The Timberland Company reported first-quarter 2008 net income of $18.0 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.30. First quarter diluted EPS was $0.31 when adjusted to exclude restructuring and related costs. These results compare to first-quarter 2007 net income of $9.3 million and diluted EPS of $0.15, or $0.22 when adjusted to exclude restructuring and related costs.

First-Quarter Results Summary:
• Revenue grew 1.2% to $340.4 million as foreign exchange rate changes, strong gains in SmartWool products and Timberland PRO series footwear and moderate growth in Timberland casual footwear offset declines in boots and kids' footwear and decreases in Timberland apparel revenue in North America. Foreign exchange rate changes increased first-quarter 2008 revenue by approximately $16 million, or 4.8%, due to the strength of the Euro and the British Pound, and increased operating income by approximately $6 million.

• North America revenue declined 4.7% to $137.7 million, or 5.1% on a constant dollar basis, reflecting soft consumer spending in both the U.S. and Canada. Europe revenue increased 6.9% to $164.8 million driven by gains in foreign currency, but decreased 1.6% on a constant dollar basis.

• Asia revenue increased 0.7% to $37.9 million driven by gains in foreign currency, but decreased 6.3% on a constant dollar basis. Geographic results reflect the introduction of new reporting segments, a change that the Company believes will better reflect the way it now manages its business.
