It will also begin preparations in the coming months for an IPO that it believes will give it a higher valuation than the acquisition proposals it received, the people added. C. Dean Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management, LLC tried to divest Hostess Brands, LLC for $2.3 billion but dropped the sale in the last few days after failing to get offers at the expected price.
