Under Armour, Inc. announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012.  Net revenues increased 25% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $506 million compared with net revenues of $403 million in the prior year's period.  Net income increased 54% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $50 million compared with $33 million in the prior year's period.  Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $0.47 on weighted average common shares outstanding of 107 million compared with $0.31 per share on weighted average common shares outstanding of 105 million in the prior year's period.  
 
Fourth quarter apparel net revenues increased 25% to $405 million compared with $323 million in the same period of the prior year, driven primarily by Fleece, which included a broader expansion of the Storm platform across the category.  Fourth quarter footwear net revenues increased 43% to $45 million from $31 million in the prior year's period, primarily driven by new 2012 running styles, including UA Spine, and strong sell-in of new 2013 baseball cleats.  Fourth quarter accessories net revenues increased 16% to $43 million from $37 million in the prior year's period.  Direct-to-Consumer net revenues, which represented 39% of total net revenues for the fourth quarter, grew 29% year-over-year. 
 
Kevin Plank, Chairman and CEO of Under Armour, Inc., stated, "We closed 2012 strongly, delivering net revenue growth of at least 20% for the eleventh consecutive quarter in Q4 by building upon key apparel technology platforms like Storm Fleece and Charged Cotton.  Our ability to bring practical innovation to our consumer across a broad range of product drove our 25% net revenue growth in 2012 and positions us well for 2013 and beyond.  With these strong results in hand, we are well on our way toward delivering on the goal established at our June 2011 Investor Day to more than double our net revenues from 2010 to 2013."
 
Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 50.3% compared with 51.6% in the prior year's quarter, primarily reflecting less favorable sales mix and higher air freight costs.  Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 34.2% in the fourth quarter
