French Government Announces Natural Zero-Calorie Sweetener Rebaudioside A (Reb A) Authorisation PureCircle announces that the French Ministry of Economy, Industry and Employment has published authorization for Reb A 97% purity and above, for use in food and beverage products sold in France. This single country authorization has been granted in line with Directives (CE) number: 1333/2008 and 89/107/CEE which permit a member state to authorise ingredients as safe for use for a maximum of two years, pending Europe-wide approval which is expected in 2010. This authorization permits food and beverage manufacturers to include the first natural zero calorie sweetener, Reb A at 97% purity and above, to their products. RNS from a few months back

Quite, not the brightest bulb on the planet, the share price says all. Trade what you see and 20% bounce so far, leave the fundies for Warren :-) Would have though Signet was a sure fire short?

with pharmaceuticals the drug company can apply for europe wide licence to market, one would have though that one one eu country has approved the rest will follow quite quickly. the product has great potential.

sleveen .... all that means is that the UK Food Agencies stance has not changed since they reviewed Stevia 7 years ago in 2002 ... the links not old it reflects the current position in UK and Europe ... that is the UK Food Agencies page for Stevia, they are not going to update it each year if they have not changed there view :-) So currently its a no in UK and Europe, except for France ... what about the USA?

The food standards agency link is over 7 years old and France has recently granted permission for reb A to be used there and it is likely that the rest of the EU will follow tout de suite :-)

Have been looking at this company and was also thinking about buying some Stevia to put in my coffee I was then surprised to come across this ... "As a result of the outcome of safety assessments which have been carried out Stevia and stevioside are not permitted for sale as food or food ingredients in the UK or elsewhere within the EU." ... http://www.food.gov.uk/multimedia/webpage/stevia So you can't sell it in Europe, not sure what the USA stance is ... I had noticed most deals had been in Asia and South Pacific On a more helpful note I found two recent brokers notes for Pure Circle ... http://www.agriprods.com/fileadmin/content/pdfs/Brokers_Notes_August_09/Brokers_Notes_Sept_09/Brokers_Notes_Oct_09/PURE%2030-10-09.pdf http://www.agriprods.com/fileadmin/content/pdfs/Brokers_Notes_August_09/Brokers_Notes_Sept_09/PURE%2023-09-09.pdf

cnx Their reserve of cash has certainly been consumed. Their pipeline is long enough to tie up large amounts of cash. They need much higher margin to be remotely self sustaining for finance. There are many examples of companies with rapid growth rate and paper profits yet very cash negative- Renesola is one which survives, Aero Inventory is one on the way out. OURE looks like a foregone marketing success. It is not yet clear that it will be an investment star, but it promises excitement and a bumpy ride.

i am not sure if pure is in agribusiness or oconsumer goods? is there a plan to market retail an own brand for coffeeshop tables as well supplying bulk processed stevia to the food manufacturers and the likes of pepsico as a substitute for HFS?

"Considering their sweetening capacity and the favourable physical and functional attributes, natural stevia-based sweeteners are compatible for use in a wide array of foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. Even so, significant flavour technology support is needed to produce an acceptable or superior tasting final product with stevia. This calls for an end user with technical know-how or a supplier who has the technical expertise to produce a customised tasteful product. "

you my as well burn the $25m now and get it over with - I'm no marketeer but it just sounds like they are pi$$ing into the wind trying to do that. They are obviously trying to create an "asparthame" type of brand for stevia and to get the market to accept theirs and dump all the alternatives. Just not going to happen in this day and age unless their version is so unique in taste experience over competitors or health wise. As far as I can see all the different brands are basically the same thing and the taste just comes from the particular recipe Pepsi or whoever come up with to mix with it. Health benefits don;t seem to have USP from one brand to another of stevia. At end of the day it will be down to price and volumes and you are much better off spending the $25m low balling for contracts and running competitors into bankruptcy than spedning it on a brand. Maybe thats the real plan but they can;t say that :-). This just reminds me of Clipper Windpower over and over. great potnetial , raising oodles of money constantly to realise that potential and then find at the end of the day the product is suddenly uneconomic or fallen out of favour or their are other products on the market which people move to.

raising money to spend on marketing usually sets off red lights and alarm bells in my mind. Especially as the marketing is to "raise consumer awareness of the benefits of stevia". It seems silly to waste money on promoting the generic product class rather than the specific brand. The equivalent in the aviation industry would be for BA to run an advertising campaign encouraging people to fly more.

Finncap today: PureCircle – PURE.L – (207.5p) – A somewhat surprising placing to raise $65m net PureCircle has announced a Placing of 20m shares at 200p, a discount of 3.6% to last night's closing price. This increases the equity base by 15.1% (an estimated 9.2% in terms of the average equity base for the year to end June 2010) and raises £40m gross or circa $67m which will be some $65m net of costs. The latter figure compares with net debt of $47.5m at end June 2009. The Placing has been "substantially oversubscribed". There may be raised eyebrows as PureCircle management had indicated with some vigour that it had adequate funds to complete the current supply chain expansion (due for completion at end calendar 2009). However, this is a different matter in that a further strengthening of the supply chain is planned (including a new stevia extraction facility in Paraguay where work will commence in early 2010/11 plus the holding of larger finished goods inventories in all key markets) as well as a major ($25m) marketing campaign in 2010 intended to raise consumer awareness of the benefits of stevia. The timing to the Placing seems somewhat odd though as the group had indicated previously that a) it has a market appraisal programme to evaluate the scope of Reb-A that is only likely to be completed in early 2010 and b) that adoptions of Reb-A in new food and beverage products are likely to be skewed to the start of calendar 2010. So is there already visibility of these new products in mid November that did not exist at the time of the preliminaries on 23rd September? The Placing does however suggest increased management confidence in the potential of Reb-A and the liquidity of the shares will be improved. On the negative tack, there must be some EPS dilution and $25m on a marketing and branding campaign in 2010 looks a large roll of the dice. HOLD pending extra information from the company. Finncap advise to hold. But I cannot begin to understand why. Finncap are dead right about the surprising consumption of cash. And How. Sell as fast as you can. Simon Cawkwell

I agree fegga. When I saw the placing notice I thought current shareholders would be vastly diluted (traditional in most placings of late)but this is not the case with PURE. A good sign IMHO.

interesting listing price at 2.00 - only 7p discount to current price - it seems that those subscribed deem it to reasonable price. i would have thought that is a very positive sign but wdik?
