Total points of sale at retail during the quarter increased by 103 doors to 196 compared to last year. That aggregate number includes the addition of the stores in Japan. New stores added to the fleet, excluding the pre existing Kate Spade Japan stores, were plus 50 for the quarter. Adjusted brand EBITDA for the quarter was up 50% to $24 million. Overall, product trends include very strong growth in small leather goods and in handbags, especially leather, which we've been focused on all year. And despite a softening for some key competitors in watches, we saw tremendous growth in that category again in the third quarter and believe it will be a key driver in 2014 as we expand both distribution and our product offering globally.
