French Parent Company to Sell off Stonyfield Farm

Global Giant to sell off the New Hampshire dairy farm to avoid regulators concerns over a dairy monopoly.

As part of the agreement in principle, in order to facilitate the prompt closing of the WhiteWave acquisition, Danone has decided to sell one of its U.S. dairy subsidiaries, Stonyfield, in the months following the closing of the acquisition of WhiteWave. This move is expected to permit closing to occur shortly and will allow the company to proceed at the soonest with the integration and reap the full benefits of the announced synergies. While Stonyfield has been a valued part of Danone’s portfolio and remains a highly attractive asset, its divestiture does not impact the strategic rationale or financial benefits of the WhiteWave acquisition. Stonyfield generated approximately $370 million in turnover in 2016.
