Sears Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SHLD) plans to consider options for its Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands as well as its Sears Home Services repair business, signaling that the unprofitable retailer may again be turning to asset sales to generate cash amid continued losses.

The company will “aggressively” evaluate all alternatives for the businesses and has hired Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) and LionTree Advisors to assist in the efforts, according to a statement Thursday. Sears also reported that its first-quarter net loss expanded to $471 million, or $4.41 a share, and said chief financial officer Robert Schriesheim plans to leave the company.
