Arcadia Group Limited Key Developments

Arcadia Seeks Acquisitions

Arcadia Group Limited is seeking acquisitions. Roger Kwok, Managing Director of Arcadia said, “Arcadia was considering further acquisitions and developing new retirement villages.”

Christo Wiese To Acquire BHS

Christo Wiese is seeking to acquire Arcadia Group Limited (BHS Limited) from Sir Philip Green. BHS is one of several retailers on a list of possible British acquisitions being considered by Wiese, who has a personal fortune of £2.2 billion. He has also formed an alliance with Andy Bond, who has been given the task of finding possible British acquisitions. Other British groups being considered are understood to include at least one of the pound store chains. His representatives have visited the UK on at least one occasion this year to review possible targets. A source close to the situation said, "Deals are starting to happen in the UK and Christo does not want to miss the opportunity if it’s there, whether through an intermediary or not. He knows the UK and there are plenty of chains here that would fit into his group of shops. BHS is one of those. The internet means retail is global now." Sources were unable to say if any of the plans had advanced in recent weeks and no formal approaches have been made to possible targets.
