8 Integrated Supply Chain - Tuna
Thailand is the world’s largest exporter of canned tuna TUF is the world’s largest tuna processor by volume that allows competitive raw material sourcing and economies of scale (efficient cost control and value maximization by selling differentiated products to geographically and culturally diverse markets) Tuna Catching Marketing & Distribution to Retailers and End-Consumers (Third-party suppliers & own fishing fleet) Processing & Canning Can & Label Production (Thai Union Frozen, Thai Union Manufacturing, Songkla Canning, Samoa Packing, PT Jui Fai International Food, Yueh Chyang Canned Food) (Asian Pacific Can & Thai Union Graphic) -8-

9 Integrated Supply Chain - Shrimp
Thailand is the world’s largest shrimp exporting country TUF is a top shrimp processor and exporter in Thailand, especially for the US market End-to-end integration allows product traceability, food safety and total control of product quality traceability trail Brood Stock Breeding & Hatchery (Thai Union Hatchery) Marketing & Distribution to wholesalers, food-service outlets, and end- consumers Processing & Exporting Farming Feed Production & Distribution (partner farms in Thailand) (Thai Union Frozen & Thai Union Seafood) (Thai Union Feedmill) -9-

10 Volatile Tuna Prices Skipjack tuna raw material prices (WPO) What drive the tuna raw material price? TUF strategy USD / MT Catching situation / Weather (e.g. sea surface temperature, global warming) Price of fuel Number of fishing boats (purse- seiners) Market speculation Seasonality Packers’ demand Fishing technologies Operating own fishing vessels to enhance bargaining power Consistent and sizeable buying Cost-plus pricing Global sourcing intelligence Lean buffer stock and non-speculative inventory management 2008 Average: US$ 1,585 / metric ton 2009 Average: US$ 1,141 / metric ton -10-

11 Persistently High Shrimp Prices
Domestic shrimp raw material prices What drive the shrimp raw material prices? TUF strategy Shrimp size Domestic & overseas supply situation Strength of Thai Baht Disease outbreaks Packers’ demand Market speculation Seasonality Integrate the supply chain to achieve traceability and reliable quality control Source directly from select farms which practice good management and food safety standards Cost-plus pricing and consistent buying THB / KG White Shrimp (60 pcs / kg) 2008 Average: Bt 109 / Kg 2009 Average: Bt 107 / Kg -11-

12 Thai Baht Strength – A Manageable Challenge
-About 88% of the group’s revenues and 62% of the group’s costs are in US$ in 9M10. COSI plant relocation and rising shrimp sales increased our Thai baht exposure within the current cost structure, but partly offset by higher domestic sales -Given the cost structure of our Thailand operations, weaker Thai baht would normally benefit us. But active FX hedging, cost management and price adjustments helped keep our operating margins relatively stable even when Thai baht strengthened in the first 9 months of 2010 -12-

16 MW Brands: Financial Highlights
MWB Sales Breakdown By country By product In 2006 Trilantic acquired MWB through a carved out of various entities from the US food producer HJ Heinz at 8.9x EV/EBITDA MWB’s financial performance over the past four years reflects the implementation of a number of structural and strategic business changes that have focused on profitability rather than NSV The negative sales volume growth is the result of a strategic decision to discontinue loss-making and low gross margin products in the private label and foodservice channels The improved margin in 2010 was due to the strong brand equity especially in France.

17 MW Brands – Low Cost Producer
Unique strategic set-up delivers low cost production Strategic Location with High Barrier to Entry MWB’s production and processing facilities are located within easy access to two of the world’s best tuna fishing grounds, Seychelles (Western Indian Ocean) and Ghana (Atlantic Ocean). This enables MWB to access low cost tuna supply and flexibility to interchange production volumes between the two plants Low Cost Producer Status with Duty Free Access to EU Market MWB’s strategic locations not only provide optimal access to tuna but also enable MWB to benefit from low labor costs and zero import duty into EU market for ACP countries. TUF is currently paying 24% import duty to EU market Sustainable Low Tax Structure MWB benefits from a low corporate tax rate of 0% in Seychelles and 4% in Ghana Proximity to End Markets Low logistic cost from production facilities to end markets in the UK and Continental Europe -17-

19 Rationale For the Transaction Strengthen Market Positioning
Accretive value to shareholders by unlocking significant value from becoming globally integrated seafood firm Strengthen Market Positioning Create a global seafood player of scale as well as a truly global tuna company Access to Europe, the world’s largest ambient seafood market where MWB has leading positions in major countries, with continual cooperation from MWB’s strong management team Combined pro-forma sales of TUF and MWB of Euro 2.1 bn (USD 2.7 bn)1 with strong presence in 3 major continents namely USA, Europe, and Asia at well-balanced portion of one-third in each market. Currently, TUF’s sales contribution in USA, Europe, and Asia is approximately 50%, 13%, and 14%, respectively. Sales in Europe are mostly private label; thus, no cannibalization in European market Branded Products Combined branded products’ sales of TUF and MWB will account for approximately 61% with owned portfolio of leading brands in UK, France, and Italy. Currently, TUF’s branded products contributes approximately 50% of sales2 MWB’s iconic brands i.e. Petit Navire, John West, Mareblu, Hyacinthe Parmentier have established goodwill in European market in many past decades Seafood Integration Unlock significant revenue and cost synergies Optimize fleet vessel fishing grounds and procurement: MWB’s production facilities are located in Ghana and Seychelles, one of the major fish grounds. Once TUF transfers 4 vessels to Ghana, the fleets, totaling 9 vessels, will increase the capacity and efficiency of the overall fish catching. Average raw material cost will decrease due to the contribution of low fish cost sourcing by its own fleets in Ghana and long-term contract with French and Spanish fleets in Seychelles Capitalize on the high complementarity of TUF and MWB production facilities Share production know-how and commercial best practices Full integration of different production facilities and leveraging the know-how for the development of value-added products i.e. fish meal, fish oil, and fish extract. TUF plans to grow NSV of MWB with sustainable EBITDA margin by new products development i.e. frozen seafood, pet food, and leverage brand value to more European countries No import duty for Europe operations since the production facilities of MWB locate in ACP countries Notes: (1) Pro-forma combined sales for 12 months ended 31 Dec 2009: exchange rates of THB/EUR of and THB/USD of (2) Based on the TUF’s last twelve month (LTM) figure and the MWB’s FY ended 31 Mar 2010 -19-

20 Global Sourcing, Global Production and Global Markets

We have a global strategy, not just a Thailand strategy”

29 Outlook for 2011 Expect dollar sales to grow 30% thanks to consolidation of MW Brands in spite of the continual negative impact from strong Thai baht. Therefore, sales of all items should grow, particularly tuna Average group operating profitability should improve given MW Brands’ typically higher margins while overall financial gearing will increase due to the acquisition financing of MW Brands Expect positive EPS growth despite a small dilution effect from the right issue and private placement of new shares in October, 2010 Increase in pet food sales in the US through the new investment US Pet Solutions Semi-annual dividend payment will continue but will be capped at Bt 1.2 billion per year to meet the debt covenant until the debt-to-EBITDA ratio returns to the pre-acquisition level (3-4 years from now) -29-

30 Strategy For 2011 Integrate MW Brands into Thai Union Group in terms of corporate and financial reporting, procurement and production. Optimize MW Brands operations through coordination and technical assistance from TUF Transfer Thai Union fishing vessels to Ghana to enhance MW Brands’ fishing operations Launch more value-added products (higher margin) by the Thailand-based Culinary & R&D Center in order to serve custom requirements and expand to new market segments Actively manage financial (FX and interest rate) risks and scrutinize cash flows and debt covenants -30-

31 4-Year ( ) Sales Target of US$ 3 billion Will Almost Be Met By 2011 Thanks To MWB Acquisition So, A New Target…. US$ 4,000 billion in 2015 -31-

32 Highlights 9M10 performance was considered respectable given the presence of negative factors, namely stronger Thai baht, highly volatile tuna raw material prices and persistently high shrimp raw material prices. These negative factors disrupted sales and exerted pressure on margins Expect annual sales growth rate of 10% for 2010 (thanks to consolidation of MW Brands since November) while the financial position remains strong in terms of net profit, EBITDA and operating cash flows. Despite a challenging year so far, we remain positive that 2010 will be a comparable one to the record year of 2009 US operations contributed positively to the bottom line of the group so far after the COSI’s plant relocation and Empress & COSFF restructuring MW Brands (the deal was completed on October 29, 2010) is an once-in-lifetime opportunity that is highly complementary to TUF’s existing business despite the added debt burden -32-

36 Solid Financial Position in 9M10
Higher EBITDA In Spite of Slightly Lower Net Profit - Financial Position Stayed Strong Net profit (Bt2,521 m) was slightly lower than the same period a year ago but EBITDA (Bt4,723 m) was higher, thanks to higher other incomes and FX gains during the first 9 months this year. Financial position remained solid. Average margins were at about the same level from a year ago. In addition, operating and free cash flows were positive while D/E ratio stabilized between 0.6x - 0.7x since the end of 2009 and Debt-to-EBITDA inched up slightly from 2.07 to 2.20x (before the completion of the MW Brands acquisition). Debt Amount Unchanged Short Term Proportion Increased As of September 30, 2010 (pre-closing), interest-bearing debts rose temporarily to Bt 13,859 m from Bt 12,169 m at the end of Q2’10, partly due to the interim dividend payment and a lower level of accounts payable. The value of inventories and accounts receivables were fairly stable from Q2’10. Currently, 89% of our interest-bearing debts (local and abroad), amounting to Bt10,800 m, were short term, up from 58% at the end of Q1’10, essentially owing to a large portion of Thai baht bond issue worth Bt1,500 m and Bt3,200 m coming due in November 2010 and May, By the end of Q3’10, around 78% of our total debts were in Thai baht. The average effective interest rate for the group was 3.66% for Q3’10. -36-

42 Appendix 3a: Samoan Plant Ceased Operations
Background: American Samoa has been home to COSI’s processing plant (Samoa Packing) since 1954 There were 2,041 workers employed by Samoa Packing to carry out the full conversion process (from fish to cans) Mandated increasing minimum wages imposed by the federal government (in order to be in par with that of the mainland) added costs in a time of economic uncertainty that was indeed in an urgent need for cost savings Increasing costs and occasional inefficiencies led to management’s reassessment of the true strategic value of the Samoan plant -42-

43 Appendix 3b: Strategic Reasons For Relocation
Escalating costs in American Samoa due to: Increasing minimum wage Occasional inefficiencies and difficulties in efficient inventory control Need to enhance customer service by locating the plant onshore (near the market) Further integration with Thai plants to take advantage of the opportunities for cost-savings and better inventory management given a more coordinated supply chain Tuna loins for all oil and white meat products in the new facility will be supplied by TUF’s Thai plants while other existing tuna products, such as chunk light in spring water, will be completely packed by Thai plants. -43-

44 Appendix 3c: Details of the New Plant
Location: Lyons, Georgia Area: 220,000 sq. feet Expected number of employees: 220 employees, up to 330 in the future Planned capacity: 100 loin tons per day Expected annual output: 4 million cases Products: tuna-in-oil and white meat products -44-

45 Appendix 4: Top 10 US Seafood Consumption by Species in 2009
Seafood consumption in the US was pounds per capita in 2009 where fresh & frozen (11.8 pounds) + canned (3.7 pounds) + cured (0.3 pounds) Most of the seafood consumed in the U.S. was not caught in U.S. waters. About 84 percent of the seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported, a dramatic increase from the 66 percent just a decade ago. Farmed seafood, or aquaculture, comprises almost half of the imported seafood. The US is the third largest consumer of seafood behind China and Japan in terms of volume Species Pounds per Person per Year 1 Shrimp 4.10 2 Canned Tuna 2.50 3 Salmon 2.04 4 Pollock 1.45 5 Tilapia 1.21 6 Catfish 0.85 7 Crab 0.59 8 Cod 0.42 9 Clams 0.41 10 Pangasius 0.36 Source: H.M.

46 Appendix 5: Global Seafood Export Value in 2008 (US$94.5 billion)
Shrimp is the most important commodity with about 17% of international trade in value terms. It is interesting to note that this share is declining in recent years, due to lower prices for shrimp worldwide. Groundfish is another important group with 15% of trade. Tuna is third with 8%, however also for this commodity which is of most interest to all of you a certain decline in importance can be noted. The relative importance of salmon as an export item has increased over the past years from 5% in the early 1990s, to reach 7% in 1999 and 8% in 2008 as a result of the booming salmon farming industry in Norway and Chile (now in trouble, as you probably know). It is very likely that salmon will overtake tuna as the third most important fish commodity, maybe already in this very moment, as we are talking. Source: FISHDAB - Globefish -46-

48 Appendix 7: ACC 3-Star Certification
TUF is Thailand’s first shrimp producer to achieve Aquaculture Certification Council (ACC)’s three-star certification which ensures that its shrimp business unit’s operations meet a stringent set of social, environmental, and food safety standards, from hatchery, to farms, to processing plants – three types of facility which are represented by the three stars ACC is an independent and non-governmental US body to certify and promote best aquaculture practices For a facility to be certified, it needs to comply with Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) standards on community rights, compliance with all relevant regulations, worker safety and employee relations, effluent management, responsible use of chemicals and fuels, and responsible management of waste. Shrimp farms also cannot be located in mangrove or other ecologically sensitive areas -48-

49 Appendix 8a: Tuna Fish Sustainability
Currently, four Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) manage global tuna resources: 1. IATTC Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (1949) 2. ICCAT International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna (1969) 3. IOTC Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (1996) 4. WCPFC Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (2004) Current challenges related to RFMO’s: - Building consensus amongst members - Effectively limiting capacity or limiting fishing - Ensuring effective compliance with fishery regulations - Taking effective action for violating fisheries regulations - Improving the science and information / new technology -49- Appendix 8a: Tuna Fish Sustainability

50 Appendix 8b: TUF co-founding ISSF
Development of ISSF - International Seafood Sustainability Foundation ( 65% of the world tuna business have agreed to implement the NEW ORGANIZATION to manage this critical issue. TOP 3 U.S.A Tuna Companies TOP 3 European Tuna Companies TOP 2 Asian Tuna Producers Most Important Worldwide Tuna Brokers / Boat Owners Environmental Organizations Recognized Tuna Scientist ISSF board is composed of: Members representing the foundation (NGO) Tuna Scientists Environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGO) Opinion Leaders -50-

51 Appendix 8c: ISSF’s Survey of Tuna Stock
Green - Overfishing is not occurring and the fishery is not overfished. Yellow - There are one or more issues with the fishery but effective management practices are in place to ensure the sustainable management of the stocks. Red - Overfishing is occurring and the fishery is overfished. However, a management regime is in place that is addressing the issues. Black - Overfishing is occurring and the fishery is overfished: Management actions to bring the fishery back into a sustainable state are not being taken and members will cease to purchase until appropriate actions are taken -51-

52 Appendix 9: Import tariffs for Thai Tuna and Shrimp Products In Developed Markets
Canned tuna Frozen shrimp US - 0.5 cent per pound of frozen tuna loin - 6% for canned tuna in brine with a quota. Once the quota (determined annually as a percentage of domestic production) is filled, any additional imports will be subject to 12.5% duty - 35% on canned tuna in oil - 0% on all frozen products, except for the case of anti-dumping (AD) tariffs - Due to the AD duty, Thai shrimp in general is subject to 2.61% tariff - 5%, when canned with fish meat EU - 24% for canned tuna and tune loins but certain African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and Andean countries (e.g. Ecuador, Colombia) enjoy 0% due to preferential agreements with the EU - 20.5% for canned tuna as long as Thai exporters fulfilling the rule of origin requirement in GSP - 12% on frozen shrimp - 20% on canned shrimp - Due to the GSP privilege, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Pakistan pay only 4.8% for frozen shrimp and 7% for canned shrimp Japan - 9.6% for canned tuna. The Japan – Thailand Economic Partnership Agreement (JTEPA), since Nov 2007, allows this rate to drop to zero percent within 5 years as long as fish used are caught by ASEAN boats or members of Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC). - 0% due to JTEPA with effect since Nov 2007 -52-

53 Appendix 10: Tuna Fast Facts
Tuna never stop moving, they are always in motion and a typical tuna may eat 5 percent of its own weight in food in one day Unlike most fish, which are cold-blooded, tuna are able to maintain their temperature several degrees warmer than the water in which they find themselves. Albacore is the only species that can be labeled as "white meat tuna" in the U.S In recent years, the world’s tuna catch breaks down into approximately: skipjack at 60%; yellowfin at 25%; bigeye at 9%; albacore at 4% and bluefin at 1%. Yellowfin, skipjack, and bigeye tunas spawn widely throughout tropical waters The majority of US canned tuna is skipjack. Skipjack accounts for the largest share of tuna caught and eaten by people around the world Main fishing methods: 61% purse seine; 13.9% longline; 10.9% pole and line; 1.2% troll; and 12.4% others Stock status by species (based on ISSF survey ): Skipjack: stocks are overall a very healthy species of tuna with a majority of stocks being sustainably fished (mainly canning) Yellow fin: stocks are overall at or nearing the maximum level of fishing and need to be monitored (canning & sashimi) Albacore: stocks are overall healthy with some likely being fished at or near maximum level (canning) Bigeye: stocks are overall at or nearing the maximum level of fishing and need to be monitored with the exception being EPO bigeye which needs immediate conservation measures put in place by IATTC (mainly for sashimi) Blue fin: stocks are overly exploited and require immediate conservation measures (mainly for sashimi) -53-

54 Appendix 11: Potential Sources of Growth
Near term Economic recession forcing consumers to trade down to low price / highly affordable staple items, such as canned tuna and shrimp New products through new packaging designs/ technologies which provide consumers with convenience and ease of use, e.g. tuna / salmon pouches, ready-to-eat tuna / salmon steak pouches, peel-to-open tuna / salmon cups, ready-to-eat frozen meals, etc. M&A opportunities upon consolidation of the world tuna and shrimp industries Outsourcing/ contract manufacturing for private labels and existing retail brands Healthy eating trend of seafood upon more scientific proof of its importance in daily diet Removal of trade barriers through GSP privileges, Free Trade Agreements or WTO Long term New markets: China and Indian markets, as well as the Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe, where consumption of tuna is still low at the moment, but should grow in the future Higher demand for inexpensive nutritious food (protein) to feed the growing world population as a result of the increasing individual life span -54-

57 William B. Darden Supplier Award
2 years (2009 & 2010) in a row In the past 15 years, TUF has won 10 awards in different categories, but it is definitely an achievement of winning this top honor back to back. Again, only 11 out of over 1,500 global suppliers won the award this year and among this handful of winners, only two are seafood suppliers. The Bill Darden Distinguished Supplier of the Year Award is the highest level of honor awarded to the suppliers of the restaurant company. It is also one of the most prestigious awards for suppliers in the US food service industry. Based in Orlando, USA, Darden Restaurants is the world’s largest full-service restaurant company that owns and operates more 1,700 restaurants, including Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze, and Seasons 52.
