TPG bids for Billabong despite Nixon sale

Private equity firm TPG Capital still wants to buy Billabong even after the Nixon sale and has made a bid for the rest of the company.

 

Billabong disclosed the news Monday in Australia.

 

TPG bid $3 cash per share.

 

Billabong's stock closed at $2.83 on Monday.

 

Here is the notice that Billabong filed with the Australian Securities Exchange.

 

PROPOSAL RECEIVED


GOLD COAST, 20 February, 2012: The Board of Directors of Billabong announces that, before market opening today, it received a non-binding, indicative proposal from TPG Capital to acquire all of the shares in the company for $3.00 cash per share by way of a Scheme of Arrangement.

 

The proposal is subject to due diligence, subject to finance and conditional on a number of other matters, but it does not preclude the Nixon transaction announced on Friday 17 February 2012.

The Board of Billabong will consider the proposal and advise shareholders of its views in due course. In the meantime, Billabong shareholders do not need to take any action in response to the proposal.

 

Billabong has appointed Goldman Sachs as financial advisors and Allens Arthur Robinson as legal advisors.
