Grupo Bimbo Goes For Expansion In Europe

Grupo  Bimbo goes for  expansion spree with  take over of  Sara Lee  Business in Spain and Portugal

A report .

"Grupo Bimbo S.A.B. de C.V. has agreed to purchase Sara Lee Corp.’s fresh bakery business in Spain and Portugal for about €115 million ($154 million).
“This acquisition underscores our international growth strategy and bolsters our vision of becoming a global leader in the baking industry,” said Daniel Servitje, chief executive officer of Grupo Bimbo. “It will also give us the opportunity to unite the Bimbo brand on both sides of the Atlantic along with the transfer of know-how between the two companies and commitment of our new Spanish and Portuguese associates.”
The agreement includes all Sara Lee fresh bakery brands, including Bimbo, Martinez, Ortiz and Silueta, in Spain and Portugal along with seven manufacturing facilities. In fiscal 2011, the Sara Lee fresh bakery business in Spain had net sales of $408 million.
“The move to Grupo Bimbo is a natural next step that can benefit the Sara Lee bakery team and brands in Spain and Portugal as they would become part of an organization fully dedicated to the bakery category,” said Jan Bennink, executive chairman of the board for Sara Lee. “Divesting the bakery business allows Sara Lee’s international portfolio to become simpler and more focused on coffee and tea, the categories around which we are building a leading pure-play international company.”


Grupo Bimbo Eyes Sara Lee Bread Business

Grupo Bimbo is the lead bidder to buy Sara Lee Corp's North American bread business for about $1 billion, though a deal could be several weeks away, Bloomberg news reported on Tuesday.

Sara Lee, which declined to comment, had said last month it planned to spend more on its North American bakery business and raise some prices as it looks to improve performance in that lagging business.

That announcement to invest in the business had come after some suitors walked away from the bakery auction, sources familiar with the situation previously told Reuters.

Bloomberg reported that some private-equity funds are still looking at the bread business, though Bimbo has emerged as the likeliest buyer.

Bimbo declined to comment.

Mexico City-based Bimbo bought the U.S. bread-making unit of Canada's George Weston Ltd for $2.38 billion in December 2008, increasing its presence in the eastern United States.

Sara Lee initially hoped to get $1.5 billion for the bread business, but the unit may ultimately only fetch $1 billion, Bloomberg reported.

Earlier this month, private equity firm Apollo Global Management approached Sara Lee about a potential buyout, Reuters previously reported.
