PPR has entered into an exclusive negotiation with Alpha Private Equity Fund 6 (’APEF 6’) for the sale of 100% of Redcats’ shares in the Cyrillus and Vertbaudet brands, which constitute Redcats’ Children and Family division, for an enterprise value of €119 million.

APEF 6 is a private equity fund specialized in the acquisition and development of medium-sized companies, including spin-offs from large corporations, with the support of their management teams.

This transaction would place Cyrillus and Vertbaudet in an excellent position to take advantage of their full potential and to continue their development.

The sale by Redcats of its Children and Family division constitutes a further step forward in the transformation of PPR into a global leader in apparel and accessories, within the luxury and sport & lifestyle segments.

The transaction, which is still subject to informing and consulting with employee representative bodies and to approval of the competition authorities, should be finalized in the coming months.
