Suntory Holdings Limited Key Developments

Anellotech and Suntory Enter Next Phase of Strategic Partnership to Develop 100% Bio-Based Plastics for Sustainable Beverage Bottles

Anellotech announced that the company has entered into the next phase of its strategic partnership with Suntory Holdings Limited. The partnership, which began in 2012 under a collaboration agreement that has provided more than $15 million in funding to date, is focused on advancing the development and commercialization of cost-competitive 100% bio-based plastics for use in beverage bottles as part of Suntory’s commitment to sustainable business practices. Suntory currently uses 30% plant-derived materials for their Mineral Water Suntory Tennensui brands and is pursuing the development of a 100% bio-bottle through this partnership. The Anellotech alliance with Suntory supports the development of bio-aromatics including bio-paraxylene, the key component needed to make 100% bio-based polyester for use in beverage bottles. As an integral component in the bio-based value chain, Anellotech’s proprietary thermal catalytic biomass conversion technology cost-competitively produces “drop in” green aromatics, including paraxylene and benzene, from non-food biomass. With construction now complete on its new, fully-integrated development and testing facility, Anellotech is ready to commence installation with groundbreaking scheduled for late January 2016. Operational in 2016, this 25 meter-tall unit will confirm the viability and suitability of the Bio-TCat process for scale-up, and generate the data needed to design commercial plants using Bio-TCat technology. The TCat-8 unit was jointly designed by Anellotech and its R&D partner IFPEN, and will use a novel catalyst under joint development by Anellotech and Johnson Matthey. After verification of the continuous operation of TCat-8, Suntory plans to move ahead with studies to consider the development of the first commercial-scale Bio-TCat plant. Suntory joins Anellotech’s existing partners IFP Energies nouvelles, Axens, Johnson Matthey, and a multinational corporate investor, which has provided a $7 million equity investment, the first tranche of a total $10 million investment.

Suntory Not Considering IPO Or Large Acquisitions

Suntory Holdings Limited will need at least three years to bed down its integration with U.S. bourbon maker Beam and in the meantime it will not consider an initial public offering or any large-scale acquisitions, its President said. "Unless we achieve successful post-merger integration, we cannot compete in the global market," Takeshi Niinami said in an interview with Reuters on October 26, 2015. "An IPO is done to fund large-scale acquisitions. We are not considering them. We don't see any necessity for an IPO now."

Suntory Holdings Seeks Financing Options

The President of Suntory Holdings Limited, Takeshi Niinami, said the company was considering an initial public offering as one of a range of financing options. Other possibilities include deals with private-equity firms to invest in Suntory business units, or sales of noncore assets, he said. The IPO if happens will not be before 2018.
