Avon faces uncertain road ahead, sources say

Embattled cosmetics company Avon works on a turnaround

by Lauren Hirsch and Anthony Valentino

In January, Mergermarket and DealReporter broke news that that Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) had been speaking to TPG Capital about a possible transaction, as the embattled cosmetics company worked on a turnaround.

Sources told us that a leveraged buyout was a possibility but would carry a substantial amount of risk. Avon could also look to shut down its US-based direct sales business to partially address its underperformance.  One day after Avon surprised shareholders by postponing a long awaited annual investor day, WSJ reported Avon was exploring strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of its North America business.

We share our investigative analysis of the company’s options going forward.
