Makes sense. No need to repurchase shares with the 600 million in cash. KO will use that cash to help with their 15 Billion dollar buyout of MNST with no longterm debt. No brainer here. Mark this post. Deal announced in 3rdQtr. KO will offer 5 for 2 stock swap for monster shares. KO needs Monster real bad to give them a shot-in-the-arm with additional revenue growth that KO is lacking in growth.
