NCA SmartBrief | Jan 22, 2015

Tootsie Roll Industries CEO Melvin Gordon has died at 95, after half a century in charge of the publicly traded maker of Tootsie Rolls, Junior Mints and other candies. The Gordon family holds a controlling stake in the company and has long been quiet on its workings. With Gordon's wife, Ellen, taking over as CEO, investors speculated Wednesday that a sale is more likely. Slate (01/21) Bloomberg (01/21) New York Times (tiered subscription model), The (01/21)
