For the third quarter of 2018, total revenue was $46.2 million, a 13% decline as compared to $53.2 million in the prior year quarter. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, total revenue was $145.0 million, a 16% decline as compared to $173.5 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.  Such decline was expected, principally as a result of the transition of our Danskin, OP and Mossimo DTR's in our Womens segment, as previously announced.

Our Mens segment declined in the third quarter of 2018 primarily from the Starter and Buffalo brands.  Our International segment provided organic growth primarily from the Umbro and Lee Cooper brands, specifically in the Europe, India and China territories.  The Home segment declined 6% and 9% for the third quarter of 2018 and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. As previously discussed, revenue in the Home segment year-over-year is partially down due to the terms of a renewal of the Waverly Inspirations contract with Walmart.

In the first quarter of 2018, the Company adopted a new revenue recognition accounting standard (ASU No. 2014-09 Revenue from Contracts with Customers – Topic 606). Adoption of the standard increased Q3 2018 revenue by approximately $2.4 million and increased revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 by approximately $0.6 million, and is expected to increase full-year 2018 revenue by approximately $2.5 to $3.0 million.

SG&A Expenses:

Total SG&A expenses in the third quarter of 2018 were $30.2 million, a 40% increase compared to $21.5 million in the third quarter of 2017. Included in these expenses was an $8.2 million bad debt expense as a result of the Sears bankruptcy filing.  Excluding this bad debt expense, SG&A expenses were up 2% in the third quarter of 2018 as compared to the third quarter of 2017.  In the third quarter of 2018, advertising expense increased 56% as compared to the third quarter of 2017 as result of increases in marketing spend for the Buffalo, Starter and Umbro brands.  Stock based compensation was a benefit of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2018 as compared to a benefit of $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Trademark and Goodwill Impairment:

In the third quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a non-cash trademark impairment charge of $4.4 million in the Womens segment related to a write-down in the Joe Boxer trademark as compared to $521.7 million in the third quarter of 2017, comprised of $227.6 million in the Womens segment, $135.9 million in the Mens segment, $69.5 million in the Home segment and $88.7 million in the International segment, to reduce various trademarks in those segments to fair value.  The Company also recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $103.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 due to impairment of goodwill in the Womens segment, Mens segment and Home segment of $73.9 million, $1.5 million and $28.4 million, respectively, of which there was no comparable amount in the third quarter of 2018.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2018 was $12.1 million, as compared to operating loss of $595.9 million in the third quarter of 2017.  Operating income in the third quarter of 2018 included trademark impairments of $4.4 million and special charges of $1.8 million.  Operating loss in the third quarter of 2017 included trademark and goodwill impairments of $625.5 million, special charges of $2.4 million, a loss on termination of licenses of $2.8 million and gain on sale of trademarks of $0.9 million.  When excluding these items, adjusted operating income was $18.3 million and $33.9 million in the third quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2017, respectively, and adjusted operating margin was 40% and 64% in the third quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2017, respectively.  Operating loss in the third quarter of 2018 includes a $8.2 million bad debt expense as a result of the Sears bankruptcy filing.

Operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $66.9 million, as compared to operating loss of $546.4 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.  Operating loss in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 included goodwill and trademark impairments of $115.5 million, special charges of $7.2 million, costs associated with recent debt financings of $8.3 million, a loss on termination of licenses of $5.7 million and gain on sale of trademarks of $1.3 million.  Operating loss in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 included goodwill and trademark impairments of $625.5 million, special charges of $7.1 million, loss on termination of licenses of $26.0 million, a gain on sale of trademarks of $0.9 million, and a gain on deconsolidation of joint venture of $3.8 million.  When excluding these items, adjusted operating income was $68.5 million and $107.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively, and adjusted operating margin was 47% and 62%, respectively. 

Interest Expense, Other Income and Loss on extinguishment of debt:

Interest expense in the third quarter of 2018 was $14.9 million, as compared to interest expense of $16.9 million in the third quarter of 2017.

In the third quarter of 2018, the Company recognized a $17.2 million gain resulting 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 current period's income statement.  Additionally, in the third quarter of 2018, the Company acquired an additional 5% interest of its Iconix Australia joint venture and as a result, recognized a $8.4 million pre-tax non-cash gain on the remeasurement of the Company's initial investment.  In the third quarter of 2017, the Company recognized a $2.7 million gain related to a payment received from the sale of its minority interest in Complex Media in 2016 and recognized a $1.5 million expense related to the repurchase of a portion of the Company's 1.50% convertible notes, of which there was no comparable amount for the third quarter of 2018.  The Company has excluded these amounts from its non-GAAP results. 

Provision for Income Taxes:

The effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2018 is approximately 4.5% which resulted in a $1.0 million income tax provision, as compared to an effective income tax rate of 4.9% in the prior year quarter which resulted in a $29.6 million income tax benefit.  Excluding any mark-to-market adjustments from the Company's 5.75% Convertible Notes, we expect the full year 2018 tax rate to be approximately (4)% and approximately 50% on a GAAP basis and non-GAAP basis, respectively.

GAAP Net Income and GAAP Diluted EPS:

GAAP net loss from continuing operations attributable to Iconix for the third quarter of 2018 reflects income of $20.2 million as compared to a loss of $550.6 million for the third quarter of 2017. GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2018 reflects a loss of $0.01 as compared to a loss of $9.64 for the third quarter of 2017.

GAAP net loss from continuing operations attributable to Iconix for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 reflects a loss of $31.4 million as compared to a loss of $559.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.  GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 reflects a loss of $0.81 as compared to a loss of $9.83 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Diluted EPS:

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.2 million as compared to $13.9 million for the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $0.02 as compared to $0.24 for the third quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $15.0 million as compared to $41.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.  Non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $0.23 as compared to $0.73 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

2018 Guidance:

Primarily as a result of the Sears Holdings Corporation bankruptcy filing on October 15, 2018, the Company is lowering full year guidance as follows:

  • Full year revenue guidance lowered to $185 million - $195 million, down from $190 million to $220 million.
  • GAAP net income guidance lowered to a loss of approximately $105 million - $115 million, from $94.4 million to $104.4 million.
  • Full year non-GAAP net income guidance lowered to $5 million - $15 million, down from $20 million to $30 million
  • Full year free cash flow guidance lowered to $40 million - $50 million, down from $50 million to $70 million 

It should be noted that GAAP net income will be affected by non-cash adjustments to fair value from the Company's 5.75% Convertible Notes as discussed below. Such periodic adjustments to fair value cannot be estimated in advance and thus are not taken into account in guidance.

Non-GAAP net income and free cash flow are non-GAAP metrics, and reconciliation tables for each are included in this press release.

*- During the second quarter of 2018, the Company elected to treat its Luxembourg top tier subsidiary ("Luxco") as a disregarded entity for US tax purposes. As of the election date, all the foreign operations under LuxCo will be treated as a branch for US tax purposes and subject to US taxation. As such, the Company will no longer have any earnings in foreign subsidiaries that are not currently subject to taxation for US purposes. Before the election, the Company was indefinitely reinvested in all earnings in its foreign subsidiaries.


**- The Company's Senior Secured Notes include a test that measures the amount of principal and interest required to be paid on the debt to the approximate cash flow available to pay such principal and interest; the test is referred to as the debt service coverage ratio ("DSCR").  As a result of a decline in royalty collections during the twelve months ended June 30, 2018, the DSCR fell below 1.45x as of June 30, 2018.  Beginning July 1, 2018, we are required to allocate 25% of residual royalty collections (i.e. collections less debt service, management, servicing, administrative and other fees) to a restricted reserve account administered by the securitization program's trustee, which will result in cash remaining inside the securitization program.  Beginning October 1, 2018, the Co-Issuers are required to allocate 50% of residual royalty collections (i.e. collections less debt service, management, servicing, administrative and other fees) to a restricted reserve account administered by the securitization program's trustee, which will result in cash remaining inside the securitization program and not being distributed to the Company.  The cash required to be maintained inside the securitization program may be released to the Company if the DSCR is at least 1.45x for two consecutive quarters.

 

The Company currently projects compliance with all debt covenants.

Free Cash Flow:

The Company generated $6.6 million of free cash flow in the third quarter of 2018, a 361% increase as compared to $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2017.

The Company generated $38.0 million of free cash flow in the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a 18% decrease as compared to $46.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Footnotes

(1) Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents operating income excluding non-cash impairment charges, non-recurring gains and charges, and charges related to professional fees incurred as a result of the correspondence with the Staff of the SEC, the SEC investigation, internal investigations, the previously disclosed class action and derivative litigations, and costs related to the transition of Iconix management. The Company believes these are useful financial measures in evaluating its financial condition because they are more reflective of the Company's business purpose, operations and cash expenses.

(2) Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS (along with non-GAAP weighted average diluted shares) are non-GAAP financial measures which represent net income excluding any non-cash interest related to ASC Topic 470, non-cash, non-recurring gains and charges, foreign currency translation gains and losses, and charges related to professional fees incurred as a result of the correspondence with the Staff of the SEC, the SEC investigation, internal investigations, the previously disclosed class action and derivative litigations, and costs related to the transition of Iconix management, all net of tax. The Company believes these are useful financial measures in evaluating its financial condition because they are more reflective of the Company's business purpose, operations and cash expenses.

(3) Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, represents net cash provided by operating activities, plus cash received from the sale of trademarks and formation of joint ventures, less distributions to non-controlling interests and capital expenditures.  Free Cash Flow excludes notes receivable from sale of trademarks and the formation of joint ventures, cash used to acquire the membership interests of our joint venture partners, mandatory debt service requirements, and other non-discretionary expenditures. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation, as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to operating results presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes Free Cash Flow is useful because it provides information regarding actual cash received in a specific period from the Company's comprehensive business strategy of maximizing the value of its brands through traditional licensing, international joint ventures and other arrangements. We have excluded the cash used to buy back our joint venture membership interests from the above definition because we believe that, like other acquisitions, such actions are capital transactions. It also provides supplemental information to assist investors in evaluating the Company's financial condition and ability to pursue opportunities that enhance shareholder value.
