Xiwang Agrees to Acquire Canada’s Iovate Health for $730 Million by

Deal for supplement maker expected to close this year

Iovate will keep headquarters and employees in place
Xiwang Foodstuffs Company Ltd. has agreed to buy Canadian nutrition supplement maker Iovate Health Sciences International Inc., according to statements from both companies.

The deal values Iovate at $730 million, Xiwang said in a filing with the Shenzhen Stock Exchange Monday. Xiwang outbid a number of other Chinese buyout firms that had made offers for the business, people familiar with the matter said earlier.

Chinese consumers’ demand for dietary supplements is rising as higher incomes, and problems such as obesity and diabetes, drive a desire for healthier lifestyles. Iovate owns fitness supplement brands MuscleTech and Six Star Pro Nutrition, and has partnerships with Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc., according to its website.

Iovate said it would keep its North American headquarters in Oakville, Canada, all key executives as well as 330 existing employees in place.

Houlihan Lokey Inc. acted as financial adviser to Iovate on the transaction, expected to close later this year. HSBC Holdings Plc advised Xiwang

Added to HBIO today. Hedge funds have a sizable interest. The company has been unsuccessful in bringing about a higher stock currently, than a previous PE bid. URL below is why it's in 2017 Top Ten SITT list. IMO the company is more undervalued now than then. The company even trades at a greater discount from the stingy TO bid that was made in 2007. Reminds me of an old successful TO favorite NBSC . Eppendorf To Acquire New Brunswick Scientific For $110Mln [NBSC]. They say it's rare for lightning to strike twice in the same place. However IMO HBIO is holding a ROD.

New buy today upon the recent big drop- SNAK- INVENTURE FOODS INC It's been on my watch list since the company put itself under strategic review. The company is still loosing money and the CEO just left for Del Monte. IMO a perfect time for the in coming CEO to bring value to shareholders. A couple products I actually use. The Nathans Onion rings & The TGIF potato skins. After all Super Bowl Sunday is coming up. IMO the company made a corporate identity mistake when it changed it's Name to Inventure foods. This when going from regional branded company to National branded. FWIW I like the past Boulder Canyon acquisition name as a National corporate Brand name. All this while maintaining their more known regional brands.

PR snip in July> Company continuing to pursue value-enhancing initiatives as a standalone company, capital structure optimization, a sale of the Company, a sale of certain assets of the Company or other business combination.

P.S. I'm seeing the company as to small a player to compete with the big boys. Perhaps an old Favorite LNCE, might be ready for another acquisition? I can see Cape Cod chips fitting in quite nicely with Boulder Canyon and other regional brands.

CNBC: Charter shares soar on report Verizon exploring a merger deal

My take: so long Charter and short Comcast as an arbitrage? Charter internet fee is much lower than Comcast, so if Verizon bundle their cellphone service with Charter internet, should be competitive.
