Active Nutrition sales surged 14.7% to $216.4 mm (PVTL $217mm/ Street $214 mm). EBITDA was fantastic at $46.7 mm, up 36.2% (PVTL $39.1mm/Street $39.6 mm). Shake product sales grew 34%; bar products and powder declined slightly. Private Brands sales rose 8.7% to $209.1 mm (PVTL $211.5mm/Street $204.1mm). EBITDA fell 1.6% to 24.7mm (PVTL $25.4mm/Street $25.7mm). Volume grew 0.8%. This business had negative mix and some cost-side pressures. VALUATION: We are raising our price target to $120 from $105 or about 11.5x pro- forma EVEBITDA (for the receipt of $875 million of cash, $500 mm of FY19 FCF and subtraction of $104 mm of EBITDA). EV/EBITDA POST remains crazy cheap relative to peers with growth that is far better than its peers." (8/3/2018)
