New York City -- A report released Monday by Bloomberg said that J. Crew Group’s $10 million settlement of an investor lawsuit over the proposed takeover by private-equity firms TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners LP has fallen apart.
Citing a lawyer for the shareholders, the report said that J. Crew officials undermined a deal in which the clothier agreed to extend the period to solicit competing offers to the $3 billion buyout bid. The accord also included a $10 million payment to plaintiffs.
