Premier Foods plc (‘Premier’ or the ‘Company’)

Annual Report and Accounts, notice of AGM and Share Consolidation

Premier Foods, home to some of Britain’s best loved brands, today announces that the Company’s 2012 Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) will be held at 10.00 am on Thursday, 3 May 2012 at the Holiday Inn – Bloomsbury, Coram Street, London, WC1N 1HT.

The Company also announces today the publication of its Annual Report and Accounts 2011. This follows the announcement on 19 March 2012 of Premier’s results for the year ended 31 December 2011. 

Copies of the Annual Report and Accounts 2011 and Notice of AGM are available to view or download from the Company’s website,, and have been submitted to the UK Listing Authority's National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at

The resolutions to be proposed at the Company’s AGM include a share consolidation pursuant to which 10 existing ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company (the ‘Existing Ordinary Shares’) then in issue would be consolidated into a single ordinary share of 10 pence each (the ‘New Ordinary Shares’). 

If agreed, the proposed consolidation is expected to reduce the volatility of the Company’s share price as well as reducing its administrative costs.

As of today, the Company has an issued ordinary share capital of £23,980,582 divided into 2,398,058,228 Existing Ordinary Shares. Following the proposed consolidation, and assuming no further issues of Existing Ordinary Shares, the issued ordinary share capital would remain unchanged but would comprise 239,805,823 New Ordinary Shares.

Further details on the proposed consolidation can be found in the Notice of AGM.
