Olam to buy Dangote Flour Mills for $424.9 million



Singapore-based commodity trader Olam International on Tuesday said it will buy Nigeria’s Dangote Flour Mills for an enterprise value of 130 billion naira ($424.9 million), as it looks to bolster its position in Nigeria’s wheat market.




Olam’s Nigerian unit, which holds a 0.1 percent stake in Dangote Flour Mills, will buy the rest of the company.



The deal expands Olam’s reach in the pasta market in Nigeria, as it looks to cash in on the growing demand of wheat-based products in the region.

Olam will fund the deal, which is on a debt free and a cash free basis, from internal cash resources and existing borrowing.
