Nestle to pay $7.15B to sell Starbucks packaged coffee

AFP Nestle pays $7.15 billion to license Starbucks products

The world's biggest coffee company, Starbucks, and food and beverage major Nestle have clinched a deal granting the latter the right to market Starbucks-branded coffee beans and capsules. The company had originally slated the opening of its first Italian branch for early past year but the project began to run behind schedule and as delays mounted Starbucks made a decision to take on Italy's coffee drinkers with a landmark opening. Nestle expects the deal to contribute positively to its earnings per share and organic growth targets from 2019. The press release stated that 500 Starbucks employees will join the Nestle family to drive performance of the existing business and global expansion.

Nestle is making a new offensive in the USA a decade after Nespresso renewed a push into that market, enjoying limited success as most coffee drinkers avoid small espressos.

Starbucks also notes that it already has plans for the after-tax proceeds that it will get from the $7.15 billion deal.

Nestle has announced it is moving its US headquarters to Virginia and plans to complete the move by July 6.

The Nescafe and Nespresso owner would own the rights to market Starbucks' coffee, which it says generates $2 billion in annual sales, the BBC reported. Ready to drink coffee, tea and juice products are, however, not included in the list.

The companies announced Monday they are forming a "global coffee alliance". Operations will continue to be located in Seattle. The transaction required approval from regulators, which is expected to be finalised by the end of 2018.

"This is a great day for coffee lovers around the world".

According to Nestlé, the Starbucks business - which constitutes the majority of the coffee chain's channel development segment - generated revenue of €1.68bn (US$2bn) in fiscal 2017.

Starbucks in November agreed to sell tea brand Tazo to Unilever for $384 million.
