Global Brands Group, the fashion firm spun off from supply chain giant Li & Fung, will sell a significant part of its North American licensing business to Nasdaq-listed Differential Brands Group for US$1.38 billion to cut debt.

Chief executive Bruce Rockowitz said the asset disposal was aimed to “keep their debt levels down” and lower their working capital. The company has a net debt of US$1.1 billion as of March 2018.

The assets to be sold, valued at a total of US$1.28 billion, comprise all of its North American children’s wear and accessories businesses, and a majority of its West Coast and Canadian fashion operations.

The company, which licenses brands such as Juicy Couture, Calvin Klein, and Under Armour, will pay a special dividend to shareholders of up to HK$356 million, or 32.5 HK cents per share.
