The company expects fiscal year 2014 gross margins to improve by approximately 50 basis points, and for selling, general and administrative expenses to increase approximately 16%, consisting of incremental operating costs of the China joint venture, increased investment in demand-creation, increased costs related to the company's U.S. ERP implementation, and investments in continued expansion of the company's global direct-to-consumer platform.
