“The acquisition of Drom is fully in line with our strategic ambitions. Like Givaudan, Drom has a long heritage in fragrance creation and their capabilities and strong culture will fit perfectly with ours,” said Gilles Andrier, CEO of Givaudan.

While terms of the deal have not been disclosed, Givaudan considers that Drom’s business would have represented approximately EUR 110 million of incremental sales to their results in 2018 on a proforma basis. The planned acquisition remains subject to formal approvals from the relevant regulatory authorities and the transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2019.
