LOS ANGELES , June 13, 2012 () – Premier Foods sought to reassure investors concerned with the recent fall in the company’s stock price, saying that it maintained its full-year expectations, Reuters reported June 12.

Shares of Premier Foods have fallen more than 50% since late March and the company is dealing with debt of close to ₤1 billion (US$1.6 billion) that it built up during a spending spree prior to the credit crunch in 2007.

Premier Foods has been in a number of debt refinance talks and has undertaken a restructuring program that includes cutting costs and jobs. Also, earlier this month the company lost chairman Ronnie Bell when he resigned to pursue other interests.
