Item 7.01.   Regulation FD Disclosure.
As previously disclosed, Golden Brand Clothing (Canada) Ltd., a subsidiary of the Company, has announced its intention to close its manufacturing facility in Montreal, Canada. The Canadian union representing certain employees at the manufacturing facility in Montreal has filed a grievance against Golden Brand pursuant to the collective bargaining agreement, alleging that Golden Brand would be in breach of certain provisions of the agreement in connection with closing the manufacturing facility. The union is asking the arbitrator to order Golden Brand to keep the manufacturing facility in operation provisionally pending a final judgment, and by final judgment, until the expiry of the collective bargaining agreement on November 30, 2009 and for compensation to the extent work is outsourced from the manufacturing facility.
We believe that Golden Brand is acting in conformity with the agreement and do not believe that this proceeding will have a material adverse effect on the Company.
