Quarter-to-date comparable store sales were strong across all regions, with increases of 45.1% in North America, 49.7% in Europe and 16.0% in Japan.We have not begun our normal quarter-end closing and review procedures and the final results for the 13-week period ended September 29, 2012 may differ from the results for this 11-week period. The results for this 11-week period are not for an entire fiscal period, will be subject to quarter-end closing procedures and/or adjustments and should not be viewed as a substitute for quarterly financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
The foregoing estimates for our second quarter of Fiscal 2013 and our full-year of Fiscal 2013 are forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on such statements because they are subject to numerous uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results or results of operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those in these forward-looking statements. These factors are more fully discussed in the “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”
