GERMANY: Wild aiming to go public
German soft drinks company Wild is looking to float in the next two years.
The family-owned company confirmed today (28 September) that its chairman and owner, Dr Hans Peter Wild, is looking to create "a structure which will enable the enterprise's future development to continue independent from his current ownership position".
Dr. Wild said: "My main concern is to secure the future of the company, which my parents founded in 1931 and that I have further developed into a successful international enterprise.
"We operate in a good business environment; the company has a solid base, excellent employees and creates value for its customers.
Our decision is a clear sign to our employees that we will work together for solid growth".
Wild is the largest private producer of natural ingredients for the food and beverage industry, and owns the Capri Sun soft drink brand.
