L'Oreal (LRLCF) says it would make sense to buy out Nestle's (NSRGY) large stake in the company.

Nestle has to give first crack at the block of shares repping 29% of L'Oreal to the Bettencourt family due to the terms of a shareholder agreement which expires in April.

Analysts think the Nestle could use the cash infusion to help it prep for a decent-sized acquisition.

Shares of both L'Oreal and Nestle are up over 2% in Paris trading.
