Entropy advises institutions to oppose Osem-Nestle deal


According to Entropy, Osem's shares should be sold at a higher multiple.

Consulting firm Entropy has advised financial institutions holding shares in Israeli foods company Osem Investments Ltd. (controlled by Nestle SA (SWX:NESN)) (TASE: OSEM) to oppose the deal for the sale of the shares to controlling shareholder Nestle in a triangularreverse merger. This emerges from a study that Entropy sent to its customers yesterday evening.

Entropy believes that Osem should be sold at a higher multiple than the one determined in the deal. It also states that the choice of a triangular reverse merger reduces the ability of the institutions to bargain over the price, since they hold only 7% of the shares in Osem.
