McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “We're very pleased to again deliver financial results that exceeded our prior expectations. Even as the global economies exhibit inconsistent signs of recovery, it's clear that the bold steps we've taken over the past several quarters to improve our operations and to stabilize our financial structure have made us a much stronger company. With inventories well-managed and great products in the market, we are well positioned to deliver improved financial performance in the future.”
