Importantly, we enter 2018 better positioned to leverage our brand portfolio anchored on our strategic focus to actively manage brands with our existing partners, while exploring new opportunities to expand our reach. The launch of Starter with Amazon in 2017 and our recently announced multiyear agreement with Target for the Umbro brand demonstrates our ability to position our brands with the right long-term partners to maximize market presence and contribution to Iconix," said John Haugh, CEO of Iconix.

"With our near-term debt obligations satisfied today, we are now able to apply renewed attention to our business initiatives and lay the foundation for sustained, organic growth," Haugh added.

For 2018, the company expects revenue to be around $190-$220 million. The net income on GAAP basis is expected to be $7-$17 million, and $20-$30 million on a non-GAAP basis. The full year cash flow will be approximately $50-$70 million. (RR)
