10:29 EDTTSNTyson advances after profit beats expectations
Shares of meat producer Tyson Foods (TSN) are climbing after the company reported higher than expected profits and roughly in-line revenue. The company also made optimistic comments about the outlook for its meat products. WHAT'S NEW: Tyson reported fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding some items, of 87c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 76c. The company's Q4 revenue of $10.11B was roughly in-line with expectations. Tyson provided fiscal 2015 EPS guidance of $3.30-$3.40, versus the consensus outlook of $3.33. However, the meat producer's fiscal 2015 revenue guidance came in at $42B, compared with the consensus outlook of $42.51B. Tyson expects its chicken segment to generate a 7%-9% return on sales over the long-term, but a return on sales of more than 10% in fiscal 2015. Hillshire Brands, which was acquired by Tyson earlier this year, should generate revenue synergies of $4B in fiscal 2015, added Tyson. Meanwhile, demand for beef is "very strong," and pork margins should be good in 2015, the meat producer stated. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Tyson gained 4% to $42.34. Other meat producers also advanced, with Sanderson Farms (SAFM) rising 0.5% to $84.17 and Hormel Foods (HRL) gaining 0.6% to $54.84.

07:35 EDTTSNTyson Foods sees Hillshire acquisition adding $4B in revenues in FY15
The company says "We expect to realize substantial synergies from combining our Prepared Foods business with Hillshire Brands. Synergies are expected to come primarily from operational improvements, purchasing and distribution. As we execute our Prepared Foods strategy, we estimate the impact of the Hillshire Brands synergies, along with the cost savings and the production efficiencies associated with the previously announced plant closures, will positively impact our Prepared Foods segment by more than $225 million in fiscal 2015, and more than $500 million by the third full year of ownership. As we continue to integrate these businesses and deliver the first year synergies, the near-term results for fiscal 2015 are expected to be above the top end of our prior range of 6% despite a projected increase in raw material costs. However, as a result of the improvements we have made in our Prepared Foods business, our acquisition of Hillshire Brands and the significant synergies we expect to realize over the next few years, we believe the long-term profitability of this business should be between 10-12%."
