Financial report summary

  • The Company may not generate sufficient cash in the next twelve months necessary to fund continue operations.
  • The terms of our debt agreements have restrictive covenants and our failure to comply with any of these could put us in default, which would have an adverse effect on our business and prospects, and could cause us to lose title to our key IP assets.
  • In the event of a default under our indebtedness under our Senior Secured Term Loan, which is not waived by our lenders thereunder, such lenders may be able to declare all of the indebtedness under such facilities, together with accrued interest, to be due and payable.
  • We are subject to risks associated with the discontinuation of LIBOR.
  • The market price of our common stock, which has traded with significant volatility in the past year, may continue to be volatile, which could reduce the market price of our common stock.
  • Future issuances of our common stock may cause the prevailing market price of our shares to decrease.
  • Future issuances of equity or convertible notes to raise additional needed capital may result in significant dilution to our stockholders.
  • We do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our common stock in the short term.
  • The failure of our licensees to adequately produce, market, import and sell products bearing our brand names in their license categories, continue their operations, renew their license agreements or pay their obligations under their license agreements could result in a decline in our results of operations.
  • A substantial portion of our licensing revenue is concentrated with a limited number of licensees, such that the loss of any of such licensees or their renewal on terms less favorable than today, could slow our growth plans, decrease our revenue and impair our cash flows.
  • We have a material amount of goodwill and other intangible assets, including our trademarks, recorded on our balance sheet. As a result of changes in market conditions and declines in the estimated fair value of these assets, we may, in the future, be required to further write down a portion of this goodwill and other intangible assets and such write-down would, as applicable, either decrease our net income or increase our net loss.
  • As a result of the intense competition within our licensees’ markets and the strength of some of their competitors, we and our licensees may not be able to continue to compete successfully.
  • Our business is dependent on continued market acceptance of our brands and the products of our licensees bearing these brands.
  • Our success is largely dependent on the continued service of our key personnel.
  • Changes in effective tax rates or adverse outcomes resulting from examination of our income or other tax returns could adversely affect our results.
  • We are subject to additional risks associated with our international licensees and joint ventures.
  • A portion of our revenue and net income are generated outside of the United States, by certain of our licensees and our joint ventures, in countries that may have volatile currencies, capital control regimes, legal prohibitions on enforcing payment terms in license agreements or other risks.
  • Our licensees are subject to risks and uncertainties of foreign manufacturing and importation of goods, and the price, availability and quality of raw materials, along with labor unrest at shipping/receiving ports, could interrupt their operations or increase their operating costs, thereby affecting their ability to deliver goods to the market, reduce or delay their sales and decrease our potential royalty revenue.
  • We participate in international joint ventures which we do not typically legally control.
  • We may incur losses as a result of unforeseen or catastrophic events, including the emergence of a pandemic, terrorist attacks, extreme weather events or other natural disasters.
  • A sale of our trademarks or other IP related to our brands in a jurisdiction could have a negative effect on the brands in other jurisdictions or worldwide.
  • Our failure to protect our proprietary rights could compromise our competitive position and result in cancellation, loss of rights or diminution in value of our brands.
  • Third-party claims regarding our intellectual property assets could result in our licensees being unable to continue using our trademarks, which could adversely impact our revenue or result in a judgment or monetary damages being levied against us or our licensees.
  • We may not be able to establish or maintain our trademark rights and registrations, which could impair our ability to perform our obligations under our license agreements, which could cause a decline in our licensees’ sales and potentially decrease the amount of royalty payments (over and above the guaranteed minimums) due to us.
  • We are subject to local laws and regulations in the U.S. and abroad.
  • We may be a party to litigation in the normal course of business, which could affect our financial position and liquidity.
  • While we audit our licensees from time to time in the ordinary course, we otherwise rely on the accuracy of our licensees’ retail sales reports for reporting and collecting our revenues, and if these reports are untimely or incorrect, our revenue could be delayed or inaccurately reported.
  • A decline in general economic conditions or an increase in inflation resulting in a decrease in consumer-spending levels and an inability to access capital may adversely affect our business.
  • A significant disruption in our computer systems, including from a malicious attack, and our inability to adequately maintain and update those systems, could adversely affect our operations.
  • Provisions in our charter and Delaware law could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire us, discourage a takeover and adversely affect our stockholders.
  • Use of social media may adversely impact our reputation and business.
  • Recent and ongoing developments relating to the United Kingdom’s leaving the European Union could adversely affect us or our licenses.
