Iconix lowers guidance
September 30, 2009,
New York – Iconix Brand Group, owners of Royal Velvet as well as several home and apparel brands, today lowered its fiscal year guidance.
Earnings per share are now projected at $1.17 to $1.22. Previously, it was $1.30 to $1.35. Income was impacted by a June equity offering as well as shifting the Rocawear women’s license to a new licensee, the company said.
“While we are disappointed that the strong performance of our brands has not been enough to completely offset the dilution from the equity offering and Rocawear women's transition, we believe our company is well positioned for future growth,” said Neil Cole, chairman and ceo. “Further, we currently have over $230 million of cash on our balance sheet and have the ability to execute on possible future acquisitions, however, we will continue to remain disciplined when pursuing potential opportunities."
Iconix’s other home brands include Cannon, Fieldcrest, Charisma, Waverly, Candie’s and Joe Boxer.
