Third quarter Footwear net revenues increased 21% to $63 million from $52 million in the prior year's period, primarily driven by new 2012 running styles, including UA Spine. Third quarter Accessories net revenues increased 37% to $54 million from $40 million in the prior year's period, primarily led by headwear. Direct-to-Consumer net revenues, which represented 24% of total net revenues for the third quarter, grew 31% year-over-year.

Kevin Plank, Chairman, CEO, and President of Under Armour, Inc., stated, "The third quarter marks our twelfth consecutive quarter with apparel growth in excess of 20% and our tenth consecutive quarter of net revenues growth surpassing 20%. This growth reflects our core belief that when we innovate and add value for the athlete, we win.

“Our recent expansion of the UA Storm platform is a great example of our unwavering pursuit of innovation. The Women's category remains a major focus and huge opportunity for us as a brand and the strong sell-throughs we are seeing in new products such as Studio and ArmourBra give us confidence that we are resonating with our consumers.

“Our success in innovation extended to Footwear with the successful launch this past quarter of UA Spine running footwear and will continue with our upcoming UA Spine extension into basketball and our December introduction of the UA Cam Highlight trainer."

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 48.7% compared with 48.4% in the prior year's quarter, primarily reflecting more favorable North American apparel product margins.
