NEW YORK — The Warnaco Group Inc. continued to bleed red in September as reorganization costs more than offset operating income.
In a Dec. 2 statement of operations filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York and released by the Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday, for the month ended Oct. 5, Warnaco registered a net loss of $12.8 million.
Net revenues for the New York-based manufacturer accrued to $134 million.
Operating income for the month was $3.3 million, but $11.2 million in costs for reorganization items pushed the company to an operating loss of $7.8 million. An income tax provision of $1.7 million and $1.3 million in interest expense also eroded the bottom line.
In better news, operations from Warnaco’s debtor entities did post earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and reorganization items (EBITDAR) of $12 million on revenues of $134 million.
For the nine months ended Oct. 5, Warnaco recorded a net loss of $905.4 million on revenues of $949.6 million. Operating income of $28.4 million was more than erased by $76.2 million in reorganization costs. That pushed the company to sustain an operating loss of $47.8 million.
Other items negating earnings were $14.7 million in interest expenses, as well as a cumulative $787.8 million charge related to a change in accounting principle. As a result, a tax benefit of $3.3 million could do little to stanch the bleeding.
EBITDAR for the period for the operations of Warnaco’s debtor entities came to $101.6 million on revenues of $1.14 billion.

“There’s a huge gap between the old way of doing things and today. It takes the youth to help evolve that. You have to count on the kids today to help lead you into the future. A lot of these retailers are stuck in the past. Communication is the biggest thing,” said @ronniefieg of @kith on the youth’s role in retail. On Monday night, Jeff Staple moderated a keynote session with Fieg and @syresmith at Assembly - a series of workshops, talks and keynotes addressing topics or issues in the apparel industry.
