Don't mean to start any rumors here, but a friend of mine has heard this from someone who works at Pepsi.

If this were true what would this mean? Will current independant Monster distributors still be able to get it or would it be available exclusively through Pepsi reps?

Pepsi Canada has reached a distribution deal with Hansen's from what I have heard. Similar to the Hansen's AB deal in the US.

At first I thought it was just a rumor (could still be). However it's not that far fetched being that Pepsi only has 1 16oz SKU up here and that's regular No Fear. It's not doing well at all they are not pushing it at all up here. Coke on the other hand is going at it non-stop with new 16oz SKUs. This could be Pepsi's easy way to 6 extremely well selling 16oz SKUs in Canada..

I agree that it COULD happen, but no evidence to support that it has...info would effect the stock price, just trying to get the inside scoop.
