The transaction values Warnaco at approximately $2.9 billion. With over $8 billion in pro forma revenue, PVH will be one of the largest and most profitable global branded lifestyle apparel companies in the world, with a diversified portfolio of iconic brands led by Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as heritage brands – Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Bass, Speedo, Olga and Warner’s.
Based on PVH’s last closing stock price, the per share value of the consideration to be received by Warnaco stockholders is $68.43, a 34% premium over the last closing price of Warnaco common stock. The merger, which has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies, is expected to close in early 2013, at which time the former Warnaco stockholders will own approximately 10% of the outstanding common stock of PVH.
In addition, Helen McCluskey, Warnaco’s President and Chief Executive Officer, is expected to join PVH’s Board of Directors. The Warnaco Board of Directors has unanimously recommended that Warnaco stockholders approve the transaction.
PVH anticipates approximately $100 million of annual run rate synergies from the transaction, which will be fully realized over three years. In order to achieve these synergies, PVH expects to incur one-time costs of approximately $175 million over three years.
PVH expects the transaction to be $0.35 per share accretive to earnings in the first full year (fiscal 2013, if the deal closes when currently anticipated), excluding one-time integration costs and transaction expenses but including the effect of the potential loss of a license.
When the $100 million of expense synergies are fully realized in year 3, PVH would expect the transaction to be accretive to earnings by $1.00 per share, excluding one-time integration costs and including the effect of the potential loss of a license.
“This is a unique opportunity to reunite the ‘House of Calvin Klein’ and reinforces our strategy to drive the global growth of Calvin Klein,” said Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PVH. “Having direct global control of the two largest apparel categories for Calvin Klein – jeans and underwear – will allow us to unlock additional growth potential of this powerful designer brand across all major product categories, geographies and distribution channels. The Warnaco Calvin Klein businesses will be moved onto our Calvin Klein platform under the leadership of Tom Murry, President & Chief Executive Officer, Calvin Klein, to ensure a single brand vision globally.”
Helen McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Warnaco, said, “This transaction delivers compelling value to our stockholders and significant benefits for the combined company. We are proud of what we have accomplished, driving growth and profitability and increasing our share price by roughly 500% since our restructuring in 2003.
