WH Group General Information


WH Group is a holding company and the world's largest vertically integrated producer of pork and related packaged meat products. Its revenue is mainly derived from activities undertaken by its China and US operations, which are respectively via 70.3%-owned Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co., or Shuanghui, and wholly owned Smithfield Foods Inc. In the US, its key packaged meats brands, in which it has an 8% market share, include Nathan's hot dogs, Armour, John Morrell, and Curly's, while in China, products are mainly under the Shuanghui brand, where it also has a 32% market share. We expect the company's operating profit to be split almost equally between the US and China going forward with a small contribution from Europe.
