Panera gekoop deur die eienaar van Krispy Kreme vir byna $ 7,5 miljard

Krispy Kreme se moedermaatskappy, die private -ekwiteitsfirma JAB, het Panera vir byna $ 7,5 miljard gekoop

Panera se aandeelprys het gister gestyg nadat die transaksie aangekondig is.

Na gerugte dat Panera binnekort deur 'n korporasie gekoop sou word, JAB Holding Company -'n Luxemburgse private-ekwiteitsfirma en eienaar van Krispy Kreme, Peet's Coffee, Einstein Bros. Bagels, en Caribou Coffee-het aangekondig dat hy die vinnig-gemaklike handelsmerk vir byna $ 7,5 miljard verkry het. As gevolg van die aankondiging het die aandele van Panera -aandele Woensdag met 13.5 % gestyg.

Ervare verbruikers sal oplet dat Panera hom nou in 'n portefeulje sterk (maar kleiner) ontbythandelsmerke bevind, sodat daar nou gefokus kan word op Panera se bakkery- en ontbytopsies bo die sop-, slaai- en toebroodjie -spyskaart.

"Ons glo dat hierdie transaksie met JAB die beste manier bied om met hierdie benadering voort te gaan. Ons is bly om saam met JAB, 'n private belegger met 'n ewe langtermyn perspektief, sowel as 'n diep verbintenis tot ons strategiese plan," Ron Shaich, stigter en uitvoerende hoof van Panera het Forbes gesê.

Olivier Goudet, uitvoerende hoof van JAB, impliseer in 'n verklaring dat hy en sy span die "ten volle ondersteun" Panera "skoon kos" makeover wat die handelsmerk die afgelope jaar heeltemal opgeknap het en gesê het dat hy 'groot respek' het vir die vinnige restaurant wat sy reputasie van die begin af opgebou het.

Praat oor die laai van koolhidrate. Sandwich -ketting Panera het ingestem om homself vir $ 7,5 miljard aan JAB, 'n Duitse konglomeraat wat Krispy Kreme en die Einstein- en Noah -bagelkettings besit, te verkoop.

Panera se aandele het Woensdag vroeg met 15% gestyg. Die aandeel het Maandag die hoogte ingeskiet toe gerugte ontstaan ​​het dat Panera in samesmeltingsgesprekke was.

JAB is aangewys as 'n moontlike vryer, asook McDonald's, Starbucks, KFC -moedermaatskappy Yum! en Domino's.

In 'n verklaring Woensdag het Panera en JAB gesê dat hulle hoop dat die ooreenkoms in die derde kwartaal van hierdie jaar sal sluit.

Die stigter en uitvoerende hoof van Panera, Ron Shaich, het in 'n verklaring gesê dat verkoop aan JAB Panera sal toelaat om sy beleggings in sy digitale en mobiele besteltegnologie te verhoog, asook die fokus op die gebruik van gesonder bestanddele.

Olivier Goudet, vennoot en uitvoerende hoof van JAB, het bygevoeg dat hy en die res van sy span die toekomsvisie van Panera sterk ondersteun, strategiese inisiatiewe, kultuur van innovasie en 'n gebalanseerde kombinasie van ondernemings en franchise -winkels. ”

Aanhangers van Panera's sop en toebroodjies behoort dus waarskynlik nie 'n groot verandering in die spyskaart as gevolg van die ooreenkoms te verwag nie.

Panera was die afgelope paar jaar 'n ster in die sogenaamde fast casual restaurantbedryf en het sterk verkope en winste gerapporteer.

Vir hierdie doel het die maatskappy ook Woensdag gesê dat die verkope van dieselfde winkels by sy restaurante (hoewel Panera hulle noem#8221 bakkery-kafees ”) in die eerste kwartaal 'n gesonde 5,3% gestyg het teenoor dieselfde tydperk 'n jaar gelede.

Sommige het aangevoer dat Panera, wat nou meer as 2 300 restaurante in die Verenigde State en Kanada het, selfs die titel as leier van die vinnig groeiende vinnige gemaklike segment by Chipotle oorgeneem het.

Die burritoketting het gestruikel weens 'n uitbraak van E. coli in sy restaurante in 2015. Die verkope van Chipotle het nog nie heeltemal herstel nie.

Dit is interessant dat Panera instem om oorgeneem te word, omdat dit goed gaan. Maar die onderneming het 'n vennoot gekies wat vinnig na vore tree as 'n groot speler in die Amerikaanse voedselbedryf.

Benewens Krispy Kreme en die Einstein Noah-bagelkettings, besit JAB ook die K-cup-koffiekoning Keurig Green Mountain, die koffiemerk Gevalia sowel as die koffiekettings Caribou, Peet ’s en Stumptown.

JAB besit ook 'n groot aandeel in 'n groot aantal nie-voedselhandelsmerke, soos die skoene- en handsakmaatskappy Jimmy Choo, die skoonheidsproduktevervaardiger Coty en Reckitt Benckiser, die onderneming agter Lysol. Woolite en die kondoommerk Durex.

Die Panera-JAB-ooreenkoms kan ook meer druk op ander restaurantkettings plaas om ook na groter vennote te soek. As Panera, wat werklik floreer, besluit het om uit te verkoop, hoe kan minder suksesvolle restaurantkettings dit dan alleen doen?

Daar was die afgelope tyd 'n vlaag van restaurant -samesmeltings. Burger King en Tim Hortons se eienaar, Restaurant Brands —, wat deur Warren Buffett — gesteun word, het Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen vroeër vanjaar gekoop.

Bob Evans Farms het sy restaurantbesigheid in Januarie vir $ 565 miljoen aan die private -ekwiteitsfirma Golden Gate Capital verkoop. Golden Gate het Red Lobster in 2014 van die eienaar van Olive Garden, Darden Restaurants, aangeskaf.

En Darden het pas verlede week aangekondig dat hy 'n toevallige eetketting Cheddar ’s Scratch Kitchen koop vir $ 780 miljoen.

Die gewilde toebroodjieketting Jimmy John ’s het verlede September 'n meerderheidsbelang aan beleggingsmaatskappy Roark Capital verkoop.

Bob Evans Farms het sy restaurantbesigheid in Januarie vir $ 565 miljoen aan die private -ekwiteitsfirma Golden Gate Capital verkoop. Golden Gate het Red Lobster in 2014 van die eienaar van Olive Garden, Darden Restaurants, aangeskaf.

En Darden het pas verlede week aangekondig dat hy 'n toevallige eetketting Cheddar ’s Scratch Kitchen koop vir $ 780 miljoen.

Die gewilde toebroodjieketting Jimmy John ’s het verlede September 'n meerderheidsbelang aan beleggingsmaatskappy Roark Capital verkoop.

Praat oor die laai van koolhidrate. Die toebroodjieketting Panera het ingestem om homself te verkoop aan JAB, 'n Duitse konglomeraat wat Krispy Kreme en die Einstein- en Noah -bagelkettings besit, vir $ 7,5 miljard.

Panera se aandele het Woensdag vroeg met 15% gestyg. Die aandeel het Maandag die hoogte ingeskiet toe gerugte ontstaan ​​het dat Panera in samesmeltingsgesprekke was.

JAB is aangewys as 'n moontlike vryer, asook McDonald's, Starbucks, KFC -moedermaatskappy Yum! en Domino's.

In 'n verklaring Woensdag het Panera en JAB gesê dat hulle hoop dat die ooreenkoms in die derde kwartaal van hierdie jaar sal sluit.

Die stigter en uitvoerende hoof van Panera, Ron Shaich, het in 'n verklaring gesê dat verkoop aan JAB Panera sal toelaat om sy beleggings in sy digitale en mobiele besteltegnologie te verhoog, asook die fokus op die gebruik van gesonder bestanddele.

Olivier Goudet, vennoot en uitvoerende hoof van JAB, het bygevoeg dat hy en die res van sy span die toekomsvisie van Panera sterk ondersteun, strategiese inisiatiewe, kultuur van innovasie en 'n gebalanseerde kombinasie van ondernemings en franchise -winkels. ”

Aanhangers van Panera's sop en toebroodjies behoort dus waarskynlik nie 'n groot verandering in die spyskaart as gevolg van die ooreenkoms te verwag nie.

Panera was die afgelope paar jaar 'n ster in die sogenaamde fast casual restaurant-industrie en het sterk verkope en winste gerapporteer.

Vir hierdie doel het die maatskappy ook Woensdag gesê dat die verkope van dieselfde winkels by sy restaurante (hoewel Panera hulle noem#8221 bakkery-kafees ”) in die eerste kwartaal 'n gesonde 5,3% gestyg het teenoor dieselfde tydperk 'n jaar gelede.

Sommige het aangevoer dat Panera, wat nou meer as 2 300 restaurante in die Verenigde State en Kanada het, selfs die titel as leier van die vinnig groeiende vinnige gemaklike segment by Chipotle oorgeneem het.

Die burritoketting het gestruikel weens 'n uitbraak van E. coli in sy restaurante in 2015. Die verkope van Chipotle het nog nie heeltemal herstel nie.

Dit is interessant dat Panera instem om oorgeneem te word, omdat dit goed gaan. Maar die onderneming het 'n vennoot gekies wat vinnig na vore tree as 'n groot speler in die Amerikaanse voedselbedryf.

Benewens Krispy Kreme en die Einstein Noah-bagelkettings, besit JAB ook die K-cup-koffiekoning Keurig Green Mountain, die koffiemerk Gevalia sowel as die koffiekettings Caribou, Peet ’s en Stumptown.

JAB besit ook 'n groot belang in 'n groot aantal nie-voedselhandelsmerke, soos die skoen- en handsakmaatskappy Jimmy Choo, die skoonheidsproduktevervaardiger Coty en Reckitt Benckiser, die onderneming agter Lysol. Woolite en die kondoommerk Durex.

Die Panera-JAB-ooreenkoms kan ook meer druk op ander restaurantkettings plaas om ook na groter vennote te soek. As Panera, wat werklik floreer, besluit het om uit te verkoop, hoe kan minder suksesvolle restaurantkettings dit dan alleen doen?

Talk about carb loading. Sandwich chain Panera has agreed to sell itself to JAB, a German conglomerate that owns Krispy Kreme and the Einstein and Noah bagel chains, for $7.5 billion.

Shares of Panera surged nearly 15% in early trading Wednesday. The stock soared on Monday as rumors surfaced that Panera was in merger talks.

JAB was named as a possible suitor, as were McDonald’s, Starbucks, KFC parent company Yum! and Domino’s.

In a statement Wednesday, Panera and JAB said they hope the deal would close in the third quarter of this year.

Panera founder and CEO Ron Shaich said in a statement that selling to JAB would allow Panera to increase its investments in its digital and mobile ordering technology as well as increase its focus on using healthier ingredients.

JAB partner and CEO Olivier Goudet added that he and the rest of his team “strongly support Panera’s vision for the future, strategic initiatives, culture of innovation, and balanced company versus franchise store mix.”

So fans of Panera’s soup and sandwiches probably shouldn’t expect any major menu changes as a result of the deal.

Panera has been a star of the so-called fast casual restaurant industry over the past few years, reporting strong sales and profits.

To that end, the company also said Wednesday that same-store sales at its restaurants (although Panera calls them ” bakery-cafes”) rose a healthy 5.3% in the first quarter from the same period a year ago.

Some have argued that Panera, which now has more than 2,300 restaurants in the United States and Canada, has even taken over the title as the leader of the rapidly growing fast casual segment from Chipotle.

The burrito chain stumbled due to an outbreak of E. coli at its restaurants in 2015. Chipotle’s sales still haven’t fully recovered.

It is interesting that Panera is agreeing to be taken over since it’s doing well. But the company has picked a partner that is rapidly emerging as a big player in the U.S. food industry.

In addition to Krispy Kreme and the Einstein Noah bagel chains, JAB also owns K-cup coffee king Keurig Green Mountain, the Gevalia brand of coffee as well as coffee chains Caribou, Peet’s and Stumptown.

Shares of Panera surged nearly 15% in early trading Wednesday. The stock soared on Monday as rumors surfaced that Panera was in merger talks.

JAB was named as a possible suitor, as were McDonald’s, Starbucks, KFC parent company Yum! and Domino’s.

In a statement Wednesday, Panera and JAB said they hope the deal would close in the third quarter of this year.

Panera founder and CEO Ron Shaich said in a statement that selling to JAB would allow Panera to increase its investments in its digital and mobile ordering technology as well as increase its focus on using healthier ingredients.

JAB partner and CEO Olivier Goudet added that he and the rest of his team “strongly support Panera’s vision for the future, strategic initiatives, culture of innovation, and balanced company versus franchise store mix.”

So fans of Panera’s soup and sandwiches probably shouldn’t expect any major menu changes as a result of the deal.

Panera has been a star of the so-called fast casual restaurant industry over the past few years, reporting strong sales and profits.

To that end, the company also said Wednesday that same-store sales at its restaurants (although Panera calls them ” bakery-cafes”) rose a healthy 5.3% in the first quarter from the same period a year ago.

Some have argued that Panera, which now has more than 2,300 restaurants in the United States and Canada, has even taken over the title as the leader of the rapidly growing fast casual segment from Chipotle.

The burrito chain stumbled due to an outbreak of E. coli at its restaurants in 2015. Chipotle’s sales still haven’t fully recovered.

It is interesting that Panera is agreeing to be taken over since it’s doing well. But the company has picked a partner that is rapidly emerging as a big player in the U.S. food industry.

In addition to Krispy Kreme and the Einstein Noah bagel chains, JAB also owns K-cup coffee king Keurig Green Mountain, the Gevalia brand of coffee as well as coffee chains Caribou, Peet’s and Stumptown.

JAB also owns a big stake in a fair number of non-food brands, such as shoe and handbag company Jimmy Choo, beauty products maker Coty and Reckitt Benckiser, the company behind Lysol. Woolite and the Durex brand of condoms.

The Panera-JAB deal may also put more pressure on other restaurant chains to look for bigger partners as well. If Panera, which actually has been thriving, decided to sell out, then how can less successful restaurant chains continue to go it alone?

There already has been a flurry of restaurant mergers lately. Burger King and Tim Hortons owner Restaurant Brands — which is backed by Warren Buffett — bought Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen earlier this year.

Bob Evans Farms sold its restaurant business to private equity firm Golden Gate Capital for $565 million in January. Golden Gate acquired Red Lobster from Olive Garden owner Darden Restaurants in 2014.

And Darden just announced last week it was buying casual dining chain Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen for $780 million.

Popular sandwich chain Jimmy John’s sold a majority stake last September to investment company Roark Capital too.
