“This result compares against high prior year figure’s, when last year's performance was positively impacted by the Arsenal launch in the third quarter and included sales of Tretorn,” a press release stated.

“The United States was one of the key growth drivers with sales increasing double-digit,” the company explained.

In Asia Pacific, sales were up 5.0 per cent year on year currency adjusted to €213.6 million, driven by substantial growth in China and India, while sales in Korea declined.

Footwear sales continued to grow and was the main driver of Puma’s total increase in net sales and reached €408.4 million representing a rise of 3.5 per cent currency adjusted from a year ago quarter.

“This development is mainly due to the growth of our Running and Training category with the Ignite and Descendant product platforms,” the company explained.

In the Apparel segment, the sales growth in the quarter under review of 2.5 per cent over the prior fiscal’s second quarter currency adjusted to € 346.9 million was attributed to success of Training products.

Accessories sales went up 3.7 per cent currency adjusted to €159.1 million, supported by strong sales in Europe and North America.
