From Investors Chronicle: Premier Foods (PFD) reported a 4 per cent increase in sales during the third quarter, brings year-to-date sales to a 2.6 per cent increase. This was mainly thanks to non-branded and international sales, while revenue from branded items was largely flat. The Batchelors brand saw its fourth consecutive quarter of growth. Yesterday the company addressed rumours that it is looking to sell the soup brand to Nissin, with which it already has a strategic partnership. The cost cutting programme is hoping to cut its debt burden by the end of the financial year. We’re waiting to see more details before getting bullish on Premier. Sell.

15 January 2018 Premier Foods plc (the "Group") Premier Foods plc notes weekend press speculation concerning a possible sale of its Batchelors' brand to Nissin Foods Holdings Co. Ltd ("Nissin"). The Board has made no changes to its strategy since the strategic update communicated in our preliminary results announcement on 16 May 2017. The Board remains focussed on our strategic objectives, including that of reducing the ratio of net debt to EBITDA below three times. On 29 June 2017 the company confirmed that, in line with good corporate governance, it regularly reviews options to deliver value for all its stakeholders. Such reviews do periodically involve discussions with third parties, including Nissin (with whom the company signed a Co-operation Agreement on 23 March 2016). There is no current situation where discussions have gone beyond an exploratory stage. As a matter of normal good governance, the Board continues to keep under review any options which could potentially add value for shareholders and other stakeholders, and accelerate the delivery of the Board's strategic objectives, particularly with respect to reducing gearing. Think that last paragraph speaks volumes. Creating shareholder value through the disposal of assets is good !

Tuesdays trade update.......An early insight.. Good news ! hTTp://www.cityam.com/278737/premier-foods-bags-up-pre-christmas-sales-boost Food giant Premier Foods is expected to post a rise in sales this week when it updates shareholders on its pre-Christmas trading. Premier Foods sales are tipped to rise by 2.5 per cent in the third quarter to £258m, with branded sales up by 1.6 per cent. Credit Suisse analysts said that the cold weather in December is likely to have favoured the food categories Premier Food specialises in. However, the update covers the 13 weeks to December, so it will not provide insight into Premier Food’s performance over Christmas. The majority of Premier Food’s sales are from its branded goods, but private label sales (16 per cent of the mix) are forecast to rise by six per cent over the quarter. Sales of private label goods are rising in supermarkets, as shoppers seek out value for money on essential items. The update follows on from a strong performance in the second quarter, when the food supplier and manufacturer bagged sales growth of 6.2 per cent. Kantar figures showed supermarkets celebrated six per cent growth on food and drink sales in December, suggesting there will be good news from Premier Foods in the fourth quarter.

Interesting news, thank you. I read Nissin had an IPO in Hong Kong last month. With a declared intention of spending about $45M on acquisitions. hTTp://www.foodbusinessnews.net/articles/news_home/International/2017/11/Nissin_Foods_noodle_unit_plann.aspx?ID=%7B553D48D9-19C7-4BA6-AB25-AF0C0DDB26F7%7D&cck=1

Do PFD still have 49% interest in Hovis brand? Grocer mag quote Hovis as 6th fastest growing product for 2017. I know they sold 51% in 2014 to Gores Group but haven’t kept up to date since then.

hTTps://www.moodys.com/research/Moodys-affirms-Premier-Foods-B2-CFR-and-assigns-a-PB2--PR_366578?amp;WT.mc_id=AM~UmV1dGVyc05ld3MyX1NCX0NWX1JhdGluZ19OZXdzX0FsbA%3d%3d~20170516_PR_366578 A few months old but still very much relevant. I had recorded somewhere (Cannot find where right now) that the current Moodys ratings equated to a shareprice of around 38p - 42p which probably explains why the shareprice has been trading between these levels since Moodys research in May. In all, 38p is a good buy. 42p is a good sell on current trading / forecasts. Negative outlook still so no pie-in-the-sky 60p level unless theres a bid.

Last week from Jefferies... Jefferies trims price target for Premier Foods ahead of interims Interims from Premier Foods should reveal a “sprightlier” second quarter on the top-line front but lower profits, according to broker Jefferies. The broker expects sales to be modestly down from last year’s £48mln at £47mln, with pre-tax profit dipping from £26mln at the halfway point last year to £23mln. “The big picture - of tough markets and nip and tuck on share - doesn't change and we apply some incremental caution to our top line forecasts. We welcome the arrival of new chair Keith Hamill, who has a rich but complex agenda to prosecute,” Jefferies said, as it trimmed its price target to 43p from 46p. Today from Jefferies... * "H1 was just ahead of our forecasts on sales, trading profit and net debt," Jefferies says * Q2 rev +6.2 pct with over 40 percent of growth coming from partnerships with Nissin and Mondelez strategic partnerships * "Q2 sales trends are encouraging and make for one of the more positive trading updates we have read from PFD in a long while," Jefferies adds

PFD has been trading solidly between 38p - 42p for the last 6 months The recent dip probably down to the general market sentiment turning negative recently / fears of falling sales at PFD as general retail figures have been horrific lately. Todays statement was a breath of fresh air. After a poor Q1, Q2 was excellent. Dare I even say the word 'growth' here. Jefferies only came out on the 8th Nov with a slightly bearish view and reduced price target on PFD. They have been made to eat their words today :-) Take advantage of the current price here as when market sentiment improves this will be back to 42p in a flash.

Is a target price range of 50 - 60p reasonable, I think so.
