“We delivered strong third-quarter results and remain on-track to achieve our full-year expectations,” President and CEO Chip Bergh said in a statement.

And our global wholesale business grew two percent in constant-currency, despite U.S. wholesale facing what we expect will be the toughest comparison of the year."
