Sycamore Sweetens Talbots Offer to About $215 Million

Monday, 07 May 2012 10:30 AM

Women's apparel retailer Talbots Inc., which had opened its books to Sycamore Partners in January, received a raised takeover offer of $214.6 million from the private equity firm.

Talbots said Sycamore had offered to pay $3.05 per share — slightly higher than the $3.00 per share, or $212 million, it offered in December.

Talbots had opened its books to Sycamore in January, shopping for a higher bid after rejecting the firm's initial offer.

"The board continues to evaluate strategic alternatives, including Sycamore Partners' proposal," Talbots said in a statement on Monday.

The company, which has struggled with falling sales and margins, also said it entered an exclusivity agreement with Sycamore, which will end on May 15.
