Iglo is headquartered in the UK and controls a 30 per cent share of the European frozen food market. It’s an attractive high-turnover, lower tax option for global consumer brands business Nomad, which is expected to pay €2.6bn (£1.87bn).
Iglo’s owner Permira turned to Clifford Chance and Skadden on the sale. The private equity firm will retain a 9 per cent stake in the company.
Greenberg Traurig is advising Nomad on the acquisition.
