Albéa acquires Laminate Tubes Industries SA Proprietary Ltd (LTI)

Dear Investors,

We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Laminate Tubes Industries SA Proprietary Ltd (LTI), which operates a facility in South Africa. This is our first plant in Africa!
LTI manufactures laminate tubes for oral care and serves major brands GSK and Unilever, which are among Albéa’s Top 10 customers. This new industrial platform will help Albéa support their geographical expansion. 

Laminate Tubes are a strategic priority for Albéa, with ambitious growth plans for our Hair Dye, Cosmetic and Oral Care business. Although Africa still represents a small share of the global market, its forecasted growth rate makes it an attractive market and many of our strategic customers and major brands are setting up facilities there. 

Albéa is delighted to welcome LTI into the Group.

Gennevilliers, France, January 26, 2018. Albéa S.A. and its affiliates (the “Albéa Group”) announced today that Hercule Debtco S.à r.l., a société à responsabilité limitée incorporated under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (the “Issuer”), intends to offer €150 million in aggregate principal amount of its Senior HoldCo Pay-If-You-Can Notes due 2024 (the “Notes”). The offering of the Notes forms part of the financing for the proposed acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of the Albéa Group by a subsidiary of the Issuer. The Issuer is indirectly owned by funds affiliated with or managed by PAI Partners.
The Acquisition remains subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including antitrust clearance in certain jurisdictions, and the performance of certain closing actions. Pending completion of the Acquisition, the gross proceeds of the offering will be deposited in an escrow account. If the Acquisition is not consummated on or prior to August 31, 2018, the Notes will be subject to a special mandatory redemption. Upon release of the proceeds of the offering from escrow, the Issuer will use the proceeds to fund, in part, the purchase price of the Acquisition and the payment of certain transaction costs. A certain amount of the proceeds will be retained by the Issuer.

Albéa Beauty Holdings S.A. Refinancing


Paris, France, March 9, 2017. Albéa Beauty Holdings S.A. (together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, “Albéa”) announced today that it has mandated BNP Paribas S.A. and Goldman Sachs International as Joint Global Coordinators and, together with Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank and HSBC Bank plc, Mandated Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners to arrange US$921.0 million senior secured credit facilities (the “Facilities”) comprising (i) a US$816.0 million 7-year covenant-lite term loan B facility which shall be split between US$ and € tranches and (ii) a US$105.0 million 6-year revolving credit facility (the “Financing”).
The proceeds from the Financing are intended to refinance the outstanding US$ denominated 8.75% bonds due 2019 and € denominated 8.375% bonds due 2019 issued by Albéa (the “Bonds”). We believe this debt refinancing will help improve our cash flow and gives us additional liquidity to operate our business, while increasing our flexibility to address strategic actions that will allow Albéa to grow in the future. In addition it will also be used to refinance certain other amounts due under the Bonds, to make a dividend, redemption or return of capital to its shareholders, to repay certain other existing indebtedness of Albéa and to fund transaction expenses. We expect closing of the Financing to occur by the end of April.
