ZURICH (Reuters) - Nestle SA has entered exclusive negotiations to sell its skin health business to a consortium led by private equity firm EQT Partners and ADIA in a deal worth 10.2 billion Swiss francs ($10.12 billion), it said on Thursday.

The proposed transaction with EQT and a unit of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) was expected to close in the second half of 2019 pending regulatory approval.

Nestle will provide an update on how it will use the proceeds and its future capital structure at that time, the world's biggest food group said in a statement.

Reuters and the Financial Times had reported on Wednesday that EQT was putting the finishing touches on the deal.

EQT and ADIA had faced competition from rival buyout funds and some industry players including a consortium of Advent and Cinven as well as U.S. private equity firm KKR & Co Inc and European fund PAI Partners, sources had said.

Nestle's skin health unit, which sells Cetaphil, was formed in 2014. The unit was put up for sale last September as Nestle tries to ditch underperforming businesses in an effort to fend off criticism from an activist investor.

Nestle Skin Health had net sales of 2.8 billion Swiss francs in 2018. Based in the Swiss city of Lausanne, it employs more than 5,000 people across 40 countries.

(Bloomberg) -- Private-equity firms notched a major win in Washington with the Trump administration paving the way for the industry to tap a massive pot of money that has long been off limits: the trillions of dollars held in Americans' retirement accounts.The Labor Department issued guidance Wednesday effectively allowing 401(k) plans to invest in buyout firms. The agency said the move will bolster investment options for consumers and let them access an asset class that can provide better returns than stocks and bonds.In a statement, Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia said the action "will help Americans saving for retirement gain access to alternative investments that often provide strong...
