Ralcorp rejects third ConAgra proposal
ConAgra has hinted it could step up its pursuit of Ralcorp after the US food group suffered a third rejection by its quarry of its proposal – improved to $5.2bn – to buy the company.

Ralcorp said on Friday it had a rejected the latest $94 a share cash offer from ConAgra, having determined that the proposed separation of its Post cereals unit from its core private-label business would unlock “additional significant value for our shareholders”.

ConAgra countered on Sunday that it was ”extremely disappointed” at Ralcorp’s rapid dismissal of its proposal, which it said offered investors greater certainty than the planned separation.
