Under Armour founder Kevin Plank responds to an explosive report alleging the company dumped goods at TJ Maxx to sweeten sales numbers
Justin Solomon/Getty Images In an email sent to employees on Friday and obtained by Business Insider, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank responded to an explosive report from The Wall Street Journal that alleged that the athletics giant had "pushed early shipments" and "dumped goods" at off-price chains to boost sales growth. "Given recent events that have entered the realm of public opinion without full context, it is disappointing to have our integrity and reputation called into question," Plank wrote in the email. Under Armour is being investigated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Department of Justice. Sources previously told The Journal that federal authorities were looking into whether the sportswear brand "shifted sales from quarter to quarter to appear healthier."

In an email sent to employees on Friday and obtained by Business Insider, Kevin Plank responded to an explosive report from The Wall Street Journal alleging that the athletics giant had "pushed early shipments" and "dumped goods" at off-price stores such as TJ Maxx to keep up its run of strong sales growth. "Given recent events that have entered the realm of public opinion without full context, it is disappointing to have our integrity and reputation called into question," Plank wrote in the email. "Amid a paradox of being constrained by an ongoing, two and a half year investigation and wanting to address media allegations raised by anonymous sources – our integrity is unshaken.

Fraud is top of mind for consumers going into the holiday season
This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Banking subscribers earlier this morning. To get this story plus others to your inbox each day, hours before they're published on Business Insider, click here. While the higher volume of shopping that occurs during the holiday season is a boon for retailers — comprising as much as 30% of their annual revenue — it can also amplify the chances of fraud, as consumers' payment information is used across more transactions than usual, according to a report from Terbim Labs sent to Business Insider Intelligence. And this is bad news for banks, as they're the most likely targets of blame once a breach compromises their customers' personal data: When asked who they'd hold responsible if their financial data was exposed, 17% of US consumers? said they'd hold their financial institution (FI) solely responsible, and 51% would blame both their FI and the original source of the breach (e.g. the retailer). Fraud is top of mind for consumers going into the holiday season, but they're largely confident in their bank's security measures for now. When asked about the types of fraud they're most concerned will occur during the coming holiday season, only 11% of US consumers? said none — respondents' least popular answer — while card skimming was the most popular response, with 42% concerned about this type of fraud.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Lemonade postponed its plans to go public this year due to concerns about current market conditionsStarling has hit the 1 million account milestone, placing it among the three most successful UK neobanksZego has become the first UK insurtech to get its own insurance license

Walmart's online grocery business is a key contributor to both its e-commerce and overall sales growth
This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Payments & Commerce subscribers earlier this morning. To get this story plus others to your inbox each day, hours before they're published on Business Insider, click here. The e-tailer's US business brought in $83.2 billion in sales in its fiscal Q3 2020 (ended October 31, 2019), growing 3.2% year-over-year (YoY), per an earnings release. Meanwhile, Walmart's US e-commerce growth surged 41% annually, making it a key driver for its overall business. This 41% YoY growth is an improvement from the 37% annual growth it posted last quarter, but a slight deceleration from the 43% YoY increase it recorded in the comparable period a year ago, and represents the sixth consecutive quarter where it posted 37%-43% YoY growth. The company also specifically noted that this quarter's performance included "strong growth in online grocery." Since Walmart is the top grocer in the US, online grocery can be a lucrative segment for it — and it has the potential to drive nongrocery e-commerce purchases, too. Many consumers already buy groceries from Walmart in-store, so the retailer is working to make sure its customers don't go elsewhere for online grocery.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Tesla has selected Berlin as the location to build its European gigafactoryStarling has hit the 1 million account milestone, placing it among the three most successful UK neobanksTata Group is seeking EV partners for Jaguar Land Rover
