Quotes

"We are thrilled to know that our brand awareness is very high and there is a deep affinity for Gap in India."
...where conserving costs and space are high priorities," said Simon Hwang, president of Acer Stationary Computing and Display Business Group, "Due to the ease of management, the Chromebox can significantly reduce the technical support and consequently lower the total cost of ownership."
"We believe home improvement spending will continue to progress in tandem with strengthening job and income growth," Niblock added. "Our year-to-date sales performance, together with our previous assumptions for the second half of 2014, result in a modest reduction to our sales outlook for the year. Our diluted earnings per share outlook is unchanged, which is a testament to our keen focus on profitability."
CST Brands chairman and CEO Kim Bowers said: "Our stores across the United States and Canada share a lot in common with Nice N Easy Grocery Shoppes, making this a great match culturally and a prime opportunity for CST Brands to enter into new markets."
