The Company noted the benefits associated with combining and integrating the operations of Gregory with those of Black Diamond Equipment were not present during the fourth quarter. The cost savings associated with the combination of Black Diamond Equipment and Gregory are expected to be realized in 2011.
Peter Metcalf, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased to have achieved our short-term goals for the fourth quarter while having continued to focus on long-term, strategic growth initiatives. We have nearly completed the integration of the operations of Gregory and Black Diamond Equipment with the Company's public company infrastructure. The formation of this platform is a true milestone in the development of our Company. We are excited to now press forward with a thoughtful, compelling strategy to build our capabilities and to supplement our expected organic growth with acquisitions. We believe that we have an excellent opportunity to continue to develop our company into one of the world's leading, and most respected outdoor lifestyle companies. As we do so, we will remain dedicated to and indistinguishable from the sports and user communities which we were founded to serve."
