David Zalaznick, JZCP’s Founder and Investment Adviser, commented: “This will be a significant transaction that demonstrates JZCP’s ability to consistently realise key assets at, or above, NAV. Our CEO, Mike Shea, and his management team at BHS did a superb job and we appreciate all their efforts that made this such a successful transaction.”
Completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, including The Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.
