Charney, ousted from the company on June 18 for
alleged misuse of corporate funds and his role in disseminating
nude photos of an ex-employee, said he has also called for a
special meeting of stockholders on Sept. 25.
The former CEO, already the biggest shareholder in American
Apparel with a 27.2 percent stake, said the increased stake
reflected his holding as of last Friday.
American Apparel last Saturday said it has adopted a shareholder
rights plan after Charney expressed plans to increase influence
over the company.
