    Premier Foods third-quarter sales rise as brands improve

    Premier Foods (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) , owner of Mr Kipling cakes and Oxo stock cubes, reported higher third-quarter sales on Tuesday, helped by further improvement in its brands, sending its shares up more than 3 percent. Jefferies analysts, who were expecting only 2.8 percent growth, pointed to a 3.4 percent gain in the company's core branded grocery business, its second straight quarter of improvement. A weekend newspaper report said Premier Foods was in talks to sell its Batchelors brand to Japan's Nissin Foods, its biggest shareholder with a nearly 20 percent stake.

    Shares in Mr Kipling maker rise as it narrows losses

    Mr Kipling and Bisto maker Premier Foods (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) has narrowed half-year losses as it grapples with the impact of a weak pound pushing up import costs - partly through increasing prices. Its interim results come a day after official figures show a surge in food inflation to 5.7% last month. Premier said this process had taken longer than expected and affected results in the first quarter, but that margins had later returned to "more normal" levels as it concluded.

    Premier Foods (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) , the owner of British food brands including Mr Kipling cakes and Oxo stock cubes, is exploring options as part of a regular review into maximizing shareholder value.

A spokesman for Premier Foods declined to elaborate, but the company's statement was in response to a Wall Street Journal report that said Premier (BSE: 500540.BO - news) had hired Credit Suisse (IOB: 0QP5.IL - news) to review options that could include the sale of one or more brands, a merger with another food group or an outright sale.

    Premier Foods to focus on costs after tough year

    Premier Foods (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) reported lower full-year sales and earnings on Tuesday due to a weaker pound and the rising price of raw materials and said it will focus more on cutting costs and generating cash. The maker of Mr Kipling cakes and Bisto gravy said the change in strategy was to ensure Premier (BSE: 500540.BO - news) can continue to work toward its ultimate goal of reducing its debt in an uncertain economic environment. "You're always much more certain when it comes to things like cash and costs, because they're within your control," Chief (Taiwan OTC: 3345.TWO - news) Executive Gavin Darby told Reuters in an interview.

    UK's Premier drafts shareholder onto board to tackle problems

    Britain's Premier Foods Plc (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) , under pressure from investors after rejecting a takeover bid last year, named a representative of Hong Kong-based Oasis Management to its board on Wednesday in an effort to revive its flagging business. Oasis will raise its stake in Premier (BSE: 500540.BO - news) to 10 percent by June 2018, the maker of Mr Kipling cakes and Bisto gravy said as it announced the appointment of Daniel Wosner, Oasis's managing director and head of Europe, to its board with immediate effect. Premier has failed to deliver the performance it promised when it rejected a 65 pence-per-share takeover approach from U.S. food maker McCormick last April, weakening its shares and angering some of its shareholders.

    Mr Kipling owner Premier Foods in share plunge on profit warning

    Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in Premier Foods (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) have dropped 11% after it warned on profits - reporting weak quarterly sales and price pressures from the slump in sterling. The maker of Mr Kipling cakes and Bisto gravy said it was cutting its full-year trading profit forecast by 10% after third quarter sales came in weaker than expected despite a strong December. It said it was taking longer than expected to agree new supply deals with supermarkets - an issue highlighted by rival Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) 's so-called 'Marmitegate' row with Tesco (Frankfurt: 852647 - news) and others in October.

    Premier Foods cuts profit forecast, shares tumble

    Premier Foods Plc (Frankfurt: A1JWNB - news) , the maker of Mr Kipling cakes and Bisto gravy, cuts its profit forecasts and said it was taking longer than expected to agree supply deals with food retailers, sending its shares down as much as 16 percent. Food manufacturers are battling to agree price increases with British retailers like Tesco (Frankfurt: 852647 - news) and Sainsbury (Amsterdam: SJ6.AS - news) because the fall in the pound since the Brexit vote in June has pushed up the cost of imports like sugar, chocolate and wheat. Premier (BSE: 500540.BO - news) said it was working with its customers to agree changes, including some limited price increases, but the "recovery" of these higher input costs in certain areas was taking longer than expected.
