Haggar Clothing Company said its second quarter results represented a "return to solid operating profitability" after a year-long strategic realignment.

Without revealing specific figures, the apparel maker said the results in the year to date came despite difficult market conditions, marking the successful completion of its realignment process, which began in 2008.

"Haggar made wise decisions to focus and rationalise the business in the face of unprecedented market dynamics," said company CEO Paul Buxbaum.

"The apparel industry has seen nothing like the current environment in decades.

"Our goal now is to extend our gains to achieve best-in-class financial performance and to broaden the Haggar platform through enhanced distribution and selected product line extensions."

The company said the introduction of the Haggar brand in new distribution for Father's Day made a "significant contribution" to the first half results, along with the popularity of products from the Cool 18 and Work-to-Weekend ranges.

Buxbaum signalled that Haggar was evaluating opportunities to add "top-line volume" to the company.

"Our current position allows Haggar to approach opportunities more aggressively at this time and consider expanded options," he added.

Haggar said new spring collections and increased distribution should increase the company's market share and drive financial performance "well into the coming year".
