Fortissimo will be making the acquisition via Israeli salt company Melach Haaretz Ltd., which it acquired from Israeli billionaire Shari Arison in January for NIS 170 million (approximately $48.2 million). If the Sugat deal is completed, Fortissimo intends to merge Sugat and Melach Haaretz into a single entity.
