>I've been following the mergers in alcohol and wine because I follow Constellation Brands. A teacher back in high school who took us to Merill Lynch in Rochester for field trip 1978. He bought 100 shares (Canandaigua Wine back then) every year he took that field trip. It was not a good investment back then. I can only wonder if he held.

>I also think STZ would be a good Buffett fit.

Well there goes the Jack & Coke theory. <g>

RE- MNTX Speculation- A speculative hypothetical acquisition due to the elimination of competitor pick. Annual Meeting coming up June 1. IMO bringing ASV public puts a realistic market valuation to the unit. Beforehand MNTX owing 51% and TEREX owning 49%. One has to remember the ASVI acquisition by TEX in 2008 for 488 million. In hindsight, a big overpay. IMO this sets up the unit for a possible acquisition in due time by a good established dealer network ASV competitor. IMO CAT's already a customer and make sense. RE- P.S. After all, they cashed in some 100 million+ the first time. This also being at a big discount from the TEX purchase price. If and when this hypothetical happens. MNTX gets the exit it now seeming wants to concentrate on it's mainstays. Proceeds most likely improving on a much improving balance sheet. IMO this now sets up a MNTX catalyst for the elimination of a competitor pick among competitors. It also gives TEX the chance to buy MNTX at a reasonable valuation to add to their crane lines. A little kicker TEX already owns 6.8% of MNTX. MWMMI- long the common & Call options presently. Ive been extending the boom, but I could still drop it.

P.S.
Snip>Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) a large ASV customer and owner of 23.5% of ASV shares, has indicated its support for the merger.

A takeout on the downswing. With new oil drilling currently depressed. Takeouts, consolidations, & mergers seem the best way to get through tough times. A leader in oil service. GE took the step awhile back. RE-

New buy today ANDE Andersons. IMO this recent Bunge/Glencore failed deal might once again stir up interest in a Glencore /Andersons deal.

RE/The start of a infrastructure acquisition trend ?

Deere to Acquire Gigantic Construction Equipment Company

June 5, 2017 10:32 AM










Deere plans to maintain the Wirtgen Group's existing brands, management, manufacturing footprint, employees and distribution network.

Deere & Company announced June 2 that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Wirtgen Group, the world’s largest road construction equipment manufacturer.

Deere plans to buy the German-based company for EUR 4.357 billion in an all-cash transaction (about $5.2 billion based on current exchange rates). Wirtgen Group specializes in brands that span the entire road construction sector, including milling, processing, mixing, paving, compaction and rehabilitation. Wirtgen’s global footprint includes around 8,000 employees across more than 100 countries connected by a large network of company-owned and third party dealers.

“The acquisition of the Wirtgen Group aligns with our long-term strategy to expand in both of John Deere’s global growth businesses of agriculture and construction,” says Samuel R. Allen, Deere & Company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Wirtgen’s superb reputation, strong customer relationships and demonstrated financial performance are attractive as we expand the reach of John Deere construction equipment to more customers, markets, and geographies.”

Max Guinn, President of Deere’s Worldwide Construction & Forestry Divison, says spending on road construction and transportation projects is less cyclical and has grown at a faster rate than the overall construction industry.

“There is recognition globally that infrastructure improvements must be a priority, and roads and highways are among the most critical in need of repair and replacement.

Deere’s board of directors approved the transaction, and the purchase is still subject to regulatory approval in several jurisdictions and must meet other customary closing conditions.
