UK: Brake Brothers agrees to £434m takeover
After two months on the market, British foodservice supplier Brake Bros has today [Tuesday] found a buyer in the shape of private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R). The board of CD&R, through its CDRP Acquisition PLC subsidiary, offered a cash deal of a £8.25 (US$12.39) per Brake Bros share.
