08:00 EDTPGSpectrum Brands to acquire P&G's European pet food business
Procter & Gamble (PG) announced that Spectrum Brands (SPB) has agreed to buy IAMS and EUKANUBA brands in Europe for an undisclosed amount. In April, P&G announced the sale to Mars of 80% of its global Pet Care business, including North America and Latin America. Europe was not included in that deal with the exception of Russia and Turkey. Mars later agreed to buy an additional 10% of the business in additional markets including Japan, Australia and South Africa. With the Spectrum transaction, P&G now has closed deals or reached agreements to sell 100% of its Pet Care business. The deal will close in 2015, subject to regulatory approvals. The geographic regions included in the acquisition, which account for approximately 10% of P&G’s former pet care global sales, include 42 markets throughout Europe. The business has approximately $200M of annual sales and will provide Spectrum Brands’ United Pet Group division access to the $21B European dog and cat food market which is growing at an estimated 3%-5% annually.
