UNLOCKING LATIN AMERICA’S POTENTIAL
PROPOSED TRANSACTION WITH PRIZE
Rose Hill announces entry into Business Combination Agreement with Prize, expected to be the first Chilean company to be directly listed in the US
Prize is a leading Superfruit farming, processing, and exporting company in the Andean region with customers in 30+ nations
The transaction will value the combined entity at US$425 million, with Rose Hill members expected to participate in the board of directors and in officer positions
Founded in 2006, Prize is a leading farmer, processor and exporter of Superfruits & nuts in the Southern Hemisphere exporting to more than 100 clients in 30 countries. Prize works with more than 200 producers in Chile and Peru and has commercial offices in China. Prize is the 5th largest global exporter of cherries and exports 10 other fruits and walnuts offering a year-round supply of superfruits. Additionally, Prize has the largest cherry processing plant in Chile and it processes & exports over 40 million pounds of fruit for third parties.
The expected business combination with Rose Hill and resulting public listing includes a planned $65 million injection of capital to fund growth in the international superfruit farming and processing segments, particularly focused on Peruvian footprint expansion.
“Over the last 16 years, we have developed Prize into a global company providing quality, nutritious fruits to tens of millions of people in 30+ countries to feed the world. The next stage of accomplishing this goal starts with expanding the global palette for superfruits by producing new, tastier varieties targeting differentiated consumers in the nascent Chinese market alongside more mature markets like the U.S,” Alejandro García-Huidobro, founder and CEO of Prize. “The team at Rose Hill shares our vision of creating a global superfruits platform utilizing innovative technologies and production systems to improve our operations across the value chain and increase our fields’ productivity and resilience to climate change.
The Nasdaq listing provides a launching pad for Prize to enter the next phase in its global evolution, supported internally through vertical integration in its business segments and externally through a robust and diversified set of growers and retailers. Prize’s current position places it attractively at the intersection of best-in-class varieties of fruits grown in specially selected environments, state-of-the-art processing, and long-standing commercial alliances to ensure a successful sale.
