Non-GAAP revenue increased 36% YoY to $1.9 billion, and exceeded guidance by $40 million. The increase in non-GAAP revenue was primarily driven by the addition of $487 million of revenue related to the acquisition of The Warnaco Group, Inc. (Warnaco), net of a reduction in licensing revenue attributable to Warnaco from the prior year. Another contributing factor was an increase of $41 million related to the Tommy Hilfiger business, partially offset by a loss of $28 million attributable to Izod women's and Timberland wholesale sportswear business, which the Company exited in 2012. GAAP loss per share was $0.25 compared to Q1 FY 2012 GAAP EPS of $1.30, due to significant costs incurred in connection with the Company's acquisition during the quarter of its former licensee, Warnaco, and with the related integration and restructuring, a significant portion of which was non-cash.
