Capri Sun Owners Wild, KKR to Consider $2 Billion Sale

Wild Flavors GmbH owner Hans-Peter Wild and buyout firm KKR & Co. are exploring strategic options including a sale of the maker of flavorings for food and beverages that could fetch as much as $2 billion, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The 83-year old producer of the Capri Sun juice drink, based in Zug, Switzerland, is working with Citigroup Inc. to help with a potential deal, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plan is private. The process is in early stages and may lead to a sale, though an initial public offering is also an option, they said.
