 Article Donini mentioned with Red Baron, DiGiorno

RedBarons, Tony's, DiGiorno, Tombstone & Donini's frozen pizza????

The frozen pizza category continued its sales growth by posting increases in both unit and dollar sales for the 52-week period ended April 17. IRI statistics, which measure scanner data in supermarkets, drugstores and mass merchandisers excluding Wal-Mart, report frozen pizza dollar sales increased 2.3% to $2.62 billion and unit sales rose 1.2% to 996 million for that period. Driving this growth is innovation that constantly changes the look of the frozen pizza case. For example, three years ago the frozen case was full of self-rising crusts that promised a restaurant-style eating experience. Today, these thick crusts are joined in the frozen case by thin crust pizzas. "There is a growing consumer demand for thin crust pizzas, and frozen thin crust is underdeveloped compared to restaurant pizza," Darci Eckermann, The Schwan Food Co.'s director of marketing services, says. The company launched Red Baron® Thin Crust Pizza to capitalize on this market deficiency. This pizza is available in six different varieties: Ultimate Pepperoni; Five Cheese; Italian Sausage & Pepperoni; Meat Trio; Mozzarella, Tomato & Basil; and Supreme. Kraft Foods Inc., Northfield, Ill., also launched a line of thin crust pizzas under the DiGiorno brand name in the following flavors: four meat; pepperoni; supreme; and grilled chicken, tomato and spinach. Thin crust pizzas represent only one change to the frozen pizza aisle in the last year. Other new products that stress convenience and quality have flooded the marketplace. Convenience remains a driving factor in the frozen pizza category, as evidenced by the growth of single-serve traditional and French bread pizzas.

"Convenience continues to play a large role in today's pizza market Eckermann says. "Families continue to lead busy lives and they want great tasting, convenient food that fits their lifestyles."

The Schwan Food Co. produces many convenient products, including Red Baron® French Bread pizzas and Tony's Pizza For One, which is a microwaveable snack-size pizza. Microwaveable pizzas are a booming segment in the frozen pizza category, and many bakeries are spending time and money to improve the quality of these products. Kraft Foods' DiGiorno brand launched a frozen pizza that rises and bakes in the microwave. This innovative offering reduces the popular brand's bake time to five minutes and is available in eight varieties. The company expects its microwaveable pizzas to record more than $75 million in 2005 revenue. Canadian pizza manufacturer Donini Inc. also is looking into microwaveable pizzas, and recently began test marketing a microwaveable product. According to Peter Deros, Donini's president and chief executive officer, customer satisfaction for the microwaveable pizza is very high. The company plans to commercially launch the product this summer. Pizza manufacturers' constant innovation has led to positive sales for the category. And, the introduction of new products continues to renew interest in this category. •

 DNNC -- Donini, Inc. Founded in 1987

Pizza Donini Overtakes Montreal!!
    Donini, Inc. (OTC: DNNC), announced today that the Company has outlined an aggressive five-year expansion plan aimed at maximizing revenues and profits.

The plan includes the development of approximately 50 new food outlets in addition to the 10 existing outlets over a five year period. Mr. Deros, President and CEO, emphasized that this expansion plan is realistic in large part due to the Company's restructuring of its debt and the closing of all unprofitable units.The initial core growth will be focused on the greater Montreal area as well as several master franchise relationships in the U.S. Each new establishment will include the fresh and modern Pizza Donini look that has been designed to meet present and future customer tastes, while maximizing efficiency and profits for both the franchise owner-operators and the company."We have also performed a thorough review of our most popular and profitable menu items, which makes me especially excited about the plan and the company's future," says Deros. "I am confident that with Donini's excellent line of pizza products and its new look, Pizza Donini will be favored by consumers in the marketplace over competitors, large and small." The Pizza Donini line of products is known for its distinctive, slightly spicy Italian pizzeria quality and is prepared with the freshest possible ingredients.  From the beginning, the concept was based on the right combination of traditional and new ideas.  Pizza Donini restaurants feature a warm, friendly atmosphere in a casual setting with outstanding customer service.  All franchisees are supplied with Pizza Donini's proprietary recipes of dough and sauces, thereby ensuring superior and consistent quality and eliminating time-consuming preparation procedures and waste at the retail level. All delivery orders are processed through a central delivery number and all manufacturing and call center activities are outsourced.  In addition to the proprietary recipes for sauces and dough, the franchisees are supplied with the balance of the products called for in the menus, from designated suppliers, thereby ensuring consistency throughout the franchise chain


   DNNC -- Donini, Inc.
The Play
DNNI is a turnaround story. The company is in the pizza franchise business and has been silent for many months now. They recently started a PR campaign to unveil its new agressive growth plan. The company is currently looking into a merger/acquisition with an established fast food chain. The company also intends to open 30 franchise restaurant in Montreal,Toronto and the US. They expect to reach revenue of 15 million for 2008. We think the company will continue with its PR campaign and expansion plan. They already struck an agreement to acquire a Newark restaurant. We have been told the company has private placment and does not intend to dilute anytime soon.


Business Description

Founded in 1987, by Mr. Peter Deros, Pizza Donini Inc. currently supports 29 franchise and corporate outlets, each offering on-site and/or home delivery service. The Pizza Donini line of pizzas is known for its distinctive, slightly spicy Italian pizzeria quality. The warm and friendly restaurants promote the highest in customer service management.

-Peter Deros - President, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Treasurer. Mr. Deros has been in the quick-service restaurant industry for 35 years, founded PDI in 1987 and has served as its President and Chief Executive Officer since inception. Prior to founding PDI, Mr. Deros was President and Chief Operating Officer of a highly successful public pizza chain. Under his leadership sales for this chain grew from $5 million to more than $50 million. Prior to this position, Mr. Deros was an executive with a multi-unit franchisee of A&W Food Services of Canada. Mr. Deros has been a Director of the Company since February 23, 2001Wild Valuation

From their previous PRs:

The company expects 15 million dollar in sales for 2008 and expects to open up to 30 stores in the next 5 years. Say the company achieves half of that number it gives us 7 million in sales..At 1x sales DNNI should trade around 23 cents on 2008 projected sales number.

If we include the acquisition potential. CEO stated:"All of these acquisition targets have proven business models and are leaders in the fast food marketplace with large top line revenue numbers.". If that fast food chain has a conservative 10 million dollar in sales. It should add another 10-20 cents to the PPS..

When I spoke to the CEO he mentionned that they will be funded through private placement and will look into a non-dilutive acquisition. My take is that the O/S will probaby stay around 30 mil.. Adding all this up should give us PPS of 50 cents++ IMO. I think the acquisition should give us 20-30 cents ++ alone.
