Edgewell Cuts $310m Billie Deal Without FTC Incident

Executive Summary

Acquisition of value-tier, female-first razor firm Billie, Inc. – previously attempted by P&G before the US Federal Trade Commission intervened – will add a youthful, on-message brand to the Schick owner’s women’s shave portfolio. The deal follows Edgewell’s bid to acquire Harry’s in 2020, also thwarted by the FTC.
