Quiksilver Inc announced operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended October 31, 2008. Consolidated net revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 increased 3% to $606.9 million compared to $587.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. Fourth quarter pro-forma income from continuing operations was $41.6 million or $0.32 per share, and excludes a $55.4 million goodwill impairment charge associated with the company's revised outlook for its business in the Asia/Pacific region.

The pro-forma earnings result exceeded the company's expectations because of an unanticipated tax benefit of $4.6 million or $0.04 per share. The goodwill impairment charge is a non-cash expense and does not affect the company's operations, cash flows or covenants associated with its debt. A reconciliation of GAAP results to pro-forma results is provided in the accompanying tables.

Including the goodwill charge, the loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $13.8 million or $0.11 per share, compared to income of $43.9 million or $0.34 per share in the same quarter a year ago. Net revenues and income from continuing operations for all periods exclude the results of the Rossignol wintersports and golf equipment businesses which are reported as discontinued operations.

Consolidated net revenues for the full year of fiscal 2008 increased 11% to $2.26 billion compared to $2.05 billion in fiscal 2007. Full year pro-forma income from continuing operations for fiscal 2008, adjusted to exclude the goodwill charge, was $120.9 million or $0.93 per share. Full year income from continuing operations for fiscal 2008, including the goodwill charge, was $65.5 million or $0.51 per share, compared to income of $116.7 million or $0.90 per share in fiscal 2007.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “I am proud of the efforts of the entire Quiksilver team around the world as we fought through a deteriorating global economy to deliver financial results that were consistent with the outlook we provided 6 months ago. As economic conditions continue to worsen in our key markets in the US and in Europe, we've continued our efforts to reduce expenses and capital expenditures, to carefully control inventory and to reconfigure our post-Rossignol capital structure.”

Net revenues in the Americas increased 10% during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 to $306.9 million. European net revenues decreased 4% during the fourth quarter to $216.3 million and declined 6% in local currency. Asia/Pacific net revenues increased 2% to $82.6 million in the fourth quarter and increased 10% in local currency.

Net revenues in the Americas for the full year of fiscal 2008 increased 7% to $1,061.4 million. European net revenues increased 16% during the full year of fiscal 2008 to $933.1 million and were up 4% in local currency. Asia/Pacific netrevenues increased 9% to $265.1 million in fiscal 2008 and were up 3% in local currency.
