Campbell Soup to buy snacks maker Snyder’s-Lance for $4.87 billion

(Reuters) – Campbell Soup Co (CPB.N) will buy Pretzels and Cape Cod chips maker Snyder‘s-Lance Inc (LNCE.O) for $4.87 billion as it looks to expand its snack business amid sagging soup sales.

Campbell said on Monday it would pay Snyder’s shareholder $50 per share in cash.

The offer represents a 27 percent premium to Snyder’s close on Wednesday, a day before CNBC first reported that the company had hired an investment bank to weigh a potential sale following an approach from Campbell.
