Net income at Columbia Sportswear crashes in Q1

Apr '12
Columbia Sportswear Company, a leading innovator in the active outdoor apparel and footwear industries, announced net sales of $333.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, essentially equal to net sales for the same period of 2011, including less than 1 percentage point negative effect from changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

First quarter net income totaled $3.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, including restructuring charges of approximately $2.8 million net of tax, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with net income of $12.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the same period of 2011.

Tim Boyle, Columbia's president and chief executive officer, commented, "As expected, our first quarter results and 2012 outlook reflect muted sales growth due to the lingering effects of the warm winter globally and continued economic weakness across Europe. During the quarter, we implemented difficult but necessary cost containment measures designed to maintain our profitability while we work to liquidate excess inventory levels.

"These near-term challenges deepen our long-term resolve to continue to elevate each of our brands and strengthen their year-round presence in the marketplace. With Omni-Heat firmly established as a leading warmth technology, our innovation pipeline for 2013 features new visible cooling technologies that will be offered in both our Columbia and Mountain Hardwear brands."

Boyle concluded, "We remain focused on our strategic priorities-driving innovation, transforming our supply chain and ERP platform, managing inventory and expenses and, above all else, nurturing stronger emotional connections with consumers to drive long-term growth."
