Sad news are that the Spanish company “FIESTA” is for sale. After some years of financial difficulties, the company, located near Madrid, has a tag price of around 20 Million Euros.
The same is expected to take place in July and will be organized in two parts: The sale and distribution of sweets, and the factory itself. The first business has an estimated value of 12 M Eur but the initial sale price will be 5 times the EBITDA for 2015. The company estimates that the EBITDA for 2014 will be 1,2 M Eur, so if the forecast for 2015 is the same, then the value will be 6 M Eur (half of the estimated value of the business). Regarding the building itself, it has a value of 8 M Eur but it will come out for sale for 6,7 M Eur. 50 companies have already shown interest. The company has now 140 employees and has suffered a deep restructuration process during last years and months.
