Guru Investment Theses on Iconix Brand Group Inc

Zeke Ashton Comments on Iconix Group - Jul 06, 2016

As long‐time investors probably are aware, our strategy is highly flexible and from time to time we make investments in securities other than common stocks, most commonly convertible or high yield corporate bonds. In March the Fund purchased a modest position in a corporate bond issued by Iconix Group (NASDAQ:ICON), a company we are quite familiar with by virtue of having owned the common stock for two extended stretches in past years. Our track record on the equity is mixed: we made good money on it the first time we owned it as it de‐levered coming out of the 2008‐2009 crisis. The second time around we sold at a loss as the company re‐levered into the easy credit environment of 2014‐2015 and we became increasingly uncomfortable with the debt profile as well as other issues that we would consider to have been self‐inflicted by an overly aggressive management team. Iconix has since replaced its management, but entered the year needing to roll out a substantial amount of debt due to mature at mid‐year 2016. Though the company carries more debt than is healthy, the underlying business is in pretty good shape and the company generates substantial cash flow. We considered buying the stock, but despite a depressed price we elected to pass due to our long‐held aversion to owning equity when there is a large amount of debt in front of our ownership position. As we evaluated the credit structure, however, we found a risk/return profile we could get comfortable with and purchased junior bonds that are due to mature in early 2018. We bought the bonds at roughly 67 cents on the dollar in late March, at which time the annualized yield‐to‐maturity was in the mid‐20% range. Our purchase occurred immediately following the company’s announcement of a new five‐year credit agreement that would allow Iconix to repay its 2016 bonds, leaving the March 2018 bonds as the next issue in the maturity ladder. We believe these bonds are much safer than the purchase price would suggest, and we expect to hold the securities to maturity and collect the full par amount.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Iconix Brand Group - Apr 22, 2016

Iconix Brand Group (NASDAQ:ICON) is a brand management company and owner of a diversified portfolio of global consumer brands across entertainment, home segments and fashion for men and women. Over the trailing 12 months, Iconix’s share price fell in response to a change in senior management, an accounting restatement, an SEC review and disappointing operating results resulting in a reduction of revenue and cash flow guidance. These events led to additional worries over the ability to refinance near-term debt maturities. As a result, we exited the position.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Iconix Brand Group - Jan 22, 2016

Iconix Brand Group (NASDAQ:ICON) is a brand management company and owner of a diversified portfolio of global consumer brands across entertainment, home segments and women’s and men’s fashion. Iconix shares declined throughout the year as a litany of items, including a change in senior management, an accounting restatement, an ongoing SEC review and disappointing results from the Peanuts and men’s fashion brands resulted in a reduction of revenue and cash flow guidance for 2015 and 2016. We have talked to management about these issues and their plans to fund a $300 million convertible maturity in June of 2016. Iconix remains a small allocation as we continue to evaluate the newly appointed management team’s progress.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Iconix Brand Group - Nov 06, 2015

Iconix Brand Group (NASDAQ:ICON) is a brand management company and owner of a diversified portfolio of global consumer brands across women’s and men’s fashion, entertainment and home segments. Iconix has endured a complete change of senior management with the CFO, COO and CEO all leaving in the first half of the fiscal year. In addition, the company has had to adjust earnings expectations down, as continued disappointment in the men’s division and a shift in timing of revenue from the anticipated November launch of The Peanuts feature film made meeting original guidance difficult. We have revisited our key assumptions behind our Iconix investment and are comfortable that the underlying asset-lite, high margin, licensing business model remains intact. While investors have become nervous about the company’s high leverage, Iconix has minimum revenue guarantees from many of its licensees which provides a reliable stream of free cash flow. Our continued due diligence including conversations with interim CEO Peter Cuneo, who has extensive consumer product licensing experience, provides comfort that Iconix is headed in the right direction. We added to our position over the calendar year on price weakness.

Baron Funds Comments on Iconix Brands Group Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Iconix Brands Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ICON), the brand licensing company, fell on news that its COO and CFO were leaving the company, which was unsettling as the company’s accounting practices have been under scrutiny. We believe their departures are not reflective of anything amiss at the company. A new CFO has been subsequently hired. The stock now trades at a depressed multiple and growth prospects are bright based on new accretive acquisitions and the massive licensing program around the launch of the Peanuts movie later this fall, an important Iconix property.
