Quiksilver Inc. announced operating results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full year ended October 31, 2011. Revenues grew 10% to $545.2 million as compared to $495.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 and grew 6% in constant currency. The company earned Pro-forma Adjusted EBITDA of $57.1 million in the quarter compared to $59.5 million earned in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

Pro-forma income from continuing operations was $10.8 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $21.8 million, or $0.12 per share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. Pro-forma income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 excludes $11.4 million of non-cash asset impairment charges, $8.0 million of restructuring costs and $76.6 million of income primarily related to the settlement of the company's French tax audit.

Including these pro-forma adjustments, income from continuing operations was $67.9 million, or $0.38 per share, compared to a loss of $23.1 million, or $0.15 per share, in the fourth quarter a year ago.

Consolidated net revenues for the full year of fiscal 2011 grew 6% to $1.95 billion compared to $1.84 billion in fiscal 2010 and grew 3% in constant currency. Pro-forma income from continuing operations for the full year of fiscal 2011 was $30.8 million, or $0.17 per share, and excludes a net $52.1 million of special charges.

Of this amount, $86.0 million represents non-cash asset impairment charges, $18.7 million represents valuation allowances provided against deferred tax assets, $10.7 million represents the write-off of deferred debt issuance costs associated with previous financings and $5.9 million represents restructuring costs.

These charges were partially offset by $69.3 million of income related to the tax settlement in the fourth quarter. Including these amounts, loss from continuing operations was $21.3 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to $11.5 million, or $0.09 per share, for the full year of fiscal 2010.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “We're pleased to report another quarter of solid financial results and we exit 2011 in great shape to deliver improved performance in 2012 in line with our long-term plans. “

“We made investments in fiscal 2011 to deliver better products from each of our brands, but we are most encouraged by the performance of our Roxy brand, which continues to gain traction in the marketplace and whose revenue performance compared to prior periods has improved steadily in each of the past five quarters. Additionally, despite particularly challenging consumer environments in parts of Europe and Australasia, we continue to see solid growth in our emerging and developing markets around the world.”

Net revenues in the Americas increased 13% during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 to $249.8 million from $221.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. As measured in U.S. dollars and reported in the financial statements, European net revenues increased 11% during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 to $212.5 million from $190.7 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. In constant currency, European segment net revenues increased 6% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.
