Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of Avon Products, Inc.

NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Avon Products, Inc. ("Avon" or the "Company") (NYSE: AVP) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Coty Inc. ("Coty"). 

On April 2, 2012, it was announced that Coty had offered to acquire all outstanding shares of the Avon common stock.  Under the proposal, Avon shareholders would receive $23.25 in cash per share held.  The Avon board of directors rejected the offer.
