UPDATE 1-American Apparel CEO raises stake in company
March 28 (Reuters) - American Apparel Inc Chief Executive Dov Charney bought 1.8 million shares in the struggling clothing chain, raising his stake in the company to about 54 percent.
According to a regulatory filing, Charney bought the shares for $1.11 per share, or about $2.0 million in cash.
Before the latest deal he held a 51.8 percent stake in the company, according to filings.
The retailer and wholesaler, known for its edgy advertising and brightly colored T-shirts, has been under pressure to revamp its management and put its finances in order as it fights a prolonged sales slump.
In February the company had said that some lenders had extended a credit agreement, but a default could still jeopardize its ability to continue as a going concern. [ID:nN01295670]
