Hudson’s Bay Examining Potential Neiman Marcus Buy

Ares Management LP and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, owners of Neiman Marcus Group Ltd., are in discussions with rival retailer Hudson’s Bay Co. to sell. Upscale retailer Neiman Marcus has hired financial advisors to explore strategic alternatives that would help flagging sales.

The retailer is dealing with approximately $5 billion in debt, as well as weak sales and poor earnings.

The Wall Street Journal said Hudson’s Bay wants a transaction that would provide control of the business without having to assume the company’s debt.
