Under Armour / Notre Dame: Happy Anniversary

It was a year ago this very morning that Notre Dame's Jack Swarbrick and Under Armour's Kevin Plank stood at a podium (see link below) to announce the "most valuable shoe and apparel contract in college sports history."

In the 365 days since, Under Armour's "market cap" has increased dramatically.  Take a look at the growth:
  • January 21, 2014:  $8.96 billion
  • January 21, 2015:  $13.99 billion 

Under Armour's "market cap" has grown 56.1% -- since the announcement of the Notre Dame relationship.

Happy Anniversary to the Under Armour shareholders!
