Management Commentary

 

“The momentum of 2018 continued into the first quarter of 2019 with sales growth across every brand, category, geography, and channel,” stated John Walbrecht, president of Clarus. “This performance was the result of our continued dedication to product innovation, as well as better order fulfillment and effective marketing campaigns. This led to continued gross margin expansion and was combined with 350 basis points of selling, general, and administrative expense leverage, resulting in adjusted EBITDA margin increasing 370 basis points to 11.8%.

 

“A significant driver of our strong performance in the first quarter was the favorable winter weather that extended late into the season in both the U.S. and Europe, which drove 49% year-over-year growth within ski hardgoods. Aiding in this growth was the shipment of the new Black Diamond beacon product, which moved from the fourth quarter of last year into the first quarter of this year. Additionally, hardgoods in mountain and climb were both up 12%, further supporting a quarter that experienced solid performance across the board. Looking towards the remainder of the year, we are reiterating our 2019 financial outlook and I am confident in our team’s ability to successfully execute on our plan and continue to drive our brands forward.”
