Profile of Eddie Bauer: a longestablished outdoor outfitter
published in Issue 34, 3rd Quarter 2010
USA-based Eddie Bauer is a privately-held company specialising in the supply of a broad range of outdoor apparel and casual wear. Since its establishment in 1920 as a speciality sporting goods store, the company has evolved into one of the best known clothing retailers in North America.
The company's product portfolio comprises a comprehensive range of garments which are made from high quality materials and supplied in a variety of cuts, styles, colours and sizes to satisfy the needs of a distinct customer base.
Attempts were made in the 1990s to broaden this customer base by diversifying into other product categories. However, these proved unsuccessful. As a consequence, Eddie Bauer ran into financial difficulties and eventually succumbed to bankruptcy.
In July 2009 Eddie Bauer was acquired by a USA-based investment company, Golden Gate Capital, for a cash consideration of US$286 mn. Under this ownership, the company has narrowed its product focus in a bid to capitalise on its strong outdoor heritage and revitalise its business. The success of recent product launches suggests that it is well on the road to recovery.
