New York -- British billionaire Sir Philip Green, the owner of the Arcadia retail group, sold a 25% stake in his fast-fashion Topshop and Topman retail chains to Los Angeles-based Leonard Green & Partners for about $805 million. Arcadia’s other retail divisions include Miss Selfridges, Bhs, and Dorothy Parker.
The deal, which will help fund Topshop’s expansion in the United States, values the company at $3.2 billion, according to a statement from Green. Topshop currently has three U.S. flagships, in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. It also has entered into a deal to open in-store shops in select Nordstrom locations.
