A consortium of investors led by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, Vestar Capital Partners and Centerview Partners entered into a definitive agreement over the Thanksgiving holiday to go back for seconds at Del Monte Foods (NYSE: DLM) in a transaction valued at $5.3 billion. The investing group will pay Del Monte shareholders $19 in cash per share, which represents about a 40% premium. BofA Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and KKR Capital Markets will be providing debt financing in support of the deal. Del Monte produces, distributes and markets pet products and food products. KKR formerly owned the company when it was part of RJR Nabisco.
