The American flavor and fragrance giant is deleting itself from trading in Tel Aviv about two years after it began trading in it, and about two and a half years since in May 2018 it acquired the Israeli flavor and fragrance company Frutarom for $ 6.4 billion.

Last December, APP reported a huge acquisition in which it would acquire Dupont’s nutrition division for $ 26.2 billion, and Israeli capital market officials attribute the deletion of its shares from trading in Ahuzat Beit to the latest acquisition. “After merging DuPont as well,” Calcalist was told, “IFF has nothing to continue looking for on the Israeli stock exchange.”
The institutional holders of the company’s stock are the American funds Blackrock, Vanguard, and Alliance-Bernstein, which together hold 24.37% of the company’s shares, which will continue to be traded on Wall Street.
The corona hit the APP results, which posted revenue of $ 1.2 billion in the second quarter of this year, reflecting an 8% decline over the previous quarter and a similar decline compared to the same period in 2019. Net income fell 38.3 percent to 74 cents a share, and adjusted earnings were $ 1.36 a share.
AFP explained at the time that most of the weakness was felt in the field of odors, such as products for perfuming spaces, whose demand fell due to the closure and cessation of activity in malls and physical stores. Revenue Division revenue was down 6% to $ 450.4 million while the division’s profit was cut 25% compared to the same quarter last year. In the Flavors Division, which is largely based on Frutarom’s operations, revenue for the quarter shrank by 8% to $ 748.3 million and profit fell by 18%.
During that quarter, a police investigation was officially opened in Israel against former Frutarom executives on suspicion of bribery of a public employee, false registration in corporation documents and breach of trust. As part of the investigation, among others, former CEO and President Uri Yehudai and former CFO Alon Granot were detained for questioning. The affair began with an APP report after the completion of the acquisition of Frutarom, then allegedly revealed payments made to public officials by the Israeli company.
APP is traded on the Tel Aviv and New York US stock exchanges at a value of $ 12.14 billion, and since then its share began to be traded on the Israeli stock exchange, falling by 19.99%, and has experienced a decline of 11.14% since the beginning of 2020.
