Unilever is to sell its margarine business, including Flora and Stork. It comes as part of a review at the Anglo-Dutch firm, which recently saw off a takeover bid from US food giant Kraft Heinz. The sell-off could fetch $6bn (£4.8bn).
Unilever is also studying whether to change its status and looking at the wider “legal structure” of having bases in both the UK and the Netherlands because of the increased cost and complexity that comes with supporting two corporate structures, however, having dual structures can be useful defences against takeover bids.
When it comes to legal advice, all businesses need someone skilled, reliable and experienced they can turn to for support and guidance. At Wrigley Claydon we are here to develop and give effect to the legal arrangements needed to help you achieve your commercial objectives and manage business risk.
