04 July 2017

US - Danone has entered into a binding agreement with Lactalis to sell Stonyfield, one of its US dairy subsidiaries, for a purchase price of $875 million, representing 20 times its EBITDA in 2016.

Stonyfield generated approximately $370 million in turnover in 2016.

The divestiture is part of the agreement reached on 31 March 2017 with the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection with Danone’s recently closed acquisition of WhiteWave.

The closing of the divestiture is subject to customary conditions, including final approval by the DOJ, and is expected in the third quarter of this year.
