We grew our powerful portfolio of owned and licensed brands as we prepared for the important holiday season ahead. We are very excited about the significant growth opportunities we see for the MVMT brand, which we acquired on October 1, 2018 and we remain on track to begin the integration of MVMT into our operating platform during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Our strong balance sheet afforded us the opportunity to fund the MVMT acquisition and we ended the third quarter with $142.7 million in cash.”
