Dabah stated: “Our transaction is expected to increase Kidpik’s revenue, cashflow and prospects, while also strengthening Kidpik’s balance sheet and significantly increasing stockholder value. I am extremely happy to fulfil my late father in-law Stanley Silverstein’s wish to make Nina a public company on the heels of the 70th anniversary of our family business.  

“As a team, we will refocus our attention on growing Nina through brand and category extensions, international expansion, the resurrection of the Delman shoe brand, and mining our extensive Nina Footwear archive for additional growth, which we believe presents great value.”  

The special committee recommended the merger, noting that Kidpik’s significant net operating loss carryforwards, estimated at $38m, are expected to be retained post-merger due to Ezra Dabah’s control of both companies.  

The transaction is subject to approvals from Kidpik and Nina Footwear stockholders and is expected to close in the third quarter of 2024.
