Readers Say
It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

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.

No Fear to reorganize under Chapter 11 protection

Press Release:

 

Carlsbad, California, February 24, 2011 – No Fear Retail Stores, Inc. (“No Fear”), an apparel chain with stores in California, Arizona, Nevada and other states, today announced that it filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California.

 

No Fear initiated bankruptcy reorganization proceedings, together with its affiliated companies No Fear MX, Inc. and Simo Holdings, Inc. (together, the “Company”), in order to restructure the Company’s debt and re-align its business operations. The Company intends to work with its creditors and other stakeholders to execute its reorganization through Chapter 11. No Fear stores will remain open and business will continue as the Company moves through the reorganization process.

 

“Due to the state of the economy and the difficult operating environment within our industry, the Company needs to re-organize its finances and operations,” commented Mark Simo, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “We already have effected significant cost reductions and other changes to improve our business, including the closing of a number of under-performing stores.

 

"However, after careful consideration of available alternatives and after consultation with our legal and financial advisors, we determined that a Chapter 11 filing was necessary and in the best interests of the Company and its various constituencies, in order to make all of the changes that are needed. The filing allows us to continue operations as we seek to restructure our debt and other obligations in a controlled, court-supervised environment. We are committed to serving our customers and continuing with regular operations through this reorganization.”
