In our international businesses our performance was solid. Both Europe and Asia exceeded our top line expectation despite stronger currency headwind that we had planned, which also put additional pressure in our product margin. Our licensing business also outperformed expectation, giving us continued confidence in the strength of our brand worldwide. North America was our most challenging business where traffic was down specifically in tourist location.In Europe we exceeded our revenue directive even as the microeconomic environment remained uncertain, especially in the south, where a fall off in consumer confidence has certainly affected store traffic. We continue to make strides in growing our business outside of our more developed markets of Italy and France.
