We eclipsed pre-pandemic first half 2019 financial results, marking an important milestone in our recovery. It is clear that our brand portfolio is resonating with consumers and we are well positioned to benefit from current consumer and outdoor trends", commented Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Tim Boyle.

Second Quarter Results
