    FTNT a takeover target now more than ever

    No question about it. This will only get pricier as time goes by.

  • Smart Balance, an innovator in great tasting, heart healthier spreads, announced in March the planned transition of its entire product line to non-GMO – the first leading national spread to go non-GMO. This week, Smart Balance is shipping millions of tubs of the new non-GMO buttery spreads to national and regional grocery stores across the country. Distribution will continue ramping up in May, with a complete transition this summer.

    Smart Balance, owned by Colorado-based Boulder Brands, revamped its ingredients sourcing and manufacturing processes in response to growing consumer demand for non-GMO products. The new Smart Balance delivers the same delicious, buttery taste and nutritional benefits with no increase in price to customers.

    "We are delivering on our promise to make non-GMO Smart Balance widely available, and importantly, without raising the cost to retailers who sell our product," said Duane Primozich, executive vice president of Smart Balance and Balance Brands. "We wholeheartedly agree with consumers and advocates who support greater transparency in food ingredients, and who want healthier, less processed foods with simpler ingredients."

    H&N is what will save Z and bring it to the promised land with Brazil taking the silver medal. Their SRB sales have really disappointed compared to what has been promised over a decade. If they never over promised we wouldn't be here lamenting it. However, H&N is super high margin, Brazil and all the lessons learned there can be repeated in the US. I for one believe Short and they will build at least one RBO plant stateside.

  • If they will not need to hire going into 2015 or increase any other operating expenses and we have an anticipated run rate of 20M (just a guess but not entirely out of the question) with margins of 30% (low estimate) then you are at $3.7 million. Applying the NOL to it you are looking at .60 cents a share just from this.

    Calling Dr. Howard Dr. Fine Dr. your head is fine. Don't adjust the color on your TV set. This is EARLY to get into this stock. Z has only just begin to live and breath again. The H&N acquisition is a home run.

    Short is proving incrementally that he can deliver on his words. To wit:

    We hope to relist to Nasdaq
    We plan to acquire H&N by year end
    At some future time we will provide guidance
    We hope to restructure the balance sheet with a new stock offering and eliminate debt
    R&D done with Proryza. Never thought that would happen but it did and it appears there is strong interest
    Reach out to sell side analysts and institutions
    Communicate more - PRs on new hires, presentations etc

    Short said he'd reach out to sell side analyst and institutions. Well done.

    Increase production capacity of our Stage II products. Production of certain Stage II products at our Dillon, Montana facility is projected to grow by over 400% based on volume over current production levels by 2016. The Dillon plant can accommodate the growth in production through early 2015 but will require additional production capacity during 2015. As part of our growth strategy, we plan to use part of the proceeds from this offering to double production capacity at our Dillon plant. Expansion efforts are projected to begin in July 2014 with completion by the end of 2014

    Interesting stat that new customers from meat application and cereal inclusion will be about 4% of the increase from 35m to the 50m. That's about a million bucks moving more towards the end of the year. I would expect that number to be bigger, but it is encouraging. H&N is very high margin and it basically fell into Zs lap because they weren't looking for it. Tells how much they know the industry/business...reminds me of...."you put chocolate in my peanut put peanut butter in my chocolate".....whatever. As long as we are now in business and humming along....all good.

    Over last two years Brazil did around $25 million average or thereabouts. 50% increase from there is $37 million.

    Only 2 million 1st quarter...maybe 4 to 5 million 4th quarter
