Squarefield acted as financial advisor to Royal De Heus on the acquisition of Golpasz

On July 7, 2021, our client De Heus Animal Nutrition (“Royal De Heus” or the “Company”), a Dutch provider of animal nutrition, announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Golpasz S.A. (“Golpasz”), a Polish compound feed company.

Golpasz is, with annual volume sold of almost 500,000 tonnes of compound feed, one of the leading feed producers on the Polish market. This acquisition is consistent with De Heus’ ambition of further strengthening its leading position in Poland.

The proposed acquisition is subject to approval of the Polish Office of Competition and Customers Protections (UOKiK). Squarefield acted as financial advisor to Royal De Heus together with its Polish partner office, M2G.

These competences enable both companies to develop and supply tailor-made (nutritional and business) solutions which are fully in line with the desires and demands of their farming customers. Combining strengths will accelerate further improvement in this area. In addition, Golpasz has gained highly specialised knowledge of turkey nutrition that is of added value to De Heus. Furthermore, Golpasz will get access to De Heus’ international network and expertise centre, Golpasz has the opportunity of enriching its knowledge in multiple areas and use to accelerate product innovation initiatives, among other things.”
