Briggs entered into a definitive stock and asset purchase agreement with KPS Capital Partners on July 20. Under the terms of the agreement, an affiliate of KPS formed for purposes of this transaction agreed to acquire substantially allof the Briggs & Stratton assets and assume certain customer, employee and vendor liabilities. The sale agreement was subject to higher or better bids from other potential purchasers, but on Sept. 16, a bankruptcy court judge approved the sale to KPS.

The deal was expected to close within 10 days.
