UNDER ARMOUR REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2021 RESULTS;
RAISES FULL YEAR OUTLOOK
BALTIMORE, May 4, 2021 – Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE: UA, UAA) today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. 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 measures, the non-cash amortization of debt discount on the company’s convertible debt, and related tax effects. The reconciliation of non-GAAP amounts to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated according to GAAP is presented in supplemental financial information furnished with this release. All per share amounts are reported on a diluted basis.

“Under Armour is off to an excellent start for the year. Our first-quarter results demonstrate that our improved operating model and investments we’re making to amplify our connection with consumers are enabling us to deliver against strong demand for our brand.” said Under Armour President and CEO Patrik Frisk. “Additionally, with a solid balance sheet and well-managed inventory, we’re confident in our ability to drive well through 2021 as we get back on offense and make measured progress to returning to sustainable, profitable growth over the long-term.”

First Quarter 2021 Review

Revenue was up 35 percent to $1.3 billion (up 32 percent currency neutral) compared to the prior year.
Wholesale revenue increased 35 percent to $800 million and direct-to-consumer revenue increased 54 percent to $437 million, driven by 69 percent growth in eCommerce.

Within the international business, revenue increased 41 percent in EMEA (up 33 percent currency neutral), increased 120 percent in Asia-Pacific (up 107 percent currency neutral), and decreased 9 percent in Latin America (down 7 percent currency neutral).
Apparel revenue increased 35 percent to $810 million. Footwear revenue increased 47 percent to $309 million. Accessories revenue increased 73 percent to $117 million.
Gross margin increased 370 basis points to 50.0 percent compared to the prior year, driven primarily by benefits from pricing, supply chain initiatives, and channel mix.
Selling, general & administrative expenses decreased 7 percent to $515 million primarily due to lower legal and marketing costs than the prior year.
Restructuring and impairment charges were $7 million.
Operating income was $107 million. Adjusted operating income was $114 million.
Net income was $78 million. Adjusted net income was $75 million.
Diluted earnings per share was $0.17. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.16.

Updated 2021 Outlook

Key points related to Under Armour’s full-year 2021 outlook include:

Revenue is now expected to be up at a high-teen percentage rate compared to the previous expectation of a high-single-digit percentage rate increase, reflecting a high-teen percentage growth rate in North America and low thirties percentage growth rate in the international business.
Gross margin is now expected to be up approximately 50 basis points compared to the previous expectation of 'up slightly', versus the prior year adjusted gross margin of 48.6 percent with benefits from pricing and supply chain efficiency, being largely offset by the sale of MyFitnessPal, which carried a high gross margin rate.
Operating income is now expected to reach approximately $105 million to $115 million compared to the previous range of $5 million to $25 million. Excluding the impact of restructuring efforts, adjusted operating income is expected to reach $230 million to $240 million compared to the previous expectation of $130 million to $150 million.
Diluted loss per share is now expected to be about $0.02 to $0.04 compared to the previous expectation of a diluted loss per share of $0.18 to $0.20 and adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.28 to $0.30 compared to the previous expectation of adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.12 to $0.14.

2020 Restructuring Plan

In April 2020, Under Armour announced a restructuring plan designed to rebalance its cost base to improve profitability and cash flow. Of the estimated $550 million to $600 million restructuring plan range, the company has recognized $480 million of pre-tax charges, including $7 million in the first quarter of 2021. Of the $480 million recognized, there has been $126 million in cash-related charges and $354 million in non-cash-related charges. The company expects to realize approximately $35 million to $40 million in charges related to this plan in the second quarter.

COVID-19 Update

Under Armour remains focused on protecting teammate and consumer health and safety while working with its suppliers, partners, and customers to navigate potential disruptions. Given continued uncertainty related to COVID-19, there could be potential material impacts on its full-year business results in 2021.

Conference Call and Webcast

Under Armour will hold its first quarter conference call and webcast today at approximately 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time. The call will be webcast live at https://about.underarmour.com/investor-relations/financials and will be archived and available for replay about three hours after the live event.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release refers to “currency neutral” and “adjusted” results as well as “adjusted” forward-looking estimates of the company’s fiscal 2021 outlook. Currency-neutral financial information is calculated to exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Management believes this information is helpful to investors to compare 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


ualogo013117a011a.jpg
believes this information is useful to investors because it enhances visibility into its actual underlying results, excluding these impacts. Adjusted interest expense, adjusted other expense, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted income (loss) per share exclude the non-cash amortization of debt discount on the company’s convertible senior notes. Management believes the non-cash portion of the interest expense, which represents the accretion of the bifurcated equity component of the convertible senior notes’ conversion option, 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 contemplated in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company’s reported results prepared per GAAP. Additionally, the company’s non-GAAP financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(1) Under the Company’s 2020 restructuring plan’s approved range of $550 million to $600 million in restructuring and impairment charges, the impact of total charges to be realized in fiscal 2021 assumes the high-end of an estimated $77 million to $127 million range.

In connection with the Company’s first quarter conference call and webcast, the Company will discuss its projected adjusted diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and the full year ended December 31, 2021. As a result of restructuring expenses incurred in fiscal year 2021, in connection with the 2020 restructuring plan, the United States and certain other foreign jurisdictions, are considered loss jurisdictions for fiscal year 2021. These jurisdictions are accounted for discretely and excluded from the annual effective tax rate computation for purposes of computing the interim tax provision and a separate annual effective rate is calculated for each of these jurisdictions and applied against their respective year-to-date ordinary income or loss each quarter. As a result, the income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021, is subject to significant variability based on the actual quarterly pre-tax results, and a meaningful estimated range of GAAP-based income tax expense cannot be provided. Given this variability, there is substantial uncertainty associated with accurately projecting the Company’s GAAP-based income tax expense and GAAP-based diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Alternatively, Adjusted income tax expense


ualogo013117a011a.jpg
includes all global jurisdictions in the annual effective tax rate mitigating significant quarterly variability. Therefore, a reconciliation to the Company’s adjusted diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021 has not been provided, as the Company believes the reconciliation is not meaningful.

The Company’s net income for the three months ended June 30, 2021, is expected to be impacted by approximately $35 to $40 million of restructuring and impairment charges, and approximately $5 million of non-cash amortization of debt discount on its convertible debt, both of which are excluded for purposes of calculating adjusted net income.
