Has anyone else heard that Monster (aka Hansens) is pretty close to selling out to Anheuser Busch? Is there any truth to these rumours?

I heard somewhere that Cadbury Schweppes was trying to make a move on Monster/Hansen's.

Thanks Lepke. Once I googled it I found all sorts of stuff. Looks like it's back to the drawing board for me. I've been wasting time trying to get AB dist's to take my product. All of them would say it's nice and the margins are great but at this time we will have to wait and see. I would ask what and see for what? And they would say we will have to wait and see.....

I guess I now I know what they are waiting for.
