Sanofi to divest its stake in the Yves Rocher Group

Thursday, July 5, 2012 02:21 PM

Global pharmaceutical company Sanofi has divested its direct and indirect stake of approximately 19.3% in the Yves Rocher Group, a company focused on cosmetics, home care products and clothing, to Société Financière des Laboratoires de Cosmétologie Yves Rocher, subject to certain closing conditions.

Upon closing of this transaction, which is expected to take place before the end of the third quarter, the Rocher family will control more than 95% of the Group's capital. The transaction consideration is undisclosed.

Sanofi acquired a stake in the Yves Rocher Group's capital in 1973 and divested part of its stake in the early 2000s.

"We are pleased to have been able to support the development of the Yves Rocher Group for about 40 years,” said Jérôme Contamine, executive vice president and CFO of Sanofi. "The decision to divest is in line with the Group’s objectives to focus on its strategic activities.”
