Billabong has agreed to allow VF and Altamont to conduct due diligence to evaluate Billabong’s business.
VF’s primary interest in the transaction is in the Billabong brand. This interest is consistent with VF’s stated intent to pursue acquisitions, particularly in the Action Sports category, to continue to build shareholder value. Altamont’s interest lies in acquiring Billabong’s other brands and related assets, and is predicated on the firm’s mandate to invest in situations where it can provide strategic and operational support to build business success stories.
In Australia, an offer for a public company, even if non-binding and indicative, may be made public at the time of its submission. Billabong made the proposal public today. VF and Altamont are therefore taking the precaution of announcing this proposal, notwithstanding its very preliminary nature.
The proposal does not constitute a binding offer for Billabong nor does it impose any obligation on VF or Altamont to make an offer for Billabong until formal transaction documents are executed.
VF Corporation is a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel and footwear with more than 30 brands. The company’s largest five brands are The North Face, Wrangler, Timberland, Vans, and Lee. Other brands include 7 For All Mankind, Bulwark, Eagle Creek, Eastpak, Ella Moss, JanSport, Kipling, lucy, Majestic, Napapijri, Nautica, Red Kap, Reef, Riders, Splendid and Smartwool.
