Neil Cole, Chairman and CEO of Iconix Brand Group, Inc. commented, "2011 is off to a strong start and I am pleased to announce that we achieved better than expected revenue and earnings in the first quarter. Our outperformance was driven by strength across our portfolio of brands, most notably our direct-to-retail brands, which continue to gain shelf space.

“We are making progress internationally and are particularly excited about the opportunity in China as our partners open hundreds of stores for our brands. We also expect to continue to be acquisitive and we announced that we are acquiring the worldwide rights for the Ed Hardy brand, which now puts us in complete control for the licensing and marketing of this brand. Looking ahead, we believe we are well positioned for continued growth as we expand our brands both in the U.S. and internationally, and acquire additional iconic brands."

To reflect the better than expected first quarter results and the Ed Hardy transaction, the Company is increasing its full year 2011 revenue guidance to a range of $355-$365 million from $340-$350 million.

This guidance relates to the existing portfolio of brands only including the increased ownership of Ed Hardy, excludes any non-cash gains relating to this transaction and assumes no additional acquisitions.
