On Monday, Iconic Labs received termination notices for management service agreements with Greencastle Capital for TheLondonEconomic, with management service agreement for JOE Media and Lovin' Media also terminated. Iconic Labs noted that the agreements represented the most significant proportion of Iconic's revenue to date.
