FREMONT, CA, December 1, 2020 – Tailored Brands, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively “Tailored Brands” or the “Company”) today announced their emergence from Chapter 11 protection. This milestone marks the successful completion of the Company’s financial restructuring process and the implementation of the Plan of Reorganization confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court on November 13, 2020. Tailored Brands emerges with a significantly bolstered financial position, $686 million of debt eliminated from its balance sheet and the full support of its new owners.
“We are thrilled to emerge from Chapter 11, having gained the financial and operational flexibility we need to support each of our brands in this rapidly evolving retail environment, continue to show up strong for our customers and remain an attractive employer. I want to thank all of the lenders, employees, customers, landlords, vendors and other partners who helped us get to this point,” said Tailored Brands President and Chief Executive Officer Dinesh Lathi. “Be assured that, while addressing our underlying financial challenges precipitated by the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, we continued to strengthen our business and brands with efforts focused on expanding our omni-channel capabilities to provide even greater convenience for our customers, curating our merchandise assortments to align with today’s needs and trends, and launching exciting new partnerships that appeal to existing and new customers. As a result, we are confident we are well-positioned for the future and look forward to building upon this momentum as we enter this next chapter.”
Tailored Brands now operates with a strengthened capital structure, consisting of a $430 million ABL facility, a $365 million exit term loan and $75 million of cash from a new debt facility. The Company expects that this exit financing will support ongoing operations and enable the Company to execute on its strategic initiatives.
