For the full year 2012, the Company recorded a loss from continuing operations of ($59) million, or ($0.54) per share, compared to income from continuing operations for the full year 2011 of $145 million, or $1.28 per share.

William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer of Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc., said: "Adjusted EBITDA, net of foreign currency transaction adjustments, was $69 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $106 million for the full year 2012, slightly above the range of $100 to $105 million provided in our January 14th pre-announcement."

Mr. McComb concluded, "2012 brought industry leading growth at kate spade and a significant improvement in performance at Lucky Brand.  While progress in these two businesses was tempered by a miss in North America at Juicy Couture, we are optimistic that we are correcting the underlying issues at Juicy under the direction of its new CEO, Paul Blum.

“Our teams are all very focused on delivering their 2013 plans, as we begin the year with the right momentum. For fiscal 2013, we continue to forecast adjusted EBITDA, net of foreign currency transaction adjustments, in the range of $120 to $150 million."
