Steven Nichols, Chairman of the Board and President, stated, “The past several years, domestic K-Swiss has suffered from declining future orders and sales. We have been aggressively addressing these trends with new product initiatives.
“While there was a positive impact from these initiatives in our June 30, 2012 backlog, it was not evident due to the declining trends in the overall domestic business. We are starting to see some overall positive results in our early domestic K-Swiss first quarter 2013 futures bookings.
“Additionally, we continue to execute on our focus initiatives for 2012, which are to reduce inventory and costs as well as drive improved performance from our Palladium brand.”
For 2012, the Company is presently forecasting full year consolidated revenues to be approximately $215 million to $220 million. Consolidated gross margin is expected to be approximately 36% to 37%. Selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to be about $107 to $109 million.
K-Swiss offers performance and lifestyle footwear and apparel for several categories under its California Sports umbrella including Tennis Heritage, California Fit (Running, Triathlon and Fitness) and California Youth.
