NEW YORK — Boosted by a higher gross profit margin, Bernard Chaus Inc. provided evidence of a turnaround with second-quarter gains that came against year-ago losses.
The women’s sportswear manufacturer said income for the three months ended Dec. 31 was $580,000, or 2 cents a diluted share, against a loss of $5.3 million, or 20 cents, in the year-ago period. Sales rose 3.1 percent to $30.9 million from $30 million. Revenues include a one-month contribution from S.L. Danielle, a manufacturer of moderately priced, private label apparel acquired in December.
