The transaction is in line with Billabong’s strategy to simplify its brand portfolio. The sale of Tigerlily will fetch Au$60 million, and the net proceeds from the sale will be used to retire debt.

Unique textiles, distinguishable prints, the fusion of fashion and classic themes, the continuous quest for the perfect bikini; these are the elements that have established Tigerlily as a leader in premium swimwear and beachwear, according to Tigerlily website.

Billabong was advised by Houlihan Lokey and Baker McKenzie on the transaction. The transaction is subject to conditions precedent which are typical for transactions of this type, with completion expected before the end of the current financial year. (RKS)
