BJÖRN BORG RELOCATES SPORTSWEAR OPERATIONS TO STOCKHOLM


“Our market surveys show that consumers want a higher fashion level in their sportswear and that there is a great interest in buying sportswear from us. It is our job to cater to that. With 90% -100% brand recognition in our main markets we have a solid foundation to build upon. This transaction is a natural step in our increased focus on sports fashion” says Henrik Bunge, CEO of Björn Borg.

The operations of Björn Borg Sport involve design, sourcing, sale and distribution of Björn Borg branded sports apparel products. The shares acquired from Baseline represent 49.58% of total shares in Björn Borg Sport. After the acquisition Björn Borg will hold 99.63% of outstanding shares in the company.

Björn Borg pays a purchase price for the shares, consisting of a fixed purchase price and a variable purchase price based on future purchases of sportswear products in 2015-2017 by Baseline group, holding the distribution right for Björn Borg sportswear in Benelux. Estimate is that the total purchase price payable for the shares will not exceed 700 KEUR.

Wind down of operations in Björn Borg Sport in the Netherlands will entail some one-time cost implications that will mainly be taken in Q4 2014, estimated to not exceed 750 KEUR. The sportswear operations are financially anticipated to be able to contribute positively to the Björn Borg group already in 2015.
