Nestlé has entered exclusive negotiations with a consortium led by EQT and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority over the sale of its skin-health unit that would value the business at 10.2bn Swiss francs ($10.1bn).

KEY FACTS

--- Nestlé said the sale is expected to close in the second half of the year.

--- It includes face-care products Cetaphil and Proactiv.

--- The company launched the review of its skin-health unit last September.

--- Nestlé established its skin-health unit in 2014 after taking full control of Galderma.

Why This Matters

The move is the latest step in a portfolio shuffle launched by CEO Mark Schneider that has geared the Swiss packaged food giant's product mix toward coffee, plant-based food and vitamins.
