In 2003, the company transitioned into a brand management company focused solely on the licensing and marketing of its brands and away from the direct design, manufacture, marketing and sale of branded merchandise. By mid-2004, the company had licensed out all of its footwear and jeanswear operations and eliminated its entire retail and manufacturing operations and embarked on its strategy of owning, licensing and managing a broad and diversified portfolio of consumer brands.

On January 1, 2005, Iconix Brand Group changed its fiscal year to a calendar year that begins on January 1 and on December 31. Previously, its fiscal year ended on January 31. The change was designed to align the company's financial reporting with that of its licensees.
