Chiquita Brands International and the Cutrale-Safra group announced a definitive merger agreement. Under the merger agreement, which has been unanimously approved by the Chiquita board of directors, Cutrale-Safra will acquire all outstanding common shares of Chiquita for $14.50 per share in cash.

The transaction is valued at approximately $1.3B, including the assumption of Chiquita's net debt. The merger agreement between Cutrale-Safra and Chiquita provides for Cutrale-Safra to commence a tender offer and following the closing of the tender offer to acquire all remaining shares through a merger. The transaction is not subject to any financing conditions. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year or early 2015.

Chiquita Brands reiterated the value of Chiquita's combination with Fyffes and set the record straight regarding the inaccurate and misleading statements made by the Cutrale Group and the Safra Group in an attempt to support its inadequate $14.00 per share offer to acquire Chiquita. The company said, "The strategic benefits of the Chiquita/Fyffes merger are clear and allow Chiquita shareholders to participate in the significant upside potential of the combined organization. Chiquita shareholders will share access to $62M of Fyffes EBITDA and share in $60M of identified, third party reviewed synergies in the combined company with clear and actionable steps identified in each synergy area. Chiquita shareholders will also retain the option to sell ChiquitaFyffes at a premium in the future."
