Management Commentary

"2012 was a transformational year for Black Diamond, filled with a number of significant achievements," said Peter Metcalf, president and CEO of Black Diamond. "Not only did we achieve record revenue and continue to grow organically, but we executed against our strategic objectives. This includes the introduction of our fall 2013 apparel line to the trade and the establishment of our own ski manufacturing operation. We also agreed to acquire the Japanese distribution assets of Gregory, established our own distribution in Japan, and entered one new primary product category and six new product niches with the acquisitions of POC and PIEPS.
