ORRVILLE, OHIO — The J. M. Smucker Co. said it will hold a special meeting of its shareholders on Oct. 16 to seek approval of the issuance of Smucker common shares in the previously announced proposed merger of The Folgers Coffee Co. with a wholly owned subsidiary of The J. M. Smucker Co. Shareholders of record at the close of business on Sept. 8 will be entitled to attend and vote at the special meeting. The company anticipates that proxy materials relating to the special meeting of Smucker shareholders will be mailed in mid-September.
In addition to Smucker shareholder approval, closing of the transaction is contingent upon various other closing conditions, which will be further described in the company’s proxy materials relating to the special meeting.
