Fiscal 2021 Re-segmentation
In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, certain changes were made to the company’s management team, and the operating segment reporting structure was realigned as a result. The company realigned the fully licensed Latin America and Caribbean markets from the Americas operating segment to the International operating segment. The Americas operating segment has been renamed the North America operating segment, comprised of company-operated and licensed stores in the U.S. and Canada. Fiscal 2020 segment information has been restated to conform with current period presentation.

There was no impact to consolidated net revenues, consolidated operating income or net earnings per share as a result of these changes.
