06:28 EDTHSH, PF, PPCPilgrim's Pride confirms revised proposal to acquire Hillshire at $55 per share
Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) confirmed that on June 1, it submitted a revised proposal to acquire Hillshire Brands (HSH) for $55.00 per share in cash in a transaction valued at $7.7B. The proposal represents an increase of $1.3B versus Pilgrim's initial proposal, and a 49% premium over Hillshire's share price one day prior to the announcement of its transaction with Pinnacle Foods (PF). Pilgrim's revised proposal is not subject to any financing conditions or contingencies. Pilgrim says it is confident the transaction is strategically and financially compelling, and creates considerable value for the shareholders of both Pilgrim's and Hillshire. Pilgrim's anticipates run-rate cost synergies in excess of $300M annually to come from operational and value-chain efficiencies. Pilgrim's expects the increased cash flow from the combined company and the realization of synergies will allow it to rapidly pay down the initial acquisition debt. Pilgrim's projects the combination to be immediately accretive to earnings due to these significant synergies and the availability of attractive financing terms.
