Ryan Drexler Wants Quiksilver Sold!

“There is no indication of any creative effort in terms of fashion design or advertising and marketing,” Mr. Drexler said in his letter dated March 9. “Given the emerging accounting and legal problems, declining consumer demand and lack of creativity…I cannot see a reason to place faith in the current management’s turnaround plan. In my opinion, the promise of better times being just around the corner is nothing more than wishful thinking.

I again urge you and the Board to unlock the value of the company’s well known brand names, global retail and wholesale presence and supply chain by exploring a sale of the company to maximize shareholder value consistent with the board’s fiduciary obligations.” – Ryan Drexler
