    Who cares about Pringles deal..let them walk

    "and then spin off to PG share holders.

    That's also a good alternative."

    PG's deal with DMND is using a Morris Trust for the tax advantages it offers. The method you suggest would not be as efficient; otherwise, why didn't PG simply spin off Pringles to its shareholders (and other divested assets) in the first place?
