The Timberland Company reported a second-quarter 2010 net loss of $23.5 million and a diluted loss per share of ($0.44). This includes a $13.2 million non-cash, pre-tax charge for the impairment of certain goodwill and intangible assets. These results compare to a second-quarter 2009 net loss of $19.2 million and diluted earnings per share of ($0.34).

Jeffrey B. Swartz, Timberland's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to report revenue growth and gross margin improvement in all three regions. These results were achieved by focusing on our core outdoor equities and executing against a consistent strategy to strengthen our brand globally. We are optimistic about the progress that we are making, despite ongoing cost pressures and macroeconomic uncertainty in key markets. While non-cash charges impacted our profitability for the quarter, our core business saw marked improvement, a clear indication that our product and brand initiatives are continuing to gain traction and that Timberland is positioned for long-term success."

Second-Quarter 2010 Results Summary:

• Revenue increased 5.1% to $189.0 million compared to the prior year period, reflecting growth across North America, Asia, and Europe.
• North America revenue increased 6.6% to $92.0 million compared to the prior year period, driven by growth in apparel and accessories. Europe revenue increased 1.4% to $66.8 million versus 2009 second-quarter levels, and increased 5.7% on a constant dollar basis. Double-digit growth in Italy, Germany, and Scandinavia was partially offset by declines in the UK and France as well as the impact from the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar. Asia revenue increased 9.6% to $30.2 million compared to the prior year period, and increased 4.8% on a constant dollar basis. Favorable foreign exchange rates, along with the continuation of significant growth in Taiwan and China compared to the prior year period, were partially offset by declines in the Asia distributor business.
• Global footwear revenue increased 3.7% to $131.6 million from the second quarter of 2009, driven primarily by increased sales of our Timberland PRO footwear in North America and a strong performance by the Europe wholesale business, partially offset by weakness in Europe retail stores. Apparel and accessories revenue increased 10.2% to $52.1 million compared to the prior year period, due to increased sales of SmartWool accessories in North America and Timberland brand apparel in Asia retail stores, partially offset by softness in Europe. Royalty and other revenue decreased 3.8% to $5.3 million compared to the prior year period primarily due to a decline in licensed kids' apparel in North America.
• Global wholesale revenue was up 8.3% to $117.5 million compared to the prior year period, due to double-digit growth in North America and Europe, partially offset by declines in Asia. Worldwide consumer direct revenue was flat comparedto the prior year period, as improved comparable store sales in Asia and the net addition of 8 new Asia retail stores since the second quarter of 2009 were offset by declines in Europe and North America. Overall, comparable store sales were flat versus the second quarter of 2009. The Company had 224 stores, shops, and outlets worldwide at the end of the second quarter of 2010 compared to 220 at the end of the second quarter of 2009.
