Iconix Brand Group Inc announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2008 increased 29% to approximately $55.1 million, as compared to approximately $42.7 million in the third quarter of 2007. EBITDA for the third quarter increased 23% to approximately $37.9 million as compared to approximately $30.8 million in the prior year quarter, and free cash flow for the quarter increased 13% to approximately $31.5 million as compared to approximately $27.9 million in the prior year quarter.

Net income for the third quarter increased 8% to approximately $18.3 million, as compared to $17.0 million in the prior year quarter and GAAP diluted earnings per share increased to $0.30 versus $0.28 in the prior year quarter.

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 increased 44% to approximately $162.5 million as compared to approximately $112.6 million in the prior year nine month period. EBITDA for the nine month period increased 31% to approximately $111.8 million as compared to approximately $85.4 million in the prior year period, and free cash flow increased 22% to approximately $91.0 million as compared to approximately $74.8 million in the prior year period.

Net income for the nine month period increased 19% to approximately $53.0 million as compared to approximately $44.5 million in the prior year period and GAAP diluted earnings per share increased to $0.87 versus $0.73 in the prior year period.

Neil Cole, Chairman and CEO of Iconix Brand Group, Inc. commented, "Our strong performance in the third quarter demonstrates, more than ever, that our business model is extremely well suited to thrive in the current economic environment. Having a diversified portfolio of 17 iconic brands and partnerships with best in class retailers enables us to continue to deliver great results. In issuing 2009 guidance today, we are confident in our ability to grow sales and earnings next year and we are energized about our organic growth plans."

2008 Guidance: The Company expects to achieve its 2008 guidance for revenue of $215-220 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.15-$1.20, but is now guiding towards the low-end of the ranges. Free cash flow is projected to be in excess of $120 million.

The Company is issuing guidance for the full year 2009 of revenue in a range of $225-$235 million. The Company estimates non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $1.20-$1.30, excluding any non-cash interest related to the convertible debt. Free cash flow is estimated to be in a range of $114-$118 million. This guidance relates to the existing portfolio of brands only and includes no revenue assumption from acquisitions.

Beginning in 2009, GAAP will require the Company to record incremental non-cash interest related to our convertible debt for 2009 and 2008 for comparability purposes. The Company expects the impact of this change in accounting policy to be $0.14 for 2009 and $0.13 for 2008.
