It’s no coincidence that Under Armour bills itself as the underdog to sportswear rivals Nike and Adidas. (If there’s a break in the parallelism, it’s with Under Armour’s sponsorship of entrenched NFL star quarterback Tom Brady, the biggest outlier in the company’s endorsement roster.)

Even with sustained growth, it will be years before Under Armour is anywhere close to Nike, let alone near unseating it. But it’s working on it. Sales have grown by at least 20% year over year for 21 consecutive quarters.

Under Armour sales growth

International sales, which make up 11% of Under Armour’s revenue, are growing sharply. In the second quarter they were up 93%. The Baltimore-based company plans to open several stores overseas in the coming months, particularly in China. (It’s sending Curry on a week-long tour there.) The company also reported that it’s now profitable in Europe, where it just opened a new office, one of 17 outside the US.

“The mission here is to be the next great global brand and you’re going to see us bite, crawl, and scratch and do everything we can to make that happen,” Plank said on the call.

It’s got a way to go, of course. But it’s on the right track.
