  • Coke to buy RB !!!

    Look for Coke to buy RB in 2005!!!

    Coke has been taking it on the chin and will not think twice about dumping a whole lot of cash on top of RB's heads!

    Coke is looking for a shot in the arm and RB would be a perfect fit.

    Where would that leave distributors? Out in the cold maybe but with Coke's distribution the days of the RB mini van may be numbered.

    Just my opinion!

      E-dude, wanna take odds that that won't happen? When was the last time Coke bought out any beverage company. Would they buy Red Bull global? NOT!

        Why not buy RB Global??? They have the money and the desire to grow and growth has not been rampant at Coke!

        Coke buying RB would be a good move for Coke!

          Red Bull is not for sale so this thread is irrelevent.

          Yes Coke has the money, but Red Bull will not sell it to Coke, nor anyone else.

              Wait...didnt Edude go on and on and on about how Coke doesnt care about energy drinks, and that RB's sales insignificant and how Coke would not spend money to waste on the energy drink market....yet all of a sudden they are willing to buy RB...sorry...I like how you jump back and forth though. They bought Odwalla, and Odwalla still runs their own routes. But I am sure Coke wasted a ton of money to get Full Throttle going to throw it all away one a brand like RB that Coke could care less about.

                  I really do not understand why so many get worked up over Edudes posts. Even this sight can use the entertainment. Edude, keep up the good work. You keep me coming back for laughs on tap!

                    Coca Cola Poised for Red Bull
                    Takeover in '05




                    Coca Cola has been secretly gearing up to initiate
                    a buyout offer for the popular Red Bull Energy
                    Drink. Declining sales in North America and its own
                    failure to develop its own energy drink has
                    prompted Coca Cola to take action. Red Bull
                    Energy drink is the number one selling energy drink
                    in North America. The Red Bull buyout is
                    speculated to take place in mid 2005

                      Well, some secret THAT turned out to be. Everyone knows about this buyout except all of us here at Red Bull. When WILL we take the blinders off?

                        Stranger things have happened... why would they tell you? It does make sense RB would have access to Coke's distribution channels.
                        Sales would soar with additional outlets.

                          Edude, then you would have to watch out with your BIB. Coke would probably turn RB into a BIB item as well to go into all their fountain systems in bars.
                          Your right, anything could happen. I dont see it happening though, but you never know.

                            If your original intention for this post was to merely specualate, then I am in good company if I now proclaim that Dirty Dan's Eatible Underwear Co. is slated to buy out Sum Poosie in 2005.

                              Wow Fruity...... Your taking this kind of hard but it still makes sense.

                              Coke is much larger and doesn't quite understand the energy drink business so why not buy RB.

                              It is a great deal for both !!! Look for a deal sometime after summer 2005.
