Danone acquires Whitewave Foods
Danone (DB FP) finalised its acquisition of Whitewave on 12 April 2017. As a Whitewave shareholder, the AtlasTrend Healthy Lifestyle Fund has received US$56.25 per share in cash and the company has ceased trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
Emmanuel Faber, CEO of Danone stated that “Danone and WhiteWave are a perfect match to build a global leader leveraging consumer trends and expectations for healthier and more sustainable eating and drinking choices.”
Obviously, we are pleased with this result for the Trend Fund as our entry price was US$39.80 per share, which meant that our USD return was 41.1% for this investment.
Will Whole Foods Market sell itself? Albertsons to acquire Sprouts Farmers Markets? What’s in store for the organic food industry?
