Private equity firm Sun Capital Securities Group urged the board of Kellwood Co. on Thursday to immediately terminate the $1.6 billion apparel firm's debt tender offer. The board refused the request.

Kellwood on Wednesday issued a tender offer to buy back from bondholders as much as $60 million of 7.875 percent notes due next year. Holders who tender before 5 p.m. on Jan. 23 will receive the total consideration of $1,035 per $1,000 in principal of the notes tendered. Holders who tender after that, but by midnight of Feb. 6, will not receive the early tender premium and instead will get $1,005 for every $1,000 in principal. The move followed an $80 million stock repurchase last week.
