The combination would create one of the largest apparel makers in the world, with estimated global revenue of $4.6 billion, the companies said in a statement.

Phillips-Van Heusen, which owns Calvin Klein and IZOD, said it expects the purchase to boost earnings before it realizes one-time costs and accounting charges related to the deal.

Under the terms of the deal, Phillips-Van Heusen,  will pay Apex €1.9 billion in cash and €276 million worth of PVH common stock. PVH will assume €100 million in Tommy Hilfiger’s debt.
