Univar reports Q4 adj. EPS 33c, consensus 32c

Reports Q4 revenue $1.97B, consensus $1.99B. "We continued to improve on our global execution in the fourth quarter despite challenges in Canada and softer than forecasted demand from most industrial end markets," said David Jukes, president and CEO. "In particular, improved sales force and operational execution in our USA segment drove Adjusted EBITDA growth in a quarter when customer demand and purchasing behavior was dampened by macroeconomic uncertainty. We remain focused on our strategic growth priorities," Jukes continued, "Including our ongoing USA transformation and progress toward the close of our Nexeo acquisition, which we expect will significantly enhance and accelerate our ability to grow and drive shareholder value. We are confident our strategy is working and is positioning Univar for long-term, sustainable growth."

Jefferies lays out case for Univar shares doubling by end of 2020
Jefferies analyst Laurence Alexander estimates the combined Univar (UNVR) and Nexeo Solutions (NXEO) could achieve $2.70 of earnings per share by 2021 even in a "choppy" environment, with $5.65 per share of cumulative free cash flow over the next two years. A double in the share price by the end of 2020 to $44 per share would hinge on a Plastics divestiture, free cash flow and proceeds deployed to less than three-times net debt to EBITDA, and a stronger conversion ratio, lifting the multiple to 8.5 times EBITDA, 16.1 times earnings and a 6.5% free cash flow yield, Alexander tells investors in a research note. With the deal scheduled to close in the first half of 2019, the analyst does not expect a detailed update on synergies until early 2020. However, he sees "significant" potential upside to estimates and keeps a Buy rating on Univar. The analyst lowered his price target for the stock to $28 from $33.
