Hampshire Group Updates Status of Net Operating Loss Carryforwards

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hampshire Group, Limited (OTC Markets: HAMP), a leading provider of sportswear, today announced that the Board of Directors, in consultation with management and the Company's professional advisors, completed an examination of past trading and corporate actions that can affect the Company's net operating loss carryforwards. As a result of this examination, the Board of Directors has determined that on March 7, 2013, the Company underwent a "change of control" as defined by Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code and, as a result, the Company will be significantly limited in its future use of federal net operating loss carryforwards generated prior to March 7, 2013 pursuant to the provisions of Section 382 and related sections of the Internal Revenue Code. The Company expects similar limitations will apply under state laws to state net operating loss carryforwards as well.

The Company is currently calculating the exact amount of the annual limitations. The Company currently estimates that it will be limited to using less than $1.0 million of the net operating loss carryforwards generated prior to March 7, 2013 on an annual basis going forward. Any net operating loss carryforwards generated after March 7, 2013 will be fully available for use. Full details will be provided in the Company's upcoming 10-Q filing for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, which is expected to be filed in August 2013.
