May 21, 2009 1:25 PM

PacSun today reported an $8.7 million net loss, or 13 cents per diluted share, for its Q1 09, compared to a $12 million net loss for Q1 08.

PacSun forecasts Q2 09 same store results of -17 percent to -20 percent, which would yield a similar loss as in Q1.

The company said Q1 same store sales dropped by -18 percent in Q1 09 compared to Q1 08, on volume of $223.5 million, compared to $266.9 million in 2008.

Company executives said in a statement that they were pleased with the results during a tough recession.

CEO Sally Frame Kasaks pointed out that PacSun ends the quarter with $32 million in cash and equivalents on its balance sheet, and no long-term debt.

The Anaheim, California-based mall teen retailer of action sports brands and private label goods said it ended the quarter with 927 stores in all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico, down from 942 at the end of Q1 08.

Check back later this afternoon for more details from PacSun's conference call.
