Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

VF Corp. said today that revenue in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 declined 2 percent and forecasted a slight revenue decline for 2009.

The company, which owns a multitude of brands, including Vans and Reef, said it is reducing costs, which will save $100 million beginning in 2009.

For the full year of 2008, revenues are expected to rise 6 percent.

Fourth quarter earnings: The cost savings measures will lead to a $42 million charge in the fourth quarter. Including the charge, fourth quarter earnings will be $1.00 to $1.05 per share. Excluding the charge, earnings will fall 7 to 11 percent to $1.30 to $1.35 per share.

2008 earnings: Including the charge from cost reductions, earnings per share will be flat. Excluding the charge, earnings per share will rise 5 to 6%.

2009 earnings: Will be hurt in 2009 by increased pension expenses and the impact of the strengthening dollar of foreign currency exchanges. Excluding those impacts, earnings per share should exceed 10 to 11% growth.

In 2009, VF expects to generate more than $650 million in cash.
