EWOS, a portfolio company of Altor Equity Partners and Bain Capital, has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Cargill in a €1.35 billion transaction. Backed by Altor and Bain since 2013, EWOS is a supplier of feed and nutrition for the international aquaculture industry. Altor initially backed the company out of its €2 billion Fund III, while Bain had invested via its $5.2 billion Bain Capital Europe III partnership; both funds closed in 2008. The deal is expected to close by year end.
