PUMA announced a new partnership to grow the North American golf business with the formation of PUMA Golf North America, as the official distributor and licensee of PUMA Golf in the United States and Canada. PUMA Golf North America will become the official licensee, responsible for the North American distribution of the brand's footwear, apparel and accessories to on & off course golf specialty, sporting goods and online accounts. The long-term agreement will include dedicated resources for the golf category across merchandising, sales, marketing and operations. The newly formed organization will begin work on PUMA Golf effective immediately, with the in-store launch of the Spring 2010 collections and the sell-in for Fall/Winter 2010 quickly approaching.

Golf is a major priority in PUMA's global brand strategy and this new alliance will propel the category in North America as well as expand PUMA's distribution in the golf market.

"PUMA is committed to the golf business," said Bob Philion, Global Head of PUMA Golf for PUMA AG. "This move will take our business to new heights, strengthen our reach and focus our efforts with a core, dedicated team. North America is a critical market, and the formation of PUMA Golf North America will bring us accelerated growth."

"Golf is an important category for PUMA and we are excited with the opportunity to build and develop the business, ultimately making PUMA the most desirable golf brand in the industry," said Ted Fletcher, President of PUMA Golf North America. "We will build upon PUMA's existing success and momentum, maximizing the brand's marketing and sports assets and truly drive the golf category to a healthier and more robust business for the company."

PUMA Golf North America has assembled a team of seasoned experts with years of proven experience and success in the sport. Members of the executive team at PUMA Golf North America have been directly involved since PUMA's entry into the golf industry in 2006, building the category successfully in Canada.

"Golf is a perfect sport to showcase PUMA's sportlifestyle positioning," said Jay Piccola, President and General Manager for PUMA North America. "And having dedicated resources for the business is crucial. Ted Fletcher's team has the right action plan to nurture and build the golf business to where it needs to be and I'm confident this move will not only help the growth of PUMA Golf, but also allow PUMA to succeed even more in other sport and lifestyle categories."
