McCormick Drops Plan to Buy Premier Foods

The company was going to spend more than $2B for the acquisition

McCormick Non Vtg (NYSE:MKC) will no longer be acquiring Premier Foods.

McCormickThe spices and herbs manufacturer had originally planned to buy the London-based food manufacturer for a reported 1.5 billion pounds ($2.1 billion). Premier Foods makes Mr Kipling cakes and other pastries.

McCormick revealed that the bid was withdrawn due to the fact that the company was unable to form a proposal that would appease both its shareholders and the Premier Foods board.

MKC stock is down 2.2% Wednesday.
