Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC and Former Louisiana Attorney General Continue Investigation Into J. Crew Group, Inc. Proposed Acquisition by TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners for $3 Billion -- JCG

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF") and Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., continue to investigate J. Crew Group, Inc. ("J. Crew" or the "Company") (NYSE: JCG) and its acquisition by TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners. The new owners plan to work with J. Crew CEO Millard Drexler, who will continue to head the company and will retain a "significant equity investment." 

KSF's investigation will revolve around whether the J. Crew board has undertaken a fair process in obtaining fair consideration for J. Crew shareholders. As reported by the WSJ on December 7, 2010, "Drexler was negotiating a potential sale of the clothing company for nearly seven weeks before he informed the company's board of his talks, according to the latest company securities filings." This news comes after the WSJ reported last week that Drexler had purchased a cattle ranch in the New York resort community of Montauk for $11.4 million.
