PVH announced that its recent acquisition of The Warnaco Group (Calvin Klein clothing) will require more investment than the company initially anticipated. PVH purchased Warnaco Group in a deal worth $2.9 billion that closed last month, but that $2.9 billion is going to end up being significantly more.
