July 29, 2014,
NEW YORK-A sharp rise in interest expense and an increased provision for income taxes reduced Iconix Brand Group's second-quarter net income by 8.8 percent, to $35.3 million.
Interest and other expenses rose 58.5 percent in the quarter, which ended on June 30. Iconix also raised its provision for income taxes by 11.3 percent.
Both of these items offset a 3.3 percent gain in licensing revenue, which totaled a record $118.9 million. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 1.6 percent in dollars but were down 64 basis points as a percentage of sales, to 37.2 percent.
Based on the second quarter, Iconix said it believes its annual revenue for this year will total between $455 million and $465 million.
