Performance Food Group Company Completes the Acquisition of Reinhart Foodservice

December 30, 2019 GMT

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 30, 2019--

Performance Food Group Company (PFG) (NYSE: PFGC) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Reinhart Foodservice, L.L.C. (Reinhart). With the close of the transaction, PFG is now positioned as one of the largest distributors in the U.S., with approximately $30 billion in annual net revenue and nearly 25,000 talented associates. PFG continues to expect to generate approximately $50 million of annual run-rate cost synergies in the third full fiscal year following today’s close. This is anticipated to result in low single-digit Adjusted Diluted EPS accretion in the first full fiscal year and low double-digit accretion expected in the third full fiscal year.

“We are excited to close the acquisition and welcome Reinhart’s many talented associates to the PFG family of companies,” said George Holm, PFG Chairman, President & CEO. “The Reyes family has built a strong business and this transaction expands PFG’s platform to help our diverse customer base thrive. We are honored to add Reinhart’s proud history to PFG and look forward to creating shared success in the future.”

“We are happy to welcome Reinhart to PFG,” said Craig Hoskins, PFG Executive Vice President and President & CEO of PFG’s Foodservice Segment. “Reinhart brings complementary strengths that will expand Performance Foodservice’s broadline presence, improve our network efficiency and help us achieve our long-term growth goals. There will be many opportunities for our organizations to learn from each other as Reinhart becomes an important part of PFG’s Foodservice Segment.”
