takeover offer from PepsiCo. In May, PepsiCo offered Pepsi Bottling and PepsiAmericas ( PAS) $6 billion to buy the remaining stake in both companies. The bottlers rejected the offer, saying it was too low. While the buzz over the deal has somewhat fizzled, PepsiCo's CEO Indra Nooyi says it's still highly interest in acquiring the bottler, Reuters has reported. As PepsiCo reassess its offer, Pepsi Bottling has been on a buying binge of its own. Over the last several months the company has announced plans to acquire about five bottlers. Looking forward, the company said it expects full-year earnings to be on the high-end of its prior forecast of $2.30 to $2.40 a share.
