Quiksilver, Inc. announced operating results for the second fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2010. Consolidated net revenues from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 decreased 5% to $468.3 million from $494.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Pro-forma consolidated income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $15.7 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to $6.6 million, or $0.05 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Pro-forma income for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 excludes $2.9 million in restructuring charges, consisting primarily of severance pay, as well as a non-cash charge of $5.2 million for incremental stock compensation expense related to the appreciation in value of shares of company stock granted to Kelly Slater during the quarter following stockholder approval.

These charges were partially offset by a gain of $1.3 million on the sale of the Raisins swimwear trademarks. Including these amounts, income from continuing operations was $8.8 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $4.9 million, or $0.04 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. A reconciliation of GAAP results to pro-forma results is included in the accompanying tables. Net revenues and the income 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 very pleased to again deliver financial results that exceeded our prior expectations. Even as the global economies exhibit inconsistent signs of recovery, it's clear that the bold steps we've taken over the past several quarters to improve our operations and to stabilize our financial structure have made us a much stronger company. With inventories well-managed and great products in the market, we are well positioned to deliver improved financial performance in the future.”
