Adidas Looking To Sell Its Golf Brands

Only months after claiming to that their support of their golf brands had “never been stronger”, German sportswear maker adidas announced on Wednesday that they are seeking a buyer for three of their golf brands, TaylorMade, Adams and Ashworth.

Via The Sports Business Journal

adidas today said that it is “actively seeking a buyer for parts of its golf unit, after years of slumping sales.” The TaylorMade-adidas Golf, Adams and Ashworth brands, which “largely produce golf hardware,” are on offer. The company said that it “would continue to focus on golf apparel and footwear” through its adidas Golf brand. This comes after adidas late last month published preliminary Q1 earnings and “raised its guidance” for ’16. Today, it also “published regional figures, which showed that sales in North America had been rising 20%, compared with the same period a year earlier”(WSJ.com, 5/4).
