Sycamore Partners Key Developments
Investors Reportedly Eyes To Acquire Aéropostale
Aug 26 16
Aéropostale, Inc. (OTCPK:AROP.Q) received bids this week for its business from Sycamore Partners, as well as liquidators, firms that wind down businesses, according to people familiar with the matter. Versa Capital Management, Inc. did not submit a bid for the business, the people said. Versa had been preparing a stalking horse offer for Aeropostale as a going concern business, and the retailer had received court approval to pay some of the expenses incurred by Versa in putting together the proposal. A U.S. bankruptcy court judge issued a decision siding with Sycamore in its fight with Aeropostale, who accused the firm of conducting a "loan to own" scheme and pushing the retailer into bankruptcy. Bids for the company were due on Thursday, and an auction is scheduled to be held on August 29, 2016. It is unclear what Sycamore's plans are for the business, should it win the auction. Aeropostale also received bids for some of its leases and its GoJane.com business, a shoe and apparel shopping site, said one of the people.
