(Bloomberg) -- Sweden’s EQT AB offered to acquire German online pet-food retailer Zooplus AG for 470 euros ($550.84) a share.
The proposal is 0.9% higher than Friday’s close, and values Zooplus at 3.36 billion euros.
Pet Bidco GmbH, a holding company that’s linked to the buyout firm, made the takeover offer to the shareholders of Zooplus, according to a statement from the company.
The deal needs the approval of more than 50% of Zooplus shareholders, and is subject to other regulatory considerations.
Earlier this month, KKR & Co. ended talks over a possible takeover bid for Zooplus, narrowing the field of suitors for the German company after Hellman & Friedman LLC raised its offer.
