Over the past few years, PLBY Group acquired Australian luxury lingerie brand, Honey Birdette, sexuall wellness chain, Lovers, and online intimates retailer, Yandy. Playboy ceased publication of the magazine in March 2020, and the Hefner family is no longer associated with Playboy in any way. Today’s reimagined Playboy has shifted to focus on consumer products and digital experiences and events. The company’s recent changes on the business side have really been focused on building out that full ecosystem of products and services, physical and digital, to give consumers a way to access and truly live a Playboy way of life. More specifically, the company is focused on two strategies: 1) Meeting robust consumer demand through the continued expansion of its direct-to-consumer business by further growing its owned and operated channels, realizing synergies between its brands and continuing the optimization of licensing; and 2) Continuing to advance its digital business through the full build-out of creator-led CENTERFOLD and its integration with its other platforms. About CENTERFOLD: Centerfold is Playboy’s new creator-led platform which launched in beta in late 2021. Centerfold’s potential to drive organic customer acquisition and serve as a massive top of funnel for Playboy products and services is more valuable than ever given the recent disruptive changes to iOS and privacy regulations. Playboy believes it will allow them to further target the marketing of its consumer products brands, its future NFT and blockchain initiatives, and its IRL and virtual events. As Centerfold continues to evolve, the company plans to integrate it with Playboy.com and drive all customers to one central location. In addition, Centerfold provides leverage for any future partnerships Playboy pursues through licensing, hospitality and other channels because it not only shows up to the table with an iconic global brand, but it also brings direct access to an engaged, targeted audience. For creators, there is immense value in being part of the Playboy ecosystem. Not only has Playboy envisioned a safe place for freedom of expression, inclusion and direct connections between fans and creators, it is also launching new avenues for its creators to generate additional revenue streams beyond core offerings including digital subscriptions, unlocks, and live hangouts. As creators, they have the additional opportunity to become affiliates by promoting Playboy products. The company already signed 40 of its top creators as part of a new affi
