Based on many factors TR will possibly be acquired by a major competitor. Candy industry buyouts have accelerated in recent years. In 2008, Mars Inc. bought WM. Wrigley Jr. Co. with Warren Buffets help creating the third largest private company in America with revenue of $100 billion. In 2010, Kraft Foods Inc. acquired Cadbury PLC in a deal valued at over $19.5 billion. Last year, Hershey Co. bought Canadian confectioner Brookside Foods Ltd. Hershey is widely expected to make other acquisitions to boost sales. Given TR's ruling couples ages, the lack of any publicly disclosed succession plan, Possibly??? The Gordon's will look to sell TR to a company that is willing to preserve TR's traditions which is most important to Mr. & Mrs. Gordon. Mars, Inc. is a better candidate than Hershey Co. due to the Warren Buffet factor. Mr. Gordon is a lot like Mr. Buffet in his common sense approach to business. Mr. Buffet would recognize the true value of TR and it would remain a dominant force as a candy maker for years to come. Just my opinion...
