  • Does this mean (PEP) will eventually spin-off its snack business with the merged (MDLZ) business?

  • There was some talk that PEP could spin off their snacks division to concentrate on the beverage side only.

  • Offhand, I do not see Pepsico spinning off its snacks business
    period. I could be wrong. But they are not making money with the
    beverages. Coca Cola is a formidable competitor.
