Sequential Brands Group Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

Gary Klein, Sequential's CFO, added, "Our 2012 financial results reflect a company in transition with the associated costs of exiting a former business model in favor of a new business model. As we continue to execute our new strategy, we expect our financial metrics to improve as we focus on growing our existing brands, adding accretive new brand acquisitions to our portfolio and leveraging our base, which we view as a highly scalable platform."  

See reconciliation tables below for non-GAAP metrics. These non-GAAP metrics may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies and should only be used in conjunction with our results reported according to U.S. GAAP. Any financial measure other than those prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
