TORONTO — An Ontario Superior Court judge has granted an order adding Brooks Brothers Canada Ltd. to its parent company’s U.S. bankruptcy proceedings, paving the way for the sale of the luxury clothing retailer’s Canadian assets. 

The order, issued by Justice Glenn Hainey under the cross-border insolvencies section of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, allows Brooks Brothers Group Inc. to act as the Canadian retailer’s foreign representative.

It also recognizes the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Chapter 11 restructuring process as the foreign main proceeding and grants a stay against debtors. 

The court approval clears the sale of the 202-year-old clothier’s Canadian assets — mainly inventory — to SPARC Group LLC, which purchased Brooks Brothers and its subsidiaries and affiliates for $325 million last month.

SPARC, which stands for Simon Properties Authentic Retail Concepts, is a joint venture between Authentic Brands Group and Simon Property Group.
