13:15 EDTSBUX, TEATeavana refutes short seller allegations, says teas safe
Teavana Holdings (TEA) issued the following statement in response to allegations made by certain short sellers: "Teavana’s teas undergo rigorous third-party testing on each batch of teas based on international food safety standards including European Union regulations, which are widely considered to be the most stringent in the world. Consistent with that, the Company has established internal procedures and comprehensive third party testing to ensure all tea is safe and within those guidelines. Teavana refutes the report’s conclusions. The group that published the report is a short-seller and may benefit financially from the allegations in the report. Teavana’s teas are safe and of the highest quality." The Fly notes that Glaucus Research claimed in a note to investors earlier today that independent laboratory tests indicated Teavana's teas contain pesticides. Glaucus also alleged that Starbucks' (SBUX) agreement to purchase Teavana was threatened by the findings.

NEWS: At the company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders in March, the company announced a two-for-one stock split. On a split-adjusted basis, the company revised its Q2 EPS view to 32c-33c to account for the planned stock split; previous Q2 EPS guidance was 64c-65c. The company also revised its EPS guidance for fiscal year 2015 to $1.55-$1.57, which compares to analysts' estimates of $1.57; the company's pre-split FY15 EPS view was $3.09-$3.13. At the meeting, Starbucks announced two delivery models, including a collaboration with Postmates, which will allow customers to order their food and beverage items via the Starbucks mobile app, and a "Green Apron" barista delivery option enabling customers within specified office-buildings to order food and beverages for delivery. Starbucks also reaffirmed its goal to grow its market capitalization to $100B and announced an agreement with Chinese food and beverage producer Tingyi Holding to manufacture and expand the distribution of Starbucks ready-to-drink products throughout mainland China. During the quarter, Evolution Fresh, a unit of Starbucks, and Dannon (DANOY) said they would launch co-branded yogurt products.
