Bernard Chaus Inc. has informed the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is in default on its credit agreement with The CIT Group, putting its ability to continue as a going concern at risk.
The New York-based sportswear firm didn’t specify which of its financial covenants weren’t met and said CIT was continuing to provide it with financing following an agreement on revisions and amendments to an earlier pact reached on Sept. 10 and now set to expire on Sept. 18, 2011. Chaus is seeking further revisions but noted that its ability to go forward could be in peril should CIT opt to demand immediate payment or terminate the agreement.
