Tyson Foods is exploring a bid on Michael Foods

Michael Foods Inc
January 16, 2014
According to reporting by Reuters Tyson Foods Inc (TSN.N) is exploring a bid for Michael Foods Group Inc, a deal that would combine one of the world's largest chicken processors with a large distributor of egg and dairy products.

A potential deal for Michael Foods, which is seen worth between $2 billion and $2.5 billion according to the people, would place Tyson, the nation's largest meat producer, into an adjacent category within poultry and protein.

Michael Foods, the egg and dairy products producer owned by Goldman Sachs Group Inc's (GS.N) private equity unit, is in the early stages of finding a buyer, and Tyson may ultimately choose not to move forward with an offer, the people cautioned.

Michael Foods is working with Goldman Sachs' investment banking unit and Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAC.N) on a potential sale, Reuters reported in December.

Minnetonka, Minnesota-based Michael Foods produces and distributes products including specialty eggs, refrigerated potatoes, cheese and other dairy products.
