Under Armour Fail to Disclose “Pull Forwards of Revenue”

Georgia Lorraine Ellenwood, Canadian Athlete

By the second half of 2015, Under Armour’s internal revenue and revenue growth forecasts for 2015 Q3 and Q4 began to indicate shortfalls from analysts’ revenue estimates.  The company was not meeting internal sales projections for North America, and warm winter weather was negatively impacting sales of Under Armour’s higher-priced cold weather apparel.

For 6 consecutive quarters beginning in Q3 2015, Under Armour brought forward a total of $408 million in existing orders that customers had requested be shipped in future quarters.

Under Armour misleadingly attributed its revenue growth during this period to various factors without disclosing to investors material information about the impacts of its pull forward practices.   Using these undisclosed pull forwards, Under Armour was able to meet analysts’ revenue estimates.

 

United States SEC Violation

Under Armour

Under Armour violated the antifraud provisions of Section 17(a)(2) and (3) of the Securities Act of 1933, as well as certain reporting provisions of the federal securities laws. Without admitting or denying the findings in the SEC’s order, Under Armour agreed to cease and desist from further violations and to pay a $9 million penalty.

The SEC’s investigation was conducted by L. James Lyman, Jeffrey Lyons, and Donna Walker, with assistance from Gregory Kasper and Nicholas Heinke of the Trial Unit, and supervised by Ian Karpel, Jason Burt, and Kurt Gottschall.

 

Director of the United States SEC’s Denver Regional Office, Kurt Gottschall:

“When public companies describe how they achieved financial results, they must not misstate any information that is material to investors.

By using pull forwards for several consecutive quarters to meet analysts’ revenue targets while attributing its revenue growth to other factors, Under Armour created a misleading picture of the drivers of its financial results and concealed known uncertainties concerning its business.”
