The French giant Danone announced its offer to acquire American organic food producer The WhiteWave Foods Company; and the American confectionery giant Mondelez International announced its offer to acquire The Hershey Company. The common element between these two offers is that both target American companies, which means that both deals aim to increase the acquirers’ presence in the US.

Now the markets have their Black Friday. The day is 24 June 2016 and the pound sterling has once again played a leading role.
