Apparel brand Brooks Brothers enters stalking horse purchase agreement with SPARC Group for $305 million

In a development that marks apparel brand Brooks Brothers remaining a going concerns and help it maintain its operations, the company has entered into a “stalking horse” purchase agreement with retailer SPARC Group LLC for $305 million.

Earlier this month, the 200-year old iconic apparel retailer had filed for bankruptcy joining a slew of American companies that have succumbed to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.

According to the terms of the agreement, SPARC intends to buy the company’s entire global business operations as a going concern, said Brooks Brothers in a statement.

The “stalking horse” agreement would imply that any other bids that come in must be higher than the offer made by SPARC.

The agreement is subject to court approval.

A court hearing to approve the bid has been set for August 3; competing offers are due on August 5.

The hearing for the final sale of its assets is set scheduled for August 11, said Brooks Brothers.
