COFCO International Limited Completes Noble Agri Acquisition
COFCO International Limited is pleased to announce that the purchase of the remaining 49% share of Noble Agri Ltd. has been successfully closed. The completion of the deal, initially announced on December 23, 2015, brings COFCO group’s ownership, including indirect holding through its affiliates, to 100%. COFCO International Limited is a consortium comprising of COFCO, a leading supplier of diversified products in the Chinese agricultural and food products industry and other international investors.
Following closing, the company will take the name of COFCO Agri Ltd.
“I want to thank everyone on our team for all they’ve done to make this such a seamless acquisition,” said Mr. Matt Jansen, CEO of COFCO Agri Ltd. “The closing of the acquisition marks a major milestone. Progress like this does not happen without a consistent, concerted effort at every level of the Company. Together, we are going to make COFCO Agri the most trusted brand in the global agri-business industry.”
The new COFCO Agri, with 45 asset locations in 29 countries, generated sales of nearly $17 billion last year, and delivers 47 million tones of products globally.
Patrick Yu, President of COFCO Corp., commented: “From the initial acquisition in April 2014 to the purchase of the remaining share at the end of December to the closing today, COFCO Agri is moving rapidly to take its place as a multi-flag world-class global agri-business. Performance across all business units has improved dramatically since June of last year, and we expect to see further improvement in 2016.”
