"During the third quarter, with the help of a leading consulting firm, we conducted a global profitability study across all product categories and geographies. We are still integrating the conclusions into our long-term thinking about the depth and breadth of certain categories and geographies. We are developing a better sense for the cost of a single SKU and expect this work will drive better marginal profitability in the out years and enhance working capital."We are acknowledging the Black Diamond and POC brands as our fastest growing assets and worthy of investment to accelerate our organic growth. More specifically, we believe that our Black Diamond apparel and POC lifestyle businesses display extraordinary growth potential and that over time they are likely our most efficient and cost-effective use of capital.
