“This is a unique opportunity to reunite the ‘House of Calvin Klein’ and reinforces our strategy to drive the global growth of Calvin Klein,” said Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PVH. “Having direct global control of the two largest apparel categories for Calvin Klein – jeans and underwear – will allow us to unlock additional growth potential of this powerful designer brand across all major product categories, geographies and distribution channels. The Warnaco Calvin Klein businesses will be moved onto our Calvin Klein platform under the leadership of Tom Murry, President & Chief Executive Officer, Calvin Klein, to ensure a single brand vision globally.”Helen McCluskey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Warnaco, said, “This transaction delivers compelling value to our stockholders and significant benefits for the combined company. We are proud of what we have accomplished, driving growth and profitability and increasing our share price by roughly 500% since our restructuring in 2003. Our team has built a strong global infrastructure, expanded our direct-to-consumer footprint and created a solid foundation for long-term growth. We look forward to the opportunities this combination brings to the continued success of Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear, the increased potential for our heritage brands, and the future for our associates.”
