It’s hard for me to think of Tate & Lyle Plc (TATE) without immediately thinking “sugar”. However, in 2010 the sugar side of the business, including use of the Tate & Lyle Sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup brands, was sold to American Sugar Refining as part of a major restructuring of the company.

The Live and Televised Entertainment segment produces live events and provides content for its television and other programming; designs, markets, and distributes various WWE-branded products, such as t-shirts, caps, and other novelty items; and offers pay-per-view programs.
