After a monthlong takeover struggle for Quaker Oats Co., PepsiCo Inc. agreed yesterday to acquire the company for about $13.4 billion in stock, executives close to the deal said. The transaction, which gives Pepsi control of Quaker's much-coveted Gatorade sports drink brand, is expected to be announced today, the executives said. The agreement for Quaker, based in Chicago, has been approved by the boards of both companies. It comes after a corporate contest that included the rejection of a first offer from PepsiCo, a preliminary bid from the Coca-Cola Co. that was rescinded after Coke's board blocked the deal, and maneuvers by Danone of France that were eventually abandoned.

He said that water doesn't rejuvenate, Gatorade doesn't satisfy, PowerAde tastes like colored water and All-Sport might as well be called "All-Soda."

If you got your kicks playing basketball for nine hours or biking up the Rockies, the beverage industry had a drink just for you.
