Private equity firm Clayton Dubilier & Rice LLP will acquire a stake in London-based discount retailer B&M Retail Ltd.

B&M, which operates stores in north England, Scotland, northern Ireland and Wales, will continue to operate with its existing management team.

Clayton Dubilier closed a $1.05 billion deal for David’s Bridal in October. The firm also bought Wilsonart International Holdings LLC in August. 

Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Clifford Chance, Debevoise & Plimpton, Ernst & Young and Bain & Co. advised Clayton Dubilier on the deal. Rothschild, Allen & Overy, PricewaterhouseCoopers and OC&C advised B&M on the transaction. Terms, including the size of the stake, were not disclosed.
