Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Total sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 increased 24% to $60.4 million compared to $48.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase was attributed to strong growth across all Black Diamond brands and major geographies, as well as the launch of Black Diamond apparel and an increase in Gregory's sales in Japan due to the transition of the distribution assets from Kabushiki Kaisha A&F.

Gross margin was 38.0% in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to 36.3% in the year-ago quarter. Although gross margin increased compared to the same period last year, there are several offsetting factors to consider. For comparative purposes, gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2012 included $1.2 million for inventory fair value of purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisitions of POC and PIEPS. Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2013 included unfavorable production and shipping variances, discontinued merchandise and inventory adjustments associated with older, discontinued winter season product.
