LONDON — Adidas is more confident about sales this year as it notes stronger-than-expected demand for its products and a “healthy brand momentum.”

The German sportswear retailer expects currency-neutral sales to rise at a “high-teens” rate this year, with a “significant” acceleration already in the second quarter, the company said on Friday.

“This acceleration will be fueled by an array of innovative product releases,” Adidas said in a statement. It expects major sport events, such as UEFA Euro and the Copa America, will also support the business.

The company reported net income of 502 million euros ($605 millio) for the first quarter of this year, up from 26 million euros in 2020. Currency-neutral sales at the company rose 27% over the period.

This is a breaking news story and it is being updated.
