By way of background, Bandier operates five branded retail stores throughout the United States and an Ecommerce platform.

The Assignee is seeking a buyer for substantially all of the Assignor’s assets (the “Assets”) relating to Bandier’s platform, including but not limited to all of Bandier’s right, title and interest in equity in subsidiaries used to operate Bandier’s business, all inventory, all intellectual property (trademarks, copyrights, patents, internet properties, brand collateral, and customer and vendor data) and all accounts receivable as of the closing date of a purchase of Assets, and the assumption of certain commercial real estate leases that support Bandier’s operations. The Assignee is conducting an expedited sale process to identify the highest and best bid available for the Assets. The Assets will be transferred to a successful bidder (“Successful Bidder”) on an “AS IS, WHERE IS” basis, with no representations or warranties provided by the Assignee, as to, among other things, ownership, title, merchantability, fitness, or use.
