Ahold: the last days of Disco

Scandal-ridden Ahold can't afford any more nasty surprises, so it's focusing on mature markets. For a healthier firm, however, Ahold's South American businesses are a strong opportunity. Emerging markets specialist Tesco understandably decided in March not to buy out the struggling Dutch company - but its Brazilian unit could be another story.

Atol/KPMG: it's all about upsell

Atol has pipped KMPG Consulting US to the post, acquiring KPMG's Dutch and UK consultancy arms for $610 million.

The failure to secure antitrust immunity could also damage BA and AA's Oneworld alliance. Suddenly a merger with KLM looks more promising, even though there are still plenty of obstacles in the way of that partnership.

Carling: a new bidder

While Cinven would benefit from Mr Napier's knowledge of the business, Carling may not be an ideal candidate for a private equity bid. The company would fit much better with Heineken's strategic interests, but the Dutch brewer is already facing distribution challenges, which Carling would make all the greater.

Corus: muddled thinking

When Corus was formed in 1999, it hoped to grow by diversifying from steel - but a corporate rethink has overturned these plans. Not only is the firm now spinning off its non-steel businesses, it's merging with Brazil's CSN, thereby guaranteeing ore supplies.
