PUMA publishes preliminary results for the first quarter 2017 and raises full-year guidance for 2017


Herzogenaurach, Germany, 12 April 2017 - Today, PUMA SE has published preliminary results for the first quarter 2017 and raised its guidance for the full-year 2017.

In the first quarter 2017, consolidated sales increased currency adjusted by approx. 15% (approx. 18% in reported terms) to EUR 1,005 million compared to EUR 852 million in the first quarter last year. The operating result (EBIT) in the first quarter 2017 increased by approx. 70% to approx. EUR 70 million (Q1 2016: EUR 41.3 million).

In light of the strong first-quarter increase in sales and profitability as well as the positive business outlook for the current year 2017, PUMA raises the full-year guidance for its consolidated sales and operating result (EBIT). The Management now expects that sales will increase currency adjusted at a low double-digit percentage rate (previous guidance: currency adjusted increase at a high single-digit percentage rate). The operating result (EBIT) is now anticipated to come in between EUR 185 million and EUR 200 million (previous guidance: between EUR 170 million and EUR 190 million). In line with the previous guidance, the Management still expects that net earnings will improve significantly in 2017.

A complete overview of PUMA's business development for the first quarter 2017 will be published on April 25, 2017.
