To our Stockholders:
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Volcom, Inc. will be held at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time, on May 6, 2008, at the Volcom Roadhouse, 1660 Placentia Avenue, Costa Mesa, California, 92627, for the following purposes:
1. To elect seven directors for the ensuing year or until the election and qualification of their respective successors;
2. To ratify the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2008; and
3. To transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting or any postponement or adjournment thereof.
Only stockholders of record of shares of our common stock at the close of business on March 10, 2008, the record date, will be entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the 2008 annual meeting and any postponement or adjournment thereof.
We invite all stockholders to attend the annual meeting. Whether or not you plan to attend, it is important that your shares be represented and voted at the meeting. You can vote your shares by completing and returning the enclosed proxy card. If your shares are held in street name, your shares are held in the name of a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee and in lieu of a proxy card you should receive from that institution an instruction form for voting by mail and you may also be eligible to vote your shares electronically via the internet or telephone. Should you receive more than one proxy card or voting instruction form because your shares are held in multiple accounts or registered in different names or addresses, please sign, date and return each proxy card or voting instruction form to ensure that all of your shares are voted. For information regarding voting in person at the annual meeting, please see How do I vote? on page 2 of the proxy statement.
For admission to the annual meeting, each stockholder may be asked to present valid picture identification, such as a drivers license or passport, and proof of ownership of Volcom stock as of the record date, such as the enclosed proxy card or a brokerage statement reflecting stock ownership as of the record date.
By Order of the board of directors,
