  •  RR- What is the liquidation endgame? (0+ / 0-)

    Obviously some of the assets will be sold.  The brand names are too valuable not to reappear somewhere.  Have any competitors been sniffing the carcass?  Bimbo's seems like a good match for some of it, they're expanding and already own Entenmanns.

    •  That's what I'm wondering now... (0+ / 0-)

      Clearly some of the "assets" are basicly scrap, but Hostess also has some fairly new bakeries that will be quite marketable. The Hostess brand has some value, but then again if there's no functioning Hostess Brands to protect the trademarks we'll quickly see a half dozen bakeries producing generic "twinkies", etc..
