Post Holdings to Acquire Perfection Pet Foods

Post Holdings, a consumer packaged goods holding company, has agreed to acquire the assets of Perfection Pet Foods for $235 million.

Perfection is a leading manufacturer and packager of private label and co-manufactured pet food and baked treat products. The acquisition includes two manufacturing facilities in Visalia, CA, which will provide Post with additional manufacturing capacity to insource a portion of its current pet food business and an entry point into the private label and co-manufacturing pet food category.

Upon closing of the acquisition, the financial results of Perfection are expected to be reported in the Post Consumer Brands segment.

Inclusive of stand-up costs, Post management expects Perfection to contribute approximately $25 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the next 12 months following the close of the acquisition. Additionally, Post expects the acquisition to result in a tax benefit to Post with a net present value of approximately $20 million and reduce future capital expenditures previously earmarked for capacity expansion.

The acquisition is expected to be completed late in the fourth calendar quarter of 2023, Post’s first quarter of fiscal year 2024, subject to customary closing conditions.

Lincoln International served as financial advisor to Perfection.
