Charney, ousted from the company on June 18 for alleged misuse of corporate funds and his role in disseminating nude photos of an ex-employee, said he has also called for a special meeting of stockholders on Sept. 25.

The former CEO, already the biggest shareholder in American Apparel with a 27.2 percent stake, said the increased stake reflected his holding as of last Friday.
