Quiksilver Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results

--Company Continues to Drive Efficiencies; SG&A Down Significantly--

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Quiksilver, Inc. (NYS: ZQK) today announced operating results for the fiscal 2013 third quarter ended July 31, 2013.

"Our third quarter results reflect progress on our path toward improving operating efficiencies," said Andy Mooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quiksilver, Inc. "Pro-forma adjusted EBITDA increased by $4 million, selling, general and administrative expenses were reduced by $9 million and we continued to right-size our organization worldwide. In addition, our EMEA region returned to sales growth, and our global e-commerce channel and emerging markets contributed meaningful revenue increases. While global net revenues were down for our DC and Quiksilver brands, we believe that the product development plans we have in place will deliver improved sales over time.

"We are pleased with the advancements on our Profit Improvement Plan. We completed assembling our senior management team, refinanced debt to extend maturities and increase liquidity, reduced headcount, narrowed our athletes and events roster, began re-engineering supply chain processes and continued to close underperforming retail stores. Our plan is on track and we remain confident that our initiatives will lead to improved efficiency and profitability."
