I have an archived article you might find to your interest.
I've followed Pactiv through it's acquisition. Also because it has major plant operations by me. Reynolds seems like the early Huntsman who made many acquisitions in the chemical field. IMO the jury won't be out for several years. No more so than Dow's acquisition of Rohm & Haas. The timing of that one was awful. They way over paid IMO, but were being forced through litigation to proceed. Huntsman itself was subject of a failed takeover. I do own BMS in the packaging field. I felt they got a great price on their purchase of Food Americas operations of Alcan Packaging.
