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.

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.

Price VF paid for Vans Mexico partner, more

I caught up on some reading this morning of recent quarterly reports filed by industry public companies with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

I found a few interesting details that caught my eye for Vans, Electric, PacSun and Zumiez.

Vans

VF Corp. paid $31 million to buy out Vans’ 50% wholesale joint venture partner in Mexico, including 14 stores owned by the former partner there. The transaction closed in March.

Volcom

The sellers of Electric Visual are eligible to receive $12 million in cash if certain financial milestones are achieved through Dec. 31, 2010.

Volcom acquired Electric in 2008.

PacSun

Junior’s comps fell 27% at PacSun in the quarter ended May 1.

Young men’s comps declined less than 1%.

Zumiez

Zumiez is self-insured and believes the new healthcare law will likely lead to higher costs for the company.

The provisions that require children to be covered to age 26 and prohibits limits on benefits will likely have an impact on the company’s healthcare costs, and Zumiez is studying the issue, as are many industry companies, I'm sure.
