Eddie Bauer Holdings Inc. may draw bids from Iconix Brand Group Inc. as well as Golden Gate Capital, sources told Bloomberg News. CCMP Capital Advisors LLC, a New York-based private equity firm, had offered an initial $202 million last month in a so-called stalking horse bid in the bankruptcy case.
Hilco Consumer Capital and Gordon Brothers Group LLC are also preparing a joint offer for the retailer, according to Bloomberg News.
The deadline for bids is Tuesday.
Eddie Bauer won court permission last week to borrow $100 million to help finance operations while it sells itself at an auction.
