June 19 (Reuters) - Private equity firm Sycamore Partners said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday that it had lowered its offer for Chico’s Fas Inc to $3 per share in cash because of the U.S. retailer’s deteriorating financial performance.
Last month, Chico’s rejected an offer from Sycamore for $3.50 per share. Since then, Chico’s reported a drop in quarterly cash flow and lowered its earnings guidance for the year.
Chico’s did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Greg Roumeliotis in New York; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
