Neiman Marcus Deal Tops $5 Billion

Share this content:
The Neiman Marcus Group Inc., Dallas, agreed to be sold to two private equity firms for about $5.1 billion, Neiman Marcus said yesterday.


The announcement follows the news of Saks reaching an agreement to sell its Proffitt's/McRae's department stores to Belk Inc. for $622 million. These developments are the latest in a series of retail-related deals during the past six months.


The Neiman Marcus buyers are Texas Pacific Group, which has a majority stake in J. Crew, and Warburg Pincus. They will acquire all outstanding class A and B shares of the Neiman Marcus Group for $100 per share in cash. The stock closed at $98.32 on Friday.


Neiman Marcus is also reportedly close to selling its credit card business in a separate deal that could bring more than $500 million.


Neiman Marcus is a luxury multichannel marketer that operates stores, catalogs and online operations under the Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman names. The company also owns the Horchow direct marketing business.
