Jun 1 14
Glanbia plc's (ISE:GL9) pursuit of Cytosport, Inc. has hit a speed bump as the sales process for the €360 million maker of the popular Muscle Milk brand is understood to have stalled. Glanbia was thought to have been in a shootout with Post Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:POST) to buy the specialist nutrition firm after other bidders dropped out. The WhiteWave Foods Company (NYSE:WWAV) and Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE:HRL) had been linked with early interest - It is understood the price tag of the brand is a principal sticking point for any potential deal. TSG Consumer Partners, owner of CytoSport, initially hired Credit Suisse AG to list the company on stock markets in 2013 but changed its mind and decided to examine a sale to trade or private equity buyers instead.
