PureCircle is the world's leading producer of high purity stevia ingredients for the global food and beverage industry.
The latest of many key events in developing this market was the introduction of their high purity stevia to Coca Cola's Sprite and Pepsi's Pepsi Next brands, replacing 30% of the sugar content in each - the first time it has been used in mainstream carbonated soft drinks international brands
$20bn is seen as an addressable market. The actual total market in which PureCircle's high purity stevia aims to find its place is worth 3x that sum. High purity stevia joins sugar and HFCS as the only natural mass volume sweeteners, but the only such natural sweetener to be able to moderate calorie consumption.
Capacity expansion should be fundable from cash flow, yet consensus forecasts suggest a prospective p/e ratio of 16x in 2016. Not bad, when considered against the background of a new explosive growth market in which PureCircle is the dominant player.

Foreign buyers gorging on UK stocks

Document can be downloaded here: UK plc ‘going for a song’

Being a shareholder in a company that receives a juicy takeover offer is a marvellous feeling. Something that many fortunate investors have experienced over the past 3 years. Thanks to a spate of M&A bids by deep pocketed overseas buyers – partly triggered by the June 2016 Brexit result, which sent the £ tumbling and adversely affected the FTSE.

Consequently today, given this trend is unlikely to end anytime soon, we’ve highlighted 30 possible acquisition ideas in the attached research paper. Spilt equally between large and smallcap stocks – covering a broad selection of industries.

What’s more we believe most of these businesses are underpinned by strong fundamentals and substantial upside in the event of predatory interest.

According to Factset Mergerstat/BVR, the average bid premium paid for such deals between 2004-14 was 30% – with the figure trending upwards since the global financial crisis.

Happy investing. Published 27th August 2019
