MUMBAI, INDIA: Tata Chemicals Limited has decided de-merger its Consumer Products Business and merge it with Tata Global Beverages Limited (TGBL). TGBL will be renamed as Tata Consumer Products Limited, the company announced. 

The transaction is expected to be completed by Q4 FY20 / Q1 FY21.

Pursuant to the Scheme, each shareholder of TCL will get 1.14 new equity shares of TGBL for every 1 equity share held in TCL i.e. a shareholder holding 100 shares in TCL will receive 114 shares in TGBL.

The new merged entity combines key brands such as Tata Salt, Tata Tea, Tata Sampann and Tetley under a single umbrella.

The combined consumer business will also benefit from a combined reach of over 200 million households, a broader portfolio to deepen distribution, enhanced innovation capabilities, as well as a strong product pipeline. ln addition, the new consumer entity expects to achieve substantial revenue and cost synergies which will add value to its shareholders.

"Tata Consumer Products consolidates our current presence in food & beverages in the fast-growing consumer sector. Through this combination, we have created a strong growth platform to meet the growing aspirations of Indian consumers,” said N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons.

"This transaction is consistent with our strategy to deepen our India presence and transform into a broader FMCG player. Existing TGBL shareholders will benefit significantly as the Consumer Products Business increased our exposure to high growth product categories and provides a strong platform to seize new opportunities in this sector. We will also continue to nurture and grow our global brands,” added Ajoy Misra, Managing Director & CEO of TGB.

"This combination provides significant benefits to our shareholders by unlocking the value of our Consumer Products Business. ln line with its strategy to be a leading science-based solutions company, Tata Chemicals will aggressively grow its specialty chemistry business in the areas of Agro Science, Nutrition Science, Material Science and Energy Storage Science. ln addition, the Basic Chemistry Business of Tata Chemicals will be the Global Partner of Choice for Soda Ash, Salt and Bicarbonate to leading brands of Food, Pharma, Detergents and Glass,” added R Mukundan, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Chemicals.
