It’s like yesterday, said one analyst, a bitter pill for shareholders to swallow. Aryzta was in intensive care for several months. And yesterday, CEO Kevin Toland said that the medicine is working, it seems that the revival of the group remains elusive.

Meanwhile, the erosion of shareholder value was excruciating. Anyone who is clinging to this long, hoping to see their investment recover now faced with the prospect of pumping fresh money into Aryzta, or seeing their shares in the Charter capital of thumping.

One analyst an expression of disbelief on the background of reducing Aryzta.

“Previously, it was €600 million EBITDA business and now it is 300 million euros, the EBITDA of the business,” the analyst said CEO Kevin Toland. “I would like to have Your opinion if it’s just a normal operational problems that you faced or whether, in hindsight, I mean, it never really had €600m of business?”

Mr. Toland said Aryzta as “beautiful”, but not to be caught up in the past.

Now Aryzta must go forward with his plan borrowed funds, which includes the project “renew”.

That includes initiatives to generate annual cost savings of €90 million by 2021. But the program will also cost Aryzta €150 million over the next three years.

In addition, he is faced with the prospect of rising costs for raw materials, and wheat prices are rising in Europe after the summer heat.
