Although Avon has a strong brand as a direct seller, that's a bit of a dinosaur in an industry that has better adapted to today's market techniques, especially social media. Avon's performance may well improve when incorporated into a larger, savvy peer.
The purchase is subject to the relevant regulatory approvals. The two companies expect it to close in early 2020.
