NEW YORK — Danskin Inc., citing weak sales in its Pennaco Hosiery division, reported an operating loss Thursday of $1.15 million in the fourth quarter ended March 26. Last year the company had an operating profit of $1.95 million.

The net loss in the period totaled $8 million. This reflects a $5.2 million reserve related to money owed to its parent, Esmark, which holds a 50.7 percent stake for the decline in the stock price of Danskin. The stock is one of Esmark’s main assets. The loss also includes a $1.2 million charge for acquisition and development of certain hosiery programs. In the year-ago quarter, Danskin had a net profit of $1.4 million, or 23 cents a share.
