"Our second quarter results, particularly profitability, exceeded our expectations," said Under Armour President and CEO Stephanie Linnartz. "Consequently, we are maintaining our fiscal 2024 operating income and EPS outlook even as we lower our revenue expectations primarily in response to challenges in North America during the back half of the year."

Linnartz continued, "As we execute against our strategic priorities, we will continue to take a balanced approach to driving profitability in the near term while taking the necessary steps to invest in the talent, systems, and processes to drive the top line growth that Under Armour is capable of over the long term."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Review

  • Revenue was flat versus the prior year at $1.6 billion (down 1 percent currency neutral).
    • Wholesale revenue decreased 1 percent to $940 million, and direct-to-consumer revenue increased 3 percent to $596 million due to a 2 percent increase in eCommerce revenue, which represented 35 percent of the total direct-to-consumer business in the quarter, and a 4 percent increase in owned and operated store revenue.
    • North America revenue decreased 2 percent to $991 million, and international revenue increased 5 percent to $573 million (up 3 percent currency neutral). In the international business, revenue increased 9 percent in EMEA (up 4 percent currency neutral) and 3 percent in Asia-Pacific (up 7 percent currency neutral). Revenue declined 8 percent in Latin America (down 19 percent currency neutral).
    • Apparel revenue increased 3 percent to $1.1 billion. Footwear revenue was down 7 percent to $351 million. Accessories revenue increased 3 percent to $114 million.
  • Gross margin increased 260 basis points to 48.0 percent, driven primarily by supply chain benefits related to lower freight expenses, partially offset by a channel mix impact related to a normalization of off-price sales.
  • Selling, general & administrative expenses increased 2 percent to $606 million.
  • Operating income was $146 million.
  • Net Income was $110 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.24.
  • Inventory was up 6 percent to $1.1 billion.
  • Cash and Cash Equivalents were $656 million at the end of the quarter, and no borrowings were outstanding under the company's $1.1 billion revolving credit facility.
