October 8, 2021
Kubota Corporation

Kverneland AS (Head Office: Kverneland, Kingdom of Norway; President and CEO: Shingo Hanada; hereinafter "Kverneland"), a subsidiary of Kubota Corporation (Head Office: Naniwa-ku, Osaka, Japan; President and Representative Director: Yuichi Kitao; hereinafter "Kubota"), has decided to acquire 80% of shares in ROC S.r.l (Head Office: Rimini City, Italian Republic; Representatives: Denis Ubaldi and Raffaele Ubaldi; hereinafter "ROC") and bring the company under the Kubota Group umbrella.

  • Operation of Merger

  • ROC's Merger

1. Background and Objectives
  • Kubota has striven to develop its tractor implement (hereinafter "implements") business in hay & forage and arable farming markets globally with the acquisition of Kverneland in Europe and Great Plains Manufacturing in the United States in an effort to capitalize on their high-level technical capabilities and implement brand power.
  • ROC is a specialized manufacturer of implements called Mergers that are used to swath cut crops and have become popular in recent years among large-scale dairy farmers and contractors. ROC Mergers better separate dirt, rocks, and other contaminates than conventional implements used for the same applications. Implements producing hay with fewer contaminates achieve high-quality feed production and are expected to provide other benefits, such as a higher yield of milk from dairy cattle and better health of livestock.
  • Large-scale dairy farmers and contractors who use these kinds of Mergers are an important target demographic as Kubota and Kverneland expand business into hay & forage markets. ROC offers a comprehensive lineup of small to large implement products. By bringing ROC into the Kubota Group as a subsidiary to strengthen its hay & forage products for the same customer demographic, Kverneland will accelerate business growth toward the expansion of its implement business in Europe.
