Conclusion

Based on the year ended November 2013 the P/E is  6.7, but it's a stable farmland business where growth can only come from acquisitions.

The rating is neutral.

Business

TAG was formed in January 2014 to leverage the well-established Taggares family name and farming expertise to acquire, re-develop and operate profitable farmland in the Pacific Northwest (the region encompassing Washington, Oregon and Idaho).

Existing Operations 

TAG was founded in January 2014 and currently has no revenue-generating business operations.

However, TAG has already taken numerous steps to position Taggares Agriculture Corp. for future growth, including negotiating the contractual right to acquire the real property, certain personal property, business operations, water and other rights related to the real property (the “Business and Assets”) of Snake River Vineyards (“SRV”), an apple and grape farm located on the Snake River in Burbank, Wash. that encompasses a total of approximately 3,200 acres.

In addition, TAG has entered into new strategic partnerships, including a five-year contract with Tree Top, Inc. with market-rate pricing terms; negotiated a non-binding letter of intent to enter into a three-year packing agreement with Valicoff that includes a per-bin handling rebate and otherwise market-rate pricing terms; developed detailed farm acquisition and re-development strategies as described in the SEC filing; and established a high-quality management team and board of directors with significant experience and expertise in real estate, investing and agriculture.

TAG’s primary focus is on acquiring farmland with the necessary characteristics to grow differentiated permanent crops that are profitable to its business such as tree fruit (e.g. apples), stone fruit (e.g. cherries, nectarines and pears) and grapes (e.g. concord and wine grapes).

These characteristics include an established permanent crop, secure water rights, re-development potential, large contiguous area, existing operations, and consistent yields.

In addition, capitalizing on the extensive experience of its management, consultants and advisors, TAG intends to use value-enhancing farming techniques to increase the yield of its crops, such as advanced pruning and thinning techniques, frost prevention such as ponds and wind machines, and other infrastructure improvements.

Further, TAG plans to establish partnerships to improve its economies of scale, such as those with Valicoff, the apple packing shed that will pack, store, distribute, market and sell its apples.

Acquisition strategy

TAG’s acquisition strategy will commence immediately after this offering, but will continue over the next two to five years and, will require it to obtain additional financing, accurately identify attractive property, compete effectively with other potential buyers of farmland and successfully integrate and operate these new properties.

Although TAG anticipates launching its re-development strategy upon completion of its acquisition of the Business and Assets of SRV, TAG will not realize certain benefits of these efforts for up to two to five years, if at all, and such improvements may require TAG to incur debt in the future.

Dividend Policy

No dividends are planned.

Competition

Competition in the grape and apple industries in Washington and internationally is intense.

SRV faces direct competition by other grape and apple companies, including small family-owned businesses, as well as subsidiaries or other affiliates of large companies, some of which have substantially greater resources than TAG does.

SRV’s principal competitors in the Pacific Northwest concord grape industry are The J.M. Smucker Company (SJM) and affiliated entities and Milne Fruit Products, Inc. and affiliated entities.

The Washington apple industry is comprised of hundreds of small, independently and family-owned farms, none of which have significant market share to constitute any particular competitive advantage.

T3 Ag Investments, LLC            54.2%
