More M&A may be in store in the contract development and manufacturing space, with the founder of India’s Strides group apparently open to divesting his holding in the UK-based Sterling Pharma Solutions, at least going by what some deal street insiders say.
Consumer health product industry veteran executive Paul Sturman takes the helm at Nature's Bounty Co. on the day that private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. LP closed its acquisition of a controlling interest in the nutritional and health and wellness product manufacturer from Carlyle Group LP. The Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based firm on Sept. 28 said Sturman has more than 30 years of experience in the sector, including leading Pfizer Inc.'s consumer product group and is a past chairman of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association. (Also see "KKR Steers Nature's Bounty With Carlyle In Back Seat After Seven-Year Ride" - HBW Insight, 24 Jul, 2017.) Sturman succeeds Steve Cahillane, the second CEO Carlyle appointed in 2014 after acquiring Nature's Bounty, then NBTY Inc., in 2010 and taking the firm private. (Also see "Carlyle Group Gives NBTY Helm To Former Coca-Cola Executive Cahillane" - Pink Sheet, 20 Aug, 2014.)
Since acquiring Nature's Bounty in 2010 and taking the publicly traded firm private, Carlyle could have been at the helm longer than executives at the private equity firm intended or expected, exceeding the five-year plan typical for similar investments.
Lonza acquires Capsugel for $5.5bn cash, nearly twice as much as private equity firm KKR paid Pfizer for it, to enhance its product development and expand the market for its contract development and manufacturing services for drug and nutritional products.
