Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc. announced financial results for its fiscal 2010 fourth quarter and year ended July 31, 2010.

Thomas Lynch, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We have made significant improvements to our business throughout fiscal 2010. This has included advancing our strategy to become a sexy lifestyle brand and a focus on web-based initiatives to increase online sales. We also have strengthened our balance sheet, setting a clear path for the Company's future growth.

"In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, we entered into four separate multi-year licensing agreements with licensees to manufacture, distribute and market swimwear, sexy Halloween costumes, jewelry and accessories under the Frederick's of Hollywood® brand. These agreements have effectively launched our licensing program and are leading the way for Frederick's of Hollywood to become a comprehensive lifestyle brand for sexy women. Each agreement will ramp up separately over the next year and generate new, higher margin revenue compared to our traditional retail and direct to consumer operations."
