 LVMH, Catterton and Groupe Arnault form global consumer focused investment firmThree prominent global companies – LVMH, the world leader in high-quality products, Catterton, the leading consumer-focused private equity firm and Groupe Arnault, the family holding company of Bernard Arnault, entered into an agreement to create a global consumer-focused private equity firm called L Catterton.

L Catterton will become the largest global consumer-focused investment firm with six distinct and complementary fund strategies focusing on consumer buyout and growth investments across North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America, in addition to prime commercial real estate globally.

This new entity will combine Catterton’s existing North American and Latin American private equity operations with LVMH and Groupe Arnault’s existing European and Asian private equity and real estate operations, currently conducted under the L Capital and L Real Estate franchises. The agreement defines that L Catterton will be 60 percent owned by the partners of L Catterton and 40 percent jointly owned by LVMH and Groupe Arnault.

L Catterton expects to grow its assets under management to more than $12 billion after various successor funds are closed. L Catterton will be poised to leverage its unique global network and expertise to partner with consumer businesses in all major consumer markets.

L Catterton will be headquartered in Greenwich, CT and London, with regional offices across Europe, Asia and Latin America. L Catterton will be led by Global Co-CEOs J. Michael Chu and Scott A. Dahnke, currently Managing Partners at Catterton. Each fund will continue to be managed by its own dedicated team in their respective locations across Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Mr. Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH and Groupe Arnault said, “L Catterton will provide investors with a unique value creation platform, bringing together our global network and industry expertise with Catterton’s long-standing operational approach to building value in consumer investments.”

Mr. Chu said, “The breadth of our collective expertise will be second to none in the consumer industry, and we look forward to benefitting from the strength and global reach of the team at L Capital and L Real Estate as we continue to seek out investment opportunities with significant growth potential.”

“Mr. Dahnke said, “Together, Catterton and L Capital will create a global consumer investing franchise with unmatched access to resources in the industry. We expect this combination to further our mission of investing in high growth opportunities in categories with attractive consumer economics.” The transaction is expected to close early in 2016, subject to customary regulatory and certain investor approvals.
