Innophos Holdings, Inc., Cranbury, NJ, an international producer of performance-critical and nutritional specialty ingredients, with applications in food, beverage, dietary supplements, pharmaceutical, oral care and industrial end markets, has completed the acquisition of the business and assets of Triarco Industries, Inc.
 
Triarco, a privately held company based in Wayne, NJ, manufactures custom ingredients for the food, beverage, dietary supplement and nutraceutical industries, specializing in botanical and enzyme based ingredients.

In the transaction, an Innophos subsidiary purchased all of Triarco's assets for $45 million in cash plus $1 million in shares of Innophos Holdings, Inc. Common Stock. The cash portion of the purchase price was financed by Innophos from borrowings under the company's senior credit facility. The acquisition includes potential for additional incentive consideration contingent upon success in delivering growth objectives over the next two years. Closing of the purchase occurred upon execution of the definitive agreements effective as of December 31, 2012.  The acquisition is expected to be accretive to earnings per share in 2013.
