Group revenues increased 4% both on a currency-neutral basis and in euro terms to almost EUR 2.7 billion. As a result of increased gross margin and operating expense leverage, Group operating profit increased to EUR 260 million in the first quarter of 2010 (2009: EUR 58 million). The settlement of a lawsuit and the divestiture of a trademark both contributed a low-double-digit million euro amount each to this development. Net income attributable to shareholders increased to EUR 168 million (2009: EUR 5 million). Diluted earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.80 in the quarter (2009: EUR 0.04). Following the stronger than expected first quarter performance, Management now forecasts full year earnings per share to reach a level between EUR 2.05 and EUR 2.30 (previously: between EUR 1.90 and EUR 2.15). More detail on the revised outlook will be given with the publication of quarterly results on May 4, 2010. end of announcement euro adhoc -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ots Originaltext: Adidas AG Im Internet recherchierbar: Further inquiry note: Dennis Weber Senior Investor Relations Manager Tel.: +49 (0)9132 84 4989 E-Mail: Branche: Recreational & Sports goods ISIN: DE0005003404 WKN: 500340 Index: DAX, CDAX, HDAX, Prime All Share Börsen: Frankfurt / regulated dealing/prime standard Berlin / free trade Hamburg / free trade Stuttgart / free trade Düsseldorf / free trade Hannover / free trade München / free trade
