GOLD COAST, 23 September 2011: Billabong International Limited today moved to 100% control of the Sydney-based retailer Surfection, a business previously operated under a joint venture between the Billabong Group and interests associated with retailer Chris Athas.

 

The acquisition was funded through the issue of 1,064,516 new ordinary shares in Billabong International Limited at an issue price of $3.72 per share. The issued shares are subject to voluntary escrow for a period of three years from today.

 

The original joint venture with Surfection was announced by Billabong in August 2010.
