Mexico frozen food company Sigma files to go public
MEXICO CITY Nov 15 (Reuters) - Mexican frozen food company Sigma Alimentos, part of Mexican conglomerate Alfa's on Friday filed a request for a public offering, Mexico's bourse said in a statement on Friday.
Sigma sells well-known brands of meat such as Fud and Nochebuena.
The company said on Thursday it had launched a 695 million euro ($932 million) takeover bid for Spanish meat processor Campofrio at a price analysts said could tempt its leading shareholder to sell.
Sigma secured commitments from shareholders with 44.5 percent of Campofrio - a household name in Spain - meaning that it now needs to persuade China's Shuanghui International Holdings to part with its 37 percent stake in the firm.
