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.

Volcom Q1 net income falls

By Tiffany Montgomery

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.

 

U.S. segment 

Revenue: up 4.4% to $50.3 million

 

Gross profit: $23.7 million, down 2%

 

Europe segment

Revenue: up 5.1% to $24.8 million

 

Gross profit: down 4.8% to $13.6 million

 

Electric segment 

Revenue: up 23.2% to $6.9 million

 

Gross profit: up 15% to $4 million

 

Australia segment (which Volcom recently brought in house)
