Under Armour Inc. (UAA) reported its latest financial results Q1 on Friday. The US sportswear equipment company fell short of analyst estimates for the quarter, sending the stock in free fall.

Analysts were expecting earnings per share of $0.04 for the quarter, however, Under Armour reported an unexpected loss per share of -$0.01 per share.

“Having successfully executed a multi-year transformation and after delivering a record year in 2021 – we are continuing to serve the needs of athletes amid an increasingly more uncertain marketplace,” Under Armour President and CEO, Patrik Frisk commented on the latest results.

“As global supply challenges and emergent COVID-19 impacts in China eventually normalize, we are confident that the strength of the Under Armour brand coupled with our powerful growth strategy positions us well to deliver sustainable, profitable returns to shareholders over the long-term,” Frisk concluded.
