Quiksilver Inc announced operating results for the third quarter ended July 31, 2008. Consolidated net revenues from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 increased 7% to $564.9 million, from $528.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2007.

Consolidated income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 was $33.1 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to $35.7 million, or $0.28 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2007. Results for the quarter included a $0.03 per share benefit from certain tax adjustments.

Net revenues and income from continuing operations for all periods exclude the results of our Rossignol wintersports equipment and apparel operations which are reported as discontinued operations. Including discontinued operations, net income for the quarter was $2.9 million or $0.02 per share compared to a net loss of $7.9 million or ($0.06) per share in the same quarter a year ago. The Company recently announced that it had received a binding offer to purchase Rossignol and expects to close this transaction in the Fall of 2008.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “Our performance overall was in-line with our expectations and we are relatively pleased to deliver results in this range given the negative trends we've all witnessed during the quarter in the retail environment.

Our gross margins benefited from a higher proportion of our revenues coming from Europe and from our retail stores than in the same quarter a year ago and we again achieved some improvements in sourcing margins. At the same time, this business mix drove our expense ratio higher, and a weaker performance at retail, together with conservative ordering by our wholesale customers, led to some deleveraging of expenses.”

All segments have been adjusted to reflect the discontinued operations classification of our Rossignol wintersports equipment and apparel business. The Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific segments each include operations of our Quiksilver, Roxy, DC and other apparel brand businesses.

Net revenues in the Americas segment decreased 4% during the third quarter of fiscal 2008 to $271.9 million from $281.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2007. European segment net revenues increased 25% during the third quarter of fiscal 2008 to $232.0 million from $185.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2007.

Approximately $28.6 million of Europe's increase was attributable to the positive effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Asia/Pacific segment net revenues decreased slightly to $59.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2008 from $59.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2007. Asia/Pacific's decrease would have been greater but for the positive effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates of approximately $7.9 million.

Consolidated inventories increased 14% to $358.6 million at July 31, 2008 from $315.1 million at July 31, 2007. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates accounted for approximately $22.5 million of the increase in inventories compared to July 31, 2007.
