Unilever to acquire Sara Lee brands providing Sanex sale

Purchase price adjusted

In light of this requirement, Unilever and Sara Lee have amended the share purchase agreement including an adjustment in the purchase price from €1.275bn to €1.210bn.

“We’re very pleased that this transaction has been approved and is nearing a close,” said Marcel Smits, interim CEO of Sara Lee.

“The change in proceeds will have no effect on our capital plans, as we continue with our plans to repurchase $2.5 to $3.0bn of shares by the end of fiscal 2012.”

The transaction is all part of Sara Lee’s ongoing process of divesting its international household and body care business to focus on the food and beverage market.

Unilever going from strength to strength

In contrast, Unilever is looking to strengthen its regional and local positions in personal care with the acquisition.

Unilever’s president of Western Europe, Doug Baillie, said: “Home and personal care is a key growth category and we are acquiring a number of leading brands that fill gaps in our portfolio, improve the stage of the European portfolio, while offering significant potential for development in other geographies.”
