Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled to $201.8 million, or 32.6 per cent of revenues as against 215.7 million or 32.9 per cent of revenues.

Operating loss was higher at $808.5 million in the reporting period vis-à-vis $636.3 million in the third quarter of prior fiscal.

“Both this fiscal and last fiscal reflect the impact of pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $845.9 million and $684.0 million, respectively,” it explained.

“Our team is focused on having a successful holiday season and we continue to execute on our plans to deliver improved performance over the longer term," he too added.

The company also named Michael Nicholson as president, COO and CFO effective January 11, 2016, who moves from Ann Inc where he served most recently as executive vice president, COO and CFO.

He will lead J.Crew's finance, global supply chain, sourcing, IT, real estate, asset management and investment management functions and report to Millard Drexler.

According to J.Crew, Nicholson's financial and operational experience and expertise in the retail and apparel industry will complement its business and support its growth and profit improvement initiatives. (AR)
