16. Related parties


  (a) The Group’s main related parties are as follows:


Key management personnel


Other related parties include close family members of key management personnel and entities that are controlled or significantly influenced by those key management personnel or their close family members.


Bendon Group


On April 30, 2021, the Group signed the Bendon Share Sale Agreement with JADR Holdings Pty Limited as trustee for the JDR Family Trust No 2, an entity affiliated with Justin Davis-Rice, and Matana Intimates Holdings Trustee Limited as trustee for the Matana Intimates Holding Trust, an entity affiliated with Anna Johnson (together, the “Buyers”), and simultaneously consummated the Bendon Sale contemplated thereby. Pursuant to the Bendon Share Sale Agreement, the Group sold all of the issued share capital in Bendon together with any accrued rights free from encumbrances for the consideration described below on the terms and conditions set out in the Bendon Share Sale Agreement.


Because the Buyers are related parties of the Group, the Group adopted strict governance and information protocols to ensure independent consideration and assessment of the Buyers’ proposal and the Bendon Share Sale Agreement. The Group’s independent directors formed an independent committee of the board of directors, which considered, on behalf of the Group, the Bendon Sale. The consideration paid for the share capital of Bendon was determined through negotiations between the independent committee and the Buyers.


Following the sales of fully owned subsidiary (the “Bendon Group”), as disclosed in note 15, the Group is entitled to a tiered percentage of its net profits. The group also entered into the “Naked Facility” and “FOH service agreement” with Bendon on April 30, 2021.


As a result, Bendon Group became the related party on April 30, 2021.
