A new deal could see Lily O’Brien’s sell for in the region of €50 million.
Carlyle Cardinal Ireland (CCI), has entered into exclusive talks with an unnamed bidder to sell the Lily O’Brien’s chocolate company, reports the Irish Times.
CCI - a fund jointly owned and run by US firm Carlyle and the Irish-owned Cardinal Capital group, paid in the region of €15 million three years ago for control of the Irish chocolatier, which was founded 25 years ago.
Earlier this year, CCI reportedly hired IBI Corporate Finance to find a buyer for the major exporter of chocolate, confectionery and desserts.
