Key sales figures at a glance
Bjoern Gulden, Chief Executive Officer of PUMA SE: “2013 has been a challenging year for PUMA and there is no doubt that we have issues in terms of lack of brand heat, commercial products and desirable distribution. Nonetheless, PUMA is a great brand and with our new brand positioning as the Fastest Sports Brand in the World, we have a clear vision of where we want to go. 
 
“Forever Faster” is not only our new brand statement, it is also our new mindset. PUMA is about fast products, fast athletes, fast designs and fast decision making. With the re-signing of Usain Bolt, and signing of Arsenal FC and Mario Balotelli, we further demonstrate that we are a true sports brand.
