Iconix posts 31 percent drop in Q2 sales

Iconix Brand Group, Inc., for the second quarter, reported total revenue of 34.4 million dollars, a 31 percent decline, compared to the second quarter of 2018. The company said, such decline was expected, principally as a result of the transition of Danskin and Mossimo direct to retail licenses in women’s segment, while revenue was also impacted by the effect of the Sears bankruptcy on Joe Boxer and Bongo brands in women’s and the Cannon brand in home. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, total revenue was 70.3 million dollars, a 29 percent decline compared to same period ended June 30, 2018.

Commenting on the second quarter results, Bob Galvin, the company’s CEO said in a statement: “Results for the second quarter of 2019 were as expected, as we continue to stabilize the business and our operational cost structure. Our focus on the business and costs helped to improve our EBITDA margin to 59 percent from 49 percent in the prior year quarter. We also continue to build the pipeline of our future business, as we have signed 111 deals year to date for aggregate guaranteed minimum royalties of approximately 79 million dollars.”
