庶正档案|NBTY的并购史

1971年创立的Nature’s Bounty公司起先只是Arco Pharmaceutical制药的一个子公司,1977年买下纽约波西米亚的第一个生产基地,并于之后的15年先后收购了U.S.Nutrition公司、Hudson制药公司、Spiegel公司、GNC邮购业务、Good’s Natural公司、Sturdee Health ProductsBiorganic Brands公司、Beautiful Visions Inc.等。

1992年,Nature’s bounty登陆纳斯达克交易所,从此确立了全美最大维生素类产品生产商的地位。在此之后,它又收购了Prime Natural Health Laboratories公司、Holland & BarrettKNOX公司、NatureSmart公司、Synergy Plus公司、英国GNC连锁店、Rexall Sundown公司、SolgarSISU公司、Zila NutraceuticalsLeiner Health Products公司,直至2010年被凯雷集团(Carlyle Group)以40亿美元的价格私有化退市。

以下为外媒的报道全文——


Carlyle Explores Sale of $6 Billion Vitamin Maker Nature's Bounty

2017年1月6日 GMT+8 下午5:04 by Kiel Porter and Vinicy Chan

Nature’s Bounty said to be valued at about $6 billion

Separate sale of U.K.’s Holland & Barrett also said possible

Carlyle Group LP is exploring a sale of nutritional-supplements maker Nature’s Bounty Co., whose brands include “MET-Rx” and “Pure Protein,” people with knowledge of the matter said.

The private equity firm has held talks with potential advisers about selling the U.S. company, formerly known as NBTY Inc., according to the people. Nature’s Bounty could fetch as much as $6 billion in a sale, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.

While finding a buyer for the whole business is the preferred option, Carlyle also may decide to shop the international division separately, two of the people said. Holland & Barrett, based in the U.K. and founded in 1870, is the leading retailer of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements in Europe, according to Nature’s Bounty’s website.

Holland & Barrett would likely draw interest from Asian suitors as the brand is well-known in China, where it sells its products on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.’s popular Tmall e-commerce site, one person said.

Nature’s Bounty, led by President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Cahillane, generated about $3 billion in revenue last year, according to the people. A spokesman for Washington-based Carlyle declined to comment.

Carlyle agreed to buy Ronkonkoma, New York-based NBTY in September 2010 in a take-private transaction valued at about $3.8 billion. The firm used capital from two of its pools, Carlyle Partners V, the global buyout fund it raised in 2007, and Carlyle Europe Partners III, which was raised in 2006.

David Rubenstein, Carlyle’s co-founder, said in October the private equity firm plans to embark on a global fundraising tour to replenish its coffers with $100 billion over four years.

(Updates with Carlyle’s fundraising plans in final paragraph. A previous version of this story was corrected to show that Carlyle is based in Washington.)
