This release refers to adjusted amounts that exclude restructuring and other items related to the acquisition of Timberland, which approximated $7 million ($0.09 per share) in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $7 million ($0.04 per share) in the same period of 2011. Adjusted amounts for the full year exclude Timberland acquisition-related expenses of $33 million ($0.22 per share) in 2011, $31 million ($0.25 per share) in 2012, and $14 million ($0.10 per share), which is anticipated in 2013.
