Pinard Beauty Pack and IK Investment Partners Acquire Lablabo

The Private Equity team advised Pinard Beauty Pack and its majority shareholder, the investment fund IK Investment Partners, on the acquisition of Lablabo, a specialist manufacturer of “airless” bottles and dispensing systems.

Pinard Beauty Pack is a manufacturer of high-end plastic bottles based in Martignat, France. The company was taken over by IK Investment Partners two years ago and this strategic acquisition will be Pinard Beauty’s first external growth transaction.

Lablabo, a company based in France’s Haute-Savoie region, specializes in the manufacture of "airless" vials and dispensing systems (making it possible to contain certain solutions, such as hormonal gels, without alteration) for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, veterinary and food industries. The acquisition allows Pinard Beauty to expand its offer to the pharmaceutical packaging market.

The Goodwin team was led by partners Maxence Bloch and Frédéric Guilloux and associate Benjamin Garçon.
