Finally, we reorganized our international business through a divesture of our Europe segment, SAPSA
, as well as our Brazilian operations and have transitioned our business in these locations to license arrangements.
These operations will be combined into a separate entity, SAPSA Group Srl, which will remain a valued Sealy partner through a Sealy Brand licensing agreement in Europe (excluding the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man).
Our decision to divest SAPSA enables us to better focus our resources on the areas of our business that are aligned with our greatest growth opportunities.
We are also excited for the SAPSA business as we believe that the new ownership team, whose management has significant European operating experience, will provide it with renewed energy.

SUGEN chairman, Mike Stoko from ASUG, and Vice-Chairs Matthias Herzog of DSAG and Per Hogberg of SAPSA
, see these activities as firmly in line with the charter of the task force.
