Adidas AG Key Developments

Adidas AG Announces Group Earnings Results for the Second Quarter of 2014; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2014

Adidas AG announced group earnings results for the second quarter of 2014. For the second quarter, the group's top-line momentum materially improved as expected. Sales increased 10% on a currency-neutral basis, driven by 14% growth at adidas and 9% growth at Reebok, while sales at TaylorMade-adidas Golf declined 18%. Currency effects continued to play a significantly negative role, impacting top-line results by over 7% points in the quarter. As a result, sales increased 2% to EUR 3.465 billion. Operating profit in the second quarter was EUR 220 million. Net income attributable to shareholders for the quarter was EUR 144 million. For the year 2014, the management now expects a mid- to high-single-digit currency-neutral sales increase (previously: high-single-digit increase) for the full year 2014 and net income attributable to shareholders to be at a level of around EUR 650 million compared to previous guidance of EUR 830 million to EUR 930 million.
