Ralph Lauren Corporation (RL) reported better-than-expected financial results for its first fiscal 2016 quarter earlier this week, three months after announcing a major global brand management structure.

Despite declining by five percent on a reported basis, net revenues of $1.6 billion were in line with the prior year period on a constant currency basis, driven by double-digit international growth, new store openings and global e-commerce expansion.

Reported wholesale segment sales declined nine percent to $642 million.

Consolidated comparable store sales decreased two percent on a constant currency basis and eight percent on a reported basis.
