Fladgate is delighted to have advised Sylphar N.V. on its acquisition of majority stakes in the UK companies Pro Teeth Whitening Co Ltd and Nutravita Ltd. Fladgate worked closely with Sylphar’s Belgian lawyers, Argo Business Law Group.
Sylphar, which is backed by the private equity firm Vendis Capital, is a fast-growing over-the-counter consumer healthcare business based in Deurle, Belgium. Sylphar identified the acquisitions of PTW and Nutravita as providing an ideal strategic opportunity to enhance its e-commerce platform and to bolster its management team with the addition of the two principal founders, Arash and Babak Peyami.
Corporate partner Jamie Hamilton led the transaction for Fladgate, assisted by corporate associate Michael Beaber, commercial and IP associate Michelle Waknine, employment associate Louise Gibson and senior real estate associate Roland Brandman.
Jamie Hamilton commented: “We were delighted to be able to assist Sylphar and Vendis Capital with these two simultaneous acquisitions, and it was good to work with Argo. This is another example of our team’s ability to advise overseas buyers of UK assets as well as their private equity investors”.
