Today, at a press conference at the world of sports, we announced our 2013 Full Year Results (check out the key findings below). This presentation also marks the date for our Investor Relations team to close the previous year by publishing a comprehensive report on our business as a DAX listed company. Obviously this report deals with a lot of interesting in-depth financial facts and figures, but has also a lot to offer which goes beyond that. I definitely recommend checking the report out here. To tell you what our Group is all about in an even simpler and more snack-able way, we also created an infographic which you can download and share following this link.
Here are some more quick-facts from our annual report:
- We finished the year on a high note with strong growth in the fourth quarter.
- Overall, 2013 was a successful year for the adidas Group – despite external and internal challenges. 839 million euro is the highest net income in the history of our Group. Currency translation effects had a significant negative impact on sales in euro term.
- Our innovation “Boost” helped us to win market-share in performance running. 2013 was the third year of double-digit growth in running for brand adidas.
- Herbert Hainer confirmed at today’s presentation, that we are operationally in very good shape and that 2014 will be another year of growth for the adidas Group.
