07:07 EDTPPC, HSH, PFPilgrim's Pride proposes to acquire Hillshire Brands for $45.00 per share cash
Pilgrim's Pride Corporation (PPC) announced that it has made a proposal toacquire The Hillshire Brands Company (HSH) for $45.00 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at $6.4B. Pilgrim said its all-cash proposal provides Hillshire shareholders with a substantially superior alternative to Hillshire's pending acquisition of Pinnacle Foods (PF), representing a 25% premium to the volume weighted average price of Hillshire shares over the 10 trading days following the announcement of the Pinnacle transaction. Further, the transaction represents a compelling value to Hillshire shareholders at 12.5x Hillshire's trailing adjusted EBITDA, including the $163M termination fee payable to Pinnacle. The proposal has the unanimous support of the Board of Directors of Pilgrim's, as well as the support of JBS S.A., the majority owner of Pilgrim's. It is anticipated that the proposed transaction would close in the third quarter of 2014 and would be subject to customary closing conditions and the termination of Hillshire's merger agreement with Pinnacle. Pilgrim's expects to finance the acquisition with a combination of existing cash balances and new debt financing.
