LacPatrick Dairies To Begin Talks With Glanbia, Lakelands, Aurivo And Dale Farm

LacPatrick Dairies will issue non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) to four prospective bidders this week as the process to sell off or merge the Monaghan-based business intensifies. The co-op is understood to be preparing documentation for Glanbia plc (ISE:GL9), Lakeland Dairies Co-op Society Ltd, Aurivo Co-operative Society Ltd. and Dale Farm Limited, which have each expressed an interest in acquiring LacPatrick. The issuing of NDAs will allow for formal talks with each party ahead of a bidding process, which is expected to take place this month, according to a well-placed source. LacPatrick surprised the market last month by announcing it was seeking a strategic partner for the business amid a reversal in dairy prices internationally. A spokesman said that as a commercial sell-off or merger process had commenced, it would be inappropriate to comment.
