Jefferies boosted estimates and its price target on Einstein Noah Restaurant (NASDAQ: BAGL) following Q1 results and news the company is exploring strategic alternatives.

The firm raised Q1 EPS from $0.20 to $0.24, FY12 from $0.93 to $1.15 and FY13 from $1.11 to $1.41.

The firm comments, "BAGL is an attractive way to gain exposure to the Fast Casual segment in a lower-risk biz model (predictability of being nearly 50% franch/lic). In addition to potential upside in '12 related to SSS drivers, we think '13 is shaping up well, with a growing development pipeline & biz that is on-track to deliver 10% sys gr starting as soon as '12."
