Benchmark Holdings Purchases INVE Aquaculture


Benchmark Holdings (animal health, sustainability science, technical publishing and animal breeding/genetics, head-quartered in the United Kingdom) has purchased INVE Aquaculture for $342 million.


INVE Aquaculture supplies feeds and probiotics to shrimp farms and hatcheries worldwide.  It is larger than Benchmark, so the acquisition constitutes a reverse takeover and is subject to shareholder approval.  In 2014, INVE generated $89 million in revenues with earnings of $25.4 million.  The deal will be completed on December 30, 2015.
