Kerry sustainability-linked

Greeley, Colorado-based Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. Board of Directors has formed a special committee of independent directors to review and evaluate the previously announced unsolicited proposal received Aug. 12 from JBS S.A. to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of PPC that JBS does not currently own.

The special committee has retained Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP as legal counsel and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC as financial advisor to assist the special committee in its review and evaluation of the JBS proposal.

The board resolutions establishing the special committee expressly provide that the PPC board of directors will not approve the transaction proposed by JBO without the prior favorable recommendation of the special committee and that any such transaction will be conditioned on the affirmative vote of a majority of PPC shares that are not held by JBS or its affiliates.

There can be no assurance that a definitive agreement relating to the JBS proposal will be entered into by PPC or that any transaction will be consummated.

Pilgrim’s Pride employs more than 56,000 people and operates protein processing plants and prepared-foods facilities in 14 states, Puerto Rico, Mexico, the U.K. and continental Europe. The company’s primary distribution is through retailers and foodservice distributors. For more information, visit pilgrims.com.
