There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

VF Corp. and Puma are among the bidders for winter outerwear company Helly Hansen, according to an unsourced report in the Sunday Times in the UK.

 

VF Corp. and now PPR, which owns Puma, are major players in the action sports and outdoor industries, of course. PPR owns Volcom and VF Corp. owns Vans, Timberland and North Face.

 

Both VF Corp and PPR have repeatedly stated they wanted to make more acquisitions in the outdoor and action sports arenas.

 

The report stated that Helly Hansen could be worth as much as 200 million pounds, about $312 million.
