Johnson Winter & Slattery has advised its long standing client, Blackmores, on its divestment in Global Therapeutics.
Blackmores sold Global Therapeutics to McPherson (whose portfolio of brands includes Manicare, Lady Jayne, Dr. LeWinn’s, A'kin, Swisspers, Multix, Moosehead and Maseur) at an enterprise value of $27 million.
Under the deal, McPherson will acquire Blackmore’s Fusion Health and Oriental Botanical brands, which has a product range that draws upon traditional Chinese medicine in combination with contemporary herbal treatments.
The Johnson Winter & Slattery team was led by Partner Jeremy Davis, alongside Senior Associate Isabella Bosworth, and Associates Will Mason and Rebecca Proudman. Partner Ravi de Fonseka advised on the IP / IT aspects of this transaction and Prashanth Kainthaje advised on the tax aspects.
Jeremy Davis said the firm was delighted to have supported Blackmores on this strategic divestment.
“The sale of Global Therapeutics closely follows Blackmore’s announcement that it would be divesting in all non-core brands in its portfolio. This transaction will enable Blackmores to focus on its core business, while at the same time giving Global Therapeutics the opportunity to grow under McPherson."
Thompson Geer advised McPherson on this transaction.
