In the 4th quarter sales were negatively impacted by the Sports Authority bankruptcy, resulting in excess inventory and steep discounting.

Among the top three sports brand companies, Under Armour has grown its market share from 1% in 2005 to 8% in 2016.

Gross margins for the company are in line with those of its competitors. According to analysts, Under Armour will double its current profit margin as it matures, achieves greater scale, and benefits from a lower tax-rate due to larger international profits.
