Iconix said it expects The Sharper Image brand to generate about $12 million to $13 million in annual royalty revenue.

Iconix bought The Sharper Image brand from a group of investors including private equity firm Hilco Consumer Capital and liquidation firm Gordon Brothers. The Sharper Image retail chain filed for bankruptcy in February 2008, liquidating its remaining stores that June when it sold its brand and intellectual property assets to the investor group for $49 million.

Iconix separately said it will buy back up to $200 million of its common stock over the next four years, replacing a plan that was set to expire Oct. 30. The New York company has about 73.5 million shares outstanding.
