Chartreuse & Mont Blanc will pay Quicksilver $147 million

According to a press release, the French company Chartreuse & Mont Blanc has purchased the winter sports equipment company Rossignol Group from Quicksilver, Inc.

Rossignol’s Mountain Center headquarters, which is also over the brands Dynastar, Look and Lange, is located in Kimball Junction.

Quicksilver, Inc., located in Huntington Beach, California, acquired Rossignol and established the Mountain Center in 2005. It announced the intended sale of Rossignol in January.

Bruno Cercley, head of Chartreuse & Mont Blanc, is a former CEO of Rossignol.

The proposed transaction value, according to the release, is nearly $147 million. Quicksilver plans to use the money to "repay existing indebtedness." The deal is expected to close this fall.

The Mountain Center in Kimball Junction declined to comment on the deal, and Bruce Thomas, Quicksilver vice president of investor relations, did not return telephone messages by deadline.
