8.9.09 confectionery major Cadbury on Monday rejected the proposed buyout offer made by Kraft Foods Inc for 10.2 billion pounds, but
the American food and beverage group remains hopeful of carrying forward a constructive dialogue.

Kraft Foods said in a statement that it had made a proposal to combine the two companies but the Board of Cadbury plc has rejected this proposal. However, the statement added that, "Kraft Foods is committed to working toward a recommended transaction and to maintaining a constructive dialogue and is announcing this proposal as a means to encourage and further that process."

Kraft Foods proposed to takeover Cadbury for 300 pence in cash and 0.2589 new Kraft Foods shares per Cadbury share. This values each Cadbury share at 745 pence and valuing the firm at 10.2 billion pounds, the statement said.
