    • Worried? Doubt it. See major opportunity? Most likely.

      Dunkin could buy them and instantly have $475 Million Jump in 2013 Revenues - up from estimated $717 Million for Dunkin in 2013. Also, Dunkin could obviously supply coffee to KKD and with Dunkins infrastructure expand the KKD footprint in a BIG WAY in a very cost effective manner.

      Dunkin has estimated $717 Million in 2013 Revenues with a $3.4 Billion Market Cap.

      Krispy Kreme has estimated $475 Million in 2013 Revenues with a $750 Million Market Cap.

      A combination would seemingly be very cost effective for Dunkin at anything below $1.4 Billion +/-.

      • Dunkin may have already been trying to get their frosting covered paws on KKD and were just waiting for the previous poison pill to expire.

        Now that KKD has adopted another - 6 year OPTIONAL poison pill...

        Maybe it will result in Dunkin making a reasonable offer in lieu of a possible LOW BALL attempt in the past to get KKD.
