On Tuesday, American sportswear manufacturer Under Armour Inc is scheduled to release its fourth-quarter earnings report on Tuesday. While some analysts have forecasted a possibly weak quarter from the company, the sportswear company is also expected to make announcements regarding any plans that will lead to a turnaround on its performance.

Low Expectations

Wall Street analysts are expecting the company to post a mostly flat revenue for their fourth-quarter report with some stating that the company is about to face one of its most difficult year as a public company.

The Baltimore-based company then forecasted a full-year adjusted earnings of $0.18 per share to $0.20 per share down from their previous forecast of $0.37 to $0.40 per share along with a weak single-digit revenue growth attributed to the demand and operational challenges in North America as well as their enterprise resource planning system and related service levels implementation.

For the fourth quarter, Under Armour has been forecasted to post losses of around $0.02 per share to profits of $0.03 per share while its revenue is set to remain mostly flat at around $1.3 billion while its full-year earnings are expected to at least rise by a weak single-digit from the previously forecasted growth rate of around 9% to 11% while its full-year earnings are expected to come between $0.18 to $0.20 per share.
