Under Armour slashes its forecast for the rest of the year

Under Armour‘s stock is down about 6% after the company posted mixed third-quarter results and lowered its sales and earnings outlook for the rest of the year.

The atheltic apperal company earned an adjusted $US0.22 per share on revenue of $US1.4 billion. Wall Street was looking for $US0.19 on revenue of $US1.48 billion, according to the Bloomberg consensus.

Under Armour now sees full-year adjusted earnings per share of $US0.18 to $US0.20, well below its previous forecast of $US0.37 to $US0.40.

“While our international business continues to deliver against our ambition of building a global brand, operational challenges and lower demand in North America resulted in third quarter revenue that was below our expectations,” Under Armour Chairman and CEO Kevin Plank said in the earnings release. “Based on these issues in our largest market, we believe it is prudent to reduce our sales and earnings outlook for the remainder of 2017.”

Before Tuesday’s results, shares of Under Armour were down 43.51% this year.
