Puma, a German sportswear company, forecasted a currency-adjusted sales increase of at least 10% in 2022 but warned that COVID-19 limits and price inflation would restrict profit growth.

Puma predicts operating earnings of 600 million to 700 million euros in 2022, up from 557 million in 2021, and net earnings to rise in lockstep.
