The company said its defined benefit pension scheme was closed to future accrual, “further reducing our corporate risk profile”.
I also reckon AG Barr (LSE: BAG) could see investors pile back in with gusto, possibly as soon as the firm’s next trading statement (full-year financials are scheduled for Tuesday, March 28).
Due to recent market difficulties at home, the number crunchers expect AG Barr’s recent record of decent earnings growth to grind to a halt with a 2% decline in the year to January 2017. But the beverages behemoth is anticipated to rebound with rises of 4% and 5% in fiscal 2018 and 2019 respectively.
Subsequent P/E ratios of 18.2 times and 17.5 times may be slightly toppy, but I believe the Irn Bru maker’s rising success across the globe merits these premium values.
AG Barr announced in February that “our second half trading performance strengthened,” helped by new product introductions like Rubicon Spring and IRN-BRU XTRA. The manufacturer now expects full-year like-for-like revenues to have risen 1.5% last year.
While trading conditions in the UK remain difficult, I am confident that the company’s drive to reduce the amount of sugar in its drinks in line with changing consumer habits should help to mitigate the worst of these troubles. And looking further down the line, I believe AG Barr’s improving momentum across The Americas should deliver excellent returns.
|Have BAG missed the Gin trend, tonic water, gin mixers etc - even Funkin only bases its mixers on Rum and Vodka.. ??
Asleep to Gin ?|

|'AG Barr to halve sugar content in Irn Bru'
|1st march Whitman Howard hold tp 600p
A.G. BARR today confirms that by accelerating its long-standing sugar reduction programme, over 90% of its company owned soft drinks portfolio by volume will contain less than 5g of total sugar per 100ml by the autumn of this year.
This successful reformulation programme now includes the iconic IRN-BRU brand, which will see its sugar content reduced in line with changing consumer tastes and preferences.|
