Leading Dutch sports footwear and equipment manufacturer Head NV on Wednesday blamed lower sales of winter products and diving equipment for slight falls in fourth quarter and full-year revenues.

The company posted a 2.2 per cent fall in fourth quarter sales to $128 million from $130.9m in the year-ago period, while for the 12 months ended December 31, total revenues dipped 1.7 per cent to $392m from $398.6m in 2000.
