The recession and the retail bankruptcies it has triggered pushed Tarrant Apparel Group Inc. to a fourth-quarter loss on a double-digit sales decline.
For the quarter ended Dec. 31, the Los Angeles-based firm lost $5.8 million, or 19 cents a diluted share, compared with profits of $325,000, or 1 cent a share, a year earlier. Included in the loss for the 2008 quarter was a pretax goodwill impairment charge of $1.4 million for the disposition of Tarrant’s 45 percent stake in American Rag Cie LLC. Sales in the three months fell 34.5 percent to $37.5 million from $57.3 million in the 2007 quarter.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
