Interim report Q2/2014
The second quarter is typically a low sales quarter for Amer Sports,
nevertheless we continued to deliver a solid 4% currency neutral growth, driven
by Apparel and Footwear, Business to Consumer, China as well as Cycling and
Fitness. We continued to define and execute a new strategy for Ball Sports,
with the objective to first improve the gross margins and then re-ignite
profitable growth. In this context, we discontinued some unprofitable Wilson
product lines, and this affected our Ball Sports sales.
