US: Hampshire cuts Q3 loss on Rio Garment growth
- Q3 net loss US$1.5m, down from $1.8m
- Net sales up 8.4% to $36.3m
- Boosted by Rio Garment acquisition

Rio added $5.7m to sales in the three months to 29 September, offsetting a $3m drop in Hampshire Brands sales, caused by the wind-down of the Joe Joseph Abboud licensing agreement.
