Guess? Inc reported financial results for the third quarter of its 2011 fiscal year, which ended October 30, 2010.

Third quarter fiscal 2011 results

For the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company reported record net earnings of $69.1 million, a 7.8% increase compared to net earnings of $64.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Diluted earnings per share increased 8.7%, reaching $0.75, compared to $0.69 for the prior-year quarter.

Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with our third quarter performance, which exceeded our expectations for top line growth, operating margin and earnings. We grew all of our businesses and made significant progress on several key initiatives. We expanded our retail presence, opening 84 new stores around the world. Our international expansion continues to drive our growth, with Europe and Asia combining to contribute two-thirds of this quarter's revenue increase. And, we continued to build management strength, filling several key positions during the quarter."

Mr. Marciano continued, "As a Company, we remain focused on delivering value to our shareholders. Our strong capital structure and significant cash position give us the flexibility to significantly enhance our dividend program while continuing to invest in our future. Our commitment and belief in the Guess brand and its long term potential has never been stronger. While our brand already enjoys tremendous recognition around the world, we know that there are many regions where our current business has much more potential. Our success in new international markets validates this conviction.

“Our strategy is to continue to invest in our brand and business, developing new markets while building the necessary infrastructure and partnerships to support our growth. Above all, we will protect our most important asset - the Guess brand - by constantly adapting ourselves to the new world, but always maintaining integrity and staying true to who we are."
