Continental Grain Urges Smithfield To Sell Underperforming Assets

Continental Grain Company, shareholder of Smithfield Foods, Inc. (NYSE:SFD), is requesting the company to sell underperforming assets. Continental Grain holds 6% stake in Smithfield. Continental Grain said it is seeking to justify a business as usual approach despite destroying shareholder value. ContiGroup's proposals include splitting Smithfield into three independent companies by divesting 51% of hog production and select European assets, it also also suggests Smithfield continue to own its Campofrio stake and Mexican assets and institute an annual dividend. However, C. Larry Pope, Chief Executive Officer of Smithfield, said, "We believe that Continental Grain's analysis of the benefits of a divestiture of our hog production business and select European assets, which they have made before, is inherently flawed, based on an intensive and ongoing review of these and other alternatives by the board, management and our financial and legal advisors."

Smithfield's Tar Heel pork plant stays closed after ammonia leak
[Reuters] - Smithfield Foods Inc.'s Tar Heel, North Carolina pork packing plant, the world's largest, remained closed on Wednesday after a water tank collapsed and caused an ammonia leak a day earlier, the company said. "It is a matter of getting power restored, a big part of the problem is that the water tank that ruptured actually knocked out our transformers," said Dennis Pittman, a company spokesman. It is likely the Tar Heel plant, which has a daily slaughter capacity of about 34,000 hogs, could resume operations by the second shift on Thursday, he said. Smithfield Foods, Inc., the world's largest pork producer and processor, is a wholly independent subsidiary of China's WH Group.
