Mars, Incorporated Key Developments

KIND Reportedly Explores Stake Sale

KIND LLC has hired investment banks to advise on a minority stake sale it hopes will value the maker of the eponymous snack bars at more than $3 billion, including debt, according to people familiar with the matter. The stake sale will test the interest of some of the largest consumer food companies, which are looking to revitalize their sales as consumers turn to novelty and healthier alternatives. The process could attract large food companies such as Kellogg Company (NYSE:K), General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS), Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB), Pepsico, Inc. (NYSE:PEP) and Mars, Incorporated, the sources said. Kind is not offering the right to buy out the entire company down the line as part of the deal, one of the sources added. The sources requested anonymity because the process is confidential. BDT declined to comment and Centerview could not be immediately reached for comment.
