business news in context, analysis with attitude

Wendy’s International reportedly will explore a possible sale of the company, a move that comes after, as the New York Times writes, “a whirlwind year for the company, which has spun off its Tim Hortons coffee-and-doughnut chain, shed its money-losing Baja Fresh Mexican Grill and laid off employees at its corporate office.”

Profits have not been where management would like them, and the company had been planning a restructuring. But now it appears that a sale could be seen as a better way to maximize shareholder value.
