This, combined with recent slowing momentum in North America set against a tough macro-economic backdrop, has led us to revise annual guidance. We believe these challenges are temporary and our brand strength and strategy position us well to drive profitable growth – which we look forward to discussing at our upcoming Investor Day.”
