NEW YORK — Rock & Republic, the premium denim company that filed for bankruptcy protection April 1, appears to be drumming up some interest among investors.
“Essentially there’s a lot of interest from strategic and financial partners,” said Geoffrey D. Lurie, who was hired this month as chief restructuring officer at the Culver City, Calif.-based denim firm. “All options are open.” He said Michael Ball, the company’s chief executive officer, would be interested in continuing the growth with a financial partner, “but if [a strategic partner] came along with a significant offer, we’d listen to them.”
