Tyson Foods makes a play for Michael Foods

  • Tyson Foods (TSN) made an offer for Michael Foods, according to Bloomberg.
  • The prepared foods business is owned by the P-E arm of Goldman Sachs (GS).
  • Inside sources think more bids in the neighborhood of $2B could come in from food companies and other P-E firms.
  • Michael Foods sells products under a number of brands that would be a good fit for Tyson - including Simply Potatoes, Papetti’s Easy Eggs, and Crystal Farms cheese.

    I hope so, I've owned GS for several years and have done very well with it.

    The newly formed company might be exposed to false rape allegations though.
