Commenting on this transaction, Kristiansen said: “Brait have a track record of long-term and supportive investments – they give us the perfect platform to continue our strategy of growing the New Look brand in the UK, Europe and China. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our existing shareholders for their support over the years, and I am looking forward to working with Brait in the future.”

New Look operates 800 stores wordwide. Brait said it had strong growth prospects in France, Germany, Poland and especially China which is a priority market.
