08:32 EDTSMGScotts Miracle-Gro signs definitive agremeent to acquire Action Pest Control
Scotts Miracle-Gro announced that its subsidiary EG Systems, doing business as Scotts LawnService, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Action Pest Control. The transaction, which is expected to close by January 2015, would mark the company's first acquisition of a home pest control business. For more than a year, Scotts LawnService has been operating a pest business in Florida using the Company's Ortho brand. The effort has provided a successful proving ground for a business model that offers consumers the benefit of a lawn and pest service from the same provider. Scotts LawnService anticipated sales of approximately $260M in fiscal 2014. Given the fragmented nature of the $7B home pest control category, the Company believes it can complement organic growth in lawn service by consistently expanding its pest control platform. Action Pest provides a comprehensive range of residential and commercial pest control services to homeowners and businesses throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. The company expects the Action Pest business to add annual sales approaching $15M and for the transaction to be earnings accretive in fiscal 2015.

BMO Capital views yesterday's decline in Sanderson Farms (SAFM), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) and Tyson Foods (TSN) as an overreaction to Sanderson's comments regarding breast prices falling to year-ago levels for the next four months. BMO notes that breast prices always dip in the fall. Following Sanderson's investor day, BMO said it sees a greater probability of chicken margins remaining at near-record levels in 2015. It keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
