|About Cherokee Global Brands|
Cherokee Global Brands is a global marketer and manager of a portfolio of fashion and lifestyle brands it owns, licensing Cherokee, Hi-Tec, Magnum, 50 Peaks, Interceptor, Hawk Signature, Tony Hawk, Liz Lange, Completely Me by Liz Lange, Flip Flop Shops, Everyday California, Carole Little, Sideout and others, which are licensed in multiple consumer product categories and sectors. As part of our business strategy, we also regularly evaluate other brands and trademarks for acquisition into our portfolio. We believe the strength of our brand portfolio and platform of design, product sourcing and marketing capabilities has made us one of the leading global licensors of style-focused lifestyle brands for apparel, footwear, home products and accessories.
We have licensing relationships with recognizable retail partners in their global locations to provide them with the rights to design, manufacture and sell products bearing our brands, and we also have licensing relationships with manufacturers and distributors for the manufacture and sale of products bearing our brands. In addition, we have relationships with franchisees that operate Flip Flop Shops retail stores located worldwide. As a brand marketer and manager, we do not directly sell product ourselves. Rather, we earn royalties when our licensees and franchisees sell licensed products bearing the trademarks that we own.
We provide our licensees with access to our proprietary 360-degree platform and believe that our retail responsiveness process and 360-degree value proposition have allowed Cherokee Global Brands to address the growing power of the consumer and the present and future needs of the wholesalers and retailers that sell our portfolio of lifestyle brands. Based on consumer research, retail insights and brand insights that we continually measure, evaluate and incorporate into our 360-degree platform, we believe Cherokee Global Brands has become a key strategic partner to our licensees. We believe our licensing partners rely on our vision, which defines the growth potential and trajectories of our brands, the agility we afford to them through our 360-degree platform, which is designed to quickly seize opportunities and integrate new innovations, and the opportunity to realize global, multi-channel, multi-category scale through our portfolio of lifestyle brands and our platform capabilities. We have license agreements in approximately 80 countries, which include relationships with Walmart, Soriana, Comercial Mexicana, TJ Maxx, Tottus, Pick N Pay, Nishimatsuya, Big 5, Academy, JD Sports, Black’s and Lidl.
