2015 was a strong year for us in mainland China and we continue to grow in the region. Forevermark grew 30%+ in that market.
Hong Kong on the other hand, is a tougher environment for us.

They are still travelling in record numbers but not so much to Hong Kong. That makes the retail environment harder in Hong Kong.
