Nestlé is considering joining the battle for Cadbury as the US confectionery company Hershey puts the finishing touches to a counter-bid of its own. The British group is currently battling a 750p a share offer from Hershey's US rival, Kraft Foods, with the backing of shareholders who say that the offer is "too low". Cadbury has told all potential bidders that it will fight any bid lower than 850p a share and could even hold out for as much as 900p. Nestlé has not yet decided on whether to pursue an interest but talks at the Swiss company were last night said to be "serious".

Outlook With less than three weeks to go before Kraft must make a formal bid for Cadbury, the chocolatier is doing its best to make things sticky for its American suitor. Yesterday's blockbuster trading update gives further credence to Cadbury's insistence that it has a happy and prosperous future as an independent entity. Note also that the business continues to outperform Kraft itself, which should give shareholders pause for thought when the would-be acquirer offers its own paper as part of the deal.
