Apax Funds To Sell LR Health & Beauty Systems To A Consortium; Terms Undisclosed

Funds advised by Apax Partners said Sunday that they have reached an agreement to sell LR Health & Beauty Systems to a consortium. The consortium consists of private equity firms Bregal Capital and Quadriga Capital.

LR Health & Beauty Systems markets cosmetics, personal hygiene products, dietary supplements, perfumes and jewellery through the direct sales channel. The new shareholders will support LR Group in expanding its national and international activities.

The transaction is subject to approval by the relevant anti-trust authorities. The parties agreed not to disclose the sale price.

Apax Funds bought into LR in November 2004, and then gradually acquired a majority share. During the period of the Apax Funds' investment, LR's sales rose from around €180 million (2004) to approximately €230 million (2011). Between 2004 and 2012 the number of sales partners increased from about 190,000 to about 300,000. The number of staff increased from circa 570 to around 1,000.
