Morningstar | ABF Issues Pre-Close Update With Primark Growth Lower Than Expected; Thesis Intact

Associated British Foods has reported its pre-close period trading update for fiscal 2018. Although Primark's sales growth and sugar operating profit were both lower than expected, management reiterated full-year guidance on the back of higher margins achieved in retail. We maintain our no-moat rating and do not anticipate a material change to our fair value estimate of GBX 2,660, as lower like-for-like, or LFL, sales growth in Primark was counterbalanced by higher operating margins in the segment, driven by a weaker U.S. dollar exchange rate and better buying. More specifically, in Primark, ...

Morningstar | Strong Execution and a Niche Business Model Drive ABF’s Prospects; Shares Fairly Valued

After reassessing our assumptions for Associated British Foods, we are lifting our fair value estimate to GBX 2,660 from GBX 2,600. Our estimate implies fiscal 2018 adjusted P/E of 20 times and enterprise value/adjusted EBITDA of 10 times. We reaffirm our no-moat rating, as we believe that opportunities to support sustainable competitive differentiation in the company's fast-fashion and grocery units are limited. We see the shares as fairly valued, properly accounting for Primark’s strong value-accretive growth prospects, its competitively positioned sugar assets, and its stable but growing gr...

Etude de l'AG du 08/12/2017

Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report. The disclosure of the remuneration package is poor and alignment with performance has not been definitively demonstrated, as no bonus targets are disclosed.  The structure is not weighted more heavily towards short-term performance; the STI and LTI are equally weighted though 25% of the bonus is deferred.  Finally, awarded amounts are high in relation to index and sector comparisons. Item 4: Re-elect as a director, Emma Adamo. The director is affiliated due to a material business relationship with a significant shareholder.  In particular, she serves as...
