Morris Goldfarb, the company's chairman of the board and chief executive officer, and Sammy Aaron, the vice chairman of the board and president of G-III, voluntarily agreed to receive no salary other than payment by G-III of their employee contributions, with respect to medical benefits and long-term disability, the company announced in a statement on March 24. 

In addition, G-III's chief operating officer and secretary, Wayne S. Miller; chief financial officer, Neal S. Nackman; and executive vice president and board member, Jeffrey Goldfarb have each voluntarily agreed to a 40% reduction in their annual salary.  

Effective March 30, the base annual salaries of other senior personnel will be temporarily reduced by 10% to 40%, depending upon current salary level, the company said. 

Earlier this month, the company beat Wall Street expectations when it reported net income of $25.3 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2020. 

The company’s quarterly earnings represented a 5% increase compared to the $24.1 million in the prior-year period, while quarterly net sales totaled $754.6 million, down 1.6% from $766.8 million in the previous year.
