The Group continues to expand its global, fully integrated store and online sales platform. In the first nine months of 2014, it opened a net 230 new stores, in 50 countries and expanded its online footprint. Following recent online launches in South Korea and Mexico during the past quarter, the Group is now present in 27 markets.

New stores were opened in all geographic regions; strong space growth continued, helped by major openings across all of the Group's concepts.
