10:12 EDTBNNYNatural food makers rise following Annies acquisition
Shares of a number of natural food makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Annies (BNNY), announced last night that it agreed to be acquired by General Mills (GIS). In a note to investors today, research firm Oppenheimer wrote that the deal should cause the valuations of two natural food makers, Boulder Brands (BDBD) and WhiteWave (WWAV), to rise in the near-term. WHAT'S NEW: General Mills last night said that it had agreed to buy Annie's for $46 per share in cash, or $820M. Annies' stock closed yesterday at $33.51. General Mills expects the transaction to be accretive to its earnings in the first 12 months following the completion of the deal. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh wrote that the acquisition of Annie's could cause the valuations of stocks in the natural foods sector to rise significantly. The terms of the acquisition of Annies imply a nearly 40x P/E multiple to consensus FY15 forecasts for the company, according to Parikh. The shares of Boulder Brands and WhiteWave should advance in the near-term, added the analyst, who kept Outperform ratings on both names PRICE ACTION: In early trading, WhiteWave rose 3.9% to $37.10, while Boulder Brands jumped 7.6% to $14.25. Another stock in the sector, Hain Celestial (HAIN), advanced 3.5% to $101.17, while Annies surged 37% to $46 and General Mills slipped 0.5% to $53.26.

10:03 EDTLGFLionsgate says Lionsgate UK to assume distribution of Summit films
Lionsgate announced that Lionsgate UK will assume responsibility for the distribution of all Summit label films and will integrate them with the Lionsgate, third-party and locally-produced films it already distributes. The expanded distribution will begin with Summit label films produced after July 2015. The move follows last month's announcement that Lionsgate has moved its international sales headquarters to London. Lionsgate UK's distribution of Summit releases will include Allegiant Part 2, the fourth film in the Divergent franchise, which is slated to begin production in 2016 for worldwide release on March 24, 2017. Distribution of Summit titles in the UK was previously handled by eOne Entertainment. eOne and Lionsgate announced last week that they are extending and expanding their partnership in three territories, with eOne continuing to distribute Lionsgate and Summit films in Canada and Spain and Summit titles in Australia through 2018.
