  • Expands Geographic Reach and Overall Scale: The addition of Reinhart’s distribution footprint in key geographies enhances PFG’s existing distribution platform and market density.
  • Complementary Customer-Centric Operating Models: Consistent go-to-market approaches and selling cultures are focused on customer success.
  • Enhances Attractive Customer Base and Product Offerings: Reinhart has a diverse customer base which includes independent restaurants, healthcare, education and other segments. The combined portfolio of proprietary brands broadens PFG’s offering.
  • Significant Synergy Opportunities: PFG continues to expect to achieve approximately $50 million in annual run-rate cost synergies in the third full fiscal year following the close of the transaction. Cost synergies have been identified primarily in procurement, operations, and logistics. PFG estimates one-time capital expenditures of $90 million in IT upgrades and integration over the next five years. Reinhart’s ongoing maintenance capital expenditures are approximately $50 million which is in line with PFG’s capital expenditures to net sales ratio.
  • Compelling Financial Impact: On a percentage basis, excluding transaction-related depreciation and amortization, PFG expects the transaction to be low single-digit accretive to Adjusted Diluted EPS in the first full fiscal year following the close and low double-digit accretive to Adjusted Diluted EPS in the third full fiscal year following the close. PFG is targeting a net debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio of less than 4.0x within 18 months following closing of the transaction.
