Post management continues to expect fiscal 2014 adjusted EBITDA to be between $300 million and $320 million. For the second half of fiscal 2014, Post management expects modest net deflation in commodities and lower levels of promotional activity resulting in improved gross margins when compared to the first half of fiscal 2014. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2014, inclusive of all completed acquisitions to date (which excludes the pending acquisitions of the PowerBar and Musashi brands and of Michael Foods), are expected to be between $90 million and $100 million, an increase from the prior estimate of between $75 million and $85 million. Post management currently expects pro forma adjusted EBITDA for the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2014, calculated as if all acquisitions completed to date were owned for the entire period, will be between $320 million and $340 million.
Post management currently estimates that its effective tax rate will stabilize and will be approximately 32%-35% in fiscal year 2015.
