J M Smucker to sell Crisco business in $550 mln cash deal

·1 min read

Oct 26 (Reuters) - J M Smucker will sell its Crisco business to peer B&G Foods in an all-cash deal valued at about $550 million, as it focuses on pet food, coffee and snacks, the companies said on Monday.

J M Smucker, which is looking to exit the U.S. baking category, said the deal also includes its oils and shortening business outside the United States.

The Orrville, Ohio-based company, known for its jelly and beverages, expects the divestiture to cut its annual adjusted earnings per share by 45 cents to 55 cents.
