Neil Cole, Chairman and CEO of Iconix Brand Group, Inc. commented, "I am pleased with our strong 2008 performance and ability to continue to deliver year over year sales and earnings growth in what has been one of the most challenging economic environments in recent history. Our model has proven to be extremely relevant in today's market as we allow leading retailers to offer national brands at attractive economics.

In the past year we signed four new direct-to-retail licenses and renewed one, which we believe demonstrates the power of our brands and the value that we provide to our partners. Looking forward, we are excited about our prospects both domestically and internationally and believe we are well positioned to deliver continued earnings growth to our shareholders."
