CCEP has made an offer to acquire 69.2% of the existing share capital of Coca-Cola Amatil held by independent shareholders; while setting out a proposal with The Coca-Cola Company to acquire TCCC's 30.8% interest in Amatil (19.5% of CCEP is owned by TCCC).

CCA said that once confirmatory due diligence is completed and other conditions are satisfied, including CCEP and TCCC reaching an agreement, then CCA intends to unanimously recommend the takeover to its independent shareholders.

The implied value shares are $9.28 billion. The takeover has the backing of Amatil's independent shareholders, the company said.

"The proposed transaction would create a broader and more balanced footprint for CCEP whilst nearly doubling CCEP's consumer reach, with the aim of ultimately driving sustainable and faster growth, through geographic diversification and scale", the bottler said.
