Sale on cards for Crystal Jade Group

L Catterton, a private equity fund backed by luxury goods giant LVMH, is said to be considering selling its majority stake in Asian restaurant chain Crystal Jade Group.

L Catterton, a merger of L Capital Asia and American private equity firm Catterton, acquired a 90 per cent stake in Crystal Jade in May 2014, estimated to have cost about US$100 million.

In June the following year, Standard Chartered Private Equity bought a minority shareholding for $52 million.
