Blog: Leonie BarrieHilfiger listing

Leonie Barrie | 8 October 2007

No more news yet about the possible sale of Tommy Hilfiger by private equity firm Apax partners, which broke over the weekend. Although there are suggestions that the firm has made some progress in turning around the apparel brand, which it bought for $1.6bn in 2006, in both the US and Europe, the fact that other private equity firms are currently tied up by the credit crunch means that a listing is seen as the obvious exit route for the business.
