KPS netted a 15 times cash-on-cash return and a 120 percent internal rate of return for the turnaround.

Paul, Weiss advised KPS on both the original acquisition and the sale of Attends. The Paul, Weiss team included corporate partners Angelo Bonvino and Thomas V. de la Bastide III and counsel Didier Malaquin; tax partner David W. Mayo; environmental partner Gaines Gwathmey; litigation partner Aidan Synnott; employee benefits partner Robert C. Fleder, counsel Reuven Falik; real estate partner Peter E.
