Garant Schuh + Mode AG, a European specialty retailer for shoes, sports goods and leatherwear, sold subsidiary Pasito-Fricker to Ludwig Görtz GmbH.

Pasito-Fricker operates approximately 60 shoe shops in Switzerland in the luxury, fashion and family segments. With the takeover of 99,97% of the share portfolio held by GARANT (retroactive to January 1st, 2010) Görtz enters the Swiss market. GARANT continues to coordinate Central Regulation for Pasito-Fricker.

In November 2009 GARANT commissioned the investment bank Sal. Oppenheim (Corporate Finance Team in Zurich) for the search for a strategic partner for Pasito-Fricker.

The parties involved have agreed not to disclosure the details of the share purchase agreement.
