Bluestem hearings wrap up March 31

The first day of hearings in the bankruptcy case involving Blair LLC, its parent company — Bluestem Brands — and 16 other related businesses is in the books.

The court approved a number of motions for the time being, but denied one involving the businesses’ proposed use of net operating losses (NOLs), according to a Wednesday filing in the case.

NOLs are tax breaks that are generated when a company has more deductions than taxable income. The companies (the debtors) made a motion that involved them being allowed to use those NOLs. Bluestem Group Inc. — which is the parent company over all of the debtors, including Bluestem Brands — objected, stating that the NOLs were earned before the debtors were part of the corporate family.

Final hearings regarding all of the motions are scheduled for March 31.
