Steve & Barry's Sells for $163M

RSS
U.S. apparel chain Steve & Barry's LLC said on Monday it agreed to be bought by a unit of investment firm Bay Harbour Management for $163 million.

The 276-store chain said it filed a "stalking horse" agreement with the bankruptcy court, an initial bid solicited strategically by Steve & Barry's to prevent low-ball offers.

The Bay Harbour unit plans to operate the apparel chain as a going concern and to acquire certain Steve & Barry store leases, all of its merchandise from stores it plans to purchase, and all intellectual property rights, including its celebrity and brand licenses.

The offer will be subject to higher and better proposals during an auction process scheduled for August, the company said.
