THE DETAILS Tony Buffin, former CEO of Holland & Barrett has also been linked to the deal as an advisor. The deadline for bids set by the Takeover Panel is May 15, 2023.
THE WHY? The owner of Cult Beauty has suffered since its flotation on the London stock exchange, and the board is widely expected to recommend a sale to either Apollo or another bidder, Sky reports.
