Stock Chart for Bravo Brio Restaurant Group Inc (BBRG)
“There has been no dialogue with Darden about an acquisition,” Ashley Swenson, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mail today. Bravo Brio is “very confident that we can continue to grow as a public company,” she said.
Stephen Anderson, an analyst at Miller Tabak & Co. in New York, last week said that Columbus, Ohio-based Bravo Brio may be a “good strategic opportunity for an acquisition” and named Darden as a possible suitor.
Rich Jeffers, a spokesman for Orlando, Florida-based Darden, declined to comment in an e-mail.
