  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Multiple capacity expansion plans were announced yesterday, some of which we were expecting. The incremental capacity is much greater than we anticipated. In total, we estimate the aforementioned announcements will add ~7.6 pts of capacity over the next 3 calendar years vs. our previous estimate of ~2.6 pts. Nonetheless we continue to expect demand to outpace capacity, albeit to a lesser extent. LW remains our top pick & we would be buyers on any weakness. Multiple capacity expansion plans were announced yesterday, some of which we were expecting. Last night Cavendish Farms (the #4 market share player with 7% share) announced plans to build a new potato processing plant. Cavendish expects the new plant to produce 450M lbs (net capacity addition of ~290M lbs or 2% of industry) by the summer of 2019 (2.5 years from now). In response, McCain also announced plans to expand capacity – McCain’s announcement was markedly vague on timing and location but points to a ~400M lb expansion (3% of industry capacity). Based on our channel checks, there is a lot going on behind the scenes that informs of McCain’s motivation behind yesterday’s announcement. Additionally, we expect JR Simplot to also announce a plant expansion. In total, we estimate the aforementioned announcements will add ~7.6 pts of capacity over the next 3 CYs vs. our previous estimate of ~2.6 pts." (12/14/2016)
