Indofood Sukses Makmur (INDF), Indonesia's largest food processing company and - reportedly - the world's largest producer of instant noodles, plans to sell a 52.94 percent stake in China Minzhong Food Corporation Limited (CMFC), a Singapore-listed Chinese integrated vegetable processing firm. Indofood will sell 347 million shares at a price of Sin$ 1.2 per share, hence the sale will have a total value of Sin$ 416.4 million (IDR 3.9 trillion, or USD $313 million). A potential buyer is China Minzhong Holdings Ltd.
China Minzhong Holdings Ltd currently holds a 0.82 percent stake in CMFC, while Indofood holds an 82.88 percent stake (which will decline to 29.94 percent after the share sale). Indofood Director and Corporate Secretary Werianty Setiawan said that the company received a purchase offer for 52.94 percent of CMFC’s shares from China Minzhong Holdings on 31 December 2014.
