Q2 2020 Earnings


Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE: UA, UAA) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. The company reports its financial performance in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). This press release refers to "currency neutral" and "adjusted" amounts, which are non-GAAP financial measures described below under the "Non-GAAP Financial Information" paragraph. References to adjusted financial measures exclude the impact of the company's 2020 restructuring plan and related impairment charges, impairments associated with certain long-lived assets and goodwill and related tax effects, and with respect to certain measure, the non-cash amortization of debt discount on the company's convertible debt and related tax effects. Reconciliations of non-GAAP amounts to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP are presented in supplemental financial information furnished with this release. All per share amounts are reported on a diluted basis.


"With the majority of our own stores and wholesale locations closed for most of the second quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while we performed better than expected, we still experienced a significant decline in revenue across all markets," said Under Armour President and CEO Patrik Frisk. "In navigating this environment, our team continues to respond strategically and methodically – amplifying Under Armour's connection with our consumers through innovative digital activations, proactively managing our cost structure and working to harness our brand strength amid shifts in consumer behavior to emerge as a stronger company."


Frisk continued, "Now, with most of these doors reopened, we are encouraged by some of the momentum we've experienced in June and July. However, we remain appropriately cautious with respect to the balance of 2020 due to continued uncertainty related to consumer shopping dynamics, the potential for a highly promotional environment and proactive decisions to reduce inventory purchases to be more aligned with anticipated demand related to ongoing COVID-19 impacts."


  • Revenue was down 41 percent to $708 million (down 40 percent currency neutral) predominantly related to the COVID-19 pandemic impacts in the quarter.
    • Wholesale revenue decreased 58 percent to $299 million and direct-to-consumer revenue was down 13 percent to $368 million.
    • North America revenue decreased 45 percent to $450 million and revenue from our international business decreased 34 percent to $224 million (down 32 percent currency neutral). Within the international business, revenue decreased 39 percent in EMEA (down 37 percent currency neutral), decreased 20 percent in Asia-Pacific (down 17 percent currency neutral), and decreased 72 percent in Latin America (down 68 percent currency neutral).
    • Apparel revenue decreased 42 percent to $426 million. Footwear revenue decreased 35 percent to $185 million. Accessories revenue decreased 47 percent to $56 million.
  • Gross margin increased 280 basis points to 49.3 percent compared to the prior year driven by channel mix which benefitted from significantly lower sales to the off-price channel, as well as a higher mix of direct-to-consumer sales, partially offset by the negative impacts from COVID-19 related discounting.
  • Selling, general & administrative expenses decreased 15 percent to $480 million driven primarily by reduced marketing spend in addition to other cost cutting initiatives to mitigate top line impacts from COVID-19 including lower incentive compensation and reduced variable expenses tied to revenue.
  • Restructuring and impairment charges were $39 million consisting of $28 million in non-cash and $11 million in cash related charges. For the full year, the company has recognized $475 million of restructuring and impairment charges consisting of $340 million in restructuring and related impairment charges ($326 million in non-cash and $14 million in cash related charges) and $135 million from impairments of long-lived assets and goodwill.
  • Operating loss was $170 million. Excluding the impact of restructuring and impairment charges, adjusted operating loss was $131 million.
  • Net loss was $183 million. Adjusted net loss was $141 million.
  • Diluted loss per share was $0.40. Adjusted diluted loss per share was $0.31.
  • Inventory was up 24 percent to $1.2 billion.

Due to ongoing uncertainty related to COVID-19 and its potential effect on global markets, the company continues to anticipate material impacts on its business results for the remainder of 2020. The following provides additional information on channels and the company's cash and liquidity position.


  • Channel Status and Trends
    • Through mid-May, the company estimated that approximately 80 percent of locations where the brand could be purchased globally were closed. As of today, with most of these doors having reopened, traffic trends continue to be considerably lower than the prior year period, however, the overall rate of conversion is higher. The company expects traffic trends to remain lower for the remainder of 2020.
    • Additionally, the company experienced significant eCommerce growth around the world during the quarter.
  • Cash and Liquidity
    • The company ended the second quarter with Cash and Cash Equivalents of $1.1 billion.

    • Additionally, the company issued $500 million of convertible senior notes, utilizing $440 million of the net proceeds to reduce the amount outstanding under its revolving credit facility.

This press release refers to "currency neutral" and "adjusted" amounts. Currency neutral financial information is calculated to exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate a comparison of the company's results of operations period-over-period. Adjusted financial measures exclude the impact of the company's 2020 restructuring plan and related impairment charges, impairments associated with certain long-lived assets and goodwill, and related tax effects. Management believes this information is useful to investors because it enhances visibility into the company's actual underlying results excluding these impacts. Adjusted net loss and adjusted diluted loss per share also exclude the non-cash amortization of debt discount on the company's convertible senior notes and related tax effects. Management believes the non-cash portion of the interest expense, which represents the accretion of the bifurcated equity component of the conversion option of the convertible senior notes, is not core to the company's operations given the intent and ability to settle in shares of the company's Class C common stock. These supplemental non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation and should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, the company's non-GAAP financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
