The Charlotte Russe board unanimously approved the agreement, which is expected to be completed by Aug. 31.

“After careful consideration of a full range of strategic alternatives, including an extensive, publicly announced sale process, we are pleased to have reached this agreement with Advent, which creates substantial value for our stockholders,” said Jennifer Salopek, who chairs the board.
