Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with the landlord at 650 Fifth Avenue, a joint venture between Jeff Sutton's Wharton Properties and SL Green Realty, to terminate the lease for its flagship Juicy Couture store in New York City in exchange for a $51 million payment. The completion of this transaction is expected in the first half of 2014, at which time the store will close.
 
Commenting on the announcement, William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer of Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc., said: "We said on our third quarter earnings call that there was significant value in the 650 Fifth Avenue lease, and that proceeds from such a transaction could materially improve the total net proceeds resulting from our decision to exit the Juicy Couture business. 
 
“With the closing of this lease termination, anticipated in the first half of 2014, our estimated net proceeds from the combined transactions associated with our exit of the Juicy Couture business are expected to be $175-$185 million."
