The Secret Recipe for Why Coca Cola will NEVER Go Private


Talk surfaced today that Warren Buffett, who owns 9% of Coca-Cola, could be interested in taking Coca-Cola private. As no surprise this zany idea was put forth by disgruntled Coca-Cola shareholder David Winters, who has done verbal battles with Buffett on the topic of Coke’s compensation plan. Brian Sozzi, CEO of Belus Capital Advisors and Analyst at TheStreet, shares why this going private talk on Coca-Cola is pure silliness. One consideration is the size of a hypothetical deal and the subsequent financing needed to make it come together. The second reason relates to one closely guarded secret of Coca-Cola.
