Blog: Tom Cruise IS PepsiCo
Olly Wehring | 4 June 2009
I trust many of you, like myself, are enjoying the push-me pull-you between PepsiCo and the bottlers PepsiAmericas and Pepsi Bottling Group.
The latest development, yesterday (3 June), saw PepsiCo claim that it has “a track record of being a disciplined buyer and will maintain that disciplined approach in this transaction”. To me, that looks clearly like a warning that it will not up its bid for the two companies.
Do you believe them? I don't. The number of protracted takeover bids that have followed this saga-like process and have still completed outnumbers those that haven't rather considerably.
Either way, I wouldn't be surprised that this sort of conversation will soon be had between the two sides, if it hasn't already.
