Outperforming analysts' estimates, Rocky Brands has reported a net profit of $1.4 million for its first quarter, double the level of the year-earlier period. However, revenues declined to $65.5 million from $65.8 million, despite a 30 percent increase for the Durango brand of shoes. The management feels that the drop was only temporary and partly due to the labor disputes at West Coast harbors, which lasted until mid-February. Another reason was the reorganization of Creative Recreation, the company acquired in December 2013, which is now doing well in the U.S. and abroad.
