Time Is Ripe For Acquisitions For Estee Lauder, Market Analysts Say

March 24, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Cosmetics company Estee Lauder is expected to acquire a personal care brand, such as anti-aging and acne products manufacturer Murad Inc. or supplements and serums seller Perricone MD, according to market observers. Royal Bank of Canada and Telsey Advisory Group said the company has enough financial muscle to pull off a significant acquisition deal, with its cash balance almost doubled during the past four years. Market analyst B. Riley & Co. said Estee Lauder could also be poised to buy nail-care company Butter London. Known for expanding its business by purchasing smaller brands, such as Smashbox and Aveda Corp, Estee Lauder said it intends to source 1 percent of total sales growth from acquired companies in the next three years.
