Adjusted for that addition, U.S. sales grew by 4.1 percent year-over-year. For the nine months through September, U.S. sales of $171.0 million were up 24.8 percent year-over-year (+24.3 percent in local currency).

Bossard said it is expecting full year 2017 sales of $802 million, up from 2016's $714 million.
