DECKERS OUTDOOR CORPORATION

AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

(amounts in thousands, except share quantity and per share data)

 

(1)                      General

 

(a)          Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual audited consolidated financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation for each of the periods presented.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be achieved for full fiscal years.  Deckers Outdoor Corporation strives to be a premier lifestyle marketer that builds niche brands into global market leaders by designing and marketing innovative, functional and fashion-oriented footwear and accessories, developed for both high performance outdoor activities and everyday casual lifestyle use.  The Company’s business is seasonal, with the highest percentage of UGG® brand net sales occurring in the third and fourth quarters and the highest percentage of Teva® brand net sales occurring in the first and second quarters of each year. The other brands do not have a significant seasonal impact on the Company.  The Company owns 51% of a joint venture with an affiliate of Stella International Holdings Limited (Stella International) for the primary purpose of opening and operating retail stores for the UGG brand in China.  Stella International is also one of the Company’s major manufacturers in China.

 

In January 2010, the Company acquired certain assets and liabilities, including reacquisition of its distribution rights, from its Teva brand distributor that sold to retailers in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg (Benelux) as well as France.  In September 2010, the Company purchased a portion of a privately held footwear company as an equity method investment.  In January 2011, the Company acquired certain assets from its UGG, Teva, and Simple® brands distributor that sold to retailers in the United Kingdom (UK) and from its UGG and Simple brands distributor that sold to retailers in Benelux and France.  The distribution rights in these regions reverted back to the Company on December 31, 2010 upon the expiration of the distribution agreements.  On May 19, 2011, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement with Sanuk USA LLC, C&C Partners, Ltd., and the equity holders of both entities (collectively referred to as “Sanuk” or the “Sanuk brand”).  On July 1, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of the purchased assets and the assumption of the assumed liabilities of the Sanuk® brand.

 

As contemplated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related footnotes have been condensed and do not contain certain information that will be included in the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto.  For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and related footnotes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.

 

(b)         Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with US generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in these condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes.  Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to inventory reserves, accounts receivable reserves, returns liabilities, stock compensation, impairment assessments, depreciation and amortization, income tax liabilities and uncertain tax positions, fair value of financial instruments, and fair values of acquired intangibles, assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

(2)                      Stockholders’ Equity

 

In June 2009, the Company approved a stock repurchase program to repurchase up to $50,000 of the Company’s common stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements and other factors.  The program did not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock.  The purchases were funded from available working capital.  During both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company repurchased approximately 245,000 shares for approximately $20,000, or an average price of $81.22 per share.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company had repurchased the full amount authorized under this program.

 

On June 22, 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company adopted a new long-term incentive award under its 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Level III Awards”).  These awards will be available for issuance to current and future members of the Company’s management team, including the Company’s named executive officers.  Each recipient will receive a specified maximum number of restricted stock units (RSUs), each of which will represent the right to receive one share of the Company’s

common stock.  These awards vest subject to certain long-term performance objectives and certain long-term service conditions.  The awards will vest on December 31, 2014 only if the Company meets certain revenue targets ranging between $1,850,000 and $2,500,000 and certain diluted earnings per share targets ranging between $7.00 and $9.60 for the year ended December 31, 2014.  No vesting of any Level III Award will occur if either of the threshold performance criteria is not met for the year ending December 31, 2014.  To the extent financial performance is achieved above the threshold levels, the number of RSUs that will vest will increase up to the maximum number of units granted under the award.  Under this new program, during the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company granted a maximum amount of 275,000 RSUs.  The grant date fair value of these RSUs was $82.09 per share.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company did not believe that the achievement of the performance objectives for the Level III Awards was probable, and therefore the Company did not recognize compensation expense for these awards. If the performance objectives become probable, the Company will then begin recording an expense for the Level III Awards.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2011, 120,000 stock appreciation rights (SARs) were exercised at a weighted-average exercise price of $26.73, for an aggregate intrinsic value of $7,508.  During the six months ended June 30, 2011, 180,000 SARs were exercised at a weighted-average exercise price of $26.73, for an aggregate intrinsic value of $10,924.

(4)                      Net (Loss) Income per Share Attributable to Deckers Outdoor Corporation Common Stockholders

 

Basic net (loss) income per share represents net (loss) income attributable to Deckers Outdoor Corporation divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted net (loss) income per share represents net (loss) income attributable to Deckers Outdoor Corporation divided by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding, including the dilutive impact of potential issuances of common stock.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, the difference between the weighted-average number of basic and diluted common shares resulted from the dilutive impact of nonvested stock units (NSUs), RSUs, SARs, and options to purchase common stock.

 

The reconciliations of basic to diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding were as follows:

The Company excluded all NSUs, RSUs and SARs for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from the diluted net (loss) income per share computation because they were anti-dilutive due to the net loss for the quarter.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company excluded the SARs and RSUs for the awards that are expected to vest on December 31, 2011 through December 31, 2016.  The SARs and RSUs that vested on December 31, 2010 are included in the dilutive effect for the six months ended June 30, 2011, but not included in the three and six months ended

June 30, 2010.  These shares were excluded because the necessary conditions had not been satisfied for the shares to be issuable based on the Company’s performance through June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

 

(5)                      Fair Value Measurements

 

The fair values of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, trade accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other current assets, income taxes receivable, trade accounts payable, accrued expenses, and income taxes payable approximate the carrying values due to the relatively short maturities of these instruments.  The fair values of the Company’s long-term liabilities, if recalculated based on current interest rates, would not significantly differ from the recorded amounts.  The fair value of the Company’s derivatives are measured and recorded at fair value on a recurring basis.  The Company records the assets or liabilities associated with derivative instruments and hedging activities in other current assets or other current liabilities, respectively, in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.  The Level 2 inputs described below consist of forward spot rates at the end of the reporting period.  (See footnote 6, “Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts and Hedging,” for further information.)

 

The Company has established a nonqualified deferred compensation program with an effective date of February 1, 2010 (referred to as “the Plan”).  The Plan permits a select group of management employees, designated by the Plan Committee, to defer earnings to a future date on a nonqualified basis.  For each plan year, the Board may, but is not required to, contribute any amount it desires to any participant under the Plan. The Company’s contribution will be determined by the Board annually in the fourth quarter.  No such contribution has been approved as of June 30, 2011.  All amounts deferred under this plan are presented in long-term liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.  The value of the deferred compensation is recognized based on the fair value of the participants’ accounts.  The Company has established a trust as a reserve for the benefits payable under the Plan.

 

The inputs used in measuring fair value are prioritized into the following hierarchy:

 

·                  Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

·                  Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are either directly or indirectly observable.

·                  Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market activity exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing.

 

The table below summarizes the Company’s financial liabilities that are measured on a recurring basis at fair value:

(6)                      Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts and Hedging

 

The Company transacts business in various foreign currencies and has international sales and expenses denominated in foreign currencies, subjecting the Company to foreign currency risk.  The Company may enter into foreign currency forward or option contracts, generally with maturities of 12 months or less, to reduce the volatility of cash flows primarily related to forecasted revenue denominated in certain foreign currencies.  In addition, the Company utilizes foreign exchange forward and option contracts to mitigate foreign currency exchange rate risk associated with foreign currency-denominated assets and liabilities, primarily intercompany balances.  The Company does not use foreign currency contracts for speculative or trading purposes.

 

Certain of the Company’s foreign currency forward contracts are designated cash flow hedges of forecasted intercompany sales and are subject to foreign currency exposures. These contracts allow the Company to sell Euros and British Pounds in exchange for US dollars at specified contract rates.  At June 30, 2011, the outstanding contracts were expected to mature over the next six months.  Forward contracts are used to hedge forecasted intercompany sales over specific quarters.  Changes in the fair value of these forward contracts designated as cash flow hedges are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive (loss)

income (OCI) within stockholders’ equity, and are recognized in the condensed consolidated statements of operations during the period which approximates the time the corresponding third-party sales occur.  The Company may also enter into foreign exchange contracts that are not designated as hedging instruments for financial accounting purposes.  Accordingly, any gains or losses resulting from changes in the fair value of the non-designated contracts are reported in income.  These contracts are generally entered into to offset the gains and losses on certain intercompany balances until the expected time of repayment.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company’s total hedging contracts had notional amounts totaling approximately $57,000, held by two counterparties.

 

The Company has factored into the fair value measurements of its derivatives the nonperformance risk of the Company and the counterparty, and it did not have a material impact on the fair value of the derivatives.  The Company assesses hedge effectiveness and measures hedge ineffectiveness at least quarterly. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the ineffective portion relating to these hedges was immaterial and the hedges remained effective as of June 30, 2011.  As of June 30, 2011, the total amount in accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income (see note 3) is expected to be reclassified into income within the next nine months.

(7)                      Credit Agreement

 

In May 2010, the Company and its subsidiary, TSUBO, LLC, entered into the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with Comerica Bank (the “Credit Agreement”).  The Credit Agreement provides for a maximum availability of $20,000.  Up to $12,500 of borrowings may be in the form of letters of credit.  Amounts borrowed under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the lender’s prime rate or, at the Company’s option, at the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, plus 1.0%, and is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets.  The Credit Agreement includes annual commitment fees of $60 per year, which can be waived if the Company deposits $10,000 in non-interest bearing new deposits with Comerica Bank; provided that such deposits may be removed by the Company at any time, subject to paying a pro-rated annual commitment fee.  The Credit Agreement expires on June 1, 2012.  At June 30, 2011, the Company had no outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement and outstanding letters of credit of $724.  As a result, $19,276 was available under the Credit Agreement at June 30, 2011.

 

The Credit Agreement contains certain financial covenants.  The covenants currently include a maximum additional debt of $20,000, maximum asset sales of $5,000 and maximum loans to employees of $200.  On June 27, 2011, the Company entered into Amendment Number One to the Credit Agreement.  This amendment increased the maximum net loans to subsidiaries who are not parties to the Credit Agreement to $50,000 in the aggregate per calendar year. The Credit Agreement contains certain additional financial covenants if the outstanding obligations exceed $2,000, including a minimum tangible net worth requirement of $294,891 commencing with the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 plus 75% of consolidated net profit on a cumulative basis, no consolidated net loss for two or more consecutive fiscal quarters and maximum acquisitions of $25,000 per calendar year. Because the Company’s outstanding obligations were less than $2,000 at the time of its Sanuk acquisition, the Company is still in compliance with this financial covenant and is not restricted to $2,000 in borrowings in this calendar year; the Company still has the ability to borrow the full remaining available amount.

(8)                      Business Segments, Concentration of Business, and Credit Risk and Significant Customers

 

The Company’s accounting policies of the segments below are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies in the Company’s Annual Report, except that the Company does not allocate corporate overhead costs or non-operating income and expenses to segments. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on net sales and income or loss from operations. The Company’s reportable segments include the strategic business units for the worldwide wholesale operations of the UGG brand, Teva brand, and its other brands, its eCommerce business and its retail store business. The wholesale operations of each brand are managed separately because each requires different marketing, research and development, design, sourcing and sales strategies. The eCommerce and retail store segments are managed separately because they are direct to consumer sales, while the brand segments are wholesale sales. The income or loss from operations for each of the segments includes only those costs which are specifically related to each segment, which consist primarily of cost of sales, costs for research and development, design, selling and marketing, depreciation, amortization and the costs of employees and their respective expenses that are directly related to each business segment. The unallocated corporate overhead costs are the shared costs of the organization and include the following: costs of the distribution centers, certain executive and stock compensation, accounting and finance, legal, information technology, human resources and facilities costs, among others. The gross profit derived from the sales to third parties of the eCommerce and retail stores segments is separated into two components: (i) the wholesale profit is included in the related operating income or loss of each wholesale segment, and (ii) the retail profit is included in the operating income of the eCommerce and retail stores segments.  In prior periods, the gross profit of the international portion of the eCommerce and retail stores segments included both the wholesale and retail profit.  This change in segment reporting only changed the presentation within the below table and did not impact the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for any periods.  The segment information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 has been adjusted retrospectively to conform to the current period presentation.

 

The Company’s other brands include Simple®, TSUBO®, Ahnu®, and MOZO®.  The wholesale operations of the Company’s other brands are included as one reportable segment, other wholesale, presented in the figures below.  Business segment information is summarized as follows:

The assets allocable to each segment generally include accounts receivable, inventory, fixed assets, intangible assets and certain other assets that are specifically identifiable with one of the Company’s segments.  Unallocated assets are the assets not specifically related to the segments and generally include cash and cash equivalents, deferred tax assets, and various other assets shared by the Company’s segments. Reconciliations of total assets from reportable segments to the condensed consolidated balance sheets are as follows:

A portion of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents are held as cash in operating accounts that are with third party financial institutions.  These balances, at times, exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance limits. While the Company regularly monitors the cash balances in its operating accounts and adjusts the balances as appropriate, these cash balances could be impacted if the underlying financial institutions fail or are subject to other adverse conditions in the financial markets. As of June 30, 2011, the Company had experienced no loss or lack of access to cash in its operating accounts.

 

The remainder of the Company’s cash equivalents is invested in interest bearing funds managed by third party investment management institutions. These investments can include US treasuries and government agencies, money market funds, and municipal bonds, among other investments. Certain of these investments are subject to general credit, liquidity, market, and interest rate risks.  Investment risk has been and may further be exacerbated by US mortgage defaults and credit and liquidity issues, which have affected various sectors of the financial markets. As of June 30, 2011, the Company had experienced no loss or lack of access to its cash and cash equivalents.

 

The Company sells its products to customers throughout the US and to foreign customers located in Europe, Canada, Australia, Asia, and Latin America, among other regions.  International sales were 46.3% and 52.4% of the Company’s total net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  International sales were 35.7% and 37.8% of the Company’s total net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  As of June 30, 2011, no single foreign country comprised more than 10% of total sales.  The Company does not consider international operations a separate segment, as management reviews such operations in the aggregate with the aforementioned segments.

Management performs regular evaluations concerning the ability of its customers to satisfy their obligations and records a provision for doubtful accounts based upon these evaluations.  No single customer accounted for more than 10.0% of the Company’s net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company had one customer representing 11.5% of net trade accounts receivable.  As of December 31, 2010, the Company had one customer representing 33.2% and another customer representing 10.1% of net trade accounts receivable.

 

The Company’s production is concentrated at a limited number of independent contractor factories in China. The Company’s sourcing is concentrated in Australia and China and include a limited number of key sources for the principal raw material for certain UGG products, sheepskin.  The Company’s operations are subject to the customary risks of doing business abroad, including, but not limited to, currency fluctuations, customs duties and related fees, various import controls and other nontariff barriers, restrictions on the transfer of funds, labor unrest and strikes and, in certain parts of the world, political instability.  The supply of sheepskin can be adversely impacted by weather conditions, disease, and harvesting decisions that are completely outside the Company’s control.  Further, the price of sheepskin is impacted by demand, industry, and competitors.

 

(9)                      Commitments and Contingencies

 

The Company is currently involved in various legal claims arising from the ordinary course of business. Management does not believe that the disposition of these matters will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations. In addition, the Company has agreed to indemnify certain of its licensees, distributors and promotional partners in connection with claims related to the use of the Company’s intellectual property. The terms of such agreements range up to five years initially and generally do not provide for a limitation on the maximum potential future payments. Management believes the likelihood of any payments is remote and would be immaterial. The Company determined the risk was low based on a prior history of insignificant claims. The Company is not currently involved in any indemnification matters in regards to its intellectual property.

 

The Company filed a lawsuit against counterfeit websites asking the court to issue a temporary restraining order to freeze the payment provider accounts and assign over the domains.  In February 2011, the Company filed a guarantee in the amount of $500.  Performance of the guarantee is required by the Company in the event that a defendant proves that the restraining order should not have been issued.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company determined the risk of payment is low.  The guarantee will be in place for the duration of the lawsuit which is anticipated to be resolved within the year.

 

The Company’s federal income tax returns for the years ended December 31, 2006 through December 31, 2009 are under examination by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  In connection with the examination, the Company has received notices of proposed adjustments (NOPAs), which the Company agreed with and recorded in its financial statements.  In addition, in March 2011, the Company received a NOPA related to transfer pricing arrangements with the Company’s subsidiaries in which adjustments were asserted totaling approximately $55,000 of additional taxable income, representing additional federal taxes and penalties of approximately $27,000, excluding interest.  The Company responded to this NOPA indicating that it disagrees with the proposed adjustments and will appeal the NOPA if the Company is unable to reach a resolution at the exam level.  The Company does not know the timing of completion of the examination or if the examination will result in a material effect to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.  It is reasonably possible that the Company’s unrecognized tax benefit could change, however, the Company believes its unrecognized tax benefits are adequate.

Although the Company believes its tax estimates are reasonable and prepares its tax filings in accordance with all applicable tax laws, the final determination with respect to any tax audits, and any related litigation, could be materially different from the Company’s estimates or from its historical income tax provisions and accruals. The results of an audit or litigation could have a material effect on operating results or cash flows in the periods for which that determination is made. In addition, future period earnings may be adversely impacted by litigation costs, settlements, penalties, or interest assessments.

 

The Company has on-going income tax examinations under various state tax jurisdictions.  It is the opinion of management that these audits and inquiries will not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2011, the Company entered into contracts requiring minimum purchase commitments of sheepskin that Deckers’ affiliates, manufacturers, factories and other agents (each or collectively, a “Buyer”) must make on or before July 31, 2011.  As of June 30, 2011, the remaining commitment was approximately $19,000.  These contracts may result in unconditional purchase obligations if a Buyer does not meet the minimum purchase requirements. In the event that a Buyer does not purchase such minimum commitments on or before July 31, 2011, the Company is required to make a deposit for the remaining amounts, plus cash not yet received from a Buyer on pending orders, on or before July 31, 2011.  Such deposit shall be refundable upon receipt of payment by Buyers for such amounts.  The contract does not permit net settlement.  The Company expects sheepskin purchases by third party factories will eventually exceed the contract levels; however, subsequent to June 30, 2011, the Company believes it will be required to make a deposit for the remaining commitment, plus cash not yet received from a Buyer on pending orders, of approximately $23,000 under this contractual arrangement.  Management believes this deposit will become fully refundable and, therefore, would have an immaterial effect on the condensed consolidated statement of operations.  The Company determined this based upon its projected sales and inventory purchases.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2011, the Company entered into a new sheepskin purchase agreement for a total minimum commitment of approximately $40,000, whereby the Company will make an advance deposit of $20,000, for purchases targeted to be made by a Buyer between July 1, 2011 and January 31, 2012 under this contract.  The advance deposit shall be repaid to the Company as Buyers purchase goods under the terms of this agreement.  This agreement may result in an unconditional purchase obligation if a Buyer does not meet the minimum purchase requirements.  In the event that a Buyer does not purchase such minimum commitments, the Company shall be responsible for compliance with any and all minimum purchase commitments under this contract.  The contract does not permit net settlement. The Company expects sheepskin purchases by third party factories will eventually exceed the contract levels.  Therefore, management believes the likelihood of any non-performance payments under this contractual arrangement is remote and would have an immaterial effect on the statement of operations.  The Company determined this based upon its projected sales and inventory purchases.

 

(10)     Business Combination

 

On May 19, 2011, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement whereby it would acquire substantially all of the assets and assume the related liabilities of Sanuk, an innovative action sport and adventure footwear brand.  On July 1, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of the purchased assets and the assumption of the assumed liabilities.  The total purchase price for the assets related to the Sanuk brand was an initial cash payment of approximately $119,800 subject to certain post-closing adjustments.  Upon the close of the acquisition, the Company also made an estimated payment of $6,800 related to the post-closing adjustments.  The purchase price also includes additional participation payments (contingent consideration) over the next five years as follows:

 

·                  2011 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) multiplied by ten, less the closing payment, up to maximum of $30,000;

·                  51.8% of the gross profit in 2012, defined as total sales less the cost of sales for the business of the sellers;

·                  36.0% of gross profit in 2013;

·                  8.0% of the product of gross profit in 2015 multiplied by five.

 

There is no maximum to the contingent consideration payments for 2012, 2013, and 2015.

 

The Company made this acquisition because it believes Sanuk is a profitable, well-run business with a similar corporate culture, and provides substantial growth opportunities, particularly within the action sports market where it has a large and loyal customer base of active outdoor enthusiasts.  The Sanuk brand complements the Company’s existing brand portfolio with its unique market position through the combination of original and innovative product designs, as well as authentic and irreverent marketing campaigns.  The brand assists in balancing the Company’s existing seasonality, with its largest revenues being generated in the first half of the year.  The Sanuk brand also brings additional distribution channels to the Company, as it sells to hundreds of independent specialty surf and skate shops throughout the US that were not significantly in the Company’s existing customer portfolio.  The acquisition will be accounted for as a business combination and the Company intends to report the Sanuk brand as a new reportable segment.

 

As the acquisition date was subsequent to June 30, 2011, the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 do not contain the results of the Sanuk brand or any of the related entities.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company incurred approximately $1,400 of transaction costs for the Sanuk acquisition.

 

The purchase price, including contingent consideration, is made up of the net assets acquired, including tangible assets, trade names, customer and distributor relationships, non-compete agreements, patents, order books, and goodwill.  All of the goodwill associated with this purchase is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.  However, due to the timing of the close of the acquisition, the Company did not have sufficient time to complete the valuation of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities and the fair value of the contingent consideration, and therefore, the amount of goodwill and the tax deduction cannot be determined at this time.

 

Supplemental pro forma information has not been provided for the Sanuk brand as the acquired operations were components of two legal entities, which were separately managed.  The precise historical financial information related directly to the asset purchase agreement was not prepared. Since this financial information prior to the acquisition is not readily available, compilation of such data is impracticable.

(11)     Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU), Presentation of Comprehensive Income, an amendment to Accounting Standards Codification Topic 220, Comprehensive Income, that brings US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) into alignment with International Financial Reporting Standards for the presentation of OCI.  Effective with the Company’s annual reporting period ending December 31, 2011, the option in current GAAP that permits the presentation of OCI in the statement of changes in equity has been eliminated.  The provisions of the update provide that an entity that reports items of OCI has two options:  (1) a single statement must present the components of net income, total net income, the components of OCI, total OCI, and total comprehensive income; or (2) a two-statement approach whereby an entity must present the components of net income and total net income in the first statement.  That statement must be immediately followed by a financial statement that presents the components of OCI, a total for OCI, and a total for comprehensive income.  The adoption of this ASU will only change the presentation of OCI on the Company’s consolidated financial statements beginning with its 2011 annual report.

Overview

 

We are a leading designer, producer, marketer, and brand manager of innovative, high-quality footwear and accessories. We market our products primarily under two proprietary brands:

 

·                  UGG®: Premier brand in luxury and comfort footwear and accessories; and

 

·                  Teva®: High performance multi-sport shoes, rugged outdoor footwear, and sport sandals.

 

In addition to our primary brands, our other brands include TSUBO®, a line of high-end casual footwear that incorporates style, function and maximum comfort; Ahnu®, a line of outdoor performance and lifestyle footwear; MOZO®, a line of footwear that combines running shoe technology with work shoe toughness for individuals that spend long hours working on their feet; and Simple®, a line for which we are planning to cease distribution effective December 31, 2011.

 

We sell our brands through our quality domestic retailers and international distributors and retailers, as well as directly to our end-user consumers through our eCommerce business and our retail stores. Independent third parties manufacture all of our products. In 2010, we converted our Teva business in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg (Benelux), and France from a distributor model to a wholesale model.  In January 2011, we converted from a distributor model to a wholesale model for the UGG, Teva, and Simple brands in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland and the UGG and Simple brands in Benelux and France.

Our business has been impacted by several important trends affecting our end markets:

 

·                  The prolonged US and global economic conditions have adversely impacted businesses worldwide in general. Some of our customers have been, and more may be, adversely affected, which in turn has, and may continue to, adversely impact our financial results.

 

·                  The top grade sheepskin used in certain UGG products is in high demand and limited supply and there have been significant increases in the prices of top grade sheepskin as the demand from competitors for this material has increased.

 

·                  The markets for casual, outdoor and athletic footwear have grown significantly during the last decade. We believe this growth is a result of the trend toward casual dress in the workplace, increasingly active outdoor lifestyles and a growing emphasis on comfort.

 

·                  Consumers are more often seeking footwear designed to address a broader array of activities with the same quality, comfort and high performance attributes they have come to expect from traditional athletic footwear.

 

·                  Our customers have narrowed their footwear product breadth, focusing on brands with a rich heritage and authenticity as market category creators and leaders.

 

·                  Consumers have become increasingly focused on luxury and comfort, seeking out products and brands that are fashionable while still comfortable.

 

·                  There is an emerging sustainable lifestyle movement happening all around the world. Consumers are demanding that brands and companies become more environmentally responsible.

 

By emphasizing our brands’ images and our focus on comfort, performance and authenticity, we believe we can maintain a loyal consumer following that is less susceptible to fluctuations caused by changing fashions and changes in consumer preferences.

 

Below is an overview of the various components of our business, including some key factors that affect each business and some of our strategies for growing each business.

 

UGG Brand Overview

 

The UGG brand has become well-known throughout the US as well as internationally. Over the past several years, our UGG brand has received increased global media exposure including increased print media in ads and cooperative advertising with our customers, which has contributed to broader public awareness of the brand and significantly increased demand for the collection. We believe that the increased global media focus and demand for UGG products were driven by the following:

 

·                  consumer brand loyalty, due to the luxury and comfort of UGG footwear;

·                  continued innovation of new product categories and styles;

·                  increased marketing in high-end magazines;

·                  successful targeting of high-end distribution;

·                  adoption by high-profile celebrities as a favored footwear brand;

·                  increased media attention that has enabled us to introduce the brand to consumers much faster than we would have otherwise been able to;

·                  increased exposure to the brand driven by our concept stores which showcase all of our product offerings;

·                  continued expansion of retail through new UGG Australia stores; and

·                  continued geographic expansion across the US and internationally.

 

We believe the luxury and comfort features of UGG products will continue to drive long-term consumer demand. Recognizing that there is a significant fashion element to UGG footwear and that footwear fashions fluctuate, our strategy seeks to prolong the longevity of the brand by offering a broader product line suitable for wear in a variety of climates and occasions and by limiting distribution to selected higher-end retailers. As part of this strategy we have increased our product offering, including a growing spring line, an expanded men’s line, and a fall line that consists of a range of luxurious collections for both genders, an expanded kids’ line, as well as handbags, cold weather accessories, and outerwear. We believe that the evolution of the UGG brand and our strategy of product diversification also will help decrease our reliance on prime twinface sheepskin, which is in high demand and subject to price volatility.

Teva Brand Overview

 

Our Teva brand is positioned to be the leading innovative, global, action-outdoor brand, with over 25 years worth of contributions to the outdoor adventure experience.  The Teva brand pioneered the water sport sandal category in 1984, and to this day, our brand mission is to inspire spontaneity, camaraderie and adventure on, around, or in water.  Leveraging our core performance competencies of traction, hydro and comfort, we are focused on driving growth through innovation in the emerging action-outdoor space through multi-sport, light hiking, freestyle mountain bike riding, action water sports, and other action-outdoor lifestyle products.

 

Our efforts to expand the Teva brand beyond sandals, while embracing our core water-based competencies, contributed to significant revenue growth in 2010.  Throughout 2010 and the first half of 2011, our broader range of products demonstrated strong retail sell-through across all channels, and we believe that our retail partners have viewed both our product and marketing innovations as relevant and compelling.

 

We see an opportunity to grow the Teva brand significantly outside of the US.  In January 2010, we converted from a distributor model to a wholesale model in the Benelux region and France, enhancing our marketing and distribution capabilities in the outdoor active Benelux market.  In January 2011, we converted our Teva brand international business from an independent distributor to a wholesale model in the UK, including Scotland and Ireland, which now affords us the opportunity to better drive our brand building and growth initiatives in this important influential market.  Within the US, we see strong growth opportunities within our current core channels of distribution, outdoor specialty and sporting goods, as our product assortment evolves and expands.  Also, through effective product and distribution segmentation, we see significant expansion opportunities within the family value, department store, better footwear, and action sports channels.  However, we cannot assure investors that these efforts will be successful.

 

Other Brands Overview

 

Our other brands consist of the TSUBO, Ahnu, MOZO, and Simple brands.  Our other brands are all sold through most of our distribution channels, with the majority through wholesale channels.  We are planning to cease distribution of the Simple brand effective December 31, 2011.

 

TSUBO, meaning pressure point in Japanese, is marketed as high-end casual footwear for men and women. The brand is the synthesis of ergonomics and style, with a full line of sport and dress casuals, boots, sandals and heels constructed to provide consumers with contemporary footwear that incorporates style, function, and maximum comfort.  We are positioning the TSUBO brand as the premium footwear solution for people in the city.  We are continuing to create products to address consumers’ unique needs of all-day comfort, innovative style, and superior quality.

 

The Ahnu brand is an outdoor performance and lifestyle footwear brand for men and women.  The name Ahnu is derived from the Celtic goddess representing the balance of well-being and prosperity.  The brand focuses primarily on women consumers offering style and comfort for active women on both trails and pavement.  The product goal is to achieve uncompromising footwear performance by developing footwear that will provide the appropriate balance of traction, grip, flexibility, cushioning, and durability for a variety of outdoor activities — whether on trails, beaches, or sidewalks.

 

The MOZO brand was designed for individuals that spend long hours working on their feet.  It combines running shoe technology with work shoe toughness.  The brand is currently focused on providing footwear for culinary professionals.  We have recently expanded our distribution to include large on-line retailers and intend to expand further in 2011 into the health care worker market.

 

We expect to leverage our design, marketing and distribution capabilities to grow these brands over the next several years, consistent with our mission to build niche brands into global market leaders.  Nevertheless, we cannot assure investors that our efforts will be successful.

eCommerce Overview

 

Our eCommerce business, which sells all of our brands, allows us to reinforce our relationship with the consumer.  eCommerce enables us to meet the growing demand for our products, sell the products at retail prices and provide significant incremental operating income.  The eCommerce business provides us an opportunity to communicate to the consumer with a consistent brand message that is in line with our brands’ promises, drives awareness of key brand initiatives, and offers targeted information to specific consumer segments.  In recent years, our eCommerce business has had significant revenue growth, much of which occurred as the UGG brand gained popularity and as consumers continued to increase internet usage for footwear and other purchases.

 

Managing our eCommerce business requires us to focus on the latest trends and techniques for web design and marketing, to generate internet traffic to our websites, to effectively convert website visits into orders, and to maximize average order sizes.  We plan to continue to grow our eCommerce business through improved website features and performance, increased marketing, more international websites, and utilization of mobile and tablet technology.  Nevertheless, we cannot assure investors that revenue from our eCommerce business will continue to grow.

 

Retail Stores Overview

 

Our retail stores are predominantly UGG Australia concept stores and UGG Australia outlet stores.  Our retail stores enable us to directly impact our customers’ experience, meet the growing demand for these products, sell the products at retail prices and provide us with incremental operating income.  In addition, our UGG Australia concept stores allow us to showcase our entire line; whereas, a retailer may not carry the whole line.  Through our outlet stores, we sell some of our discontinued styles from prior seasons, plus products made specifically for the outlet stores.  We sell Teva products as well as some of our other brands through our UGG Australia outlet stores.

 

As of June 30, 2011, we had a total of 30 retail stores worldwide.  These stores are company-owned and operated and include our China stores, which are owned and operated with our joint venture partner.  For 2011, we plan to open additional retail stores in the US and significantly expand our retail presence internationally, primarily in Asia.

 

Seasonality

 

Our business is seasonal, with the highest percentage of UGG brand net sales occurring in the third and fourth quarters and the highest percentage of Teva brand net sales occurring in the first and second quarters of each year.  Our other brands do not have a significant seasonal impact.

With the large growth in the UGG brand over the past several years, net sales in the last half of the year have exceeded that for the first half of the year. Given our expectations for our brands, we currently expect this trend to continue. Nonetheless, actual results could differ materially depending upon consumer preferences, availability of product, competition and our customers continuing to carry and promote our various product lines, among other risks and uncertainties. See Part II, Item 1A, “Risk Factors.”

Overview.  The increase in net sales was primarily due to an increase in Teva and UGG product sales.  The loss from operations resulted primarily from the higher selling, general and administrative expenses and decreased gross margin, partially offset by higher net sales.

The increase in net sales was primarily driven by strong sales for the Teva and UGG brands.  We experienced an increase in the number of pairs sold primarily through our Teva wholesale channels, partially offset by a decrease in pairs sold in our UGG wholesale segment.  This resulted in the overall volume of footwear sold for all brands to remain relatively flat at approximately 3.6 million pairs sold for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.  Our weighted-average wholesale selling price per pair increased to $38.28 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from $35.41 for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

 

Wholesale net sales of our UGG brand decreased primarily due to a decrease in international sales, mainly in the European region.  This decrease was related to our conversion from a distributor model to a direct wholesale model, causing a shift in sales of our fall products to later in the year in 2011 versus 2010.  We also experienced a decrease in the overall volume of pairs sold.  The decrease was partially offset by an increase in domestic sales, including an increase in the average selling price.  We cannot assure investors that UGG brand sales will continue to grow at their past pace.

 

Wholesale net sales of our Teva brand increased due to both an increase in the volume of pairs sold and an increase in the average selling price.

 

Wholesale net sales of our other brands increased due to an increase in pairs sold, partially offset by a decrease in the average selling price.

 

Net sales of our eCommerce business increased due to both an increase in the average selling price and a slight increase in the number of pairs sold.

 

Net sales of our retail store business, which are primarily UGG brand sales, increased largely due to the addition of eleven new stores opened since June 30, 2010.  New stores that were not open during the full three months ended June 30, 2010 contributed approximately $8,000 of retail sales for three months ended June 30, 2011.  We do not expect this growth rate to continue because as we increase the number of our stores, each new store will have less proportional impact on our growth rate.  For those stores that were

Table of Contents

 

open during the full second quarter of 2011 and 2010, same store sales grew by 23.6%.  Nevertheless, we cannot assure investors that retail store sales will continue to grow at their recent pace or that revenue from our retail store business will not at some point decline.

 

International sales, which are included in the segment sales above, for all of our products combined represented 46.3% and 52.4% of worldwide net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The decrease in international sales was largely due to decreased sales for our UGG wholesale channel, primarily in the European region, related to our conversion to a direct wholesale model.  This decrease was partially offset by increases in our Teva wholesale channel in the European region, as well as our retail store business in the Asian region.

 

Gross Profit.  As a percentage of net sales, gross margin decreased primarily due to approximately $3,100 of duty refunds in the second quarter of 2010 that did not recur in the second quarter of 2011.  In addition, in the second quarter of 2011, we experienced increased production costs for all brands, as well as an increased impact of closeout sales and increased inventory write-downs, primarily related to our Simple brand.  The decrease was partially offset by an increased mix of retail sales, which generally carry higher margins.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (SG&A).  As a percentage of net sales, SG&A increased primarily from:

 

·                  increased retail costs of approximately $6,000, largely related to eleven new retail stores that were not open as of June 30, 2010;

·                  increased divisional brand expenses of approximately $4,000 in support of our continued growth;

·                  increased international division expenses of approximately $3,000 in support of our continued international expansion and our distributor conversions to the wholesale model;

·                  increased marketing expenses of approximately $3,000; and

·                  increased legal expenses of approximately $2,000.

 

SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales were unusually high during this period primarily due to the items discussed above as well as our second quarter generally being our lowest volume selling season.  However, we expect SG&A as a percentage of sales for the full year 2011 to be closer to that of the full year 2010.

 

(Loss) Income from Operations. The gross profit derived from the sales to third parties of the eCommerce and retail store segments is separated into two components:  (i) the wholesale profit is included in the related operating income or loss of each wholesale segment, and (ii) the remaining profit is included in the eCommerce and retail stores segments.  The following table summarizes operating (loss) income by segment:

We incurred a loss from operations versus income due to the increase in SG&A expenses and cost of sales, partially offset by an increase in net sales.

 

The decrease in income from operations of UGG brand wholesale was primarily the result of decreased international sales of approximately $10,000 and higher marketing and promotional and divisional expenses of approximately $5,000.  The decrease was partially offset by an increase in domestic sales of approximately $7,000.

 

The slight increase in income from operations of Teva brand wholesale was primarily due to the increased sales, partially offset by a decrease of 3.7 gross margin percentage points primarily due to higher inventory write-downs and an increased impact of closeout sales.

 

The loss from operations of our other brands wholesale increased primarily due to an 18.6 percentage point decrease in gross margin largely due to increased inventory write-downs and an increased impact of closeout sales.  As we are ceasing distribution of the

Simple brand, we experienced negative margins on Simple brand closeout sales and also recorded additional inventory write-downs.  These results were partially offset by the increased sales and decreased divisional expenses.

 

Loss from operations of our eCommerce business increased slightly.

 

The increase in loss from operations of our retail store business was primarily due to approximately $6,000 of higher operating expenses primarily related to our new store openings.  These results were partially offset by increased sales and a 0.6 percentage point increase in gross margin.

 

The increase in unallocated overhead costs resulted most significantly from an increase of approximately $3,000 related to international infrastructure costs primarily to support our conversions from distributor models to direct wholesale models, as well as increased legal expenses of approximately $2,000 primarily related to the protection of our intellectual property including our trademarks.

 

Other (Income) Expense, Net.  Interest expense decreased primarily due to the reversal of a prior year income tax related accrual.  Other income, net decreased primarily due to a one-time foreign sales tax exemption recognized in the prior year.

 

Income Taxes. Income taxes for the interim periods are computed using the effective tax rate estimated to be applicable for the full fiscal year, which is subject to ongoing review and evaluation by management and can vary from quarter to quarter. Income tax (benefit) expense and effective income tax rates were as follows:

The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the increase in our projected annual foreign pre-tax income as a percentage of worldwide pre-tax income, as income generated in the US is taxed at significantly higher rates than most of our foreign jurisdictions.  We anticipate our effective tax rate for the full year 2011 to be significantly lower than the full year rate of 35.9% in 2010.

 

Net Loss Attributable to the Noncontrolling Interest.  Net loss attributable to the noncontrolling interest in our joint venture with Stella International was $189 and $56 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

 

Net (Loss) Income Attributable to Deckers Outdoor Corporation.  We incurred a net loss versus income as a result of the items discussed above.  The change in diluted net (loss) income per share resulted primarily from the change in net (loss) income for the three months ended June 30, 2011 versus 2010.

Overview.  The increase in net sales was primarily due to an increase in UGG product sales, as well as an increase in Teva product sales.  The decrease in income from operations resulted from higher SG&A expenses as well as a slightly lower gross margin, partially offset by the higher sales.

The increase in net sales was primarily driven by strong sales for the UGG and Teva brands.  We experienced an increase in the number of pairs sold primarily through our Teva wholesale and retail channels, partially offset by a decrease in pairs sold in our other brands.  This resulted in a 9.2% overall increase in the volume of footwear sold for all brands to approximately 8.3 million pairs for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to approximately 7.6 million pairs for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  Our weighted-average wholesale selling price per pair increased to $35.94 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from $32.97 for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

 

Wholesale net sales of our UGG brand increased primarily due to an increase in the average selling price, which was partially a result of decreased closeout sales.  The increase was partially offset by a shift in sales in our European region for our fall products to later in the year in 2011 versus 2010.  This shift was related to our conversion from a distributor model to a direct wholesale model.  We cannot assure investors that UGG brand sales will continue to grow at their past pace.

 

Wholesale net sales of our Teva brand increased due to both an increase in the volume of pairs sold, as well as an increase in the average selling price.

 

Wholesale net sales of our other brands decreased due to a decrease in pairs sold, partially offset by an increase in the average selling price.

Net sales of our eCommerce business increased due to both an increase in the average selling price and an increase in the number of pairs sold.

 

Net sales of our retail store business, which are primarily UGG brand sales, increased largely due to the addition of eleven new stores opened since June 30, 2010.  New stores that were not open during the full six months ended June 30, 2010 contributed approximately $19,000 of retail sales for six months ended June 30, 2011.  We do not expect this growth rate to continue because as we increase the number of our stores, each new store will have less proportional impact on our growth rate.  For those stores that were open during the full six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, same store sales grew by 8.9%.  Nevertheless, we cannot assure investors that retail store sales will continue to grow at their recent pace or that revenue from our retail store business will not at some point decline.

 

International sales, which are included in the segment sales above, for all of our products combined represented 35.7% and 37.8% of worldwide net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The reduced percentage of worldwide sales was attributed primarily to a larger increase of domestic sales than international sales.  The international sales growth in absolute dollars was led by the Teva and UGG brands in the European region.

 

Gross Profit.  As a percentage of net sales, gross margin decreased primarily due to approximately $5,500 of duty refunds in the first half of 2010 that did not recur in the first half of 2011, as well as an increased impact of closeout sales and increased inventory write-downs, primarily related to our Simple brand.  The decrease in gross margin was partially offset by an increased mix of retail sales, which generally carry higher margins, as we capture the full retail margin versus a distributor or wholesale margin.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (SG&A).  As a percentage of net sales, SG&A increased primarily due to:

 

·                  increased retail costs of approximately $12,000 largely related to eleven new retail stores that were not open as of June 30, 2010;

·                  increased international division expenses of approximately $8,000 in support of our international expansion and our distributor conversions to the wholesale model;

·                  increased divisional brand expenses of approximately $6,000 in support of our growth; and

·                  increased marketing expenses of approximately $6,000 primarily related to our UGG brand.

 

SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales were unusually high during this period primarily due to the items discussed above as well as our first half of the year generally being our lowest volume selling season.  However, we expect SG&A as a percentage of sales for the full year 2011 to be closer to that of the full year 2010.

 

Income from Operations.  The gross profit derived from the sales to third parties of the eCommerce and retail store segments is separated into two components:  (i) the wholesale profit is included in the related operating income or loss of each wholesale segment, and (ii) the remaining profit is included in the eCommerce and retail stores segments.  The following table summarizes operating income (loss) by segment:

Income from operations decreased due to the higher SG&A expenses and lower gross margin, partially offset by the increase in sales.

 

The decrease in income from operations of UGG brand wholesale was primarily the result of higher marketing and promotional expenses, higher amortization expenses primarily related to order books we acquired from our distributor conversions in Europe, and increased sales commissions totaling approximately $12,000.  These decreases to income were partially offset by the increase in net sales.

 

The increase in income from operations of Teva brand wholesale was largely due to increased sales and decreased amortization of approximately $2,000, partially offset by a 1.5 percentage point decrease in gross margin, primarily due to higher inventory write-

downs and an increased impact of closeout sales.  In addition, we recognized increased divisional sales expenses and increased marketing and promotional expenses totaling approximately $3,000.

 

The loss from operations of our other brands wholesale increased primarily due to a 14.0 percentage point decrease in gross margin as well as the decreased sales.  We recognized increased inventory write-downs, primarily related to the Simple brand, as well as negative margins on Simple brand closeout sales.

 

Income from operations of our eCommerce business increased primarily due to the increased sales, partially offset by an increase in total expenses of approximately $2,000.

 

The slight increase in income from operations of our retail store business was primarily due to increased sales as well as a 0.5 percentage point increase in gross margin.  The increase was partially offset by approximately $11,000 of higher operating expenses primarily related to our new store openings.

 

The increase in unallocated overhead costs resulted most significantly from an increase of approximately $8,000 related to international infrastructure costs primarily to support our conversions from distributor models to direct wholesale models, as well as increased legal expenses of approximately $5,000 primarily related to the protection of our intellectual property including our trademarks.

 

Other (Income) Expense, Net.  Other income, net decreased primarily due to a one-time foreign sales tax exemption recognized in the prior year, partially offset by negative interest expense in the current year resulting from a reversal of a prior year income tax related accrual.

 

Income Taxes. Income taxes for the interim periods are computed using the effective tax rate estimated to be applicable for the full fiscal year, which is subject to ongoing review and evaluation by management and can vary from quarter to quarter. Income tax expense and effective income tax rates were as follows:

The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the increase in our projected annual international pre-tax income as a percentage of worldwide pre-tax income, as income generated in the US is taxed at significantly higher rates than most of our foreign jurisdictions.  We anticipate our effective tax rate for the full year 2011 to be significantly lower than the full year rate of 35.9% in 2010.

 

Net Income Attributable to the Noncontrolling Interest.  Net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest in our joint venture with Stella International was $466 and $189 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

 

Net Income Attributable to Deckers Outdoor Corporation.  Our net income decreased as a result of the items discussed above.  Our diluted earnings per share decreased by 56.5% to $0.30 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $0.69 in the same period of 2010, primarily as a result of the decrease in net income.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have off-balance sheet arrangements consisting of operating lease obligations and purchase obligations.  See “Contractual Obligations” below.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We finance our working capital and operating needs using a combination of our cash and cash equivalents balances, cash generated from operations and, as needed, the credit available under our credit agreement. In an economic recession or under other adverse economic conditions, we may be unable to realize a return on our cash and cash equivalents, secure additional credit on favorable terms, or renew or access our existing credit. Such failures may impact our working capital reserves and have a material adverse effect on our business.

Our cash flow cycle includes the purchase of inventories, the subsequent sale of the inventories, and the eventual collection of the resulting accounts receivables. As a result, our working capital requirements begin when we purchase the inventories and continue until we ultimately collect the resulting receivables. The seasonality of our UGG brand business requires us to build fall and winter inventories in the second and third quarters to support sales for the UGG brand’s major selling seasons, which historically occur during the third and fourth quarters; whereas, the Teva brand generally begins to build its inventory levels beginning in the fourth and first quarters in anticipation of the spring selling season that occurs in the first and second quarters.  Given the seasonality of our UGG and Teva brands, our working capital requirements fluctuate significantly throughout the year. The cash required to fund these working capital fluctuations has been provided using our internal cash flows. If necessary, we may borrow funds under our credit agreement.  During 2010 and the six months ended June 30, 2011, we did not borrow funds under our credit agreement.

Cash from Operating Activities.  We recognized net cash used in operating activities versus net cash provided by operating activities in the six months ended June 30, 2011 versus 2010.  The decreased cash from operating activities was primarily due to inventories increasing more in the six months ended June 30, 2011 versus 2010, an income tax receivable in 2011 that we did not recognize in the prior year period, and accrued expenses decreasing more in the six months ended June 30, 2011 versus 2010. The larger increase in inventories was primarily due to higher projected sales in the second half of 2011 versus 2010, increased international inventory, and eleven new retail stores.  The income tax receivable was partially related to our net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  The larger decrease in accrued expenses was primarily due to a higher accrued payroll payment related to our increased company performance in 2010 versus 2009.  These changes were partially offset by trade accounts receivable decreasing in the six months ended June 30, 2011 versus increasing in the six months ended June 30, 2010. The decrease in trade accounts receivable was primarily due to increased cash c
