Hillshire Brands pulls Pinnacle Foods offer

Hillshire Brands (HSH) withdraws its acquisition offer for Pinnacle Foods (PF).

The company's board says it determined that a sale to Tyson Foods provided a more favorable course for shareholders than the Pinnacle Foods buyout.

Pinnacle Foods is entitled to receive a termination fee of $43M, followed by another $120M if certain circumstances occur.

    A 2 year old could have figured this out weeks ago and they would have only required a an ice cream cone for payment.
