Iconix Brand Group to raise $325mn via private offering

Iconix Brand Group, Inc. announced that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $325 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2018 (the "notes") in a private offering. The notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). Iconix also expects to grant to the initial purchaser of the notes a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $50 million aggregate principal amount of notes, solely to cover over-allotments, if any.

Iconix expects to use the net proceeds from the offering of the notes (i) to fund the repurchase of up to $75 million of its common stock in privately negotiated transactions through the initial purchaser conducted contemporaneously with the pricing of the notes, (ii) to fund the net cost of a convertible note hedge transaction and a warrant transaction with a hedge counterparty, as described below, and (iii) for general corporate purposes, which may include investing in or acquiring new brands through opportunistic transactions and strategic relationships and additional share repurchases.  Since January 1, 2013, Iconix has repurchased approximately 2.6 million shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $62.0 million.

The notes will mature on March 15, 2018.  Prior to December 15, 2017, the notes will be convertible only upon the occurrence of certain events and during certain periods, and thereafter, at any time until the business day preceding the maturity date of the notes. Upon any conversion, Iconix's conversion obligation will be settled in cash up to the principal amount and, to the extent of any excess over the principal amount, in shares of Iconix common stock, or, if Iconix so elects, cash. The interest rate on, and the conversion rate of, the notes will be determined by negotiations between Iconix and the initial purchaser of the notes.

In connection with the offering of the notes, Iconix expects to enter into a privately negotiated convertible note hedge transaction with an affiliate of the initial purchaser of the notes (the "hedge counterparty"). The convertible note hedge transaction is expected to cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of Iconix common stock that will initially underlie the notes. Iconix also expects to enter into a separate privately negotiated warrant transaction with the hedge counterparty relating to the same number of shares of Iconix common stock.

In addition, if the initial purchaser exercises its over-allotment option to purchase additional notes, Iconix expects to sell additional warrants and to use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the additional notes and from the sale of the corresponding additional warrants to enter into an additional convertible note hedge transaction. The convertible note hedge transaction is expected to reduce the potential dilution with respect to Iconix common stock upon conversion of the notes. However, the warrant transaction will have a dilutive effect with respect to Iconix common stock to the extent that the market price per share of Iconix common stock exceeds the applicable strike price of the warrants on any expiration date of the warrants.
