Despite softer than expected market conditions in the golf industry, the Company's results include 6% sales growth for the first half of 2013, and 1% sales growth for the second quarter of 2013, both on a constant currency basis on its current business, which excludes the brands and businesses that in 2012 were sold or transitioned to a third party model.
The Company's GAAP sales results reflect the impact of the sold or transitioned businesses, which negatively impacted GAAP sales comparisons by approximately $45 million for the first half of 2013 and by approximately $25 million for the second quarter of 2013.
The reported GAAP sales results were also impacted by changes in foreign currency rates in 2013 as compared to 2012, which adversely affected sales by approximately $18 million for the first half of 2013 and by approximately $10 million for the second quarter of 2013. GAAP sales, which include the impact of foreign currency and the sold or transitioned businesses, decreased by 5% and 11% for the first half and second quarter of 2013, respectively.
The Company's improved brand momentum, operating efficiencies and cost management enabled the Company to overcome the softer than expected market conditions, adverse effects of the changes in foreign currency rates, and the impact of the sold or transitioned businesses. As a result, the Company reported improvements in operating income and earnings per share on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for both the first half of 2013 and second quarter of 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012.
