  • 32. Assumptions for Countries with Intermediate and Low IncomeCountries with intermediateand low income spend lessper capita on sports thandeveloped countries. Spending on sport requires leisure time above money, and leisure time is a feature for rich country populations. The question - how much less? - is being simulated by NPD with the help of external sources 32 Proprietary and Confidential

  • 35. What Makes Our Data Reliable? Independancy from retailers and manufacturers in the data as the recollection of NPD data used for the survey is based on consumer input ; there are many advantages behind an independent external source; one advantage is that the research can be conducted on an on-going basis without being dependant on the industry for data recollection. NPD is Measurement of the market through representative sample in each country available and statistical projection as opposed to other methodologies based on interviews of key brands and retailers from the industry. Comparable data from a time perspective : NPD is sell out not sell-in. We are tracking sales, not feelings or intentions to purchase. Comparable data from a product scope perspective: NPD used harmonized definitions of products in its measurement which is never the case from interviews based methodology. Complete data : NPD tracking allows to consolidate the branded market and the non branded market. NPD also allows to consolidate private labels and very small brands not only the majors. Granularity: NPD is is the unique company recollecting sporting goods data at the maximum granularity available which is item level (one pair of shoes, one garment, one purchase) ; market size is obtained by aggregation as opposed to “guesstimates” built up from interviews conducted within the industry. 35 Proprietary and Confidential

  • 37. Methodology: Other AssumptionsFootwear Apparel Equipment BikesWe project the split observed in tracked countries on simulated countries, taking into account some factors that matter: – Latitude: Less bikes, more indoor activities, more warm/expensive apparel in northern latitudes. – Level of income: bicycles are a form of transportation in day-to- day life in countries where the population cannot afford a car or a motorbike. – Landscape: Presence of seaside, of mountains. 37 Proprietary and Confidential
  • 38. Definitions are Slightly Different Between the CountriesDefinition for the United States &Canada We are tracking total apparel & footwear Sport & sport inspired apparel (also called Active wear in the US) is obtained through a filter on the data not through consumer perception Constructed definition based on type of apparel, where purchased, and intended use The additional filters «where purchased» and «intended use» are activated only for some garments which are not obviously belonging to the sport universe (casual pants, turtle necks…) 38 Proprietary and Confidential
  • 39. Definitions are Slightly Different Between the CountriesDefinition for Japan We are not tracking total apparel & footwear. The survey is tracking Sport and Sport inspired shoes and garments –similar to Europe- NPD does not have a panel representative of total JAPAN. We have a panel representative of TOKYO+ OSAKA which represent roughly 40% of the total japanese population. We are also tracking some equipment categories in Japan 39 Proprietary and Confidential
  • 40. Definitions are Slightly Different Between the CountriesDefinition in Europe big 5 countries  We are not tracking total apparel & footwear. The survey is tracking Sport and Sport inspired shoes and garments –similar to Japan-  In apparel, survey choices exclude some garments that are 99% not used for sport practice (eg: jeans, city wear).  It is consumer perception and type of garments suggested which finally defines the market size. What is important, is the respondent’s perception of the garment/shoes purchased: Does it relate to sports (then declared) or not (then not declared).  It does not matter if the product has been purchased in specialized sport distribution.  Therefore, the sports territory is not defined by manufacturers or retailers but by consumers. 40 Proprietary and Confidential
  • 41. Definitions are Slightly Different Between the Countries Definition in Sweden & Netherlands We are tracking total apparel Sport & sport inspired apparel is obtained through a filter on the data not through consumer perception – All purchases used for sport regardless of apparel type category – All specific sport brand sales (closed list) regardless of usage and apparel type category – All purchases coming from the sport retailers. 41 Proprietary and Confidential
  • 42. Why Do We Use Purchasing Power Parity for GDP? A purchasing power parity change rate is intended to equalize the purchasing power of different currencies. These special exchange rates are often used to compare the standards of living of two or more countries. The adjustments are meant to give a better picture than comparing gross domestic products (GDP) using market exchange rates. Without a PPP exchange rate the GDP may not accurately measure differences in income and consumption. Market exchange rates fluctuate widely, but many people believe that PPP exchange rates reflect the long run equilibrium value. The distortions caused by using market rates are accentuated because prices of non-traded goods and services are usually lower in poorer economies. For example, a U.S. dollar exchanged and spent in China will buy much more than a dollar spent in the United States. The differences between PPP and market exchange rates can be significant. For example, GDP per capita in China is about USD 1,500, while on a PPP basis, it is about USD 6,200. At the other extreme, Japan’s nominal GDP per capita is around USD 37,600, but its PPP figure is only USD 31,400. 42 Proprietary and Confidential
