Nestlé Purina is increasing its minority stake to improve and deliver ‘advanced pet food solutions and first-class pet care services’; majority shareholder EQT has pledged continued investment in the company; and Silver Lake, a leading global technology investment firm, is making a new substantial minority investment to help unlock and accelerate growth from digital and technology opportunities. ”
CEO Stephen Clarke said: This is a great expression of confidence in the company and our staff should be proud of what we have collectively achieved. We need to continue to do what we do best: caring for animals, people and the environment, and leading the way in bringing new standards of animal care and staff wellbeing to the sector globally.
“This additional investment will support us in continuing to deliver exceptional care to our four million pets and their owners across the 12 countries we already operate in.”
