Company Background

In February 2012, Diamond Food's bid to acquire Pringles from Procter & Gamble for $1.5 billion -- and thus become the second-largest snack company in terms of retail sales behind behind PepsiCo-owned Frito-Lay-- fell through due to an internal investigation into the company's payments to walnut growers. The board of Diamond Foods then announced that it was restating its financial results for two years and had replaced its CEO and CFO. The company had better success acquiring Kettle Foods in 2010 and the Pop Secret brand from General Mills (2008).
