    • Tyson Foods (TSN) appears to have won the battle to buy Hillshire Brands (HSH), after offering $7.7B for the company, or $63 a share. The offer is nearly $1B more than the bid cast by Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) last week.
    • The deal is still not finalized, and can take a few days, if not more. Hillshire Brands cannot even make another deal until it terminates a previous merger agreement with Pinnacle Foods (PF), paying $163M towards a break-up fee.

    • A $6.4B offer by Pilgrim Pride's (PPC) to buy Hillshire Brands (HSH) could rattle the food sector.
    • For starters, the deal could spoil Hillshire's offer on the table to buy Pinnacle Foods (PF).
    • The quick analyst take on a PPC-HSH combination is favorable with the companies focused in different areas (chicken vs. packaged meat) which could lead to easy access to new distribution channels.
    • Premarket: HSH +22.9% to $45.49, PF -5.3% to $31.50.
    • Also on merger watch in the food sector: THS, SJM, GIS, KRFT, CPB, ADM, BGS, RAH, HAIN, K CAG
