We design, market and distribute premium products for hard core participants in action sports, motorsports, snow sports, cycling and multi-sports markets, which embrace their attendant lifestyle subcultures, crossing over into more mainstream fashion, music and entertainment markets. We believe a principal strength is our ability to create distinctive products for active people within the youthful demographics of these subcultures. Our principal products -- sunglasses, goggles and prescription frames -- are marketed under the SPY® brand. During 2011 and 2010, we also designed, manufactured and sold eyewear under the O'Neill®, Melodies by MJB® and Margaritaville® brands. In 2011, we decided to cease any new purchase orders of additional inventory for these licensed eyewear brands and do not expect any significant sales from these brands in the future.
