Hudson’s Bay Company To Acquire Saks Incorporated For US$16 Per Share, Bringing Together Three Iconic Retail Brands

About Saks Incorporated

Saks Incorporated currently operates 41 Saks Fifth Avenue stores and 67 Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores throughout the United States and its online store, saks.com. Saks Incorporated trades on the NYSE under the symbol “SKS.” Saks Fifth Avenue is one of the world’s pre-eminent specialty retailers and is renowned for its superlative American and international designer collections; its expertly edited assortment of handbags, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics and gifts; and the first-rate fashion expertise and exemplary client service of its Associates. Saks Fifth Avenue is proud to be named a J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Customer Service Champion and is only one of 50 U.S. companies so named.

Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is a world-class, full-service destination for value-priced clothes and accessories for men, women, children and the home. OFF 5TH stores combine the two great joys of shopping: the delight of finding the very best and the thrill of the deal. Highly coveted designers are displayed alongside exclusive Saks brands you won’t find anywhere else, all in a luxury-in-a-loft environment that can showcase an emerging trend one day and a great deal the next.
