7-Eleven is the company that is looking to outbid Alimentation Couche-Tard for casey’s General Stores, offering $2 billion or $40 per share for the company’s 1,500 stores in the Midwest.

Casey’s has been fighting the Couche-Tard offer, which started at $36 per share, saying that it under-valued the company. The New York Times reports that Casey’s management is talking to 7-Eleven about a possible friendly deal between the two companies - though Casey’s says that $40 per share still is on the low side.
