Vision & Growth Strategy
20
Steady Course
Following years of strong growth,
High Liner Foods remains on a steady course
to achieve its vision to be the leading supplier of
frozen seafood in North America
21
Industry Drivers
Long-term growth influenced by strong North American
demographics
An aging,
health-conscious
population
45+ years of age
account for half of seafood
consumption
Health benefits tied to
eating fish
• Fisheries recovering around the world largely due to the sustainability
efforts over the last ten years
• Growth from aquaculture species
• Long-term demand growth still greater than supply
22
2014 Strategic Goals
Profitable growth
• Organic growth, acquisitions and supply chain optimization
Supply chain optimization
• Optimize our systems in procurement and purchasing, inventory
management, product rationalization, and shipping and warehousing
Succession planning
• With a significant number of retirements expected in the next ten years, focus
is required to both develop and hire talent to elevate the organization when
retirement vacancies occur and to build the human capacity and expertise
necessary to support our growth strategy and ensure the successful integration
of acquired companies
$150M Adjusted EBITDA by 2016 (pro forma basis)
23
Growth Strategy
Innovation
• We are a recognized leader in our industry for introducing new and innovative
products and we will continue to focus on developing innovative product
offerings that both increase the overall demand for frozen seafood products
and grow our market share
Industry consolidation
• Seafood category is highly fragmented due to global supply chain and high
number of species
• Substantial growth over the next several years must come from acquisitions
that continue to consolidate the frozen seafood industry

Four acquisitions since 2007 have significantly consolidated the U.S. food
service channel and High Liner Foods has built a reputation as a successful
consolidator with the ability to achieve meaningful synergies through
integration of its acquisitions
