Caird successfully exits investment in Chaucer Foods
In December 2016, Caird successfully exited its investment in Chaucer Foods via a $130m trade sale to Nagatanien Holdings Co. Limited, a Japan headquartered manufacturer and distributor of premixed and instant food.
The deal brings together two well-established and successful businesses that share the same corporate philosophies and aligned strategies, with a central focus on health and wellness products and natural ingredients. Through the transaction, a strategic growth platform will be created for both companies, allowing each to benefit from their existing relationships and respective infrastructures.
Completion of the Chaucer deal, means that Caird has now successfully completed 8 exits since acquiring a debt and equity portfolio from Royal Bank of Scotland (“RBS”) in August 2015.
