V.F. Corporation Research Report

In January, VF and Altamount submitted a joint letter of interest to acquire
the Australia-based Billabong for AU$1.10 per share in cash. Billabong, on the
other hand, agreed to allow both companies to conduct due diligence to
evaluate its business. The primary interest of VF is in the Billabong brand,
noting that it is consistent with the interested company's intent to pursue
acquisitions, particularly in the Action Sports category, to continue to build
shareholder value. The acquisition provides an opportunity for the company to
expand and identify new platforms to support long-term growth, in line with
what it has projected for its 2013 guidance. The current year's revenue is
expected to increase six percent, and adjusted EPS expected to grow 11 percent
to $10.70. The Full Research Report on V.F. Corporation - including full
