Ajinomoto Co, Inc has recently completed the procedures for the acquisition of all shares of Labeyrie Traiteur Surgelés S A S (LTS) through its consolidated subsidiary Ajinomoto Foods Europe S A S (AFE) in accordance with the details announced earlier this year.

This acquisition will further strengthen the former’s consumer food business in Europe and accelerate its growth.

The acquisition price is 27 million euro (approximately 3.6 billion Yen), which is based on an enterprise value of 21 million euro (approximately 2.8 billion Yen) for LTS.

It took into account factors including the receivables held for LTS by Labeyrie Fine Foods S A S, its parent company.

Along with the acquisition of all shares, Labeyrie Traiteur Surgelés S A S has been renamed LTS S A S.

The impact of the acquisition on Ajinomoto Co’s business results for fiscal 2017 will be immaterial.
