The Danish clothing company Bestseller has reportedly agreed to purchase the British online clothing store M and M Direct from TA Associates for a price of around 1.3 billion kroner.

Bestseller, which is behind a string of brands including Jack & Jones, Only, Selected, Vila and Vero Moda, has been eyeing a buy of M and M for a while now, according to Bestseller’s head of communication, Mogens Werge.

“The plan is for M and M to continue as is,” Werge told Jyllands-Posten newspaper. “The company has some knowledge and experience from online trading that we can learn from.”
