Danskin, Inc. has changed its name to Triumph Apparel Corporation, effective August 2, 2007. Triumph was the Corporations name earlier in its 125 year history.
The name change was required as part of the sale of its Danskin intellectual property, to Iconix Brand Group, Inc. in March 2007. As part of the transaction, Danskin entered into a license agreement with Iconix to continue to operate the Danskin wholesale business, including its freestanding retail stores and its internet merchant site, Danskin.com. The companys trading symbol, DANS, remains the same.
Carol Hochman, Triumphs CEO said “There has been no change in management and Triumph Apparel Corporation will be providing the same products and fine service under the Danskin® name on which we have built our reputation in the industry.”
