No Qualified Offer For Twinkies Business Of Hostess Brands

Hostess Brands, Inc. said that it received no qualified offers by the bid deadline of March 11, 2013, other than offers for "stalking horse" bid of $410 million by Apollo Global Management, LLC and C. Dean Metropoulos & Co. As a result, no auction would be held. Dean Metropoulos, founder of Metropoulos said, "Our family is thrilled to have the opportunity to reestablish these iconic brands with new creative marketing ideas and renewed sales efforts and investment. We look forward to having America's favorite snacks back on the shelf by this summer. We are also ecstatic to bring jobs back to many cities across the country." The U.S. Bankruptcy Court had been set to have an auction among qualified bidders on March 14, 2013, but Hostess notified the court late March 11, 2013, that no other qualified bids had been submitted. That means the $410 million bid wins by default with no further approval of the court being required. Hostess will ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to approve the transaction at a hearing March 19, 2013.
