Fonterra submits Beingmate partial tender offer

  • min read

Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited today submitted to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange a partial tender offer to acquire up to 20 per cent of leading Chinese infant formula manufacturer, Beingmate Baby & Child Food Company Ltd.

The offer will be open for 30 days, from 12 February until 3.00pm (China time) 13 March.

It is expected that the result of the partial tender offer will be announced on 18 March.  

 

Last August, Fonterra and Beingmate announced that they intended to form a global partnership to help meet China’s growing demand for infant formula.  The partnership will create a fully integrated global supply chain from the farm gate direct to China’s consumers, using Fonterra’s milk pools and manufacturing sites in New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. It is intended to increase the volume and value of Fonterra’s ingredients and branded products exported to China.
