Amer Sports Interim Report Q3/2014

“We continued to deliver solid growth and improvement in Q3. The growth was driven by our strategic focus areas, primarily Apparel and Footwear and Business to Consumer, as well as continuous momentum in Fitness and Sports Instruments. Winter Sports Equipment deliveries were stable vs. previous year due to improved agility in our supply chain. In Ball Sports, we are executing the new turnaround strategy with early positive impact on EBIT, driven by our Gross Margin intervention to re-set the base for profitable future growth."

- Heikki Takala, CEO, Amer Sports
