Potbelly CEO says company explored a sale, Restaurant News reports

Potbelly CEO Alan Johnson said the struggling brand explored a potential sale during a strategic review of operations but ultimately decided to scrap the idea, Restaurant News reports, citing Johnson's comments on a conference call. "After a thorough and wide-ranging sales process, ultimately this effort did not result in a transaction that the Potbelly board determined to be viable or in the best interest of the company and our shareholders," he said.

Potbelly, Del Taco may see largest EPS tailwind from tax reform, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo argues that Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO), El Pollo Loco (LOCO) and Jack in the Box (JACK) could see the largest EPS accretion tailwind from a reduced corporate tax rate, with Restaurant Brands (QSR), Red Robin (RRGB), Noodles & Company (NDLS) and Yum! Brands (YUM) the companies that could see the smallest tailwind. Recent restaurant rally indicates that virtually the entire sector has benefited from anticipation of potential tax reform, with the most heavily shorted names seeing an amplified move, the firm adds.

Potbelly naming new CEO removes some uncertainty, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Stephen Anderson nudged his price target on Potbelly to $13 from $12, saying the company's naming of Alan Johnson as new CEO removes some management uncertainty as it continues to undergo a strategic review. Anderson keeps his Hold rating, noting that any potential upside from the review is likely to be offset by a still-uncertain fundamental outlook. The analyst believes that the most likely outcome of the review is a more aggressive refranchising program, with the proceeds to be used to buy back shares.
