 A partnership with Fortune Brands

In August 2022, LDC exited its partnership with Aqualisa to US-headquartered Fortune Brands (NYSE) in a transaction that valued the company at £130m – a near-threefold increase since LDC’s original investment.

As part of the Fortune Brands group, Aqualisa will continue to scale its international presence, taking its British designed products to more markets around the world.
