Vince Holding Corp., previously known as Apparel Holding Corp., announced that it has closed its previously reported initial public offering of 10,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $20.00 per share.

In connection with the initial public offering, the underwriters exercised in full their option to purchase an additional 1,500,000 shares of common stock from affiliates of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. (the “Selling Stockholders”). As a result, the total initial public offering size was 11,500,000 shares.

Vince received proceeds, net of underwriters’ discount and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by Vince, of approximately $177 million from the offering.

Vince retained approximately $5.0 million of such net proceeds for general corporate purposes and used the remaining net proceeds, together with net borrowings under its new term loan facility to repay a promissory note (the “Kellwood Note Receivable’) issued to Kellwood Company in connection with the restructuring which occurred immediately prior to the consummation of the initial public offering.

Proceeds from the repayment of the Kellwood Note Receivable were used, to repay or discharge certain existing debt of Kellwood Company. Vince did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the Selling Stockholders.

Jill Granoff, Chief Executive Officer of Vince, said, “Our entire team looks forward to this new and exciting chapter in the brand’s evolution. We intend to continue to build upon Vince’s reputation as a leader in contemporary fashion by capitalizing on our strong customer loyalty, growing our customer base and introducing new and compelling product assortments and categories.”

Concurrently with the closing of the initial public offering, Vince entered into a $175 million term loan, net borrowings from which were used to repay the Kellwood Note Receivable, and a $50 million revolving credit facility.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated acted as joint book-running managers of the offering, and Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated are the representatives of the underwriters. In addition, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acted as joint bookrunning managers in the offering.
