GUIDANCE:

  • The Company now expects net sales growth to be in the middle of the 1% to 4% range, including an approximately 5% negative impact from foreign exchange and a modest benefit from the Red Collar acquisition.
  • The Company raised its organic sales growth guidance for the year from 5% to 7% to 6% to 7%.
  • On a GAAP basis, the Company still expects a decline in gross profit margin and double-digit earnings-per-share growth, and now expects advertising investment to be roughly flat.
  • On a non-GAAP (Base Business) basis, the Company still expects a decline in gross profit margin and now expects roughly flat advertising investment and a 7% to 8% earnings-per-share decline reflecting the incremental negative impact from foreign exchange due to the move in exchange rates since our second quarter earnings release.
