Partnership

In 2010, LNK partnered with management and invested $100 million of equity in a minority PIPE to support PVH’s acquisition of Tommy Hilfiger.

The LNK team has a long history with PVH, having partnered with the company before while at a previous private equity firm, helping the company acquire and build the Calvin Klein brand.

The LNK team was excited to partner with PVH a second time, this time helping the company acquire and build the Tommy Hilfiger brand.

Background

PVH is one of the largest lifestyle apparel companies in the world with a diversified portfolio of iconic lifestyle brands led by Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.

PVH has evolved from its 1881 roots to become a diversified global company through a combination of strategic acquisitions and by successfully growing its brands globally across the wholesale, retail, e-commerce and licensing channels. PVH leverages its best-in-class global infrastructure, sourcing network, brand-focused management and marketing teams to support each of its brands.

We were very fortunate to partner with the LNK team in two highly transformative and successful transactions. LNK is incredibly insightful and supportive.
