The multinational department store conglomerate is downsizing once again -- and its top shareholders want to take the company private.
The company announced a deal to sell its German real estate and retail joint ventures for about $1.5 billion, allowing it to focus more on its core North American business, which includes its eponymous department-store chain and Saks Fifth Avenue. Richard Baker, the company’s chairman and one-time CEO, is part of a coalition that has proposed a cash deal of about about C$1.74 billion ($1.3 billion), or C$9.45 per share, a price the company said would represent a 48% premium over where shares closed on Friday. Nordstrom Inc., a close retailing cousin to Hudson’s Bay, said back in June 2017 that it was exploring a take-private transaction.
Hudson’s Bay Co. has tried everything to appease shareholders, from cutting costs to selling off assets. None of it has halted the stock’s steady decline, so Chairman Richard Baker is stepping in with a cash bid valued at about C$1.74 billion ($1.31 billion) to take the company private. Baker is teaming up with investors, including Rhone Capital LLC and WeWork Property Advisors, to offer C$9.45 a share for the remaining stock of Hudson’s Bay.
Hudson's Bay Co Executive Chairman Richard Baker said on Monday he had teamed up with other shareholders to offer to take the struggling Canadian department store operator private in a C$1.74 billion ($1.3 billion) cash deal. The proposal comes as Hudson's Bay has been shuttering its underperforming shops to cut costs as it competes with discount direct-to-consumer brands and e-commerce behemoths such as Amazon.com Inc. It opens up Baker to investor scrutiny, given that the buyout consortium he put together is made up of shareholders who already own 57% of the company.

HBC (HBC.TO) announced that its Board of Directors has formed a Special Committee of independent directors to review the June 10, 2019 proposal from a group of HBC shareholders for the privatization of the Company at a price of C$9.45 per share, payable in cash. The group disclosed that they collectively own approximately 57% of the outstanding common shares of HBC on an as-converted basis.
Proposed Transaction Delivers Substantial 48% Premium, Provides Immediate and Certain Value to HBC Public Shareholders
HBC (TSX: HBC) has entered into definitive agreements to sell the company’s remaining stake in its German real estate joint venture, and divest its related retail joint venture to its partner, SIGNA, along with assumption of certain obligations for a total consideration of $1.5 billion (€1 billion).

The We Company, parent of workspace provider WeWork, said on Wednesday it has created a $2.9 billion real estate investment platform with funding from one of Canada's largest pension funds, building on ties with private equity firm the Rhone Group. The platform, called ARK, has gained $1 billion from Canada's Ivanhoe Cambridge, the property arm of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the Montreal-based company said.

Hudson's Bay Co. said Monday that it is pursuing strategic alternatives for its Lord & Taylor department store business, including a sale or merger. On a day when most other retail stocks were down, Hudson's Bay shares were up 2.7% after the news.

Hudson's Bay's other department store chains include Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks Off 5th. Hudson's Bay shares are up 4.1% for the year to date while the ProShares Decline of the Retail Store ETF is down 7% for the period and the S&P 500 index is up 16.5%.
