SC Johnson to buy out promoters in AllOut for Rs 200 cr
7th May 2005: SC Johnson is buying out Aryas, the local promoters of Karamchand Appliances (KAPL), which owns the mosquito repellent brand AllOut. SC Johnson has 50% equity in the company. Though the deal amount stands undisclosed, it could be substantial, given the price of the earlier stake acquisition. AllOut is one of the leading domestic brands in its category.

The US-based consumer packaged goods company, SC Johnson had acquired 50% in KAPL two years ago in what was believed to be a Rs 180-crore deal. Given the growth of the company and the usual mark-up which is used on the sales value of a brand, the deal size for acquiring the remaining holding in the company is estimated to be at least Rs 200 crore.

According to sources, the resident shareholders of the Delhi-based KAPL will offload their remaining 50% equity holding to SC Johnson Products, a subsidiary of SC Johnson. AllOut is estimated to be a Rs 180-200 crore brand and is one of the main players in the refill vapouriser segment of the mosquito repellent industry in the country.

The buyout will see and overhaul of the top management team of KAPL. When SC Johnson had picked up its 50% stake in the company, the organisational structure was left unchanged and Bimal Arya who was the MD, continued in the same position. With this transaction, the status of SC Johnson Products will change from an operating company to a holding-cum-operating company. In the current deal, the Arya family members along with the Malik family are selling their equity stake to SC Johnson.

According to unconfirmed reports, SC Johnson has also decided to consolidate its consumer products business in India under KAPL. The buzz is that KAPL will be engaged in marketing and distribution of any future launch of products from SC Johnsonís global product portfolio.
