Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Sales in the second quarter of 2014 increased 18% to $34.4 million compared to $29.2 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to strong growth in Black Diamond hard goods and apparel, as well as from POC's spring product line-up.

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was 35.9% compared to 36.2% in the year-ago quarter, with the decrease due to the mix in product and channel distribution. During the quarter, sales increased 28% with the Company's independent global distributors. These sales are at lower average gross margins given the distributors incur all selling and distribution costs.
