  • IOIC has entered into a SPA with Koninklijke Bunge B.V. (KBBV) for the disposal of 70% stake held in Loders Crocklaan Group B.V. (Loders) for a total cash consideration of USD595m plus EUR297m or equivalent to RM2.54m and RM1.51m respectively.
  • Based on the indicative disposal consideration, IOIC Group is expected to record a gain RM2,505.80m from the proposed disposal and from the re-measurement of IOI’s remaining 30% stake in Loders.
  • We are positive on this proposal. The deal would allow 1) Loders to leverage on the size of Bunge’s operations by tapping into Bunge’s expertise and extensive geographical coverage, 2) unlock partially IOIC investment in Loders Group, and 3) divest its business risk in Europe and US.
