Performance Food Updates IPO Filing

Performance Food Group Company has filed an amended S-1 form with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for its initial public offering (IPO). No terms were given in this filing but the offering is valued up to $100 million in revenue, but this number usually just acts as a placeholder. The company intends to file on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol PFGC.

The underwriters for the offering are Credit Suisse, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley and Barclays.

This is the third largest player by revenue in the growing $240 billion U.S. foodservice distribution industry, which supplies the diverse $640 billion U.S. “food-away-from-home” industry. The company markets and distributes about 150,000 food and food-related products from 68 distribution centers to over 150,000 customer locations across the United States.

Performance Food serves a diverse mix of customers, from independent and chain restaurants to schools, business and industry locations, hospitals, vending distributors, office coffee service distributors, big-box retailers and theaters. It sources its products from over 5,000 suppliers and serves as an important partner to suppliers by providing them access to its broad customer base.

Over 12,000 employees work across its three segments: Performance Foodservice, PFG Customized and Vistar.

In the filing the company described its finances as:

We plan to continue executing the strategies that have successfully delivered net sales, industry share, and profit growth. In the fiscal year ended June 28, 2014, we generated $13.7 billion in net sales and $286.1 million in Adjusted EBITDA, representing compound annual growth rates of 8% and 10%, respectively, since fiscal 2010. In the fiscal year ended June 28, 2014, we generated $15.5 million in net income. During the first nine months of fiscal 2015, we generated $11.3 billion in net sales and $226.1 million in Adjusted EBITDA, representing growth rates of 12% and 17%, respectively, compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2014. During the first nine months of fiscal 2015, we generated $22.3 million in net income. In calendar year 2014 we had an estimated industry share of 6.0% and our sales growth rate since calendar year 2010 is over three times the growth rate of the foodservice distribution industry in that same time frame.

The company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to repay its outstanding indebtedness, with any remaining balance to be used for general corporate purposes. Note that Performance Food will not receive proceeds from the sales of stock offered by selling shareholders.
