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."
