Monday, 02 April 2012 07:51 AM

Beauty company Coty said on Monday it had offered to buy cosmetics direct seller Avon Products for $10 billion.

Coty, known for fragrances for such celebrities as Beyonc√© and Lady Gaga, said it has been “unsuccessful” in getting Avon to talk about its offer, but said it had no plans to make a hostile bid.

Coty was offering $23.25 per Avon share, or a 20 percent premium over Friday’s closing price of $19.36 on the New York Stock Exchange.
