All right. We're going to continue here at Goldman Sachs Retail Conference. I'm (Inaudible). I'll be covering the consumer small and mid-cap stocks at Goldman, and we're pleased to have Iconix with us at the conference today. We have, Neil Cole, CEO, with us, Yehuda Shmidman, COO; and also, Warren Clamen, CFO; and Jaime Sheinheit here with IR in the front row.
With that, I'm going to turn it over to Neil, and we're going to go through some of the presentation. After that, we'll breakout into Q&A.
Thank you. Good morning, everybody. I'm going to do, hopefully, a 10 to 15-minute just quick overview slide presentation, and then hopefully we have plenty of time for question and answers. On the cover you see here a lot of our brands and our latest campaigns with those brands.
For those of you that don't know us, we have a business model that's certainly unique. We believe it's a business model specialization, which one needs nowadays in this very competitive market.
On the left side is a tradition operating company that handles all aspects of marketing, licensing trend. We also have to do sales, sourcing, retail. Iconix is a very unique business model. In that, we handle the fun side of the business, which I call the fun part, the marketing, advertising, licensing and business development and we leave, what I call the heavy lifting, to our retail partners and we believe, as I tell you more, that we have the best-in-class in the world as far as operating retail partners.
