Common Ground Corporate Finance is happy to announce the successful acquisition of UK based KK Fine Foods by Ter Beke NV (Euronext: TERB).
Common Ground acted as the corporate finance advisor for Ter Beke. “Common Ground’s knowledge and experience in the food segment was very instrumental in finding the right target for Ter Beke’s internationalization strategy and in positioning Ter Beke as the best strategic buyer for the further development of KK Fine Foods” says Dirk Goeminne, CEO of Ter Beke.
KK Fine Foods is a passionate, fast moving business built on family values and integrity. KK Fine Foods produces and distributes fresh ready-made meals (frozen) which are sold in the food service and retail markets. With a turnover of 39.3 million EUR in 2016, the company is a major player in the ready meals market and it enjoys double digits growth figures every year.
Ter Beke is an innovative Belgian fresh food group with a wide range of high-quality fresh food products and associated services operating commercially in many European countries. This takeover gives Ter Beke also a firm foothold in the UK market, the largest of its kind for ready meals in Europe.
