Tyson makes $6.2 billion offer for Hillshire Brands after Pilgrim Pride's $5.58B
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Hillshire Brands has another suitor. Tyson Foods Co. is offering to buy Hillshire for $50 per share. That's $5 per share higher than Pilgrim's Pride offer earlier this week.
Hillshire Brands, which makes Ball Park hot dogs and Jimmy Dean sausages, has been trying to buy Birds Eye frozen vegetables maker Pinnacle Foods for $4.23 billion.
But Tyson, one of the world's largest meat-processing companies, said its offer would make a more profitable company.
The offer is a 35 per cent premium to Hillshire's closing price May 9, the day before Hillshire announced its Pinnacle acquisition bid. The offer is worth about $6.2 billion.
Hillshire said earlier it strongly believes in its deal with Pinnacle Foods but is reviewing Pilgrim Pride's $5.58 billion offer.
Hillshire could not immediately be reached about the Tyson offer.
