  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We assume the business had no EBITDA and POST paid about $100 million with $25 mm of integration costs of TSAs and other, offset to a degree by the NPV of tax savings on the asset step-up. POST said it could generate EBITDA margins similar to its own PL RTE business – we think 15%-18%. Even if we are wrong by a good bit on purchase price, this is a superb value-creation deal if EBITDA could be in the $30-$40 million range – a classic POST deal. $$ in the till. Post Consumer Brands sales fell 0.7%; below our estimate and Street consensus of +2.4%. Volume lagged, down 3.6% driven by declines in branded products and some lift in private label. Adjusted EBITDA was $113 million, down 8.6% from LY and well below our $118 estimate and Street estimates of $122 million. EBITDA margin was 246%, down 220 BP Y/Y." (5/3/2019)
