Keurig Green Mountain to be Acquired by JAB Holding Company

Keurig green mountain

We have some surprising news - Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. and JAB Holding Company announced that the companies have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which a JAB-led investor group will acquire Keurig Green Mountain for $92.00 per share in cash, or a total equity value of approximately $13.9 billion. The agreement, which has been unanimously approved by Keurig Green Mountain's Board of Directors, represents a premium of approximately 77.9% over Keurig Green Mountain's closing stock price on December 4, 2015.

JAB is acquiring Keurig Green Mountain in partnership with strategic minority investors who are already shareholders in Jacobs Douwe Egberts B.V., ('JDE'), including Mondelēz International and entities affiliated with BDT Capital Partners. At the close of the transaction, Keurig Green Mountain will be privately owned and will continue to be operated independently by the company's management team and employees. Keurig Green Mountain will remain headquartered in Waterbury, VT.

What can we say? Well - Coke is backing the deal and it’s not surprising. They have taken a bath on their investment with the Keurig Green Mountain stock trading well below their initial investment. With the stock buyout of $92 they’ll get back 2.5 billion on their investment. We do wonder how this will affect the Starbucks agreement, and also if KOLD continues to be developed moving forward.

Maybe this means we’ll get some ECO-FRIENDLY K-Cups? Maybe that’s just too much to ask.

Nespresso Gemini Business Class Single Serve Epresso Maker

nespresso-gemini-maker.jpg

I'm still on my trip in Ireland and this morning in Dublin proper. I'm pretty happy with the coffee choice at the Dublin office - a Gemini Nespresso business class single serve espresso maker.

trinity-coffee-nespresso-work-visit.jpg

I went with the darker of the roasts, and I am really impressed with the quality of the coffee. Dark and rich results from the small Nespresso disk, and the texture was silky and smooth. The office is also near Trinity College in Dublin making a little stroll out into Dublin and the College possible this morning.
