Diamond pays P&G $1.5bn for Pringles

first_img PROCTER & Gamble has agreed to sell potato crisps brand Pringles to Diamond Foods, in a deal worth $1.5bn (£921.6m) in shares.Offloading the 45-year-old brand, known for its crisps sold in more than 140 countries, will mark the conglomerates departure from the food sector.US-based Diamond Foods, which owns a variety of snack brands including Kettle chips, will triple the size of its existing business with the purchase.Diamond will pay using 29.1m shares of common stock and will take on Pringles’ $850m of debt.The deal is expected to be tied-up by the end of this year, which will require Diamond to pay about $100m to complete the merger.The California-based snack company, which also owns Emerald nuts and Pop Secret microwave popcorn, is projecting net sales of about $1.8bn by 2012.The firm expects to see its sales more than double in the US and UK by adding Pringles to its stable.The deal will also give Diamond a foothold in the fragmented snack market, currently dominated by PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay snack business.Janney Capital Markets analyst John San Marco said: “It is still a fraction of Frito-Lay’s snack business, literally about one-tenth of the size.“Aside from Frito-Lay, there are no other real true global powerhouses. Pringles is certainly in better strategic hands as part of a dedicated snack business.” whatsapp More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Tags: NULL Tuesday 5 April 2011 8:40 pm Share whatsapp Diamond pays P&G $1.5bn for Pringles Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

Abortion-rights protesters descend on Supreme Court in wake of state bans

first_imgYinYang/iStock(WASHINGTON) — Amid an influx of abortion-rights protests converging on state capitols, town squares and courthouses across the country Tuesday, seeking to counter an onslaught of anti-abortion bills sweeping across state legislatures, a slate of 2020 White House hopefuls may join protestors on the steps of the Supreme Court.Among the 2020 candidates expected to voice support for abortion rights in the midst of a heated political battle are Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, who once was anti-abortion but flipped his stance as he’s moved further left over the years. California Congressman Eric Swalwell is one of the confirmed speakers for the planned demonstration. The event is set to begin at noon, as abortion-rights advocates seek to “fight back against this unconstitutional attempt to gut Roe and punish women,” according to the #StopTheBans website. The slew of protests were triggered by GOP-led efforts to pass restrictive anti-abortion measures aimed at fomenting a larger battle over Roe v. Wade in the nation’s highest court.Several states are seeking to mount legal challenges to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, including Missouri, which on Friday passed the most recent ban — state lawmakers charged ahead with an eight-week abortion ban with no exceptions for rape, incest or survivors of human trafficking. Missouri Gov. Mike Parson is expected to sign the restrictive bill into law in the coming days.Missouri followed a wave of conservative states passing restrictive abortion bans, including Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia. Lawmakers in those states approved “heartbeat” bills, which ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected — as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.Alabama’s ban, signed into law by Gov. Kay Ivey last week, imposes the harshest limitations of any state in the country — a near-full ban on the procedure, not providing for any window of a pregnancy when abortion is legal.“Across the country, we are seeing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access,” states the event’s website, which is hosted by groups such as NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, All* Above All Action Fund, the ACLU and the Women’s March. “This is Trump’s anti-choice movement … and it’s terrifying, particularly for women of color and low-income women who are most affected by these bans. … Politicians shouldn’t be making decisions best left to women, their families and their doctors.”Amid the the cacophony of outrage from abortion-rights groups, many among the field of 2020 Democratic hopefuls vying for the White House immediately condemned the anti-abortion efforts last week.“It’s nothing short of an attack on women’s basic human rights and civil rights, and it’s something women in America will have to fight against with everything they’ve got,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said on MSNBC.“Access to safe, legal abortion is a constitutional RIGHT. Full stop,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wrote on Twitter.“The Alabama legislature is ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing women,” Buttigieg tweeted. “Instead, the government’s role should be to make sure all women have access to comprehensive affordable care, and that includes safe and legal abortion.”“Republicans in AL, FL, GA, and OH are ushering in laws that clearly violate Roe v Wade and they should be declared unconstitutional,” former Vice President Joe Biden shared on Twitter. “Roe v Wade is settled law and should not be overturned. This choice should remain between a woman and her doctor.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

MLB All-Star reveals why he’s opting out for 2021 season amid $70M contract

first_imgMarch 5, 2021 /Sports News – National MLB All-Star reveals why he’s opting out for 2021 season amid $70M contract FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGabriel Christus / ESPN ImagesBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Ian Desmond, a two-time Major League Baseball All-Star at the top of his professional game, stunned sports fans when he decided to stop playing. The 35-year-old Colorado Rockies centerfielder and father of five spoke exclusively to ABC News’ Good Morning America in his first interview since opting out of a second consecutive season and revealed the complexities behind the catalysts for his decision to walk away from the diamond.“There was a lot of things going on,” he said thinking back to last year. “We had the George Floyd events. We had the pandemic obviously was setting in, and my wife and I were about to have our fifth baby.”Just last week Desmond took to social media to share his thoughts on the sport that shaped him and his future with Major League Baseball. “Over the last few months, I’ve had tough conversations. I’ve asked a lot of questions and done a lot of thinking. For now, I’ve decided to opt out of the 2021 season,” he wrote in a post. “The COVID-19 pandemic has made this baseball season one that is a risk I am not comfortable taking.”Part of those “tough conversations” included leaving behind his $13.56 million salary.“I think the first one is walking away from a lot of money,” he said. “My desire to be with my family is greater than my desire to go back under these circumstances and play … that time with my kids is always so precious. So to me, that will always trump money.”But other issues were at play for Desmond after he decided not to participate in the 2020 season. “The biracial seat is a completely unique experience, and there are so many times you feel like you belong everywhere and nowhere at once,” he wrote in an Instagram post.He told GMA that “like most biracial people will say it’s not that it’s necessarily racism, it’s more of– just constant — jabs. Like, ‘Oh, you’re not black because I don’t talk.’ And I said, ‘well, I don’t wear certain clothes. I don’t do certain things, listen to the music.’ But I’m also not necessarily white.” Desmond called it “an internal feeling” of questioning “where exactly do I belong as a biracial man in the world and in the clubhouse?”Now, he has made it his mission to make sure all kids feel like they belong and teamed up with The Boys and Girls Clubs of America to found Newtown Connection, an organization that aims to empower and educate underprivileged youth through sports. “I hope that that kids of all colors, of all races, all ethnicities, all ethnicities, everything can experience the life lessons that come from playing baseball, perseverance, determination, character,” Desmond said. “I feel like it’s kind of being deprived in the inner cities and like the untouched areas. Baseball is a beautiful game and it’s got a rich history for a reason.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. Beau Lundcenter_img Written bylast_img read more
