Haymaker Acquisition Corp. Announces Combination with OneSpaWorld

Haymaker “cruising” to the finish line?

Haymaker Acquisition Corp. (HYAC), announced Thursday evening that they have entered into a definitive agreement with OneSpaWorld (“OSW”), a global provider of health and wellness products and services onboard cruise ships and in destination resorts around the world, with the transaction being valued at $948 million.  OSW is being sold by Steiner Leisure Limited (“Steiner”), a portfolio company of L Catterton, a global consumer-focused private equity firm.

OSW’s facilities and staff offer guests a comprehensive suite of premium health, fitness, beauty, and wellness products and services onboard 161 cruise ships and at 66 destination resorts globally.

Quick takes:  This transaction is right up Steven Heyer’s alley (the CEO & Chairman of Haymaker), having a ton of experience in consumer and consumer related products via Outback Steakhouse, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Coca-Cola.   Furthermore, the PIPE is being done at $10.00 (good), and it’s in a category that has enjoyed consistent growth and one in which OneSpaWorld dominates (84% market share). But are they getting this company at a discount?  Well, that slide is pretty hard to interpret. If the point was to obfuscate, then they succeeded.  It’s difficult to make heads or tails of it if you do not have any depth in this category (slide 35).  However, health & wellness is an attractive and growing segment and OneSpaWorld is clearly the market leader.

By way of background, OneSpaWorld (originally Steiner Leisure Ltd.) was acquired via buyout by L Catterton, in 2015 for $925 million. Steiner Leisure was then split into One Spa, Cortiva Institute (which trains masseuses and skin-care professionals), and product lines such as Elemis and Ideal Image.

Additionally, it’s interesting that for a company called “OneSpaWorld”, all of senior management is made up entirely of men and they don’t look like they visit the spa on the regular. Well, maybe Glenn.
