Ben & Jerry's may go private

Published on .

Ben & Jerry's Homemade, South Burlington, Vt., said it's in discussions with Unilever and investor group Meadowbrook Lane Capital to take the company private. Despite reports that the Ben & Jerry's board last week approved a transaction to place 36% of the company under the control of founder Ben Cohen, a similar amount under Meadow-brook and 28% under Unilever, Ben & Jerry's issued a statement denying that the transaction had been definitively approved.
