Wimm-Bill-Dann Deal Done

PepsiCo said Thursday that it has completed the acquisition of 66 percent of the Wimm-Bill-Dann juice and dairy company and it expects to make an offer for the remaining shares by March 11.

The $3.8 billion deal brings PepsiCo’s stake in Wimm-Bill-Dann’s ordinary shares to about 77 percent and makes PepsiCo the largest food and beverage business in the country. PepsiCo said it will offer $132 a share for the remaining shares. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
