Guidance update

Under Armour’s management has forecast a low single-digit rate increase in its fiscal 2018 sales. It expects 25% growth in international markets to offset the mid-single-digit decline in North America sales.

Its gross margin is expected to increase 50 basis points to 45.5% of sales since the company expects to benefit from lower promotional activities, declining product costs, a favorable shift in channel mix, and positive changes in foreign currency.
