A $60 million piece of Warnaco Group's bank debt was auctioned off last week at 27-28, but the parties involved could not be determined. The paper had been moving in the low 30s, and the size of the piece was said to have pushed down the price.

At the end of July, Warnaco sparked the secondary loan market with more than $60 million changing hands, according to dealers. Market sources also said the ultimate recovery value for the bank debt is deemed to be as high as 40. The paper has yet to climb to those levels though, because the timing is still uncertain (LMW, 7/29).

Warnaco is currently working its way through a bankruptcy restructuring process. It had originally pursued a strategy that would involve a merger or acquisition, but is now most likely to emerge as a stand-alone company on Jan. 6. Jim Fogarty, cfo, could not be reached by press time.
