South Africa: Pharmaceutical group Dis-Chem bids $23mln for Baby City

South Africa’s pharmaceutical group Dis-Chem announced it has entered in talks to buy the baby care product retailer Baby City. The group, co-founded in 1978 by Ivan and Lynette Saltzman, proposes to pay R430 million ($23.2 million) for the acquisition.

The transaction includes a loan to Baby City’s shareholders and a guarantee to ensure the company’s liquidity in a context marked by the spread of the covid-19 pandemic. The closing of the transaction is subject to the approval of the South African Competition Authority and is expected to take place by the end of October 2020.
