Ascena Seeks Figi's Sale
Jun 16 12
David Jaffe, President and CEO of Ascena Retail Group Inc., said the company is putting Figi's Mail Order Gifts, Inc. up for sale. Jaffe hinted the sale in May 2012 that he referred as "a different type of business than our other brands." "Figi's is a terrific business. ... We see it continuing to be very profitable. What we don't see is a strategic fit with Ascena Retail Group," Jaffe said. Ascena will continue to support Figi's financially until it's sold, Jaffe said. "While we announced our intention to divest it, there is no rush, there is no timeline. We're not going to starve the business, rather we are going to support its continued growth," Jaffe said. In its news release, Ascena said it can't give "assurance as to whether any such transaction will be consummated" and isn't obligated to make any further announcements regarding a deal. Figi's remains a growing, profitable business, said Jim Krueger, Figi's president. He said Ascena's decision is strictly business and is no reflection on Figi's. "It's a positive thing for Figi's," Krueger said. Figi is a part of Charming Shoppes Inc.
