Highlights First Quarter 2012
• Consolidated sales increase by 6.1% to € 820.9 million.
• Gross profit margin falls by 120 basis points to 51.2%.
• EBIT decline by 8.1% to € 102 million.
• Net earnings decrease slightly, by 4.9% to € 74 million.
• EPS decline from € 5.17 to € 4.92.
• Long-term contractual partnership with the Italian Football Federation extended.

Outlook for the Financial Year 2012
• Management reiterates full-year sales target of high single-digit growth for 2012.
• Management continues to see net earnings increasing in the mid-single digit range for 2012.

“After a strong finish in 2011, PUMA's first-quarter sales growth could not keep pace with that of recent quarters, translating into weaker bottom line results, said Franz Koch, CEO of PUMA SE. “Our first quarter sales performance indicates that we are facing challenges in Europe. As a consequence, we have begun to respond to these challenges, optimizing the efficiency of our business model in the EMEA region. In addition, I am confident that the product innovations we have in the pipelines will contribute to achieving our full-year sales and earnings targets against the background of this extraordinary sports year.”
