Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

GAAP Revenue by Segment
(000’s)

  For the Three Months
Ended September 30,
 For the Nine Months
Ended September 30,
   2020  2019  2020  2019
Licensing revenue:        
Women's $5,919 $10,317 $16,805 $26,855
Men's  5,705  7,942  15,419  25,491
Home  3,487  3,430  10,436  11,205
International  9,351  13,782  32,028  42,255
  $24,462 $35,471 $74,688 $105,806

For the third quarter of 2020, total revenue was $24.5 million, a 31% decline, compared to $35.5 million in the third quarter of 2019. Revenue across all segments was primarily negatively impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy. The 43% decrease in revenue in our Women’s segment was principally as a result of a decrease in licensing revenue from our Mudd and Joe Boxer brands. Revenue from the Men’s segment decreased 28% mainly due to a decrease in licensing revenue from our Buffalo and Umbro brands. Sales in our Home segment improved by 2% principally due to an increase in licensing revenue from our Charisma brand. Our International segment revenue declined 32% mainly due to decreases in Latin America and Europe.

SG&A Expenses:
Total SG&A expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were $9.9 million, a 62% decline compared to $26.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. The decline for the quarter was primarily driven by a decrease in professional fees, advertising costs and compensation expense.

Gain on Sale of Trademarks
Gain on sale of trademarks reflect the $59.6 million gain of the sale of 100% of our interest in Umbro China Ltd., and $14.5 million gain on sale of Starter China Ltd., each completed during the third quarter of 2020.

Trademark and Investment Impairment:
In the third quarter of 2020, the Company recorded a non-cash trademark impairment charge of $4.8 million. The charge for the third quarter of 2020 was based on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on current and estimated future cash flows on the fair value of the Pony and Hydraulic indefinite-lived trademarks. The Company recorded investment impairments of $17.1 million in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of from exiting our Ecko Mark/Ecko joint venture in China and a reduction in the fair value of our Candies joint venture in China. The Company recorded investment impairment in the third quarter of 2019 of $17.0 million related to the sale of its equity investment in Marcy Media.

Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA (1):

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP metric, and a reconciliation table is included below.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2020 was $66.4 million, as compared to operating loss of $8.1 million for the third quarter of 2019.  The third quarter 2020 results include $22.0 million of charges related to impairments and $74.1 million in gains on sale of trademarks. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2020 was $13.7 million, which represents operating income of $66.4 million excluding net adjustments of $52.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2019 was $20.9 million, which represents operating loss of $8.1 million excluding net charges of $29.0 million. The change period over period in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily as a result of reduced revenue largely driven by the impact of COVID-19 on our business, somewhat offset by reduced expenses driven by the Company’s cost reduction initiative. Refer to footnote 1 below for a full detailed reconciliation of operating income to Adjusted EBITDA.      

Note: All items in the following tables are attributable to the Company’s interest in its subsidiaries and joint ventures, as applicable, and exclude the results related to any non-controlling interest in such entities. Certain numbers may not add due to rounding.

Adjusted EBITDA$13,714 $20,899  -34%  $36,750 $59,673  -38%
                     
Adjusted EBITDA Margin (2) 56% 59%      49% 56%   

Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 56% as compared to Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter of 2019 of 59%. The change period over period in Adjusted EBITDA margin is primarily as a result of the Company’s decrease in revenue.

Interest Expense and Other (Income) Loss, net:

Interest expense in the third quarter of 2020 was $18.5 million as compared to $14.4 million in the third quarter of 2019. The legal final maturity date of the Securitization Notes is in January of 2043. The Company did not repay or refinance the Securitization Notes prior to the anticipated repayment date. Therefore, beginning January 2020, the Company accrues additional interest on the Securitization Notes that is not payable until 2043. The increase in interest expense period over period is primarily the result of the step up in interest for the securitization. In the third quarter of 2020, Other (income) loss was income of $0.3 million as compared to a loss of $12.0 million in the third quarter of 2019. This result is primarily from the Company's accounting for the 5.75% Convertible Notes, which requires recording the fair value of this debt at the end of each period with any change from the prior period accounted for as other income or loss in the respective period's consolidated income statement.

Provision for Income Taxes:

The effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2020 is approximately 1.9%, which resulted in a $0.9 million income tax expense, as compared to an effective income tax rate of 1.7% in the third quarter of 2019, which resulted in a $0.6 million income tax benefit.  The increase in the tax expense is a result of expenses incurred for which no tax benefit was able to be recognized for the third quarter of 2020.

GAAP Net Income and GAAP Diluted EPS:

GAAP net income attributable to Iconix for the third quarter of 2020 reflected income of $45.7 million, compared to a net loss of $35.7 million for the third quarter of 2019. GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter of 2020 reflected income of $1.51 per share, compared to loss of $3.07 per share for the third quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA (1):

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2020 was $13.7 million, compared to $20.9 million for the third quarter of 2019.

*- The legal final maturity of the Securitization Notes is in January of 2043, as the Company did not repay or refinance the Securitization Notes prior to the anticipated repayment date. Therefore, beginning in January 2020, the Company is no longer required to make previously designated contractual principal payments. Future principal payments are formulaically based on a percentage of receipts of royalty revenue, and as such are subject to market factors outside of the Company’s control. There can be no assurance that all or any future principal payments projected for the Senior Secured Notes will be made in accordance with the projections provided. 
**- As a result of the completion of the sale of Starter China, the Company received $15.6 million of net proceeds, and on October 4, 2020, repaid $11.7 million of Senior Secured Term Loan principal not reflected above.

Footnotes

(1)   Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, which represents operating income excluding stock-based compensation (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, special charges related to potential settlement and professional fees incurred as a result of cooperation with the Staff of the SEC, the SEC and related SDNY investigations, internal investigations, the previously disclosed class action and derivative litigations and costs related to the transition of Iconix management. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial measure in evaluating its financial condition because it is more reflective of the Company's business purpose, operations and cash expenses. Uses of cash flows that are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA include interest payments and debt principal repayments, which can be significant. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of our liquidity. Other companies that provide Adjusted EBITDA information may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. The definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as the definitions used in any of our debt agreements.
