This compared to net income of $221 million and earnings per share of $0.77 in the prior year’s first quarter.

Lew Frankfort, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Coach, Inc., said, “During the first quarter we achieved slight overall sales gains in constant currency, benefiting from our geographic diversity. We continued to drive excellent growth in emerging markets and Europe as well as in the Men’s business and developing lifestyle categories, such as footwear. Importantly, we moved forward with our transformation initiatives across all consumer touch points - product, store environments and marketing - focused on addressing the competitive handbag and accessories category in North America.”

For the quarter, operating income totaled $322 million, down 3% from the $332 million reported in the comparable year-ago period, while operating margin was 27.9% versus 28.6% reported for the prior year .

At the end of the period, about $1.2 billion remained under the company’s current repurchase authorization.
