Pilgrim's Pride sells asset and repays debts
US chicken poultry processor Pilgrim's Pride said it has sold its Farmerville chicken complex to Foster Farms for $72.3 mln and has repaid $450 mln in debtor-in-possession financing.
The company added that the final sale price of the complex was revamped to account for inventory and other reimbursements.
US California-based Foster Farms gained a processing facility, cook plant and two hatcheries, as well as a feed mill and a protein conversion plant.
Proceeds from the Farmerville sale will be used to cover general corporate expenses, said Pilgrim’s Pride.
