Management Discussion
  • Net Sales: Consolidated net sales increased $57.4 million, or 10%, to $625.6 million for the first quarter 2021 from $568.2 million for the comparable period in 2020. The increase primarily reflects higher consumer demand and economic recovery from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which during the comparable period in 2020 resulted in wholesale order cancellations, temporary store closures and lower consumer demand. Net sales increased across all regions and product categories, and primarily for the Columbia brand in the U.S. DTC and China businesses. In addition, our DTC e-commerce business grew 35% and represented 20% of our global net sales for the first quarter 2021, compared to 16% of our global net sales for the same period in 2020.
