    With the company yielding an ROI of 7% to 10% the Trust realizes that as an investment portfolio it would be difficult to duplicate that performance outside of the company. Deal is DOA

    It is not a good deal because the Trust realizes that it cannot get a better return on investment other than maintaining the status quo. HSY is a well run company with a great ROI. If they accepted the offer they would be faced with the problem of investing the proceeds of the sale in low yielding government bonds or a stock market that is highly risky. The Trustees made the right decision stay the course.
