Asos buys Topshop, Topman and Miss Selfridge brands

Online fashion retailer Asos has bought the Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge and HIIT brands from failed retail group Arcadia in a deal worth £295m. Sir Philip Green's Arcadia group fell into administration in November last year, casting doubt over the future of its brands and 13,000 jobs. It is paying £265m for the brands and a further £30m for the stock. "Asos chief executive Nick Beighton said:"The acquisition of these iconic British brands is a hugely exciting moment for Asos and our customers and will help accelerate our multi-brand platform strategy. Other brands in the Arcadia stable that have not yet been sold include Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and Burton. Boohoo sealed a deal to buy the Debenhams brand and website for £55m. However, the price tag did not include any of the retailer's remaining 118 High Street stores or its workforce, resulting in up to 12,000 job losses.
