Swift & Co. On The Block

HM Capital Partners has put meatpacker Swift & Co. on the block, just months after a federal raid on illegal immigrants resulted in 1,282 Swift workers being arrested. HM and fellow shareholder Booth Creek Management have retained JPMorgan to review strategic and financial alternatives. The two firms acquired Swift from ConAgra Foods in 2002 for approximately $1.4 billion. www.swiftbrands.com
