More on the strategic partnership with Chemist Warehouse

The strategic partnership with Chemist Warehouse is not news to BWX shareholders.

Earlier this year, BWX announced a strategic partnership with Chemist Warehouse Group. Under the agreement, BWX will become a platinum supplier to Chemist Warehouse.

The 5-year commercial partnership will see the entire range of BWX products (Sukin, Andalou, Mineral Fusion and private-label brand Life Basics) available through the Chemist Warehouse online store.

In addition, BWX’s brands will have an increased presence in Chemist Warehouse stores with expanded shelf space for its natural products.

The company’s management highlighted the partnership is expected to result in positive earnings-per-share (EPS) growth.

In return, Chemist Warehouse will gain an initial equity stake of 0.6% in BWX. The holding is subject to increase to 2.4% of the BWX share capital, based on an agreement of performance targets.

BWX issued the first tranche of shares in March, equating to 881,613 shares.
