Central Garden & Pet intends to transform itself into an integrated, multi-brand company. Going forward, the company's primary focus is to contain costs, improve operating efficiencies and augment revenue growth potentiality. Gross margin expanded 300 basis points to 33.8%, whereas operating margin increased 160 basis points to 9.2% during the quarter.
The stock is trading at a premium to the industry average based on our forward fiscal 2012 earnings estimate, but at a discount based on forward fiscal 2013. Our target price of $11.00, 19.0X 2012 EPS, reflects this our recommendation upgrade from Neutral to Outperform.
