Quoting Management: “The second quarter was about taking the initial steps toward getting our house in order to drive positive, long-term transformation at Skullcandy,” stated Hoby Darling, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We had to reduce expenses and recalibrate our operating platform to better align with our current sales trajectory. Our decisive actions during the quarter allowed us to break even on the bottom line despite ongoing sales headwinds. With our product, marketing and sales teams now consolidated in Park City we are in a much better position to build momentum and establish Skullcandy as the world’s leading lifestyle and performance audio company driven by the creativity and irreverence of youth culture. I am excited about the future and I am confident that we are assembling the right team to successfully execute our strategic plan and deliver significant shareholder value.”
