Neil Cole, Chairman and CEO of Iconix Brand Group Inc commented, "We are pleased to have delivered a strong performance in the first quarter of this year driven by the successful roll out of Op, Starter and Danskin Now at Walmart and our commitment to improving margins. We are encouraged by our growth prospects and believe we are making great progress internationally.

This morning we announced an investment in the Ed Hardy brand and we are also looking at some larger acquisition opportunities that we feel could be actionable this year. Based on our better than expected performance in the quarter and our 50% interest in Ed Hardy, we feel confident increasing our revenue and earnings guidance at this time and look forward to what should be an exciting year for our company."

The Company is raising its full year 2009 non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance to a range of $1.30 to $1.35 from $1.20 to $1.30, which excludes non-cash interest related to the adoption of the new accounting treatment for convertible debt.

The Company estimates that free cash flow for 2009 will be between $121 and $128 million. This guidance relates to the existing portfolio of brands only and assumes no acquisitions.
