Bernstein analyst Alexia Howard notes that Hershey (HSY) announced that it entered into a definitive agreement to buy Amplify Snack Brands (BETR) for about $1.6B, with the deal expected to close in Q1 FY18 and financed through cash and new debt. The analyst believes this deal appears to be a "reasonable strategic fit" for Hershey and will likely help the company diversify the business from confectionary into savory, better-for-you snacks. Howard also expects Hershey to leverage lessons learned from its past M&A activities to manage the Amplify brands prudently. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $124 price target on Hershey's shares.
