07:31 EDTTSN, HSHHillshire Brands reports Q4 adjusted EPS 33c, consensus 26c
Reports Q4 revenue $1.1B, consensus $994.1M. As previously announced, on July 1, Hillshire Brands entered into a definitive agreement with Tyson Foods (TSN) under which Tyson will acquire all outstanding shares of Hillshire Brands for $63 per share. On August 12, 2014, each of Tyson and Hillshire Brands received a request for additional information, each often referred to as a “second request,” from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in connection with the proposed acquisition. Each second request was issued pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. The second requests relate only to a very small portion of the combined Tyson/Hillshire Brands business, and the parties are working expeditiously to resolve this matter with the Antitrust Division. Tyson and Hillshire Brands continue to expect that the transaction, which remains subject to customary closing conditions, will be completed by September 27.

In its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report, the USDA increased its forecasts for total meat production in 2015 and 2016. Beef production for 2015 is raised on larger forecast slaughter of fed cattle in the second half of 2015 and heavier carcass weights. The forecast for 2016 is raised as cattle slaughter and carcass weights in the first half are projected higher than last month. The pork production forecasts for both 2015 and 2016 are raised. The pace of hog slaughter in the remainder of 2015 is expected to be higher, the USDA said. Publicly traded companies in the meat production space include Hormel Foods (HRL), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), Sanderson Farms (SAFM) and Tyson Foods (TSN).
