M&As this week: Bruni Glass, Smurfit Kappa, Pregis

Bruni Glass has completed the acquisition of UK-based closures, packaging, and packaging equipment supplier H. Erben.

Bruni Glass has completed the acquisition of UK-based closures, packaging, and packaging equipment supplier H. Erben.

H. Erben will operate as Bruni Erben, following the transaction.

Bruni Glass is an Italian distributor of glass containers, bottles and special glass packaging solutions and a subsidiary of US-based rigid packaging solutions provider Berlin Packaging.

Smurfit Kappa has rejected an €8.6bn ($10.6bn) takeover offer from International Paper Company.

“The acquisition will strengthen Pregis’ position in the engineered foam market in North America.”

International Paper also offered a 15% stake to Smurfit Kappa shareholders in the combined entity.

Smurfit Kappa rejected the proposal as it was against its interests of operating as an independent company and underrated its asset and replacement value.
