MSC makes €5.7B offer for Bolloré Africa Logistics

05 January 2022/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain, Ports, Maritime & Waterways


Bolloré Group has received an offer from the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) to acquire 100% of Bolloré Africa Logistics.

If successful, the deal would comprise all of the Bolloré Group’s transport and logistics activities in Africa, on the basis of an enterprise value, net of minority interests, of €5.7 billion.

Bolloré Group has granted the MSC Group an exclusivity until 31 March 2022 to enable MSC, further to an additional due diligence phase and contractual negotiations, to submit a put option.

Bolloré Group’s decision to exercise this put option and the signature of the relevant agreements may only take place after the competent employee representative bodies have been informed and consulted and certain internal reorganisation operations have been carried out within the Bolloré Group.

Completion of the sale would require the approval of regulatory and competition authorities, as well as of certain counterparties of Bolloré Africa Logistics.

The Bolloré Group will report on the outcome of these exclusive negotiations in due course.
