Represented a large, privately owned yarn manufacturer in its acquisition of one of the largest suppliers in the United States and Canada of private-label, cotton-based consumer products used in health, beauty, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications.  After an extensive negotiation over a 5-month period with the supplier's owners in the United States, Switzerland, and Panama, the client closed on its acquisition of the supplier, which had manufacturing facilities in New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, and Canada. Apart from the acquired operations, the client maintains 24 plants which produce cotton and cotton-blend yarns for clothing and home textiles.  This acquisition is significant as it represents the client's first acquisition outside its traditional industry.
