South Africa's TFG concludes deal buy Jet stores, some approvals pending

South African retailer TFG said it has concluded the agreement to buy select assets of budget clothes retailer Jet from the administrators of rival Edcon and expects to meet all conditions by the end of September. The acquisition plan was originally announced last month.

TFG, known as The Foschini Group, had said it will buy 371 stores and some assets of Jet for 480 million rand ($27.56 million) in order to expand into the budget clothes market, a segment in which it is not a major player.

It said it has now reached an agreement for the assets in South Africa, where most of the stores it is buying are located. Similar agreements for stores in Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho and the kingdom of eSwatini are expected to be finalised shortly, it said.
The remaining conditions include approval by competition authorities, an agreement with Jet’s landlords on amended lease terms and a deal with credit and financial services provider RCS to continue to operate Jet’s credit book.

Edcon, which also owns department store chain Edgars, applied for bankruptcy protection in April in an attempt to salvage parts of the group. Edcon has been a go-to place for South African shoppers for nearly a century, but ran into financial problems and failed to compete with international fashion chains such as Sweden’s H&M.
