ASOS close to deal to buy Topshop, Miss Selfridge for $411 million

LONDON, Jan 30 (Reuters) - British online fashion retailer ASOS is on the verge of a deal to buy Topshop and Miss Selfridge from the administrators of British tycoon Philip Green’s Arcadia Group for almost 300 million pounds ($411 million), Sky News reported.

ASOS could announce a deal as early as Monday, Sky said.

Arcadia went into administration in November, putting more than 13,000 jobs at risk and becoming Britain’s biggest corporate casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASOS and the administrators of Arcadia were not immediately available for comment.
