Apparel maker Cherokee Inc. reported fourth-quarter earnings plummeted 86.4 percent, because of a onetime payment that boosted last year’s results.

For the three months ended Feb. 2, earnings fell to $2.8 million, or 31 cents a diluted share, from $20.7 million, or $2.33, in the year-ago period. Last year’s results were helped by a $33 million payment in connection with a so-called finders agreement. In that transaction, Iconix Brand Group Inc. agreed to pay the $33 million to Cherokee in exchange for Cherokee dropping its offer to purchase Mossimo.
