Sea & Ski Acquired by Australian Firm.(Brief Article)
June, 2000  

MIAMI -- Sea & Ski, a sun care brand with high name recognition but
little market share, has been acquired by an Australian company eager
to expand its presence in the United States. F.H. Faulding & Co., an
Australian pharmaceutical concern that has the license to the Banana
Boat sunscreen brand in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Asia,
reportedly does not plan to introduce Sea & Ski products in those
markets. Instead the company will seek to build up the brand in the
U.S., and will also use established Sea & Ski sales channels for other
products, ...

The Consumer Products division streamlined operations in 2003 to focus
on its core Nutraceuticals and OTC businesses. The personal wash
business was sold to Symex Holdings Ltd and the division?s US
sunscreens business was sold to Pathfinder Management, Inc. in March
2003. Revenues for the discontinued businesses were flat half over
half because increased seasonal revenues from sales Sea & Ski?
sunscreens to the US were offset by lower contributions from the
personal wash and Shepparton contract. EBIT loss improved in 2H03 over
the first half resulting from a positive US sunscreens contribution,
offset by lower personal wash and Shepparton contract EBIT results.
