Being an Executive Edition member allows me to not miss a beat when it comes to the Industry business news. Definitely keeps me in the loop plus goes great with my morning joe.

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.

Volcom’s first quarter revenue came in higher than the company had forecast and earnings per share hit the top end of the estimate it had provided at the end of February.

 

However, net income was well below the same period last year.

 

The company reported this afternoon that total revenue for the quarter ended March 31 increased 13% to $87.1 million. Volcom had forecast a 7% to 11% increase in revenue.

 

Net income declined 39% to $4.6 million, and earnings per share totaled 19 cents. The company had forecast earnings per share in the 16 cents to 19 cents range.

 

Gross margin: 50% vs. 54.2% the same period last year

 

SG&A: up 18% to $36.6 million

 

Cash, equivalents and short-term investments: $91.4 million

 

Because of the news announced yesterday that PPR is bidding to buy Volcom, Volcom did not host a conference call to discuss results.

Revenue: up 4.4% to $50.3 million

 

Gross profit: $23.7 million, down 2%
