LONDON, UK: Billionaire British entrepreneur Philip Green is set to sell up to 25% of his high-street fashion brands Topman and Topshop to US investors, Britain's press reported on Tuesday, 4 December 2012.
The deal, which values the brands at £1 billion (US$1.6 billion, 1.2 billion euros), is expected to be announced within the next two days, according to the reports.

US clothing firm J Crew is believed to be the prospective buyer.
