The Wall Street Journal’s Liz Hoffman and Dana Mattioli report Burger King is in talks to buy Tim Horton’s to pull off a “tax inversion” that would allow it to avoid U.S. taxes.
The new holding company would be based in Canada, the pair report.
“One of the people said a deal between the two companies could be struck soon, though additional details on timing couldn’t be learned,” they write. “Together the restaurant companies have a market value of about $18 billion.”
The deal would create the world’s third-largest fast food enterprise.
While this is mainly for the tax implications, would it mean more Tim Horton’s in the US? (There are a small number in the US including some on military installations.)
