The Luxembourg investment firm giant, JAB Holdings Inc. seems to be taking over the coffee world one acquisition at a time. The firm has come very close to the market leaders Nestle in the bid for the largest coffee business in the world. JAB Holdings is one of the largest investment firms in Europe and is closely guarded and manages the Austrian billionaire family Reimann’s wealth. The investment firm made one of its largest and daring moves last week by taking over the Keurig Green Mountain Inc(NASDAQ:GMCR), which marked the deal as the largest one in the history of the business and sector.
The acquisition was a 14 billion dollar buy out deal by the company. This has propelled the firm to the second largest competitor in the market. Many critics question such an immediate rise in the company’s growth rate. JAB Holdings has grown exponentially in just a matter of a couple of decades. Even though the firm and business comes with decades of establishment and business acumen, the firm has been undergoing a sudden spike in the market share. The top JAB Holdings management is run by three astute business executives with years of experience in the markets and investment world.
JAB Holdings have spent a little over 30 billion dollars in the past half-decade. This deal however, makes the company the fastest growing firm within the sector. The company has invested in over half a dozen acquisitions and propositions in the business world across Europe and the United States. JAB Holdings aims at being global business leaders in the coffee business. They are modeling their consolidation strategy and growth on global beer leader Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR)(NYSE:BUD). They are aiming at becoming the largest producer of coffee.
JAB Holdings Inc.
The company is renowned for its proximity with the Reimann family’s fortune. JAB Holdings handle investments of all the Reimann brothers in various portfolios from Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG) to Reckitt and Benckiser Plc. JAB Holdings Inc. began as a chemical production company but has shifted their main revenue streams to investment portfolios in consumer goods. The company has had a string of illustrious chiefs who hailed from esteemed backgrounds.
The transition of the company from a placid entity to an active investment firm with controlling interests in companies like Jimmy Choo has been one of the biggest success stories in the modern business world. The global coffee market is growing at the rate of five percent a year, and JAB Holdings Inc. is poised to be the industry leader in terms of production scale and revenues.
