Premier Foods plc - Analyst/Investor Day

To provide update on the company's Sweet Treats business unit

Premier Foods plc Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Period Ended April 4, 2015; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for Fiscal 2016

Premier Foods plc reported consolidated earnings results for the period ended April 4, 2015. Revenue for the period was £964.3 million, operating loss was £44.1 million, loss before taxation from continuing operations was £135.6 million or 12.7 pence per basic and diluted share and loss for the period attributable to owners of the parent was £123.6 million or 16.9 pence per basic and diluted share compared to revenue of £843.0 million, operating profit of £52.6 million, profit before taxation from continuing operations of £4.4 million or 12.8 pence per basic and diluted share and loss for the period attributable to owners of the parent was £245.9 million or 67.2 pence per basic and diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2013. Revenue in the period benefitted from an additional 94 days while the Company experienced some challenging trading conditions, particularly in the first six months of the period. The main driver of the operating loss in the period is a result of an impairment charge relating to the Sweet Treats business unit. Adjusted earnings per share for continuing operations were 9.0 pence compared to 17.0 pence for the year ended December 31, 2013. Net debt at 4 April 2015 was £584.9 million, which reduced from £830.8 million as at 31 December 2013. This major reduction reflects the equity issue net proceeds of £340.1 million following the completion of the Capital Refinancing Plan in April 2014. Cash generated from operating activities was £3.4 million against £87.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was £34.1 million and purchases of intangible assets was £7.9 million. Adjusted profit before tax was £83.8 million and adjusted profit after tax was £65.9 million. The corporation tax rate for 2015/16 is expected to be 20.0%.
