Quiksilver Inc announced operating results for the first quarter ended January 31, 2010. Consolidated net revenues from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 decreased 2% to $432.7 million from $443.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. The pro-forma consolidated loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 was $2.5 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.07 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2009.

The pro-forma loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 excludes a $3.0 million severance charge, primarily in the Americas. Including this charge, the loss from continuing operations was $5.4 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to $65.9 million, or $0.52 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2009. A reconciliation of GAAP results to pro-forma results is included in the accompanying tables. Net revenues and the loss from continuing operations for all periods exclude the results of the Rossignol wintersports business, which was sold in November 2008 and is reported as discontinued operations.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “We're pleased to deliver first quarter financial results that exceed our prior expectations. We have taken bold steps over the past several quarters to improve our operations and with continuing hopes for economic stabilization and improvement; we are poised to benefit from any upturn in discretionary consumer spending. While we recognize that U.S. retail trends in general are improving, it appears that the pace of global recovery will not be uniform. That being said, we are well-positioned to deliver improved financial performance in the future.”

Net revenues in the Americas decreased 8% during the first quarter of fiscal 2010 to $187.0 million from $203.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. As measured in U.S. dollars and reported in the financial statements, European net revenues decreased 2% during the first quarter of fiscal 2010 to $177.9 million from $181.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. In constant currency, European segment net revenues decreased 12% compared to the prior year.

As measured in U.S. dollars and reported in the financial statements, Asia/Pacific net revenues increased 16% to $67.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 from $57.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. In constant currency, Asia/Pacific segment net revenues decreased 15% compared to the prior year. Please refer to the accompanying tables in order to better understand the impact of foreign currency on revenue trends in our Europe and Asia/Pacific segments.

Consolidated inventories decreased 21% to $301.2 million at January 31, 2010 from $380.5 million at January 31, 2009. Consolidated trade accounts receivable decreased 13% to $323.0 million at January 31, 2010 from $373.4 million at January 31, 2009.
