Iconix Brand Group’s licensing revenues – including the recently acquired Roca Wear and Danskin brands – climbed by 131.6 percent to $30.8 million in the 1st quarter ended March 31. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) jumped to $23.3 million, as compared to $8.4 million in the year-ago period. Net income grew to $12.7 million, compared with $7.4 million. Iconix now owns 11 brands that should generate about $5 billion in annual retail sales this year through 150 licensees throughout the world. The Roca Wear and Danskin brands accumulate roughly $60 million in royalty revenues annually. Danskin Now, a diffusion brand of Danskin sold at Wal-Mart, is expected to generate more than $10 million in royalties in its first year. Iconix is maintaining revenue guidance of $150-160 million for the full year. This figure assumes that the company will make no further acquisitions in 2007, yet Iconix says it intends to «remain acquisitive.»
