Arvind has sealed a deal to purchase a 49% interest in Calvin Klein India, according to sources familiar with the deal. The transaction is valued at INR100 crore, wrote The Economic Times.

The stake that Arvind acquired was jointly owned by the Murjani Group and American private equity firm Matrix Partners. Murjani held a 25% stake in the venture while Matrix held the remaining 24%, the report detailed.
