Ron Snyder, president and CEO of Crocs, Inc. commented: “The first half of 2008 was a challenging period for our Company as we dealt with a difficult macro-economic environment and lower than expected demand in certain markets. Despite our recent financial results, we continue to be confident about the strength of the Crocs brand and we remain optimistic about the future potential of this business. Over the near-term, we are focused on further reducing our expenses in order to exit this year with a leaner infrastructure while at the same time strategically increasing the retail presence and consumer awareness of our more recent product introductions. Longer-term, we are developing more comprehensive lines of footwear under specific category segments and implementing a more disciplined distribution strategy in order to reinvigorate our top-line. We are committed to improving our execution across the board and returning this company to growth and profitability.”
As of June 30, 2008, inventories decreased 17% to $220.2 million compared to $265.5 million as of March 31, 2008.

For the quarter ending September 30, 2008, the company reiterates that it expects revenues to be in the range of $195.0 million to $205.0 million and diluted earnings per share of approximately 1 cents to 5 cents.
