The Company is now projecting adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2013 to increase approximately 17% to 21% to between $108.2 million and $111.5 million compared to its previous guidance of between approximately $102.5 million and $106.0 million.
The forecasted non-GAAP net income per share and forecasted adjusted EBITDA for the full fiscal year reflect adjustments that exclude the expenses of the Vilebrequin acquisition incurred through July 31, 2012.
Non-GAAP net income per share and adjusted EBITDA should be evaluated in light of the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Reconciliations of forecasted GAAP net income per share to forecasted non-GAAP net income per share and of GAAP net income to adjusted EBITDA are included in tables accompanying the condensed financial statements in this release.
For its third fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2012, the Company is forecasting net sales of approximately $570 million compared to $510 million in the comparable quarter last year. The Company is also forecasting net income for the third fiscal quarter between $46.4 million and $48.4 million, or between $2.25 and $2.35 per diluted share, compared to net income of $43.6 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, in last year's third quarter. The Company’s forecast for the third fiscal quarter does not take into account any additional expenses or integration costs that may be incurred during the quarter with respect to the acquisition of Vilebrequin.
