Client Success Stories
Citrus Fruit | Transaction advisory service for major acquisition
The client required guidance in its proposed investment in a 40-year-old, family-owned Spanish based business dedicated to the collection, packing and exporting of top-quality citrus fruits such as oranges, clementine and mandarins to European retail customers.
The company operated in a large facility equipped with cutting edge automotive technology, producing a wide range of packing materials for both its own brands and personalised brands of its clients. The facility had a production capacity of 80,000 tonnes per year and 15% of the fruit derived from land owned by an existing shareholder holding company.
The owners of the company decided to divest a majority of its equity to a strategic investor, who contributed its resources to expanding and growing the business and better exploiting new international sales and market opportunities.
Farrelly & Mitchell was retained as a financial advisor for the majority sale of the company’s equity to European and Middle East investors.
Farrelly & Mitchell sourced a strategic buyer for the company who acquired a majority interest in the company for €58.5 million consideration.
