On December 19, Belgium-based Greenyard announced that it is in advanced negotiations to acquire Dole Food Company, Inc.
At this stage, a definitive agreement has not been reached, and there can be no assurance that these negotiations will culminate in a transaction between the two companies. Greenyard has secured appropriate financing, and is confident in its ability to complete the transaction with a balanced financing approach should a definitive agreement be reached.
Greenyard stated that it will provide further comment related to this potential combination when there is news to share.
Greenyard is a global provider of fresh and prepared fruits and vegetables and growing media. It has more than 8,000 employees in 25 countries.
