Blackstone close to Jack Wolfskin deal

July 21 - Private equity and real estate group Blackstone is close to buying German outdoor clothing brand Jack Wolfskin and a deal is likely to be announced as early as Thursday, a source familiar with the situation said.

The Financial Times earlier reported timing of the deal which the paper said would be for 700 million euros ($993.9 million).

Blackstone has been in exclusive talks to buy the brand, owned by Quadriga Capital and Barclays Private Equity.

Quadringa Capital said in a statement in June that all parties were aiming to conclude negotiations in the third quarter of 2011 and that the new owners would drive international expansion of the brand.

A source told Reuters at the time that Blackstone was willing to pay more than 700 million euros ($1 billion) for the brand, whose rivals in the fast growing market for outdoor clothing and equipment include VF Corp-owned The North Face.

Blackstone declined comment. Jack Wolfskin was not immediately available for comment.

The Financial Times also said the deal would see Jack Wolfskin's chief executive and co-founder Manfred Hell leave the board, while former Puma executive Andreas Klotz will join as chief financial officer to replace Christian Brandt, who will be chief operating officer.
