Under Armour lifts outlook
The Baltimore-based sportswear giant has reported unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended on the 30th of June 2021. Revenue was up by 91% to 1.4 billion US dollars. Under Armour has updated its outlook for the fiscal year
"We are very pleased with Under Armour's better than expected second-quarter results, which reflect solid progress compared to both 2020 and 2019. Given the continued momentum, we're raising our full-year outlook, which puts us on track to achieving a solid performance in 2021. With the critical mass of our transformation behind us and the continued improvements across product, marketing, and our financial results, I believe this year sets a robust foundation that positions us well for our next chapter of profitable growth. At the halfway point of our fiscal year, I'm confident in our ability to execute our strategy by putting Focused Performers at the centre of everything we do and increasing our capacity to drive consistent, profitable growth for our shareholders over the long-term", commented Under Armour President and CEO Patrik Frisk.
