President and Chief Executive Officer Tim Boyle commented, "Our better
than expected second quarter and record first half results reflect
continued momentum across our brand portfolio. Our first half revenue
surpassed the one billion dollar mark for the first time in company
history led by growth in the Columbia brand driven by solid performance
in the United States across all channels as well as strong growth
internationally led by our Europe-direct business. We are also pleased
with strong first half performance for both prAna and SOREL, including a
positive consumer response to SOREL's Spring 2018 assortment and
progress in evolving to a year-round brand. With the strength in the
first half performance we are pleased to increase our full year 2018
financial outlook."

"These results and updated outlook demonstrate the strength of our
brands and our shift to become a more brand-led and consumer-focused
organization. Our powerful balance sheet, with $775 million in cash and
short-term investments, and no long-term debt, provides the flexibility
to invest in our growth initiatives as our major markets continue to
evolve. It is from this position of strength and confidence that we are
investing in our four strategic priorities to:

  • drive brand awareness and sales growth through increased, focused
    demand creation investments;
  • enhance consumer experience and digital capabilities in all our
    channels and geographies;
  • expand and improve global direct-to-consumer operations with
    supporting processes and systems; and
  • invest in our people and optimize our organization across our
    portfolio of brands."

"We are excited about the second half of 2018, which we expect to
include broad based revenue growth, increased demand creation spending,
and continued investment in our strategic priorities."

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

(All comparisons are between second quarter of 2018 and second quarter
of 2017, unless otherwise noted).

Net Sales

Second quarter 2018 consolidated net sales increased 21 percent (19
percent constant-currency) to a record $481.6 million. Non-GAAP net
sales increased 19 percent (17 percent constant-currency) to $474.1
million.

Geographies (See "Geographical Net Sales" table below)

  • U.S. net sales increased 18 percent, attributable to mid-teens percent
    growth in direct-to-consumer ("DTC") and high-teens percent growth in
    wholesale. The company operated 134 U.S. retail stores at June 30,
    2018 compared with 122 at the same time last year.
  • Latin America Asia Pacific ("LAAP") net sales increased 27 percent (22
    percent constant-currency) including the effect of the new revenue
    accounting standard. LAAP non-GAAP net sales increased 17 percent (13
    percent constant-currency) driven by growth from LAAP distributors,
    China and Japan, partially offset by a decline in Korea.
  • Europe Middle East and Africa ("EMEA") net sales increased 26 percent
    (21 percent constant-currency) primarily driven by high-20 percent
    growth in EMEA distributors and low-20 percent growth in Europe-direct
    (high-single-digit percent constant-currency).
  • Canada net sales increased 12 percent (7 percent constant-currency),
    primarily driven by DTC.

Brands (See "Brand Net Sales" table below)

  • Columbia brand net sales increased 22 percent (20 percent
    constant-currency) to $414.8 million.
  • SOREL brand net sales increased 90 percent (85 percent
    constant-currency) to $11.4 million.
  • prAna brand net sales increased 9 percent to $38.1 million.
  • Mountain Hardwear brand net sales decreased 1 percent to $16.0 million.

Product Categories (See "Product Category Net Sales" table below)

  • Apparel, Accessories and Equipment net sales increased 20 percent (18
    percent constant-currency) to $394.6 million.
  • Footwear net sales increased 26 percent (22 percent constant-currency)
    to $87.0 million.

Channels (See "Channel Net Sales" table below)

  • Wholesale net sales increased 23 percent (22 percent
    constant-currency) to $261.2 million.
  • DTC net sales increased 18 percent (16 percent constant-currency) to
    $220.4 million.

Profitability

Second quarter 2018 operating income increased to $9.7 million, or 2.0
percent of net sales, compared to an operating loss of $17.3 million, or
(4.3) percent of net sales, in the second quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP
second quarter 2018 operating income increased to $11.6 million, or 2.5
percent of net sales, compared to a non-GAAP operating loss of $13.2
million, or (3.3) percent of net sales, in the second quarter of 2017.

Second quarter 2018 net income increased to $9.7 million, or $0.14 per
diluted share compared to a net loss of $11.5 million, or $(0.17) per
share, in the second quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP second quarter 2018 net
income increased to $11.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared
with a non-GAAP net loss of $9.0 million, or $(0.13) per share, in the
second quarter of 2017.

Taxes

Second quarter 2018 income tax expense was $2.1 million, resulting in an
effective income tax rate of 16.6 percent, compared to an income tax
benefit of $4.5 million, and an effective tax rate of 28.6 percent, in
the second quarter of 2017. Our effective tax rate decreased compared to
the prior year due to the change in the U.S. tax rate for the current
year and increased tax benefits from stock-based compensation in the
current period compared to the same period in the prior year.

Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2018, cash and short-term investments totaled $774.7
million, compared to $622.2 million at June 30, 2017.

Consolidated inventories increased 2 percent to $570.5
million at June 30, 2018 compared to $559.5 million at June 30, 2017,
including an $11.1 million decrease due to a balance sheet
reclassification of the estimated cost of inventory associated with
sales returns into prepaid and other current assets under the new
revenue accounting standard. Excluding the impact of this classification
change, consolidated inventories increased 4 percent compared to June
30, 2017.

Cash Flow, Share Repurchases and Dividends

Operating cash flow for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $99.3
million, compared to $157.0 million in the six months ended June 30,
2017.

Capital expenditures totaled $29.6 million for the first six months
ended June 30, 2018, compared to $24.3 million in the six months ended
June 30, 2017.

Through the six months ended June 30, 2018, the company repurchased
500,290 shares of common stock for $40.1 million, or $80.17 per share
and paid $30.9 million in dividends.

At June 30, 2018, approximately $97.8 million remained available under
the current stock repurchase authorization, which does not obligate the
company to acquire any specific number of shares or to acquire shares
over any specified period of time.

The board of directors authorized a regular quarterly cash dividend
of $0.22 per share, payable on August 30, 2018 to shareholders of record
on August 16, 2018.

Updated Full Year 2018 Financial Outlook

All projections related to anticipated future results are
forward-looking in nature and are subject to risks and uncertainties
which may cause actual results to differ, perhaps materially.
Projections are predicated on normal seasonal weather globally. In
addition, our updated full year 2018 financial outlook assumes that
current macroeconomic and market conditions in key markets do not worsen.

The company's annual net sales are weighted more heavily toward the
Fall/Winter season, while operating expenses are more equally
distributed throughout the year, resulting in a highly seasonal
profitability pattern weighted toward the second half of the year.

The company currently expects 2018 net sales growth of approximately 9.0
to 10.5 percent (prior 8.0 to 10.0 percent), compared with 2017 net
sales of $2.47 billion. The company expects non-GAAP net sales growth of
approximately 7.5 to 9.0 percent (prior 6.5 to 8.5 percent) which
excludes approximately $40 million in net sales associated with the new
revenue accounting standard.

The company expects full year 2018 gross margin to improve by up to 140
basis points and non-GAAP gross margin to improve by up to 60 basis
points, excluding approximately $40 million of benefit to gross profit
associated with the new revenue accounting standard.

The company expects SG&A expenses to increase at a rate faster than net
sales, resulting in approximately 120 to 140 basis points of SG&A
expense deleverage (prior 150 to 170 basis points), and non-GAAP SG&A
expense deleverage of approximately 20 to 40 basis points (prior 30 to
50 basis points), excluding approximately $40 million in SG&A expenses
associated with the new revenue accounting standard, and approximately
$19 million (prior $23 million) in Project CONNECT program expenses and
discrete costs.

Based on the above assumptions, the company expects 2018 operating
income between approximately $286 million and $295 million (prior
between $275 million and $285 million), and non-GAAP operating income
between approximately $306 million and $315 million (prior between $299
million and $308 million), resulting in operating margin between
approximately 10.6 and 10.8 percent (prior between 10.3 and 10.5
percent), and non-GAAP operating margin between approximately 11.5 and
11.7 percent (prior between 11.4 and 11.5 percent).

The changes in revenue and expense classification associated with the
new revenue accounting standard are expected to have an approximately 15
basis point negative effect on reported operating margin rate for 2018,
but no effect on reported operating income.

The company expects an estimated full-year effective income tax rate of
approximately 22 percent, which reflects a lower U.S. federal statutory
income tax rate as a result of the TCJA and may be affected by further
refinement of the company's 2017 TCJA provisional estimates as well as
changes in the company's geographic mix of pre-tax income and other
discrete events that may occur during the year.

The company expects 2018 net income between approximately $223 million
and $230 million (prior between $213 million and $220 million), and
non-GAAP net income between approximately $239 million and $246 million
(prior between $231 million and $238 million), or diluted earnings per
share between approximately $3.15 and $3.25 (prior between $3.01 and
$3.11), and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share between $3.37 and $3.47
(prior between $3.27 and $3.37).

With respect to our 2018 financial outlook, non-GAAP financial measures
exclude net sales of approximately $40 million, with an offsetting
increase in SG&A expenses of approximately $40 million associated with
the new revenue accounting standard, as well as Project CONNECT program
expenses and discrete costs of approximately $19 million, $15 million
net of tax, or $0.21 per diluted share (prior $23 million, $18 million
net of tax, or $0.25 per diluted share). In the first half of 2018, we
incurred $1.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in incremental
provisional income tax expense related to the TCJA.

A public webcast of Columbia's earnings conference call will follow at

Supplemental Financial Information

Since Columbia Sportswear Company is a global company, the comparability
of its operating results reported in U.S. dollars is affected by foreign
currency exchange rate fluctuations because the underlying currencies in
which it transacts change in value over time compared to the U.S.
dollar. To supplement financial information reported in accordance with
GAAP, the company discloses constant-currency net sales information,
which is a non-GAAP financial measure, to provide a framework to assess
how the business performed excluding the effects of changes in the
exchange rates used to translate net sales generated in foreign
currencies into U.S. dollars. The company calculates constant-currency
net sales by translating net sales in foreign currencies for the current
period into U.S. dollars at the exchange rates that were in effect
during the comparable period of the prior year. Management believes that
this non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional and useful way of
viewing an aspect of our operations that, when viewed in conjunction
with our GAAP results, provides a more comprehensive understanding of
our business and operations. In particular, investors may find the
non-GAAP measures useful by reviewing our net sales results without the
volatility in foreign currency exchange rates. This non-GAAP financial
measure also facilitates management's internal comparisons to our
historical net sales results and comparisons to competitors' net sales
results.

Additionally, this document includes references to other non-GAAP
financial measures that exclude increased net sales and gross profit,
and offsetting increased SG&A expenses, associated with the new revenue
accounting standard, as well as program expenses, discrete costs and
associated tax effects related to Project CONNECT and TCJA-related
income tax expense. The related tax effects of program expenses and
discrete costs related to Project CONNECT were calculated using the
respective statutory tax rates for applicable jurisdictions. Management
believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enable useful and
meaningful comparisons of our operating performance from period to
period because they exclude the effects of the aforementioned items
above that may not be indicative of our core operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures, including constant-currency net
sales, should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior
to, our financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The
company provides a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most
directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with
GAAP. See "Supplemental Financial Information" tables included below.
The non-GAAP financial measures and constant-currency information
presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by
other companies.

dependence on independent manufacturers and suppliers and our ability to
source finished products and components at competitive prices from them;
the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts; intense

to time and it is not possible for the company to predict or assess the
effects of all such factors or the extent to which any factor, or
combination of factors, may cause results to differ materially from
those contained in any forward-looking statement.

(1)   As of January 1, 2018, the company adopted a new revenue accounting
standard, Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606 (ASC 606),
which requires wholesale sales returns reserves, estimated
chargebacks and markdowns, and other provisions for customer refunds
to be presented as accrued liabilities on the balance sheet rather
than netted within accounts receivable. As such, the June 30, 2018
accounts receivable and accrued liabilities balances include a
gross-up of $37,466 reflecting this change
.
(2) In conjunction with the adoption of ASC 606, the estimated cost of
inventory associated with sales returns reserves is now presented
within prepaid expenses and other current assets rather than
Inventories. As a result, the June 30, 2018 balance sheet reflects a
