Chiquita Brands and Fyffes announced a sweetened merger deal on Friday that would give Chiquita shareholders a greater percentage of the transaction. Under the terms of the amended agreement, Chiquita's share would increase to 59.6% from 50.7% of the combined entity, wth Fyffes shareholders owning the rest. The revised deal has been approved by both boards and Chiquita CEO Ed Lonergan said in a statement he is pleased with the enhanced terms. The new agreement comes after Brazilian companies Grupo Cutrale and Safra Group made a $611 million unsolicited bid for Chiquita. The revised Chiquita-Fyffes deal still values the combined company at about 10% less than the bid from Cutrale and Safra.
