Hutchison also said that the Edgewell acquisition of Jack Black is also expected to open up opportunities for Edgewell to grow its personal care portfolio further in emerging categories in the US and internationally. At the same time, it will boost the strong brand equity developed by the founders of Jack Black, said Hutchison.

The Edgewell acquisition of Jack Black is anticipated to be wrapped up in the second quarter of the year once it gets the US antitrust clearance and meets other customary closing conditions.

Curran Dandurand – CEO of Jack Black, commenting on Edgewell acquisition of Jack Black, said: “We are delighted to be joining Edgewell’s family of brands. This is an excellent home for Jack Black, and we look forward to continuing to drive strong growth in North America and expanding our global presence.
