Business Highlights

Lululemon Athletica Inc. executives told investors Thursday that the company still hasn't determined the cause behind the too-sheer yoga pants that had to be pulled off shelves and taken offline over the weekend. And officials declined to say when the items would be back.

Executives also indicated that the unacceptable sheerness in the Luon black pants isn't just limited to the March 1 shipments to stores but also includes pants still in its factories.

As a result the Canadian company said the withdrawal will mean lost revenue of $12 million to $17 million in the first quarter and $45 million to $50 million for the rest of the year, particularly in the second quarter.
