JAB snaps up Dr Pepper

From the January 2018 issue.

Coffee podsKeurig Green Mountain, which is owned by private investment firm JAB, has purchased the US-based soft drink maker Dr Pepper Snapple Group.

The US$21 billion purchase involves a special dividend of $103.75 per share to Dr Pepper Snapple shareholders.

The two companies expect to find $600 million in cost savings through the merger.

The acquisition is just the latest in a long list of purchases made by JAB over the past five years, which includes Douwe Egberts, a controlling stake in the coffee business of Mondelez International and a range of high-end roasters in the US such as Intellegentsia and Peet’s.
