On January 31, 2020, Naked Brand Group Limited (the “Company”), on the one hand, and Heidi Klum and Heidi Klum Company, LLC, on the other hand, entered into a termination agreement (the “Termination Agreement”), which provides for the termination of the license agreement between the parties, dated September 25, 2014 (the “License Agreement”).
Pursuant to the License Agreement, Heidi Klum Company, LLC had granted the Company a license for the design, manufacture and sale of Heidi Klum branded intimate apparel and swimwear. The initial term of the License Agreement had been scheduled to expire in December 2021 and would have been renewable for additional periods of five years at the Company’s discretion.
The Termination Agreement provides that the Company may continue selling existing Heidi Klum branded products, as well as Heidi Klum branded products manufactured on or prior to June 30, 2020 under existing contracts. The right to continue selling such products will continue until six months after the date of the Termination Agreement in the Northern Hemisphere and until 12 months after the date of the Termination Agreement in the Southern Hemisphere. The Company will pay a termination fee to Heidi Klum Company, LLC in lieu of further royalties, payable in installments through December 30, 2020. The Company will continue to own the product designs developed by it and all product designs used by it pursuant to the License Agreement.
The Company’s brands now include its flagship Bendon brand, as well as Bendon Man, Davenport, Fayreform, Hickory, Lovable and Pleasure State. The Company sells these brands at 60 Bendon stores in Australia and New Zealand and online at www.bendonlingerie.com, as well as across multiple wholesale customers and distributors globally.
