The new guidance figure assumes a total comparable sales increase in the mid-single digits on a constant dollar basis, while the previous guidance for comparable sales was an increase in the low-single digits on a constant dollar basis, the company said.

The guidance includes 136.2 million diluted weighted-average shares outstanding and a 30.9% tax rate.
