Tristar is the second DRTV company in recent years to sell off its brands. IdeaVillage shook up the industry in March of 2019 when it sold the Finishing Touch and Flawless line to Church & Dwight in a deal valued at up to $900 million. In that deal, IdeaVillage received $475 million in cash with the possibility of earning an additional $425 million based on certain sales targets.
