On September 29, 2017, India's largest Fast Moving Consumer Goods company Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) has entered into a share purchase agreement with Kimberly-Clark Corporation, U.S.A. (KCC) for divestment of HUL’s 50% shareholding in Kimberly-Clark Lever Private Limited (KCL) in favour of KCC.

Vaish Associates advised HUL on all facets pertaining to the sale of shares which involved drafting, negotiating and finalizing of definitive agreements.

With a heritage of over 80 years in India, HUL is the market leader in Indian consumer products with presence in over 20 consumer categories such as soaps, detergents, shampoos, skin care, toothpastes, deodorants, cosmetics, tea, coffee, packaged foods, ice cream, and water purifiers. HUL is a subsidiary of Unilever PLC.
