Energizer joins sponsors in fight against breast cancer
ST. LOUIS In an effort to help support the fight against breast cancer, Energizer has joined the roster of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure National Sponsors and is pampering cancer survivors with its traveling mini spa.
Energizer, which began working with Komen three years ago, is taking that support to a new level as a National Series Sponsor of the Komen Race for the Cure. This year, the company is sending its mobile mini spa, dubbed the Energizer ReTreat, to 17 communities. It is stopping at local cancer treatment centers and Komen Race for the Cure events. Guests will be treated to free manicures and massages at the Energizer ReTreat.
The Energizer ReTreat staff will distribute information about breast cancer and the importance of early detection, and visitors will receive Energizer Bunny pink nail polish and Keep Going pink nail files.
Beiersdorf acquires majority stake in C-Bons, bolsters foothold in China
HAMBURG, Germany Beiersdorf AG is bolstering its foothold in China by acquiring, through its Austrian 100 percent affiliate Beiersdorf CEE Holding GmbH, a majority stake in C-Bons Hair Care.
Once the deal closes, which is expected to occur by the end of 2007, Beiersdorf will have an 85 percent stake in the company. Global Source will maintain a 15 percent stake in the business for an interim period of at least two years after the closing. After that period, Beiersdorf has the option to acquire the remaining 15 percent stake.
Wu Yong-nan, current president of C-Bons Hair Care, will become chief executive officer of the new company at the close of the deal. Werner Brettschneider, Beiersdorf’s newly appointed president for Greater China, will become chairman of the new entity.
The C-Bons Hair Care business complements Beiersdorf’s skin care business and its hair care products.
“We are very pleased to have taken another significant step forward in the China market,” stated Thomas-B. Quaas, Beiersdorf chief executive officer. “C-Bons Hair Care is an ideal extension of our already successful Nivea business, adding established domestic consumer brands and strong market positions.”
