HEAD NV net revenues down by 12.5%
Feb '08
Head N.V. a leading global manufacturer and marketer of sports equipment, announced the following results.

Johan Eliasch, Chairman and CEO, commented:
“As anticipated, the fourth quarter results have been negatively impacted by the performance of the Winter Sports Division.

The poor snow in the 06/07 skiing season has resulted in lower sales and utilisation of our facilities. The sales in this division for the three months were down by 19.3% and profit margins were also lower compared with the prior year.

Whilst the financial performance of the Winter Sports Division has been heavily impacted by the market conditions, the race team has demonstrated the excellent performance of the products with 11 world cup victories and 36 top three placements so far this season dominating the speed disciplines.

In the Racquet Sports Division sales were up 4.2% in the last quarter due to new product introductions partly offset by strengthening of the Euro against the US dollar. Gross Profit of the division has improved due to the impact of the MicroGel series and cost reduction initiatives.

The Diving Division continues to perform well and we believe has gained market share during 2007; revenues are up 4.6% in the three month period compared with prior year.

Overall, as anticipated and communicated to the market in May, the full year resulted in a small operating loss which amounted to €0.7m after restructuring costs.

Our continual investment in new athletes, technological product development, and cost reduction will be of key importance during 2008 in order to return the company to profitability.“
