“HBC Secures Neiman Marcus Acquisition in $2.65 Billion Luxury Retail Deal”


On July 4th, Saks Fifth Avenue’s parent company, HBC, announced its acquisition of luxury department store chain Neiman Marcus in a $2.65 billion agreement. This strategic move aims to enhance their bargaining power with suppliers and bolster cost management capabilities amidst a challenging retail environment affected by high interest rates and inflation post-pandemic.

HBC plans to establish Saks Global, a consolidated entity encompassing Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and other high-end retail and real estate assets. Neiman Marcus, renowned for its luxury offerings including designer apparel, footwear, and accessories, targets affluent clientele.

Marc Metrick, current CEO of Saks’ e-commerce operations, is slated to lead the combined company. Saks Global will compete head-to-head with industry peers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s, the latter reportedly exploring a sale to Arkhouse Management and Brigade Capital Management for approximately $6.9 billion.

Additionally, Amazon.com and Salesforce are set to invest in Saks Global, contributing technology, logistics expertise, and support in integrating artificial intelligence. Rhone Capital, an existing investor in HBC, will spearhead the investment in Saks.
