ADM goes head to head with Ajinomoto for Wild Flavor

Archer Daniels Midland, a US-based corn processor, and Ajinomoto, a Japanese producer of seasonings and curry sauces, have emerged as the last remaining bidders for Wild Flavor, a Swiss-based drink flavours company backed by KKR, in moves underscoring companies’ growing appetite for cross-border acquisitions.

The two groups have submitted bids valuing the Zug-based company at more than €2bn including debt, against the €1.5bn-€2bn price tag the owners initially expected, according to three people with knowledge of the discussions.

ADM and Ajinomoto have trumped offers from private equity groups including Stockholm-based EQT Partners, they said. Swiss flavours and fragrances company Givaudan submitted a bid that was not retained, partly because a merger with Wild would have resulted in cost-cutting measures, according to one of them.

ADM processes crops including oilseeds, wheat and cocoa to produce ingredients for food and animal feed. A spokesperson for the company, based in Decatur, Illinois, could not immediately be reached for comment. A spokesperson for Ajinomoto, which is headquartered in Tokyo, could not be contacted outside normal business hours.

Wild, which was founded in Heidelberg, Germany, in 1931, makes natural flavours, ingredients and systems for the food and beverage industry. Hans-Peter Wild, who is the son of founder Rudolf Wild, owns 65 per cent of the shares. KKR acquired a 35 per cent stake in the company in 2010.

 The disposal highlights the growing competition for deals in Europe as more companies consider acquisitions amid signs of economic recovery.

espite having access to cheap debt financing for acquisitions, private equity fund managers are finding it hard to compete with aggressive trade buyers, which typically can offer cost synergies.

The sale of Wild comes just months after Symrise, a German aroma chemicals maker, agreed to buy Diana Ingredients, a French pet food ingredients maker. The deal valued the Brittany-based company at €1.3bn including debt – more than its private equity owner Ardian had expected.

Ajinomoto competed for Diana Ingredients before deciding to focus on Wild, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. Private equity funds including Blackstone, CVC Capital Partners and BC Partners were outbid in the Diana process.

The acquisition of Wild could be announced by the end of this month, one of the people said. Citigroup, which is advising on the sale, declined to comment, as did KKR.
