ConAgra’s Ralcorp Flop Invites Breakup Talk: Real M&A
Mon 7:00 pm ET (at Bloomberg)
The best way for ConAgra Foods Inc. (CAG) to commemorate the two-year anniversary of buying Ralcorp Holdings Inc. may be to undo the deal. Since ConAgra completed the $6.7 billion acquisition, it’s the only food-products maker in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index that’s handed losses to shareholders, making it one of the industry’s cheapest stocks. Chief Executive Officer Gary Rodkin last month announced plans to step down as he struggles to prove the purchase he oversaw was worth the money. It’s time for ConAgra’s board to evaluate options, including breaking up the $14 billion company and selling the pieces, according to Rhino Trading Partners LLC. ConAgra also could draw the attention of activist investors.
