British confectionary group Cadbury on Monday rejected a takeover bid from US giant Kraft Foods, describing the offer as insufficient.Cadbury management said it was offering shareholders maximum value by keeping the company independent, notably as it was raising its long-term financial targets."Kraft is trying to buy Cadbury on the cheap to provide much needed growth to their unattractive low-growth conglomerate business model," said Cadbury chairman Roger Carr in a circular to shareholders."Don?t let Kraft steal your company with its derisory offer."
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Takeover Panel granted confectionery maker Cadbury three extra days to publish 2009 results that could become a key plank in its defense against Kraft Food's hostile $10 billion bid.
Reuters - Kraft said it had a 1.52 percent take-up from Cadbury shareholder for its hostile bid, but most shareholders are expected to wait to see if Kraft raises its bid before making their decisions.
Reuters - Kraft and Cadbury chief executives were meeting their investors in the same London building to seek support in a bid battle after Cadbury asked the UK Takeover Panel to give a ruling on Kraft's 9.9 billion pound ($16.17 billion) bid.
