“These two acquisitions, along with our purchase of Formcook AB and Wolf-tec, Inc., in 2014, support our Next Level strategy of acquiring leading companies that strengthen our protein processing and liquid foods portfolios.”

The purchase price for Stork Food & Dairy Systems will be €47 million, before customary 
post-closing adjustments. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015.
