Fortune to end Absolut venture and buy Cruzan

CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — Fortune Brands’ Beam Global will end its joint venture deal to distribute Absolut vodka in the U.S., turning over sole responsibility for the top-selling brand to new owner Pernod Ricard while also buying Cruzan rum and netting about $130 million in cash on top.

After the close of trading Thursday, Fortune announced the pact, which will accelerate the termination of the joint venture to distribute Absolut vodka here — originally slated to end in 2012 — to Oct. 1 in return for $230 million in cash. In addition, Beam will buy Cruzan from Pernod for $100 million.
