|Another excellent contract with one the world leaders in salmon production....
7 March 2017
Benchmark Holdings plc
("Benchmark" or the "Company")
Contract win for Benchmark
Benchmark announces today that it has signed a long-term agreement with SalMar ASA ("SalMar") to provide genetics, health and knowledge services to the company. The full suite of services the Company is providing illustrates Benchmark's leading position in the market, as well as its ability to offer a wide spread of products and solutions across the salmon's life cycle. SalMar is one of world's leading salmon producers.
Benchmark will, through it's subsidiary SalmoBreed AS, form a 50/50 joint venture for the production of SalMar's salmon strain, Rauma. This joint venture to be called 'SalMar Genetic AS', will be formed by a demerger of SalMar's salmon production facility in Reistad, Norway. Benchmark will take full responsibility for managing the breeding programme through its subsidiary Akvaforsk Genetics Center AS.
The agreement also includes sales of eggs from Benchmark's land based sites in Iceland and once commissioned from its Salten site in Norway. The Benchmark group will also provide fish health services, diagnostics, and health products.
Malcolm Pye, CEO of Benchmark, said;
"We are delighted to sign an agreement with such a blue-chip partner in the salmon market. It is testament to our customers' recognition of the benefits of our growing, integrated package of products and services, as well as our ability to enhance value for producers and contribute towards the overall sustainability of the aquaculture industry."|
|Ferd add another 20m shares at 97p to take their stake over 16%....clearly the Norwegians seem to like their Benchmark salmon amongst other treats BMK has to offer.
Big vote of confidence, not that it was needed !|
|Good to see a big Norwegian player increase their stake to 12.8%
|Good to see Non Exec Kevin Quinn RNS of 25k buy shares @ circa 94p yesterday.....|
|Aha Janeann - we meet again !
I thought our investing styles were similar so I guess our paths cross frequently and I am pleased that we are doing well (atleast for now in a bull market).
BMK is another of my decent sized holds - I think that the company has developed a great IP portfolio with multiple revenue streams, in different countries, across a range of sectors and this de-risks the company massively IMHO.
I think that there is a real possibility of a takeover in due course given the barriers to entry by one of the agri giants.
It was a steal when I started buying in the late 50s price range. I am confident that we will see a multipound share price over the next 3-5 years.
Good luck :)
Good decision re BOO - our values and principles are more important than a few pieces of silver !|
|well multib - didn't realise you were here!
Look like sells to me given the times of trade. Hope not - I just getting into profit on these!
and thanks for the heads up re boo on that thread - sold out completely - hadnt realised there was a second dispatches on boo - and now watching the programme. Right decision me thinks|
|Two massive trades - 1m and 600k at 109.50 and bid has moved up....probably buys ?
Clearly out of the ordinary !|
|It's a great ride enjoying this huge profit|
|Looks way overvalued to me.|
|Company webinar yesterday which although just running through the annual report probably responsible for todays bounce. Basically reiterated all their positive news. Sold half my holding this morning (bought and been adding since June @62p) - can see it falling back to 90p before next leg up at which point i will buy again. Still a lot further to go in this.|
|Quite a bit of strength here at the moment.|
|Cumbrian2...agree that this is going to be a big gainer this year and beyond.
It's on my UK Stock Challenge entry list for 2017 - I seem to have been the only backer for BMK :)
Good luck all !|
|Make that 20% up ytd!
Thought this might have been a SCSW Nap this year -looks like it maybe should have been!|
|Really quiet board but currently showing exceptional strength nice 16% rise so far this month alone. Long may it continue! Long term hold for me|
|Looks like it!...... & I hope so.|
|Is there a leak that the results next week are going to be very positive?|

|Yep, Salmon prices surging. Eg...
30 per cent increase for salmon
Norway has exported salmon to a value of NOK 44 billion so far this year. This is an increase of 30 per cent or NOK 10.1 billion compared to the same period last year. The average price for whole fresh salmon in the month of September was NOK 54.59 per kg compared with NOK 41.70 per kg in September 2015.
”The export price for fresh whole salmon so far this year has been 41 per cent higher than during the same period last year. This is due to a combination of reduced export volumes and a strong demand for Norwegian salmon. In the last two months, however, export volumes have increased compared to the same period in 2015, which has meant that the price of salmon has been somewhat reduced. The price for fresh whole salmon in September was NOK 12.89 per kg higher than in September 2015, which underpins the strong demand for Norwegian salmon”, says Morten Lindrupsen, Analyst with the Norwegian Seafood Council.|
|Salmon devotees to fork out more after prices leap|
|Doesn't need a nap, said Nap.
I'm holding in here anyway..........|
|No nap but chart looking strong i.e. The start of a sustained step pattern. Bought back in this am|
|SCSW due out 14/1 ...|
|Good to se the continued recovery. I suspect that these will be a Nap tip in the next SCSW. Looks like a good long term hold for me|
|Any pertinent reasons stand out? cheers.|
