Advanstar Communications, a portfolio company of several PE firms, has agreed to buy fashion event organizer ENK International. Advanstar is a global marketing, media and events company providing integrated solutions for the fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports industries, with a portfolio of 141 events, 60 publications and 233 electronic products. ENK organizes fashion events in New York, Las Vegas, Europe and Asia, and will expand Advanstar's presence in those regions. Veronis Suhler Stevenson led a $1.142 billion acquisition for parent company Advanstar Holdings in 2007, and was joined by co-sponsors Citigroup Private Equity and New York Life Capital Partners. Forstmann Little & Company is on the sell-side, having acquired ENK in a 2006 corporate divestiture.
