Guru Investment Theses on International Flavors & Fragrances Inc

Mario Gabelli Comments on International Flavors & Fragrances - Feb 05, 2016

International Flavors & Fragrances (1.3%) (IFF – $119.64 – NYSE) (NYSE:IFF), based in New York, is a leading global supplier of flavor and fragrances and ingredients used in food, beverage, and personal and household care products. It is the third largest manufacturer in the estimated $18 billion global industry, generating revenue and EBITDA of approximately $3 billion and $705 million, respectively. IFF should continue to benefit from the growth of packaged food and personal/household care products in emerging markets, which represent 50% of its revenue, as well as from new product innovation in developed markets. Over the next five years, we expect IFF to generate high single-digit earnings growth (assumes share repurchases). Acquisitions may further enhance this growth rate as the company looks to supplement its technology, geographic reach and/or expand into relevant adjacencies. IFF recently completed the acquisitions of Ottens Flavors, expanding its flavors business in the U.S., and Lucas Meyer Cosmetics, entering the active and functional cosmetic ingredients market.
