Prestige Brands announces DenTek acquisition
TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — Prestige Brands announced Monday that it would be acquiring DenTek Oral Care in a $225 million all-cash transaction that it expects will add $60 million to its pro forma revenues annually. The move will expand Prestige’s portfolio into the specialty oral care category.
“The acquisition of DenTek, when combined with our existing oral care products, will create our fifth $100 million platform and provide the opportunity to enter the fast-growing specialty oral care category anchored by the DenTek brand,” Prestige Brands president and CEO Ron Lombardi said. “The DenTek brand complements our existing oral care platform and fits our business model with outsourced manufacturing and distribution, allowing us to focus on our core competencies in marketing and sales.”
Prestige expects the transaction to close in the first half of 2016. Prestige’s legal counsel for the transaction was a team from Reed Smith, led by the firm’s Chicago-based partners Michelle Moore and Seth Hemming, as well as associate Bob McCann.
P&G makes for new shave experience with new Gillette Fusion ProShield with lubrication
BOSTON – According to recent studies, most guys take about 170 strokes every time they shave, and 120 of them are re-strokes over the same area of the face after the initial strokes have wiped away most of the protective shave gel. Despite all of the advances in blade technology, many guys still experience some irritation, largely due to these re-strokes.
Instead of expecting guys to change how they shave, Gillette has made its best cartridge even better with a product scheduled to reach North American store shelves in late December with more global availability in January. The new Gillette Fusion ProShield with lubrication before and after the blades shields against irritation during every shave – no matter how many shave strokes.
“With the latest razor technology, excessive re-stroking isn’t necessary for a close shave, but old habits are hard to break,” said Stew Taub, director of shave care R&D at Gillette. “At Gillette, we constantly look for solutions to help improve the shave for guys, and that is why we are introducing the new Fusion ProShield, with lubrication before and after the blades, to help shield from irritation during the shave. We have changed our blade cartridges so guys don’t need to change the way they shave.”
