They fit perfectly with each other. CROX has 1.3 billion in revs with about $280 mill in net cash( cash-debt). DECK has 1.7 billion in revs with about $70 million in net cash. CROX is recovering nicely, just as DECK is, and immediately diversifies both of their lines into all seasons. Both companies are actively working to brouaden their product lines, and CROX at least is gaining lots of traction in that effort. 11 out of the top 100 shoes on Amazon are CROcs products.
I disagree. Crox's quality is nowhere near DECK. I'd rather have a comfortable sandal from DECK than some of the CROX clogs that exist. If anything, DECK needs to merge with Coach. More value and diversification for both.
No way!! Crox are a joke and a fad. Deckers meanwhile is anchored by UGG, a top notched company that is a category leader, been in business for over 30 years and not going away anytime soon....Crox and Ugg have NOTHING in common.
