Fourth quarter pro-forma income from continuing operations was $3.2 million or $0.02 per share, and excludes $22.3 million in restructuring and retail store impairment charges, partially offset by a tax adjustment of $3.3 million.

A reconciliation of GAAP results to pro-forma results is provided in the accompanying tables. Including these charges, the loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $15.7 million or $0.12 per share, compared to a loss of $13.8 million or $0.11 per share in the same quarter a year ago. Net revenues and income from continuing operations for all periods exclude the results of the Rossignol wintersports and golf equipment businesses which are reported as discontinued operations.

Consolidated net revenues for the full year of fiscal 2009 decreased 13% to $1.98 billion compared to $2.26 billion in fiscal 2008. Full year pro-forma income from continuing operations for fiscal 2009, adjusted to exclude restructuring and impairment charges and tax credits, was $4.6 million or $0.04 per share. For the full year, the loss from continuing operations for fiscal 2009, including these charges and credits, was $73.2 million or $0.58 per share, compared to income of $65.5 million or $0.51 per share in fiscal 2008. A reconciliation of GAAP results to pro-forma results is provided in the accompanying tables.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “Our fourth quarter was very challenging, as retailers bought conservatively for the holiday season and traffic in our own retail stores remained sluggish through October. In that context, we were pleased that our results were somewhat better than we expected. We also accomplished a number of important business objectives in the quarter. We reinforced our product leadership, maintained and even expanded our leading market share positions and staged a number of major events further connecting our brands with the broad group of consumers that either participate in or are inspired by action sports.”

Net revenues in the Americas segment decreased 22% during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 to $239.5 million from $306.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. In constant currency, European segment net revenues decreased 4% compared to the prior year. As reported in the financial statements, European segment net revenues decreased 2% during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 to $211.4 million from $216.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.
