    Jack in the Buyout Box

    Jack in the Box Inc. needs to partner up while there’s interest. More than 100 North American restaurant chains were sold in 2017, a frenzied pace which continued this year, most recently with Inspire Brands Inc.’s $2.3 billion takeover of Sonic Corp. Inspire Brands, which owns Arby’s, also acquired Buffalo Wild Wings less than a year ago. If it doesn’t lock down a deal, it plans to have a new capital structure in place before the end of March, which may include “a securitization or bond issuance.” Jack in the Box’s net debt amounts to 4 times next year’s projected Ebitda, which is quite high relative to most of its peers.

    Jack in the Box's stock already at 'full valuation' amid reports of potential sale, analyst says

    Wedbush analyst Nick Setyan cautioned Jack in the Box Inc. investors not to get too excited about a Reuters report Thursday that the fast-food burger chain was exploring a sale, given that the stock is "already at a relatively full valuation." The stock shot up 5.9% on Thursday on the report to close at a 3-month high. Setyan said he believes there is an push by activist investors to explore a sales, given the premium Inspire Brands paid to buy drive-in fast-food chain Sonic Corp. , which sent the stock up 19% to a record high on Sept. 25. Setyan said Jack is different than Sonic in several ways, including Sonic had just exited a multi-year capital-expenditure cycle while Jack is just entering one; Jack is "arguably the laggard" in technology investments while Sonic's was ahead of the game and Jack's same-store sales growth continues to decelerate while Sonic's was accelerating into the buyout deal. Setyan reiterated his neutral rating and $85 stock price target, which is 4% below Monday's close. The stock has shed 9.8% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 2.4%.
