NEW YORK (AP) — Foot Locker is acquiring a pair of companies in deals worth over $1 billion.
The New York footwear and clothing company said Monday that it’s buying Text Trading Co., which owns and licenses Japanese retailer atmos, for $360 million. The transaction accelerates Foot Locker’s Asia-Pacific expansion.
Atmos, with a fiscal 2020 revenue of about $175 million, has 49 stores worldwide.
Foot Locker Inc. also announced that it’s buying athletic footwear and clothing company Eurostar for $750 million.
Eurostar Inc. concentrates on Hispanic consumers, running 93 stores in California, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada. The company had approximately $425 million in fiscal 2020 revenue.
“This acquisition enhances our product mix and provides access to a customer base and store footprint that are both differentiated from and complementary to our current portfolio,” Foot Locker Chairman and CEO Richard Johnson said in a statement.
Both deals are expected to close late in the third quarter.
