Since Hostess Brands Inc. was unable to resolve issues with its striking bakers’ union, the Twinkies and Wonder Bread maker will seek a liquidation process on Monday, Nov. 26, leaving dealmakers wondering which companies are likely to show interest in acquiring the many assets that are up for grabs.
