Cal-Maine Foods Acquire Egg Production Assets of Happy Hen Egg Farms

Follow Us on StockTwits

February 9, 2017: Cal-Maine Foods has reached a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Happy Hen Egg Farms, Inc., relating to their commercial production, processing, distribution and sale of shell eggs business. The assets to be acquired, subject to the completion of this transaction, include commercial egg production and processing facilities with current capacity for approximately 350,000 laying hens and related distribution facilities located near Harwood and Wharton, Texas. The Company expects to close the transaction in the next few weeks.

January 4, 2017: Traders are buying Cal-Maine Foods on a potential recovery in egg prices. Following the 2015 avian influenza (AI)-related laying hen losses, USDA data shows the egg industry has repopulated farms with laying hen numbers beginning to approach pre-AI levels. However, market demand trends have not kept pace with the higher production levels. While retail customer demand has been steady, egg export demand has not fully recovered following the aftermath of the AI outbreak. There was also reduced demand for egg products, as many commercial customers reformulated their products to use fewer eggs when prices spiked, and have been slow to resume previous egg usage. Together, these factors have created an oversupply of eggs, and prices had fallen dramatically from the record high levels last year. Average customer selling prices fell about 50.7 percent year-over-year.

While the egg market has been in oversupply, recent USDA reports show the chick hatch has been down for three consecutive months over prior-year levels as egg production has dropped in response to lower demand. Now we are starting to see egg prices rise sharply.
