Other implementation costs primarily include professional fees and relocation costs for the establishment of a European supply chain hub in the Netherlands.(c) Excludes currency translation versus FY12 average rates as well as current year translation hedge.(d) Emerging Markets sales in Fiscal 2013 now include the markets of Papua New Guinea, South Korea and Singapore. Sales in these markets were included in Developed Markets sales in the prior year and therefore, were treated as an acquisition variance when comparing current year sales to the prior year for Emerging Markets.
