Beauty is in the eye of the acquiror

Private Equity

An analysis of the acquisition by GPF Capital of beauty and household products company Quimi Romar highlights some of the trends currently influencing private equity M&A deals.

Oaklins’ specialists José Falgás and Nicholas Walker reflect on the characteristics of this transaction as well as on key themes in the market today, such as secondary buyouts and strategic synergies.

We are looking forward to seeing how GPF Capital develops the next stage of this project that started with the integration process of both Quimi Romar and another Spanish target acquired simultaneously, capitalizing on the opportunity to pursue a consolidation process in this sector. JOSÉ FALGÁS, PARTNER, OAKLINS, SPAIN

Aligning conflicts of interest in secondary buyouts

The importance of aligning conflicts of interest in secondary buyouts is also considered. With a growing number of private equity firms selling investments to other PE firms, it’s necessary to take into account the particular challenges facing management teams and their advisors in such deals.
