16:20 EDTCQBChiquita says $14/share Cutrale-Safra bid inadequate, would consider higher bid
Chiquita Brands announced that its board of directors unanimously determined that the offer from the Cutrale Group and the Safra Group announced on October 15, to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Chiquita for $14.00 per share in cash, is inadequate and not in the best interests of Chiquita shareholders. The Chiquita Board of Directors has unanimously reaffirmed its recommendation that Chiquita shareholders vote to approve the definitive transaction agreement between Chiquita and Fyffes, as revised on September 25. In its letter to Cutrale / Safra, Chiquita said, "Of course, our Board is always willing to give fair consideration to an increased offer by Cutrale / Safra."

09:57 EDTCQBCutrale-Safra submits offer to acquire Chiquita for $14 per share in cash
Cutrale-Safra announced its definitive offer to acquire all the outstanding stock of Chiquita Brands for $14 per share in cash. Having completed its due diligence, Cutrale-Safra has submitted its offer to the Chiquita Board of Directors, together with a form of merger agreement that Cutrale-Safra would be prepared to execute and deliver concurrently with Chiquita entering into such merger agreement and associated disclosure letters. Cutrale-Safra is also delivering to Chiquita equity and debt commitment letters for the transaction. The offer reflects Cutrale-Safra's assessment and analysis of Chiquita's current condition and prospects. Unlike the proposed combination with Fyffes, the superior Cutrale-Safra offer provides Chiquita shareholders complete certainty with respect to the value of their Chiquita investment. This offer represents a premium of approximately 40% to the market's valuation of the original proposed transaction with Fyffes based on Chiquita's undisturbed closing share price of $10.06 as of August 8, and an approximately 19% premium to the adjusted stock price of $11.80, based upon the revised Fyffes transaction. Moreover, the proposed cash consideration of the Cutrale-Safra offer, including the assumption of Chiquita net debt, represents a multiple of approximately 12.4x EBITDA for the twelve months ended June 30. Cutrale-Safra expects to be able to close its offer promptly following entry into the merger agreement. The Cutrale-Safra offer is not subject to any financing conditions. It will be financed with equity provided by affiliates of the Cutrale Group and Safra Group. Cutrale-Safra has received a commitment letter for facilities to refinance Chiquita's existing credit facilities and a letter agreement pursuant to which Bank Safra Sarasin is obligated to make an offer to purchase Chiquita's 7.875% Senior Secured Notes due 2021 as required by the relevant indenture in connection with the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement. The form of merger agreement is on substantially similar terms to the Fyffes transaction agreement. Cavendish Acquisition will file a copy of the form of merger agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission by close of business. Cutrale–Safra does not believe there are any regulatory obstacles that would prevent it from closing promptly following entry into the merger agreement.
