Pernod Ricard announces that its subsidiary Martell & Co has entered into an agreement with Mr. Lassalle to purchase 100% of the shares in Le Maine au Bois SAS. The company, located in Saint-Eugene, which is in the "Petite Champagne” area within the heart of the AOC Cognac region, is recognised for its activities as a trader-winemaker, distiller and wholesaler.

The company has high-quality eaux-de-vie of all ages and state-of-the-art industrial facilities, notably the distillery Le Maine au Bois.

This acquisition reflects Pernod Ricard's ambitions regarding long term development of its Martell range, world leader of the XO cognac category.

Closing of the acquisition should take place before June 30, 2013.
