Suntory will pay 2.6 billion euros ($3.86 billion) for Orangina, two sources familiar with the situation had told Reuters in September.
Orangina — whose brands include Snapple, Oasis and La Casera — is the second-largest European producer in the still soft drinks market.
Blackstone and Lion had bought the producer of Orangina and Schweppes drinks for $2.6 billion in 2006, investing roughly $600 million of their own capital. ($1=.6731 EURO)
