Bonne Santé Group Completes Milestone Acquisition of Millenium, an FDA-Approved Nutraceutical Manufacturing Facility
Acquisition Funded by Bonne Santé's Bridge Financing to its Anticipated Reg A+ IPO; Millenium Being Positioned for Bonne Santé's Global CBD Initiative
MIAMI, March 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Bonne Santé Group, Inc., an early stage global nutraceutical company, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Florida-based Millenium Natural Manufacturing Corp, a state-of-the-art FDA-approved nutraceutical manufacturing facility. The acquisition was funded by Bonne Santé Group’s previously announced capital raise in the form of a bridge to its anticipated Reg A+ IPO. The announcement was made by William W. Nicholson, Executive Chairman of Bonne Santé Group.
“We are pleased to announce this milestone transaction for Bonne Santé Group, which represents our platform manufacturing facility in the nutraceutical space,” stated Mr. Nicholson. “As our first acquisition, this marks the initial leap forward in our mission to create a world-class nutraceutical company through our highly targeted buy-and-build strategy. We believe Millenium’s FDA-approved facility and their staff of highly experienced professionals will be a major addition to our team as we expand their offerings with our emphasis on industrial hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD) products. In addition, their location in Florida represents a prime location for both expanding US operations, in addition to export opportunities as we continue to expand.”
We are pleased to announce this milestone transaction for Bonne Santé Group, which represents our platform manufacturing facility in the nutraceutical space.
William W. Nicholson, Executive Chairman
Millenium operates from a 22,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility in Doral, Florida, manufacturing a wide variety of nutraceutical products such as vitamins, sports nutrition, and other health supplements. Millenium has evolved into a comprehensive nutraceutical contract and private label manufacturing company. Millenium, founded in 1998, established its success on sound business relationships with hundreds of clients from the United States, South and Central America, and Europe. This has led to Millenium being recognized by the United States Department of Commerce, U.S. Commercial Service, with the Export Achievement Certificate for accomplishments in the global marketplace. Millenium was recently nominated for the Top 100 Minority Business award by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.
"We believe this acquisition is a threshold event for Bonne Santé Group and our investors,” said A.J. Cervantes, Executive Vice-Chairman of Bonne Santé Group. “We are pleased that Millenium’s founder and President, Ada L deQuesada, will stay onboard while our collective team focuses on driving new business and continuing to execute our M&A strategy. Our bridge financing contributed the funds to close this acquisition, and with additional interest, we anticipate further closings on a rolling basis to support Bonne Santé’s organic growth and accretive acquisition strategy.”
“We are excited about Millenium’s next chapter and partnering with the Bonne Santé management team with its commitment to accelerate growth in addition to the development of Bonne Santé proprietary products,” stated Ms. deQuesada. “Under Bill Nicholson’s leadership, we intend for Millenium to become a dominant force in the global nutraceutical market.”
