Sinister, a mixed martial arts apparel and accessories company, has been acquired by Authentic Brands Group.
ABG recently signed CMT Sourcing, an affiliate of PTX Performance Products in Ontario, for Sinister. ABG also plans to introduce the brand to additional foreign markets, as well as expand product categories within the U.S.
"This acquisition completes our mixed martial arts stable of brands that will now reach all tiers of distribution," says Jamie Salter, chief executive of Authentic Brands Group. "Not only is Sinister's distribution at Kmart and Sears highly appealing, but they have a world-class partnership with Hybrid, one of the best-in-class apparel licensees in the business."
Authentic Brands' other MMA holdings include TapouT, TapouT Pro, TapouT MPS, TapouT Vintage, Silver Star Casting Company, Iron Star and Hitman Fight Gear.
