Net sales for second quarter 2016 were $1.1 billion, a 14% increase from net sales of $924 million in second quarter 2015.

Reflecting the company's second quarter 2016 results, management now expects constant currency adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.43 to $1.46 for full year 2016, excluding investments in the China joint venture.

The company expects net sales growth to be in the range of 10.5% to 11.5% in reported currency and 11% to 12% on constant currency, adjusted total operating income growth to be high teens to 20% on reported currency and low 20%, adjusted diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.32 to $1.35 on reported currency and $1.37 to $1.40 on constant currency.
