Management Discussion
  • The Company’s net revenues in the second quarter of 2022 increased $202.1 million (or 22.1%) to $1,115.7 million compared to $913.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. This increase reflects increases in all three operating segments and major geographic regions, as well as the unfavorable impact of changes in foreign currency of $38.6 million. Net revenues by operating segment and major geographic region are presented below (dollars in millions):
  • •The 24.5% increase in net revenues in the United States was primarily driven by growth in the Topgolf business resulting from the opening of new venues, strong walk-in traffic and an increase in event bookings, combined with strong demand for TravisMathew apparel and golf equipment products.
  • •The 16.5% increase in Europe was primarily driven by strong sales of Jack Wolfskin apparel, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of changes in foreign currency.
