Under Armour Inc announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011. Net revenues increased 36% in the first quarter of 2011 to $312.7 million compared with net revenues of $229.4 million in the first quarter of 2010. Net income increased to $12.1 million in the first quarter of 2011 compared with $7.2 million in the prior year's period. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2011 were $0.23 on weighted average common shares outstanding of 52.4 million compared with $0.14 per share on weighted average common shares outstanding of 50.9 million in the first quarter of the prior year.

First quarter apparel net revenues increased 34% to $230.5 million compared with $172.6 million in the same period of the prior year, driven by strength across each of the Men's, Women's, and Youth apparel businesses and the Company's initial launch of Charged Cotton apparel. Direct-to-Consumer net revenues, which represented 20% of total net revenues for the first quarter, grew 53% year-over-year. First quarter footwear net revenues increased 20% to $51.4 million from $43.0 million in the prior year's period. First quarter accessories net revenues increased 213% to $23.5 million from $7.5 million in the prior year's period, primarily driven by the transition of our previously licensed hats and bags business in-house commencing January 2011.

Kevin Plank, President, CEO and Chairman of Under Armour, Inc., stated, "First quarter results underscore the substantial opportunities that remain in taking our Brand to new consumers. The launch of Charged Cotton to date shows that we can change category expectations, while broadening the overall market opportunity for the Brand. At the same time, we continue to see opportunities to better meet consumer demand through enhanced execution with our existing retail partners as well as through our own Direct-to-Consumer channel."

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2011 was 46.4% compared with 46.9% in the prior year's quarter primarily due to less favorable apparel product mix and footwear sourcing costs, partially offset by a higher percentage of revenue from our higher margin Direct-to-Consumer channel. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 39.6% in the first quarter of 2011 compared with 41.0% in the first quarter of 2010, primarily reflecting leverage of corporate services costs and an approximate $2 million shift of retail marketing spend into the second quarter. Reflecting this shift, marketing expense for the first quarter of 2011 was 13.3% of net revenues compared with 13.6% in the prior year's quarter. For the first quarter, operating income grew 56% to $21.1 million compared with $13.6 million in the prior year's period.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents decreased 33% to $110.8 million at March 31, 2011 compared with $166.0 million at March 31, 2010. The Company had no borrowings outstanding under its new $300 million revolving credit facility at March 31, 2011. Inventory at March 31, 2011 increased 68% to $248.6 million compared with $147.9 million at March 31, 2010, reflecting the Company's efforts to better service anticipated consumer demand in 2011. Net accounts receivable increased 48% to $163.4 million at March 31, 2011 compared with $110.3 million at March 31, 2010, largely based on the timing of wholesale apparel shipments later in the first quarter.
