Toys"R"Us (Canada) Ltd. Key Developments

Multiple Bids For Toys R Us Canadian Stores

Toys"R"Us (Canada) Ltd. has received multiple non-binding offers. The bankruptcy documents say debtors had reached out to more than 20 interested parties in a bid to sell off the 82 stores in Canada as the toy retailer looks to wind down operations. The filings say debtors are looking to combine up to 200 of the best-performing United States stores with the Canadian sell-off, as first mentioned by Toys “R” Us Chief Executive Officer David Brandon. Toys “R” Us has said it’s closing or selling its 740 stores as well as its international operations, with filings showing the company has received “several” non-binding offers for all or parts of the European business and has asked for offers for the Asian-Pacific business by early April 2018. The debtors are actively negotiating with potential bidders for a reverse merger of Toys 'R' Us, Inc.'s equity interests in Toys 'R' Us Canada, according to documents filed at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond. Interested parties have been given access to an electronic data room with detailed financial records. The proposed timeline for the sale is quick, if there are several qualified competing bids, the debtors will hold an auction for the business on March 29, 2018 and the closing of the sale of Toys 'R' Us Canada equity would occur "no later than April 16, 2018."
