Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) is scheduled to report earnings results for the third quarter of 2019 on Monday, November 4, before the market opens. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.18 per share on revenue of $1.41 billion.
The company has been seeing weakness in the North America region and this is likely to weigh on third quarter results. However, strength in the international business might help offset this decline. Last quarter, the North America segment revenue decreased 3% while international revenues grew 12%.
The wholesale division might also see slight weakness during the third quarter which could impact the topline. Last quarter, wholesale revenue fell 1%. The footwear business is likely to continue the momentum seen in past quarters. Last quarter, the footwear business was up 5%.
Under Armour is expected to benefit from its strategy of focusing more on its fitness-based business, amid the growing health awareness among sportspersons. Last quarter, the connected fitness business grew 10%.
Earlier this month, Under Armour’s founder and CEO Kevin Plank announced that he would move on to the position of Executive Chairman and Brand Chief, while Patrik Frisk would take over as the new CEO, effective January 1, 2020.
