As part of the settlement, TTK Group bought the entire 49.87% stake of New Bridge holdings BV in the condom joint venture TTK-LIG, while the JV would sell its 49% stake in foot-care unit to Reckitt Benckiser
New Delhi: Consumer goods manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser said it settled its dispute with TTK Group in two joint ventures in India involved in condoms making and foot-care business, reports PTI.
As part of the settlement, TTK Group has bought the entire 49.87% stake of New Bridge holdings BV -- an affiliate of Reckitt Benckiser -- in the condom joint venture TTK-LIG Ltd, the company said in a statement.
On the other hand, TTK-LIG Ltd would sell its 49% stake in the foot-care joint venture, SSL-TTK Ltd to Reckitt Benckiser post FIPB clearance, it added.
The company, however, did not disclose the financial details of the transaction.
"While TTK Group would retain the company and its assets, New Bridge Holdings/Reckitt Benckiser have retained their brands (Durex, Kohinoor, Fiesta) and their PI Technology and TTK would no longer use the same," the statement said.
Commenting on the development, Reckitt Benckiser South East Asia SVP Chander Mohan Sethi said: "We are excited with the prospect of building unique initiatives around our new healthcare brands."
TTK group and Reckitt Benckiser were having serious differences over everything from nomination of directors to pricing and distribution strategy in the last one and half years.
