18:31 EDTHSH, TSNTyson, Hillshire Brands announce extension of tender offer for Hillshire shares
Tyson Foods (TSN) and The Hillshire Brands Company (HSH) announced that, on August 12, each received a request for additional information, often referred to as a "second request," from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in connection with Tyson's proposed acquisition of Hillshire Brands. Each second request was issued pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. The second requests relate only to a very small portion of the combined Tyson/Hillshire Brands business, and the parties are working expeditiously to resolve this matter with the Antitrust Division. As a result of the second requests, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated July 1, by and among Tyson, HMB Holdings, Inc. and Hillshire Brands, Tyson has extended the offering period of its previously announced tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Hillshire Brands for $63.00 per share in cash, without interest, subject to any withholding of taxes required by applicable law and upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated July 16. The Offer, which was previously scheduled to expire August 12, has been extended until August 19, unless it is extended further under the circumstances set forth in the Merger Agreement. All terms and conditions of the Offer shall remain unchanged during the extended period. Tyson and Hillshire Brands continue to expect that the transaction, which remains subject to customary closing conditions, will be completed by or before September 27.

An Iowa farm with about 5.3M chickens in Osceola County is the latest, and largest, chicken flock to be affected by an ongoing outbreak of avian influenza, or bird flu, reported The Wall Street Journal. The addition of this large flock brings the total number of chickens and turkeys affected by avian influenza to nearly 8M, the report noted. Last night, Hormel Foods (HRL) provided additional information regarding the anticipated impact of recent avian influenza outbreaks on its Jennie-O Turkey Store segment, stating that lower turkey supply is expected to impact plant operations and cause reduced sales volumes as the year progresses. Other publicly traded companies in the meat production space include Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), Sanderson Farms (SAFM) and Tyson Foods (TSN). Reference Link
