Beauty Brand Makeover Tips: What Drives Value in M&A


"Beauty Brand Makeover Tips: What Drives Value in M&A"

There continues to be a steady stream of beauty brands being acquired or invested in by either the global majors or private equity funds.

The transactions that are announced represent a relatively small number of the beauty brands who would be interested in selling or taking on investment funds. Often the stumbling block is the gap in valuation expectations between seller and buyer. 

What should you expect when you consider selling your precious brand or raising funds? What's going through the buyers / the investors mind? What can you do to maximise value either in the short or the long term?

Tim Leach, MD Baylor Klein, has been helping beauty brand owners to navigate these questions over the last 15 years. Over that time he has worked with the owners on the sales of Charles Worthington, The Sanctuary Spa, Fudge Haircare, Liz Earle, Bulldog, Ren and ESPA and amongst others, helped acquire St Tropez, Sexy Hair, Kenra and Alterna and recently completed the minority investment for Deciem by Estee Lauder. 

Interest in the beauty sector shows no signs of abating. It's a really exciting time to create and own a brand. It's potentially a great way to generate significant personal value.
