QUIKSILVER, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.   Basis of Presentation
    The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statement presentation.
    Quiksilver, Inc. (the “Company”), in its opinion, has included all adjustments, consisting only of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009. The condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes for the year ended October 31, 2009 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year due to seasonal and other factors.
    In November 2008, the Company sold its Rossignol business, including the related brands of Rossignol, Dynastar, Look and Lange, and in December 2007, the Company sold its golf equipment business. As a result, the Company has classified its Rossignol wintersports and golf equipment businesses as discontinued operations for all periods presented.
    The Company is highly leveraged; however, management believes that its cash flows from operations, together with its existing credit facilities and term loans will be adequate to fund the Company’s capital requirements for at least the next twelve months. The Company also believes that its short-term uncommitted lines of credit in Asia/Pacific will continue to be made available. If these lines of credit are not made available, the Company could be adversely affected.
2.   New Accounting Pronouncements
    In June 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Subtopic 105 “Generally Accepted Accounting Principles,” which establishes the Accounting Standards Codification as the single source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP. Rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission under authority of federal securities laws are also sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The subsequent issuances of new standards will be in the form of Accounting Standards Updates that will be included in the codification. This guidance is effective for financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. The Company updated its historical U.S. GAAP references to comply with the codification effective at the beginning of its fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2009. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows, since the codification is not intended to change U.S. GAAP.
3.   Earnings per Share and Stock-Based Compensation
    The Company reports basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”). Basic EPS is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period, while diluted EPS additionally includes the dilutive effect of the Company’s outstanding stock options, warrants and shares of restricted stock computed using the treasury stock method.

(1)   For the nine months ended July 31, 2009, the shares used in computing diluted net income per share do not include 722,000 dilutive stock options and shares of restricted stock as the effect is anti-dilutive. For the three months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009, additional option shares outstanding of 10,501,000 and 14,388,000, respectively, and additional warrant shares outstanding of 10,540,000 and 25,654,000, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive. For the nine months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009, additional option shares outstanding of 11,862,000 and 14,429,000, respectively, and additional warrant shares outstanding of 13,648,000 and 25,654,000, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.
    On April 19, 2010, the Company commenced a tender offer for employees and consultants of the Company, other than the Company’s executive officers and members of its board of directors, to exchange some or all of their outstanding eligible stock options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock for new stock options with a lower exercise price. Eligible stock options were those with an exercise price greater than $7.71 per share and granted prior to October 19, 2008. The terms of the offer were such that an eligible optionee would receive one new stock option for every one and one-half surrendered stock options with an exercise price of $7.72 to $10.64 per share and one new stock option for every two surrendered stock options with an exercise price of $10.65 per share and above. These exchange ratios were designed so that the stock compensation expense associated with the new options to be granted, calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, was equal to the unrecognized compensation expense on the options to be surrendered. Pursuant to the tender offer, 3,754,352 eligible stock options were surrendered. On May 18, 2010, the Company granted an aggregate of 2,058,007 new stock options in exchange for the eligible stock options surrendered, at an exercise price of $5.08 per share, which was the closing price of the Company’s common stock on that date. The remaining 1,696,345 canceled shares are not eligible for re-grant.
    The Company accounts for stock-based compensation under the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718 “Stock Compensation.” The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value compensation expense. Forfeitures are estimated at the date of grant based on historical rates and reduce the compensation expense recognized. The expected term of options granted is derived from historical data on employee exercises. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the date of grant. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. For the nine months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009, excluding the new options granted pursuant to the tender offer described above, options were valued assuming a risk-free interest rate of 2.7% and 2.5%, respectively, volatility of 73.9% and 54.8%, respectively, zero dividend yield, and an expected life of 6.4 and 5.9 years, respectively. The weighted average fair value of all options granted was $1.03 and $0.93 for the

Stock issued under these plans generally vests from three to five years. In March 2010, the Company’s shareholders approved a grant of 3 million shares of restricted stock to a Company sponsored athlete, Kelly Slater. In accordance with the terms of the related restricted stock agreement, 1,200,000 shares vested during the nine months ended July 31, 2010, with the remaining 1,800,000 shares to vest in three equal, annual installments beginning in April 2011.

    Compensation expense for restricted stock is determined based on the fair value at the date of grant, adjusted for forfeitures. Forfeitures are estimated at the date of grant based on historical rates and reduce the compensation expense recognized. As of July 31, 2010, there had been no acceleration of the amortization period. As of July 31, 2010, the Company had approximately $4.8 million of unrecognized compensation expense expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 1.4 years.

8.   Derivative Financial Instruments
    The Company is exposed to gains and losses resulting from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates relating to certain sales, royalty income and product purchases of its international subsidiaries that are denominated in currencies other than their functional currencies. The Company is also exposed to foreign currency gains and losses resulting from domestic transactions that are not denominated in U.S. dollars, and to fluctuations in interest rates related to its variable rate debt. Furthermore, the Company is exposed to gains and losses resulting from the effect that fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates have on the reported results in the Company’s consolidated financial statements due to the translation of the operating results and financial position of the Company’s international subsidiaries. As part of its overall strategy to manage the level of exposure to the risk of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, the Company uses various foreign currency exchange contracts and intercompany loans. In addition, interest rate caps are used to manage the Company’s exposure to the risk of fluctuations in interest rates.
    The Company accounts for all of its cash flow hedges under ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging,” which requires companies to recognize all derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the consolidated balance sheet. In accordance with ASC 815, the Company designates forward contracts as cash flow hedges of forecasted purchases of commodities.
    Effective February 1, 2009, the Company adopted additional guidance, which provides an enhanced disclosure framework for derivative instruments. ASC 815 requires that the fair values of derivative instruments and their gains and losses be disclosed in a manner that provides adequate information about the impact these instruments can have on a company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
    For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of other comprehensive income (“OCI”) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. Gains and losses on the derivative representing either hedge ineffectiveness or hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness are recognized in current earnings. As of July 31, 2010, the Company was hedging forecasted transactions expected to occur through October 2011. Assuming July 31, 2010 exchange rates remain constant, $8.2 million of gains, net of tax, related to hedges of these transactions are expected to be reclassified into earnings over the next 15 months.
    For the nine months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009, the effective portions of gains and losses on derivative instruments in the condensed consolidated statements of operations were as follows:
                         
    Nine Months Ended July 31,  
    2010     2009        
In thousands   Amount     Location  
Gain (loss) recognized in OCI on derivatives

Gain reclassified from accumulated OCI into income
  $ 343     $ 29     Foreign currency gain
Gain (loss) recognized in income on derivatives
  $ 816     $ (196 )   Foreign currency gain
    On the date the Company enters into a derivative contract, management designates the derivative as a hedge of the identified exposure. The Company formally documents all

(Unaudited)
    relationships between hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as the risk-management objective and strategy for entering into various hedge transactions. In this documentation, the Company identifies the asset, liability, firm commitment, or forecasted transaction that has been designated as a hedged item and indicates how the hedging instrument is expected to hedge the risks related to the hedged item. The Company formally measures effectiveness of its hedging relationships both at the hedge inception and on an ongoing basis in accordance with its risk management policy. The Company would discontinue hedge accounting prospectively (i) if management determines that the derivative is no longer effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows of a hedged item, (ii) when the derivative expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, (iii) if it becomes probable that the forecasted transaction being hedged by the derivative will not occur, (iv) because a hedged firm commitment no longer meets the definition of a firm commitment, or (v) if management determines that designation of the derivative as a hedge instrument is no longer appropriate.
    The Company enters into forward exchange and other derivative contracts with major banks and is exposed to losses in the event of nonperformance by these banks. The Company anticipates, however, that these banks will be able to fully satisfy their obligations under the contracts. Accordingly, the Company does not obtain collateral or other security to support the contracts. As of July 31, 2010, the Company had the following outstanding derivative contracts that were entered into to hedge forecasted purchases and to hedge interest rate fluctuations:

    ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 requires that valuation techniques maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the valuation inputs into three broad levels. Based on the underlying inputs, each fair value measurement in its entirety is reported in one of the three levels. These levels are:
    Level 1 — Valuation is based upon quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets. Level 1 assets and liabilities include debt and equity securities traded in an active exchange market, as well as U.S. Treasury securities.
 
    Level 2 — Valuation is based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
 
    Level 3 — Valuation is determined using model-based techniques with significant assumptions not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect the Company’s own estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include the use of third party pricing services, option pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques.

9.   Litigation, Indemnities and Guarantees
    The Company is involved from time to time in legal claims involving trademarks and intellectual property, licensing, employee relations and other matters incidental to its business. The Company believes the resolution of any such matter currently pending will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.
    During its normal course of business, the Company has made certain indemnities, commitments and guarantees under which it may be required to make payments in relation to certain transactions. These include (i) intellectual property indemnities to the Company’s customers and licensees in connection with the use, sale and/or license of Company products, (ii) indemnities to various lessors in connection with facility leases for certain claims arising from such facility or lease, (iii) indemnities to vendors and service providers pertaining to claims based on the negligence or willful misconduct of the Company, and (iv) indemnities involving the accuracy of representations and warranties in certain contracts. The duration of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees varies and, in certain cases, may be indefinite. The majority of these indemnities, commitments and guarantees do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential for future payments the Company could be obligated to make. As of July 31, 2010, the Company had not recorded any liability for these indemnities, commitments and guarantees in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
10. Discontinued Operations
    The Company completed the sale of its Rossignol business in November 2008 for a purchase price of approximately $50.8 million, comprised of $38.1 million in cash and $12.7 million which was issued to the Company as a promissory note. The business sold includes the related brands of Rossignol, Dynastar, Look and Lange. The Company used the cash proceeds from the sale to pay for related transaction costs and to reduce its indebtedness. The promissory note was canceled in October 2009 in connection with the completion of the final working capital adjustment.

    The operating results of discontinued operations, which include both the Rossignol wintersports equipment and apparel businesses, included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations were as follows:
                 
    Nine Months Ended July 31,  
In thousands   2010     2009  
Revenues, net

    The loss from discontinued operations for the nine months ended July 31, 2009 includes the loss on sale of Rossignol of approximately $124.4 million, net of expected tax benefits.
    The remaining assets and liabilities of the Company’s discontinued businesses primarily relate to its discontinued Rossignol apparel business. These assets and liabilities are classified as held for sale on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
11. Income Taxes
    On November 6, 2009, the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 (the “Act”) was enacted into legislation. The Act allows corporate taxpayers with net operating losses (“NOLs”) for fiscal years ending after 2007 and beginning before 2010 to elect to carry back such NOLs up to five years. This election may be made for only one fiscal year. The Company plans to implement the elective carryback provision with respect to its fiscal year ending October 31, 2010 and has recorded a benefit in its statement of operations for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2010 of $0.3 million and $3.9 million, respectively.
    On July 31, 2010, the Company’s liability for uncertain tax positions was approximately $144.2 million resulting from unrecognized tax benefits, excluding interest and penalties. During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, the Company increased its liability for uncertain tax positions, exclusive of interest and penalties, by $102.1 million. The Company increased its liability by $102.4 million for positions taken in the current period and by $8.6 million for positions taken in prior periods. The Company also reduced its liability by $8.9 million primarily due to a lapse in a statute of limitations. The nature of the net increase relates primarily to intercompany restructuring transactions between foreign affiliates.
    During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, the Company recorded a liability of $101.5 million that, if resolved unfavorably, would result in the reduction of tax attributes rather than a cash obligation. On its accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet, the Company has presented the liability and the corresponding tax attributes on a net basis.
    If the Company’s positions are favorably sustained by the relevant taxing authority, approximately $131.8 million (excluding interest and penalties) of uncertain tax position liabilities would favorably impact the Company’s effective tax rate in future periods.
    The Company includes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in its provision for income taxes in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, the Company recorded an expense of approximately $2.5 million relating to interest and penalties, and as of July 31, 2010, the Company had a liability for interest and penalties of $15.2 million. The Company made a tax payment during the three months ended July 31, 2010 of $1.4 million related to an ongoing audit in Australia. This payment was treated as a reduction of the Company’s liability for interest and penalties.

    During the next 12 months, it is reasonably possible that the Company’s liability for uncertain tax positions may change by a significant amount as a result of the resolution or payment of uncertain tax positions related to intercompany transactions between foreign affiliates and certain foreign withholding tax exposures. Conclusion of these matters could result in settlement for different amounts than the Company has accrued as uncertain tax benefits. If a position for which the Company concluded was more likely than not is subsequently not upheld, then the Company would need to accrue and ultimately pay an additional amount. Conversely, the Company could settle positions with the tax authorities for amounts lower than have been accrued or extinguish a position through payment. The Company believes the outcomes which are reasonably possible within the next 12 months range from an increase of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits of up to $3.0 million to a reduction of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits of up to $120.0 million, excluding penalties and interest.
 
    The Company has completed a federal tax audit in the United States for its fiscal years ended 2004 and 2005 and remains subject to examination for years thereafter. The Company’s significant foreign tax jurisdictions, including France, Australia and Canada, are subject to normal and regular examination for various tax years generally beginning in fiscal year 2000. The Company is currently under examination in Australia, France and Canada for fiscal years ended through 2008.
12.   Restructuring Charges
 
    In connection with its cost reduction efforts, the Company formulated the Fiscal 2009 Cost Reduction Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan covers the global operations of the Company, but is primarily concentrated in the United States. During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, the Company recorded $6.6 million in severance charges in selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”), which includes $3.4 million in the Americas segment, $1.2 million in the European segment and $2.0 million in corporate operations. In addition to the severance charges, the Company completed the transition of its Canada headquarters and DC Shoes headquarters from their previous locations into its existing Americas headquarters in Huntington Beach, California during the nine months ended July 31, 2010. As a result, the Company recorded approximately $1.1 million in SG&A related to these lease exits and related expenses. While not included in the following table, the Company also recorded non-cash asset impairment charges of approximately $1.4 million related to the closure of these locations. The Company continues to evaluate its facilities in the United States, as well as its overall cost structure, and may incur future charges under the Plan.
 
    Activity and liability balances recorded as part of the Plan are as follows:

  $ 843,079     $ 1,039,253  
 
           
    As of July 31, 2010, the Company’s credit facilities allowed for total maximum cash borrowings and letters of credit of $302 million. The Company’s total maximum borrowings and actual availability fluctuate depending on the extent of assets comprising the Company’s borrowing base under certain credit facilities. The Company had $30.9 million of borrowings drawn on these credit facilities as of July 31, 2010, and letters of credit issued at that time totaled $62.5 million. The amount of availability for borrowings under these facilities as of July 31, 2010 was $166.8 million, of which $160.6 million was committed. Of this $160.6 million in committed capacity, $112.3 million can also be used for letters of credit. In addition to the $166.8 million of availability for borrowings, the Company also had $41.8 million in additional capacity for letters of credit in Europe and Asia/Pacific as of July 31, 2010. Many of the Company’s debt agreements contain customary default provisions and restrictive covenants. The Company is currently in compliance with such covenants.
 
    The estimated fair value of the Company’s lines of credit and long-term debt are as follows:
                 
    July 31, 2010  
    Carrying     Fair  
In thousands   Amount     Value  
Lines of credit

  $ 843,079     $ 839,903  
 
           
    The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt is calculated based on the market price of the Company’s publicly traded senior notes and the carrying values of the majority of the Company’s other debt obligations.
 
    The carrying value of the Company’s trade accounts receivable and accounts payable approximates fair value due to their short-term nature.

14.   Subsequent Events
    During the three months ended July 31, 2010, the Company entered into a debt-for-equity exchange agreement with Rhône Group LLC (“Rhône”), acting in its capacity as the administrative agent for the Rhône senior secured term loans. Pursuant to such agreement, a combined total of $140 million of principal balance outstanding under the Rhône senior secured term loans was exchanged for a total of 31.1 million shares of the Company’s common stock, which represents an exchange price of $4.50 per share. The Company and Rhône closed the exchange on August 9, 2010, resulting in further de-leveraging of the Company’s consolidated balance sheet.
 
    As a result of this exchange, the Company will recognize significant charges in order to write-off a pro-rata portion of the deferred debt issuance costs that were capitalized in connection with the issuance of the Rhône senior secured term loans, as well as for a pro-rata portion of the debt discount that was recorded upon the issuance of the warrants associated with such senior secured term loans. The Company expects that the total charge for these write-offs will be approximately $28.7 million. This charge will be recognized during the three months ending October 31, 2010 and will be non-recurring, non-cash and non-operating.
 
    The Company intends to refinance the remaining outstanding balance under the Rhône senior secured term loans (approximately $23.9 million) with a new term loan that has terms more favorable to the Company than the credit markets permitted a year ago. The Company expects to close this transaction during the three months ending October 31, 2010. If the Company successfully refinances the remaining balance of the Rhône senior secured term loans, it will have to recognize additional write-offs of approximately $4.5 million.
 
    On August 27, 2010, the Company entered into an amendment to its existing $200 million asset-based credit facility (“Credit Facility”) for its Americas segment. The amended Credit Facility is a $150 million facility (with the option to expand the facility to $250 million on certain conditions) and the amendment, among other things, extended the maturity date of the Credit Facility to August 27, 2014 (compared to July 31, 2012 under the original facility). The amended Credit Facility includes a $102.5 million sublimit for letters of credit and bears interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.5% to 3.0% (compared to LIBOR plus a margin of 4.0% to 4.5% under the original facility), depending upon availability.
 
15.   Condensed Consolidating Financial Information
 
    The Company has $400 million in publicly registered senior notes. Obligations under the Company’s senior notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain of its domestic subsidiaries. The Company is required to present condensed consolidating financial information for Quiksilver, Inc. and its domestic subsidiaries within the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with the criteria established for parent companies in the SEC’s Regulation S-X, Rule 3-10(f). The following condensed consolidating financial information presents the results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Quiksilver Inc., its guarantor subsidiaries, its non-guarantor subsidiaries and the eliminations necessary to arrive at the information for the Company on a consolidated basis as of July 31, 2010 and October 31, 2009 and for the three and nine month periods ended July 31, 2010 and 2009. The principal elimination entries eliminate investments in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions. The Company has applied the estimated consolidated annual effective income tax rate to both the guarantor and non-guarantor subsidiaries, adjusting for any discrete items, for interim reporting purposes. In the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2010, management will apply the actual income tax rates to both the guarantor and non-guarantor subsidiaries. These interim tax rates may differ from the actual annual effective income tax rates for both the guarantor and non-guarantor subsidiaries.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Unless the context indicates otherwise, when we refer to “Quiksilver”, “we”, “us”, “our”, or the “Company” in this Form 10-Q, we are referring to Quiksilver, Inc. and its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis. You should read the following discussion and analysis in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report. The information contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q is not a complete description of our business or the risks associated with an investment in our securities. We urge you to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2009 and subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K, which discuss our business in greater detail. The section entitled “Risk Factors” set forth in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, and similar disclosures in our other SEC filings, discuss some of the important risk factors that may affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. You should carefully consider those risks, in addition to the information in this report and in our other filings with the SEC, before deciding to purchase, hold or sell our securities.
Over the past 40 years, Quiksilver has been established as a global company representing the casual, youth lifestyle associated with boardriding sports. We began operations in 1976 as a California company making boardshorts for surfers in the United States under a license agreement with the Quiksilver brand founders in Australia. Our product offering expanded in the 1980s as we grew our distribution channels. After going public in 1986 and purchasing the rights to the Quiksilver brand in the United States from our Australian licensor, we further expanded our product offerings and began to diversify. In 1991, we acquired the European licensee of Quiksilver and introduced Roxy, our surf brand for teenage girls. We also expanded demographically in the 1990s by adding products for boys, girls, toddlers and men, and we introduced our proprietary retail store concept which displays the heritage and products of Quiksilver and Roxy. In 2000, we acquired the international Quiksilver and Roxy trademarks, and in 2002, we acquired our licensees in Australia and Japan. In 2004, we acquired DC Shoes, Inc. to expand our presence in action sports-inspired footwear. In 2005, we acquired Skis Rossignol SA, a wintersports and golf equipment company. Our golf equipment operations were subsequently sold in December 2007 and our Rossignol wintersports business was sold in November 2008. Our Rossignol wintersports business, including both equipment and related apparel, is classified as discontinued operations and the assets and related liabilities of our remaining Rossignol apparel business are classified as held for sale in our condensed consolidated financial statements. As a result of this disposition, the following information has been adjusted to exclude our Rossignol businesses.
We operate in the outdoor market of the sporting goods industry in which we design, produce and distribute branded apparel, footwear, accessories and related products. Our products are sold throughout the world, primarily in surf shops, skate shops, snow shops and specialty stores. We currently operate in three segments: the Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific. Our former wintersports equipment segment has been classified as discontinued operations. The Americas segment includes revenues from the U.S., Canada and Latin America. Our European segment includes revenues from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our Asia/Pacific segment includes revenues primarily from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Indonesia. Royalties earned from various licensees in other international territories are categorized in corporate operations along with revenues from sourcing services for our licensees.
We operate in markets that are highly competitive, and our ability to evaluate and respond to changing consumer demands and tastes is critical to our success. If we are unable to remain competitive and maintain our consumer loyalty, our business will be negatively affected. We believe that our historical success is due to the development of an experienced team of designers, artists, sponsored athletes, technicians, researchers, merchandisers, pattern makers and contractors. Our team and the heritage and current strength of our brands has helped us remain competitive in our markets. Our success in the future will depend, in part, on our ability to continue to design products that are desirable in the marketplace and competitive in the areas of quality, brand image, technical specifications, distribution methods, price, customer service and intellectual property protection.

(1)   Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Quiksilver, Inc. before (i) interest expense, (ii) income tax expense, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) non-cash stock-based compensation expense and (v) asset impairments. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), and it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We use Adjusted EBITDA, along with other GAAP measures, as a measure of profitability because Adjusted EBITDA helps us to compare our performance on a consistent basis by removing from our operating results the impact of our capital structure, the effect of operating in different tax jurisdictions, the impact of our asset base, which can differ depending on the book value of assets, the accounting methods used to compute depreciation and amortization, the existence or timing of asset impairments and the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. We believe EBITDA is useful to investors as it is a widely used measure of performance and the adjustments we make to EBITDA provide further clarity on our profitability. We remove the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation from our earnings which can vary based on share price, share price volatility and expected life of the equity instruments we grant. In addition, this stock-based compensation expense does not result in cash payments by us. We remove the effect of asset impairments from Adjusted EBITDA for the same reason that we remove depreciation and amortization as it is part of the impact of our asset base. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as a profitability measure in that it does not include the interest expense on our debts, our provisions for income taxes, the effect of our expenditures for capital assets and certain intangible assets, the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and the effect of asset impairments. The following is a reconciliation of income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Quiksilver, Inc. to Adjusted EBITDA:

Three Months Ended July 31, 2010 Compared to Three Months Ended July 31, 2009
Our total net revenues for the three months ended July 31, 2010 decreased 12% to $441.5 million from $501.4 million in the comparable period of the prior year. In constant currency, net revenues decreased 10% compared to the prior year. Our net revenues in each of the Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific segments include apparel, footwear, accessories and related product lines for our Quiksilver, Roxy, DC and other brands, which primarily include Hawk and Lib Technologies.
In order to better understand growth rates in our foreign operating segments, we make reference to constant currency. Constant currency improves visibility into actual growth rates as it adjusts for the effect of changing foreign currency exchange rates from period to period. Constant currency is calculated by taking the ending foreign currency exchange rate (for balance sheet items) or the average foreign currency exchange rate (for income statement items) used in translation for the current period and applying that same rate to the prior period. Our European segment is translated into constant currency using euros and our Asia/Pacific segment is translated into constant currency using Australian dollars as these are the primary functional currencies of each reporting segment. As such, this methodology does not account for movements in individual currencies within an operating segment (for example, non-euro currencies within our European segment). A constant currency translation methodology that accounts for movements in each individual currency could yield a different result compared to using only euros and Australian dollars. The following table presents revenues by segment in both historical currency and constant currency for the three months ended July 31, 2010 and 2009:

Revenues in the Americas decreased 9% to $234.6 million for the three months ended July 31, 2010 from $256.8 million in the comparable period of the prior year, while European revenues decreased 20% to $151.7 million from $189.0 million and Asia/Pacific revenues decreased 1% to $54.5 million from $55.1 million for those same periods. The decrease in Americas’ net revenues was primarily attributable to generally weak economic conditions affecting both our retail and wholesale channels, with particular softness in the junior’s market. The decrease in the Americas came primarily from Roxy brand revenues and, to a lesser extent, DC brand revenues. The decrease in Roxy brand revenues came primarily from our apparel product line, but was partially offset by growth in our accessories product line. The decrease in DC brand revenues came primarily from our apparel and footwear product lines and, to a lesser extent, our accessories product line. Quiksilver brand revenues remained essentially flat, with growth in our accessories and footwear product lines offset by a decline in our apparel product line. Europe’s net revenues decreased 11% in constant currency. The currency adjusted revenue decrease in Europe was primarily the result of a decline in our Roxy and Quiksilver brand revenues and, to a lesser extent, a decline in our DC brand revenues. The decrease in Roxy brand revenues was generally from our apparel product line and, to a lesser extent, our accessories and footwear product lines. Roxy brand revenues were particularly impacted by softness in the junior’s market. The decrease in Quiksilver brand revenues was primarily from our apparel product line and, to a lesser extent, our footwear product line. The decrease in DC brand revenues was primarily from our footwear and apparel product lines, which were partially offset by growth in our accessories product line. Asia/Pacific’s net revenues decreased 10% in constant currency. The currency adjusted decrease in Asia/Pacific came primarily from the Roxy brand and, to a lesser extent, from the DC and Quiksilver brands across all major product categories.

Our Asia/Pacific segment was the most impacted by weak economic conditions during the quarter as retail was challenging in both of our primary markets of Australia and Japan.
Our consolidated gross profit margin for the three months ended July 31, 2010 increased to 52.3% from 46.7% in the comparable period of the prior year. The gross profit in the Americas segment increased to 46.7% from 37.7%, our European segment gross profit margin increased to 60.6% from 57.5%, and our Asia/Pacific segment gross profit margin decreased to 52.7% from 53.7% for those same periods. The increase in the Americas segment gross profit margin was primarily the result of less discounting in our wholesale business and, to a lesser extent, in our company-owned retail stores, less clearance business and improved sourcing. Our European segment gross profit margin increased primarily as a result of improvements in our company-owned retail stores, improved sourcing and, to a lesser extent, improved margins on clearance business. In our Asia/Pacific segment, the gross profit margin decrease was primarily due to less full price retail sales compared to the prior year.
Our selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”) for the three months ended July 31, 2010 decreased 9% to $193.2 million from $211.8 million in the comparable period of the prior year. In the Americas segment, SG&A expenses decreased 13% to $80.0 million from $92.3 million in the comparable period of the prior year, while our European segment SG&A decreased 9% to $76.2 million from $83.7 million, and our Asia/Pacific segment SG&A increased 7% to $29.2 million from $27.3 million for those same periods. As a percentage of revenues, our consolidated SG&A increased to 43.8% for the three months ended July 31, 2010 from 42.2% for the three months ended July 31, 2009. In the Americas, SG&A as a percentage of revenues decreased to 34.1% compared to 35.9% in the comparable period of the prior year. In Europe, SG&A as a percentage of revenues increased to 50.2% from 44.3% and in Asia/Pacific, SG&A as a percentage of revenues increased to 53.5% from 49.5% for those same periods. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of revenues in our Americas segment was primarily due to lower overall expenses due to cost-cutting. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of revenues in our European segment was primarily caused by lower revenues and the costs of operating additional retail stores. Europe’s SG&A increased 1% in constant currency. In our Asia/Pacific segment, the increase in SG&A as a percentage of revenues was primarily the result of lower revenues. Asia/Pacific’s SG&A decreased 3% in constant currency.
Asset impairment charges for the three months ended July 31, 2010 were $3.2 million, compared to none in the three months ended July 31, 2009. These charges were $1.9 million in the Americas segment, $0.1 million in our European segment and $1.2 million in our Asia/Pacific segment. In the Americas segment, $1.4 million of the total was for fixed asset impairments as a result of the closure of our Canada and DC Shoes’ headquarter locations, while the remaining $0.5 million related to a retail store impairment. In the European segment, the charge related to a retail store impairment, while in our Asia/Pacific segment, the charge related to fixed asset impairments.
Interest expense for the three months ended July 31, 2010 increased to $20.6 million from $15.3 million in the comparable period of the prior year primarily as a result of higher interest rates associated with our debt structure, although $6.7 million of the $20.6 million was non-cash interest expense.
Our foreign currency loss amounted to $0.2 million for the three months ended July 31, 2010 compared to a loss of $3.5 million in the comparable period of the prior year. This loss resulted primarily from the foreign currency exchange effect of certain U.S. dollar denominated liabilities of our foreign subsidiaries.
Our effective income tax rate for the three months ended July 31, 2010 was 37.7% compared to 10.5% for the three months ended July 31, 2009. The income tax rate for the three months ended July 31, 2009 was positively impacted by favorable adjustments, primarily related to the finalization of certain tax deductions that were more favorable than originally anticipated.
Our income from continuing operations for the three months ended July 31, 2010 increased to $8.2 million or $0.05 per share on a diluted basis, compared to $3.4 million, or $0.03 per share on a diluted basis, in the comparable period of the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $51.6 million from $35.9 million for those same periods.

Revenues in the Americas decreased 10% to $621.3 million for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 from $690.2 million in the comparable period of the prior year, while European revenues decreased 7% to $538.3 million from $581.2 million and Asia/Pacific revenues increased 9% to $180.2 million from $165.0 million for those same periods. The decrease in Americas’ net revenues was primarily attributable to generally weak economic conditions affecting both our retail and wholesale channels, with particular softness in the junior’s market. The decrease in the Americas came primarily from Roxy brand revenues and, to a lesser extent, Quiksilver brand revenues. These decreases were partially offset by growth in DC brand revenues. The decrease in Roxy brand revenues came across all product lines. The decrease in Quiksilver brand revenues came primarily from the apparel product line and was partially offset by growth in the accessories and footwear product lines. The increase in DC brand revenues came primarily from our apparel and accessories product lines and, to a lesser extent, our footwear product lines. European net revenues decreased 9% in constant currency. The currency adjusted decrease in Europe came primarily from decreases in our Roxy and Quiksilver brand revenues, partially offset by modest growth in our DC brand revenues. The decreases in our Roxy and Quiksilver brand revenues came primarily from our apparel product line and, to a lesser extent, our accessories and footwear product lines. The increase in DC brand revenues came primarily from growth in our apparel and accessories product lines, but was partially offset by a decline in our footwear product lines. Asia/Pacific’s net revenues decreased 14% in constant currency. The currency adjusted decrease in Asia/Pacific revenues came across all brands and all major product lines. Our Asia/Pacific segment was particularly impacted by the generally weak economic conditions.
Our consolidated gross profit margin for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 increased to 52.3% from 46.9% in the comparable period of the prior year. The gross profit margin in the Americas segment increased to 45.6% from 37.3%, while our European segment gross profit margin increased to 59.7% from 56.6%, and our Asia/Pacific segment gross profit margin decreased to 53.9% from 54.0% for those same periods. The increase in the Americas segment gross profit margin was primarily the result of less discounting in our wholesale business and, to a lesser extent, in our company-owned retail stores, less clearance business and improved sourcing. Our European segment gross profit margin increased primarily as a result of improved sourcing, improved margins in our company-owned retail stores and, to a lesser extent, improved margins on clearance business. In our Asia/Pacific segment, the gross profit was generally flat compared to the prior year.
Our SG&A for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 decreased 2% to $609.7 million from $621.2 million in the comparable period of the prior year. SG&A decreased 6% in constant currency. In the Americas segment, these expenses decreased 13% to $237.5 million from $273.3 million in the comparable period

of the prior year, while our European segment SG&A increased 3% to $248.0 million from $241.6 million, and our Asia/Pacific segment SG&A increased 15% to $92.8 million from $80.5 million for those same periods. As a percentage of revenues, SG&A increased to 45.4% for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 from 43.2% for the nine months ended July 31, 2009. In the Americas, SG&A as a percentage of revenues decreased to 38.2% compared to 39.6% the year before. In Europe, SG&A as a percentage of revenues increased to 46.1% from 41.6%, and in Asia/Pacific, SG&A as a percentage of revenues increased to 51.5% from 48.8% for those same periods. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of revenues in our Americas segment was primarily a result of lower overall expenses due to cost cutting, partially offset by lower revenues. The increase in SG&A as a percentage of revenues in our European segment was primarily caused by lower revenues and, to a lesser extent, the cost of operating additional retail stores. In our Asia/Pacific segment, the increase in SG&A as a percentage of revenues was primarily the result of lower revenues.
Interest expense for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 increased to $63.5 million from $43.1 million in the comparable period of the prior year primarily as a result of higher interest rates associated with our debt structure, although $19.6 million of the $63.5 million was non-cash interest expense.
Our foreign currency gain amounted to $6.4 million for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 compared to a $6.8 million loss in the comparable period of the prior year. The current year gain resulted primarily from the foreign currency exchange effect of certain non-U.S. dollar denominated liabilities and certain U.S. dollar denominated assets of our foreign subsidiaries.
Our income tax expense for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 was $18.2 million compared to $60.5 million for the nine months ended July 31, 2009. The income tax rate for the comparable period of the prior year was unfavorably impacted by a non-cash valuation allowance recorded against our deferred tax assets in the United States.
Our income from continuing operations for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 was $11.6 million, or $0.08 per share on a diluted basis, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $57.5 million, or $0.45 per share on a diluted basis, in the comparable period of the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $148.1 million from $93.9 million for those same periods.
Financial Position, Capital Resources and Liquidity
We generally finance our working capital needs and capital investments with operating cash flows and bank revolving lines of credit. Multiple banks in the United States, Europe and Australia make these lines of credit available to us. Term loans are also used to supplement these lines of credit and are typically used to finance long-term assets. In fiscal 2005, we issued $400 million of senior notes to fund a portion of the Rossignol purchase price and to refinance certain existing indebtedness, and in July 2009, we closed a $153.1 million five year senior secured term loan, refinanced our existing asset-based credit facility with a new $200 million three year asset-based credit facility for our Americas segment, and refinanced our short-term uncommitted lines of credit in Europe with a new €268 million multi-year facility. The closing of these transactions enabled us to extend a significant portion of our short-term maturities to a long-term basis. However, the applicable interest rates on these refinanced obligations, particularly the $153.1 million term loan, were higher than on the obligations they replaced. These higher interest rates are reflected in our net interest expense of $63.5 million for the nine months ended July 31, 2010, which represents an increase of $20.5 million in interest expense over the nine months ended July 31, 2009. However, $19.6 million of this additional interest expense was non-cash interest. As of July 31, 2010, we had a total of approximately $843 million of indebtedness compared to a total of approximately $1,039 million of indebtedness at October 31, 2009. Our total indebtedness declined primarily as a result of scheduled repayments made on our European long-term debt, the payment of the deferred purchase price obligation from the Rossignol acquisition and the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
During the three months ended July 31, 2010, we entered into a debt-for-equity exchange agreement with Rhône Group LLC, acting in its capacity as the administrative agent for the Rhône senior secured term

33


Table of Contents

loans. Pursuant to such agreement, a combined total of $140 million of principal balance outstanding under the Rhône senior secured term loans was exchanged for a total of 31.1 million shares of our common stock, which represents an exchange price of $4.50 per share. We closed the exchange on August 9, 2010, resulting in the further de-leveraging of our consolidated balance sheet.
As a result of this exchange, we will recognize significant charges in order to write-off a pro-rata portion of the deferred debt issuance costs that were capitalized in connection with the issuance of the Rhône senior secured term loans, as well as for a pro-rata portion of the debt discount that was recorded upon the issuance of the warrants associated with such senior secured term loans. We expect that the total charge for these write-offs will be approximately $28.7 million. This charge will be recognized during the three months ending October 31, 2010 and will be non-recurring, non-cash and non-operating. With the lower debt balance as a result of the exchange, we expect our interest expense to decline in future periods. The elimination of $140 million of outstanding principal balance should result in approximately $26.1 million in annual interest expense savings.
We intend to refinance the remaining outstanding balance under the Rhône senior secured term loans (approximately $23.9 million) with a new term loan that has terms more favorable to us than the credit markets permitted a year ago. We expect to close this transaction during the three months ending October 31, 2010. If we successfully refinance the remaining balance of the Rhône senior secured term loans, we will have to recognize additional write-offs of approximately $4.5 million, but we should also gain future annual interest expense savings of approximately $4.2 million.
On August 27, 2010, we entered into an amendment to our existing $200 million asset-based credit facility (“Credit Facility”) for our Americas segment. The amended Credit Facility is a $150 million facility (with the option to expand the facility to $250 million on certain conditions) and the amendment, among other things, extended the maturity date of the Credit Facility to August 27, 2014 (compared to July 31, 2012 under the original facility). The amended Credit Facility includes a $102.5 million sublimit for letters of credit and bears interest at a rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 2.5% to 3.0% (compared to LIBOR plus a margin of 4.0% to 4.5% under the original facility), depending upon availability.
We are highly leveraged; however, we believe that our cash flows from operations, together with our existing credit facilities and term loans will be adequate to fund our capital requirements for at least the next twelve months. We also believe that our short-term uncommitted lines of credit in Asia/Pacific will continue to be made available. If these lines of credit are not made available, we could be adversely affected.
During the three months ended July 31, 2010, we obtained licenses from a software vendor in preparation for the implementation of a new global enterprise-wide reporting system. We are currently in the project planning stages and we expect to begin implementation on a component of our business in the U.S. during the three months ending October 31, 2010. As a result of the selection of this new system, we are currently evaluating our existing systems to determine if any may no longer be used upon implementation of the new system. This evaluation could result in the write-off of any systems that will no longer be in use, causing us to record future impairment losses.
Cash Flows
Operating activities from continuing operations provided cash of $189.8 million in the nine months ended July 31, 2010 compared to $138.5 million in the nine months ended July 31, 2009. This $51.3 million increase in cash provided was due to a decrease in our net loss and other non-cash charges of $66.0 million, which was primarily the result of having net income in the current year, partially offset by increases in working capital of $14.7 million.
Capital expenditures from continuing operations totaled $30.0 million for the nine months ended July 31, 2010, compared to $32.5 million in the comparable period of the prior year. These investments include company-owned stores and ongoing investments in computer, warehouse and manufacturing equipment. We had no acquisitions during the nine month period ended July 31, 2010. As discussed above, we plan

34


Table of Contents

to implement a new global enterprise-wide reporting system. The implementation costs of this project are expected to increase our level of capital expenditures over the next three years and the ongoing maintenance of this system could also require higher levels of investment as compared to our current systems. We expect to fund these expenditures from operating cash flows.
During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, net cash used in financing activities from continuing operations totaled $156.9 million, compared to $56.3 million in the comparable period of the prior year. Cash used primarily related to scheduled debt repayments, as well as a payment for the Rossignol deferred purchase price obligation of approximately $45.6 million, which was paid in April 2010.
The net increase in cash and cash equivalents for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 was $56.1 million compared to a net increase of $63.8 million in the comparable period of the prior year. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $155.7 million at July 31, 2010 compared to $99.5 million at October 31, 2009, while working capital was $491.8 million at July 31, 2010 compared to $561.7 million at October 31, 2009.
Trade Accounts Receivable and Inventories
Our trade accounts receivable decreased 21% to $340.9 million at July 31, 2010 from $430.9 million at October 31, 2009. Accounts receivable in our Americas segment decreased 11% to $176.0 million at July 31, 2010 from $198.5 million at October 31, 2009, European segment accounts receivable decreased 22% to $133.1 million from $170.4 million and Asia/Pacific segment accounts receivable decreased 49% to $31.8 million from $62.0 million. Compared to July 31, 2009, accounts receivable decreased 14% in the Americas segment, 27% in our European segment and 10% in our Asia/Pacific segment. In constant currency, consolidated trade accounts receivable decreased 18% compared to July 31, 2009. The decrease in consolidated trade accounts receivable was a result of lower levels of revenues and improved collections. Included in accounts receivable at July 31, 2010 are approximately $19.7 million of value added tax and goods and services tax related to foreign accounts receivable. Such taxes are not reported as net revenues and as such, are deducted from accounts receivable to more accurately compute days sales outstanding. Overall average days sales outstanding decreased by approximately 6 days at July 31, 2010 compared to July 31, 2009.
Consolidated inventories increased 1% to $270.9 million at July 31, 2010 from $267.7 million at October 31, 2009. Inventories in the Americas segment decreased 3% to $106.1 million from $109.8 million at October 31, 2009, European segment inventories increased 10% to $105.4 million from $95.5 million and Asia/Pacific segment inventories decreased 5% to $59.4 million from $62.4 million. Compared to July 31, 2009, inventories decreased 27% in the Americas segment, 18% in our European segment and 2% in our Asia/Pacific segment. In constant currency, our consolidated inventories decreased 18% compared to July 31, 2009. The decrease in consolidated inventories was a result of less inventory purchases to support lower levels of revenues. Consolidated average annual inventory turnover was approximately 3.2 at July 31, 2010 compared to approximately 3.0 at July 31, 2009.
Income Taxes
During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, our liability for uncertain tax positions, exclusive of interest and penalties, increased by $102.1 million to approximately $144.2 million. Our liability increased by $102.4 million for positions taken in the current period, by $8.6 million for positions taken in prior periods, and was partially offset by an $8.9 million reduction primarily due to a lapse in a statute of limitations. The nature of the net increase relates primarily to intercompany restructuring transactions between foreign affiliates.
During the nine months ended July 31, 2010, we also recorded a liability of $101.5 million that, if resolved unfavorably, would result in the reduction of tax attributes rather than a cash obligation. This liability and the corresponding tax attributes are presented on a net basis on our accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

35

If our positions are favorably sustained by the relevant taxing authority, approximately $131.8 million, excluding interest and penalties, of uncertain tax position liabilities would favorably impact our effective tax rate in future periods.
Commitments
As discussed above, we successfully closed a $140 million debt-for-equity exchange with Rhône on August 9, 2010, an amendment to our asset-based line of credit agreement in the Americas region on August 27, 2010, and we expect to close a new term loan (to be used to repay the remaining outstanding balance of the Rhône senior secured term loans) during the three months ending October 31, 2010. There have been no other material changes outside the ordinary course of business in our contractual obligations since October 31, 2009.
Critical Accounting Policies
Our condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To prepare these financial statements, we must make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities. These estimates also affect our reported revenues and expenses. Judgments must also be made about the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Actual results could be significantly different from these estimates. We believe that the following discussion addresses the accounting policies that are necessary to understand and evaluate our reported financial results.
Revenue Recognition
Revenues are recognized when the risk of ownership and title passes to our customers. Generally, we extend credit to our customers and do not require collateral. None of our sales agreements with any of our customers provide for any rights of return. However, we do approve returns on a case-by-case basis at our sole discretion to protect our brands and our image. We provide allowances for estimated returns when revenues are recorded, and related losses have historically been within our expectations. If returns are higher than our estimates, our results of operations would be adversely affected.
Accounts Receivable
It is not uncommon for some of our customers to have financial difficulties from time to time. This is normal given the wide variety of our account base, which includes small surf shops, medium-sized retail chains, and some large department store chains. Throughout the year, we perform credit evaluations of our customers, and we adjust credit limits based on payment history and the customer’s current creditworthiness. We continuously monitor our collections and maintain a reserve for estimated credit losses based on our historical experience and any specific customer collection issues that have been identified. Historically, our losses have been consistent with our estimates, but there can be no assurance that we will continue to experience the same credit loss rates that we have experienced in the past. Unforeseen, material financial difficulties of our customers could have an adverse impact on our results of operations.
Inventories
We value inventories at the cost to purchase and/or manufacture the product or the current estimated market value of the inventory, whichever is lower. We regularly review our inventory quantities on hand, and adjust inventory values for excess and obsolete inventory based primarily on estimated forecasts of product demand and market value. Demand for our products could fluctuate significantly. The demand for our products could be negatively affected by many factors, including the following:
  weakening economic conditions;
 
  terrorist acts or threats;
 
  unanticipated changes in consumer preferences;
 
  reduced customer confidence; and
 
  unseasonable weather.

36


Table of Contents

Some of these factors could also interrupt the production and/or importation of our products or otherwise increase the cost of our products. As a result, our operations and financial performance could be negatively affected. Additionally, our estimates of product demand and/or market value could be inaccurate, which could result in an understated or overstated provision required for excess and obsolete inventory.
Long-Lived Assets
We acquire tangible and intangible assets in the normal course of our business. We evaluate the recoverability of the carrying amount of these long-lived assets (including fixed assets, trademarks, licenses and other amortizable intangibles) whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying value exceeds the undiscounted future cash flows estimated to result from the use and eventual disposition of the asset. Impairments are recognized in operating earnings. We continually use judgment when applying these impairment rules to determine the timing of the impairment tests, the undiscounted cash flows used to assess impairments, and the fair value of a potentially impaired asset. The reasonableness of our judgment could significantly affect the carrying value of our long-lived assets.
Goodwill
We evaluate the recoverability of goodwill at least annually based on a two-step impairment test. The first step compares the fair value of each reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. We have three reporting units under which we evaluate goodwill for impairment, the Americas, Europe and Asia/Pacific. We estimate the fair value of our reporting units using a combination of a discounted cash flow approach and market approach. Material assumptions in our test for impairment include future cash flows of each reporting unit, discount rates applied to these cash flows and current market estimates of value. The discount rates used approximate our cost of capital. Future cash flows assume future levels of growth in each reporting unit’s business. If any of these assumptions significantly change, including a change in expected future growth rates or valuation multiples, we may be required to record future impairments of goodwill. If the carrying amount exceeds fair value under the first step of our goodwill impairment test, then the second step of the impairment test is performed to measure the amount of any impairment loss.
As of October 31, 2009, the fair value of the Americas reporting unit substantially exceeded its carrying value. For our Europe and Asia/Pacific reporting units, the fair value exceeded the carrying value by approximately 7% and 5%, respectively. Goodwill allocated to our Europe and Asia/Pacific reporting units was $184.8 million and $71.1 million, respectively, as of October 31, 2009. Based on the uncertainty of future growth rates and other assumptions used to estimate goodwill recoverability in these reporting units, future reductions in our expected cash flows for Europe or Asia/Pacific could cause a material impairment of goodwill.
Stock-Based Compensation Expense
We recognize compensation expense for all stock-based payments net of an estimated forfeiture rate and only recognize compensation cost for those shares expected to vest using the graded vested method over the requisite service period of the award. For option valuation, we determine the fair value using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model which requires the input of certain assumptions, including the expected life of the stock-based payment awards, stock price volatility and interest rates.
Income Taxes
Income tax expense for interim periods is recognized based on the estimated annual effective tax rate applied to pretax income. A deferred income tax asset or liability is established for the expected future consequences of temporary differences in the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities. We consider future taxable income and ongoing prudent and feasible tax planning strategies in assessing the value of our deferred tax assets. If we determine that it is more likely than not that these assets will not be realized, we would reduce the value of these assets to their expected realizable value, thereby decreasing net income. Evaluating the value of these assets is necessarily based on our judgment. If we

37


Table of Contents

subsequently determined that the deferred tax assets, which had been written down would, in our judgment, be realized in the future, the value of the deferred tax assets would be increased, thereby increasing net income in the period when that determination was made.
On November 1, 2007, we adopted the authoritative guidance included in ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” This guidance clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in the financial statements. ASC 740 provides that a tax benefit from an uncertain tax position may be recognized when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including resolutions of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the tax position. We recognize accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of our provision for income taxes. The application of ASC 740 can create significant variability in our tax rate from period to period upon changes in or adjustments to our uncertain tax positions.
Foreign Currency Translation
A significant portion of our revenues are generated in Europe, where we operate with the euro as our functional currency, and a smaller portion of our revenues are generated in Asia/Pacific, where we operate with the Australian dollar and Japanese yen as our functional currencies. Our European revenues in the United Kingdom are denominated in British pounds, and substantial portions of our European and Asia/Pacific product is sourced in U.S. dollars, both of which result in exposure to gains and losses that could occur from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Our assets and liabilities that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rate of exchange on the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated using the average exchange rate for the period. Gains and losses from translation of foreign subsidiary financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in accumulated other comprehensive income or loss.
As part of our overall strategy to manage our level of exposure to the risk of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, we enter into various foreign currency exchange contracts generally in the form of forward contracts. For all contracts that qualify as cash flow hedges, we record the changes in the fair value of the derivatives in other comprehensive income or loss.
New Accounting Pronouncements
See Note 2 — New Accounting Pronouncements for a discussion of pronouncements that may affect our future financial reporting.
Forward-Looking Statements
All statements included in this report, other than statements or characterizations of historical fact, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the trends and uncertainties in our financial condition, liquidity and results of operations. These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry, management’s beliefs, and certain assumptions made by us and speak only as of the date of this report. Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “predicts,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “likely,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” and similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections, guidance, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, our actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to, the following:
  continuing deterioration of global economic conditions and credit and capital markets;
 
  our ability to remain compliant with our debt covenants;
 
  our ability to achieve the financial results that we anticipate;

38


Table of Contents

  payments due on contractual commitments and other debt obligations;
 
  future expenditures for capital projects;
  our ability to continue to maintain our brand image and reputation;
  foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations; and
  changes in political, social and economic conditions and local regulations, particularly in Europe and Asia.
We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. In light of these risks and uncertainties, we cannot assure you that the forward-looking information contained herein will, in fact, transpire.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
We are exposed to a variety of risks, including foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and changes in interest rates that affect interest expense.
Foreign Currency and Derivatives
We are exposed to financial statement gains and losses as a result of translating the operating results and financial position of our international subsidiaries. We translate the local currency statements of operations of our foreign subsidiaries into U.S. dollars using the average exchange rate during the reporting period. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates affect our reported results and distort comparisons from period to period. By way of example, when the U.S. dollar strengthens compared to the euro, there is a negative effect on our reported results for our European segment because it takes more profits in euros to generate the same amount of profits in stronger U.S. dollars. In addition, the statements of operations of our Asia/Pacific segment are translated from Australian dollars and Japanese yen into U.S. dollars, and there is a negative effect on our reported results for Asia/Pacific when the U.S. dollar is stronger in comparison to the Australian dollar or Japanese yen.
European revenues decreased 9% in euros during the nine months ended July 31, 2010 compared to the nine months ended July 31, 2009. As measured in U.S. dollars and reported in our condensed consolidated statements of operations, European revenues decreased 7% as a result of a stronger euro versus the U.S. dollar in comparison to the prior year.
Asia/Pacific revenues decreased 14% in Australian dollars during the nine months ended July 31, 2010 compared to the nine months ended July 31, 2009. As measured in U.S. dollars and reported in our condensed consolidated statements of operations, Asia/Pacific revenues increased 9% as a result of a stronger Australian dollar versus the U.S. dollar in comparison to the prior year.
Our other foreign currency and interest rate risks are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2009 in Item 7A.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

39


Table of Contents

We carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of July 31, 2010, the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of July 31, 2010.
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the quarter ended July 31, 2010 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
