Andrew Marc, which is recognized as one of the best outerwear brands in the marketplace, is an excellent fit with our organization.

Strategically, we believe that the Andrew Marc brand can be leveraged into a variety of new categories to become a meaningful contemporary lifestyle brand. Operationally, we believe that we can quickly identify synergies and achieve economies of scale in a variety of areas.

Financially, we believe that the transaction will prove to be accretive this year. We also believe that the transaction will provide exceptional value to us and the opportunity to drive incremental returns to our shareholders as we move forward with our growth plans for this business.”

As we now focus on our other portfolio companies, we are confident that the tremendous potential of Andrew Marc, Marc New York, Dockers and Levi's will continue to be realized under the ownership of G-III.”
