Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On June 27, 2013, ConAgra Foods, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release and posted a question and answer document (Q&A) on its website containing information on the Companys fourth quarter fiscal 2013 financial results. The press release and Q&A are furnished with this Form 8-K as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively.
The press release and Q&A include the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, adjusted operating profit for the Consumer Foods segment, adjusted operating profit for the Ralcorp segments, adjusted unallocated corporate expense, effective tax rate excluding items impacting comparability and net debt. 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 the Companys operating performance and financial position. To the extent required, these measures are reconciled in the press release and Q&A to the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, the Companys diluted earnings per share, operating performance and financial measures as calculated in accordance with GAAP. The inability to predict the amount and timing of future items makes a detailed reconciliation of projections of diluted EPS and effective tax rate, adjusted for items impacting comparability, impracticable.
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.
