Steven Nichols, Chairman of the Board and President, stated, “The past several years, domestic K•Swiss has suffered from declining future orders and sales. We have been aggressively addressing these trends with new product initiatives. While there was a positive impact from these initiatives in our June 30, 2012 backlog, it was not evident due to the declining trends in the overall domestic business. We are starting to see some overall positive results in our early domestic K•Swiss first quarter 2013 futures bookings. Additionally, we continue to execute on our focus initiatives for 2012, which are to reduce inventory and costs as well as drive improved performance from our Palladium brand.”
