PAS Group acquires Jets
1st Dec 2015 — Australian swimwear label Jets has been snapped up by retail juggernaut The PAS Group.
The acquisition was reportedly funded by PAS's existing cash and a margin of its undrawn debt facility and is expected to be immediately earnings accretive.
PAS targeted the swim and activewear label due to its high margin business which records an EBIDTA to sales ratio in excess of 15% this year.
PAS CEO Eric Morris believes the acquisition will push the Jets brand further into the global market.
'Jets is a strong brand in Australia with a highly developed design, production and distribution infrastructure.
'It also enhances our presence in the rapidly growing activewear market and provides a platform for significant future growth.
'In Australia, there are opportunities to increase its retail footprint and expand its online presence.
