Finish Line Says Genesco in Breach

BY CSA STAFF

Nashville, Tenn., The Finish Line Inc. on Monday said it has been working to complete its $1.5 billion takeover of Genesco Inc., but that Genesco has refused to release additional information under the buyout agreement.

Finish Line said in a release that it has complied with its obligations, but that the deal has stalled because of Genesco’s failure to release financial documents or provide access to financial officials.

“These failures constitute a breach of the merger agreement, and The Finish Line is today notifying Genesco of same,” Finish Line stated.

Genesco on Friday accused Indianapolis-based Finish Line of developing “buyer’s remorse” over the deal and filed a lawsuit seeking an order to complete the deal.

MARKETER OF THE MONTH

Think you’re passionate about retail? Seems like the folks at Fair Isaac would agree. In fact, they’re so intent on tapping into that passion that they’ve launched the type of outreach campaign that no self-respecting, red-blooded, all-American, type-A retail executive could possibly ignore. Dubbed “Tattoos for Retail Warriors,” this new campaign by Fair Isaac, the Minneapolis consulting firm that counts retail management software as one of its areas of specialization, appeals to retail executives’ passion for the profession, complete with tag lines such as, “You’ve decided to lead. Now show your colors.” Kudos for the visceral effect. To find out more, visit: www.DecisionDial.com/RetailMarketing.
