K•Swiss Inc. announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The operations of FORM Athletics are accounted for as a discontinued operation in the Company’s financial results and are excluded from futures orders data for the prior-year periods.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $1,926,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $15,418,000, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the prior-year period. Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $20,263,000, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $45,286,000, or $1.28 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

For the third quarter of 2012, total worldwide revenues decreased 16.0% to $67,551,000 compared with $80,456,000 in the prior-year period. Domestic revenues decreased 31.8% to $22,301,000 in the third quarter, and international revenues decreased 5.3% to $45,250,000 for the same period.

Total worldwide revenues for the first nine months of 2012 decreased 16.8% to $181,621,000 from $218,194,000 for the first nine months of 2011. Domestic revenues decreased 35.8% to $61,861,000 in the first nine months of 2012, and international revenues decreased 1.7% to $119,760,000.

Futures Orders

Worldwide futures orders with start ship dates from October 2012 through March 2013 decreased 8.6% to $70,003,000 at September 30, 2012, from $76,598,000 the previous year. Domestic futures orders decreased 18.6% to $21,556,000 at September 30, 2012, from $26,494,000 the previous year. International futures orders decreased 3.3% to $48,447,000 at September 30, 2012, from $50,104,000 the previous year.

Steven Nichols, Chairman of the Board and President, stated, “The third quarter results benefitted from the positive contribution from our Palladium brand as well as disciplined expense and inventory controls. While we continue to gain momentum and demonstrate product innovation with the K•Swiss brand, we have yet to convert these efforts into a sustainable futures order trend.”

2012 Guidance

For 2012, the Company is presently forecasting full year consolidated revenues to be approximately $221 million to $223 million. Consolidated gross margin is expected to be approximately 35% to 36%. Selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to be about $105 to $107 million.
