Sep '13
Ares Management LLC and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) announced that their affiliates have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Neiman Marcus Group LTD Inc. from a group of investors led by TPG and Warburg Pincus for a purchase price of US$6.0 billion.

A portion of the purchase price will be used at the closing to repay all amounts outstanding under the Company's existing credit facilities other than its Debentures.

Ares and CPPIB will hold an equal economic interest in the legendary retailer, and the Company's management will retain a minority stake. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

Based in Dallas, Texas, Neiman Marcus Group is one of the largest U.S. luxury retailers, comprised of 79 stores totaling more than 6.5 million gross square feet. The Company operates 41 Neiman Marcus Stores, two Bergdorf Goodman locations in Manhattan and 36 Last Call outlet centers.

Its upscale online retailing division operates under the Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Last Call and Horchow brand names.

Neiman Marcus Group's currently outstanding 7.125% Senior Debentures due 2028 issued by its operating subsidiary, The Neiman Marcus Group, Inc., are expected to remain outstanding immediately following the closing of the transaction in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing such Debentures.
