>> yeah, we think so. for sure, it's a relatively all company, small part of our business, very well-n. we're thrilled with the bu, especially the fac that it's less weather-sensitive, about 50% small, 5% spri, but most importantlit's about 70% women. th're buyingppel much more heavily than men. that's an area we've bn focusing, making or products and brands mor brands more relevant >> rock climbing, yoga, maybe a few years ago i would -- this is a much bigger category than we realize, i guess. >> it's really how that product, which is based on those nds of activities can extend beyond just thoseimed activities. so these produs are made for pele who are activ who enj being ouide, being passionate abt wh they do, whether they're climbing or inyoga or just enjoying the outdos, the products a designed to be comfo be comfortable. tows differentiated fr the unitedtates or the world for apparel.

that way >>st queion -- you mentioned the eat lance sheet. you said we cadohis grea balance sheet. tothat meant you're eier going to continue to buy bk stocks or you have your eye on other brands that can be put into your mily, or can you do both? >> i think at the end of the day weobgated to manage l of our assets, including cash in the best way. wever, we allyelieve the be -- least risky y for us to grow business and to expand our operating margins is to concentte on the an that we already ve. that having been said, we've been sucssful, we're managed our balance sht cafull and we have the opportunity to acquire brands should ey beme avaable. but frankly the focus is on makingur existing brands better and bigger. >> congratulations. it was a quarter inow we were thinking you would diver, because weecognized the
