Gerald Stevens Inc. said yesterday that it will sell its Florafax floral wire service business and its Calyx & Corolla floral catalog business to its chief operating officer for $20 million.


Both businesses are to be sold to Equity Resource Partners Inc., a company led by Andrew W. Williams, COO for Gerald Stevens' order generation division.


The move allows Stevens, Fort Lauderdale, FL, to reduce its debt. The company has outstanding borrowing of $32 million under its credit facility.
