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).
