Blog: Olly WehringTom 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.
