Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On March 25, 2010, ConAgra Foods, Inc. issued a press release and posted a question and answer document on its website containing information on the third quarter fiscal 2010 financial results. The press release and Q&A are furnished with this Form 8-K as exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively.
The release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted operating profit for the Consumer Foods segment, adjusted unallocated corporate expense and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations. Management considers GAAP financial measures as well as such non-GAAP financial information in its evaluation of the Companys financial statements and believes these non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information to assess our operating performance. These measures are reconciled in the release to the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, our diluted earnings per share and operating performance measures as calculated in accordance with GAAP.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
