John McCarvel, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We continued to experience strong global demand versus the prior year period, particularly in Asia. The performance of our spring / summer 2011 product line and the composition of our backlog at September 30, 2011 underscores the progress we have made diversifying Crocs beyond its clog origins. We still remain confident that our long-term brand and growing selection of sneakers, casual shoes, and boots have the ability to penetrate the cold weather selling season in each of our geographic regions. While these are competitive categories with established leaders, we believe we can continue to capture market share and further reduce the seasonality of our business over the long-term.”
