CINCINNATI, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP) has completed the sale of its character licensing business to Iconix Brand Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICON) for $175 million in cash. The sale price is subject to a post-closing adjustment for working capital.

United Media Licensing works with more than 1,250 licensees in approximately 40 countries. The majority of licensing revenue is generated by products associated with the characters of the Peanuts comic strip, which Scripps brought to market in 1950.

Scripps still owns United Media's syndication operation and will continue to syndicate comic strips and editorial features that are developed and marketed worldwide through United Feature Syndicate and Newspaper Enterprise Association.

A range of options is being considered for the after-tax proceeds from the sale. Making voluntary, tax-advantaged contributions to the company's defined benefit pension plans is among the top priorities.
