USA: Hormel Foods buys Mark-Lynn Foods
US food manufacturer Hormel Foods has said it has purchased privately-held Mark-Lynn Foods, for approximately US$42.5m.
The company anticipates sales of about $50m, and expects the deal to be $0.01 accretive to the 2005 earnings per share.
Bremen, Georgia-based Mark-Lynn Foods makes and distributes a wide array of foodservice products, including salt and pepper packets, ketchup, mustard, sauces and salad dressings, creamers, sugar packets, jellies, desserts, and drink mixes.
"With half of today's US consumer food dollars being spent outside of the home, our acquisition of Mark-Lynn Foods further strengthens the foodservice-focused capabilities within the Specialty Foods Business Segment. It will be managed by our Diamond Crystal Brands unit," said Joel Johnson, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Hormel Foods.
"Mark-Lynn Foods has a well-established capacity to produce multiple lines of dry and wet products, which is an excellent fit with our existing Specialty Foods manufacturing operations," he added.
