress toward optimising our omni-distribution model, as we expanded both in wholesale and direct channels. A highlight for the quarter was global direct to consumer which grew to a record $75 million in the quarter while expanding margin. This channel represented 11 per cent of global revenues," Tempur Sealy International, Inc. chairman and CEO Scott Thompson said. (RR)
