Paris, July 3, 2014 - Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP has advised the management team of Ontex NV, the Belgian leading global producer of disposable personal hygiene solutions, on the initial public offering of its shares on Euronext Brussels. The offering was launched on June 11, 2014 and ended on June 24, 2014 for a first trading day on June 25, 2014. The final offer price set for the IPO is 18 per share.
The Belgian company was valued at 1.8 billion by the market on June 25, 2014. The gross proceeds for Ontex resulting from the sale of new shares are 325 million. This will initially be used to reduce debt.

The Curtis team that advised Ontex's management was led by partner Henri Pieyre de Mandiargues and associates Félix Huon and Marie-Muriel Barthelet.
