The new company will be based in the Netherlands and hold market-leading positions in 18 countries globally as well as a strong emerging market presence. JDE will own some of the world’s leading coffee brands, such as Jacobs, Tassimo, Moccona, Senseo, L’OR, Douwe Egberts, Kenco, Pilao and Gevalia. The cash-and-equity consideration paid to Mondelez International was reduced proportionally from previous estimates to reflect Mondelez International retaining its interest in its Korea-based joint venture, Dongsuh Foods Corporation. Following the transactions, Mondelez International becomes an even more focused snacking company, with approximately 85 percent of net revenues derived from biscuits, chocolate, gum and candy. By retaining a significant stake in JDE, however, Mondelez International will continue to benefit from future growth of the coffee category. About Mondelez International Mondelez International, Inc.
