Rocky Brands, Inc. announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009.

For the fourth quarter of 2009, net sales were $61.7 million versus net sales of $66.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The Company reported net income of $0.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share in 2009, versus a net loss of $2.2 million, or ($0.41) per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2008.

The Company reported Non-GAAP earnings of $0.24 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2009, excluding restructuring charges of ($0.08) per diluted share associated with the closing of fifteen mini warehouses that the Company operated under its Lehigh retail division and the relocation of its customer service center to Nelsonville from Nashville compared to earnings of $0.13 per diluted share in the fourth of quarter 2008, excluding non-cash charges of ($0.54) per diluted share for the write-down of the Lehigh and Gates trademarks. A reconciliation of income per diluted share on a GAAP basis to income per diluted share excluding the restructuring and non-cash impairment charges is shown below.

Mike Brooks, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented “Throughout 2009 we focused on taking costs out of our business and improving the efficiency of our organization. Our efforts led to fourth quarter operating results that exceeded expectations and represented a solid ending to the year. We are very pleased with our bottom line performance compared with the year ago quarter and equally excited about the improvement in our balance sheet. Better management of our receivables and inventories allowed us to significantly reduce borrowings on our credit facility during the past 12-months and resulted in year-end debt levels down 37%. At the same time, we have made meaningful progress restructuring our retail division as well as developing innovative new product lines and brand extensions for our wholesale channels. We begin 2010 optimistic about our growth prospects and committed to leveraging our leaner operating platform to drive enhanced profitability.”

Fourth Quarter Review

Net sales for the fourth quarter decreased to $61.7 million compared to $66.0 million a year ago. Wholesale sales for the fourth quarter decreased 7.3% to $45.9 million compared to $49.5 million for the same period in 2008. Retail sales for the fourth quarter were $12.5 million compared to $15.4 million for the same period last year. Retail sales were down year-over-year as a result of the ongoing transition to more internet driven transactions, and the decision to remove a portion of our Lehigh mobile stores from operation to help lower costs as discussed below. Military segment sales for the fourth quarter were $3.3 million versus $1.2 million for the same period in 2008. Fourth quarter 2009 military sales include the initial shipments of insulated boots under the $29 million blanket purchase agreement the company received from the General Services Administration (GSA) in July 2009.
