Fourth quarter apparel net revenues increased 25% to $405 million compared
with $323 million in the same period of the prior year, driven primarily by
Fleece, which included a broader expansion of the Storm platform across the
category.  Fourth quarter footwear net revenues increased 43% to $45 million
from $31 million in the prior year's period, primarily driven by new 2012
running styles, including UA Spine, and strong sell-in of new 2013 baseball
cleats.  Fourth quarter accessories net revenues increased 16% to $43 million
from $37 million in the prior year's period.  Direct-to-Consumer net revenues,
which represented 39% of total net revenues for the fourth quarter, grew 29%
year-over-year. 

Kevin Plank, Chairman and CEO of Under Armour, Inc., stated, "We closed 2012
strongly, delivering net revenue growth of at least 20% for the eleventh
consecutive quarter in Q4 by building upon key apparel technology platforms
like Storm Fleece and Charged Cotton.  Our ability to bring practical
innovation to our consumer across a broad range of product drove our 25% net
revenue growth in 2012 and positions us well for 2013 and beyond.  With these
strong results in hand, we are well on our way toward delivering on the goal
established at our June 2011 Investor Day to more than double our net revenues
from 2010 to 2013."

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 50.3% compared with 51.6% in
the prior year's quarter, primarily reflecting less favorable sales mix and
higher air freight costs.  Selling, general and administrative expenses as a
percentage of net revenues were 34.2% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared
with 37.9% in the prior year's period, largely reflecting leverage of
corporate services and marketing expenses.  Marketing expenses for the fourth
quarter of 2012 were 9.7% of net revenues compared with 10.9% in the prior
year's quarter.  Fourth quarter operating income grew 48% to $82 million
compared with $55 million in the prior year's period. 

Review of Full Year Operating Results 
For the full year 2012, net revenues increased 25% to $1.835 billion compared
with $1.473 billion in the prior year and compared with the Company's prior
outlook of $1.82 billion.  Diluted earnings per share for the full year
increased 31% to $1.21 per share on weighted average common shares outstanding
of 106 million compared with $0.92 per share on weighted average common shares
outstanding of 105 million in the prior year.

Apparel net revenues increased 23% to $1.385 billion compared with $1.122
billion in the prior year, led by the Training category which included the
expansions of both the Charged Cotton and Storm platforms.  Footwear net
revenues increased 32% to $239 million during 2012 compared to $182 million in
2011, reflecting the debut of new running styles, including UA Spine, and
strength across our cleated businesses.  Accessories net revenues increased
25% to $166 million during 2012 compared to $132 million in 2011, primarily
driven by headwear and bags.  Direct-to-Consumer net revenues, which
represented 29% of total net revenues for the year compared to 27% in 2011,
grew 34% over the prior year.

Gross margin for 2012 was 47.9% compared with 48.4% in 2011, largely
reflecting less favorable sales mix and higher air freight costs.  Selling,
general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 36.5%
for 2012 compared with 37.3% for 2011, reflecting leverage of corporate
services and marketing expenses.  Marketing expense for 2012 was 11.2% of net
revenues compared with 11.4% in the prior year.  Operating income grew 28% to
$209 million in 2012 compared with $163 million in the prior year and compared
with the Company's prior outlook of $207 million.

Balance Sheet Highlights 
Cash and cash equivalents increased 95% to $342 million at December 31, 2012
compared with $175 million at December 31, 2011.  The Company had no
borrowings outstanding under its $300 million revolving credit facility at
December 31, 2012.  Inventory at December 31, 2012 decreased 2% to $319
million compared with $324 million at December 31, 2011.  Long-term debt
decreased to $62 million at December 31, 2012 from $78 million at December 31,
2011. 

Updated 2013 Outlook 
Based on current visibility, the Company expects 2013 net revenues in the
range of $2.20 billion to $2.22 billion, representing growth of 20% to 21%
over 2012, and 2013 operating income in the range of $255 million to $257
million, representing growth of 22% to 23% over 2012.  The Company expects an
effective tax rate of 39.0% to 39.5% for the full year, compared to an
effective tax rate of 36.7% for 2012.  The Company anticipates fully diluted
weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 108 million to 109
million for 2013.

Mr. Plank concluded, "In the year ahead, we will drive growth by
re-invigorating core categories like Baselayer, continuing to expand our
consumer base in Women's and Youth, and introducing the next wave of Under
Armour innovation through product such as Armour39 that will debut in the next
month.  We will open the next generation of Under Armour specialty retail in
mid-February in our home city of Baltimore, while we are prioritizing our
growth strategies in key markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.  We will
also continue to invest in the right talent, infrastructure, and processes to
ensure that we deliver balanced financial results well into the future."
