Section 8 – OTHER EVENTS

 

Item 8.01 Other Events

 

On June 18, 2013, the Company issued a press release to provide revised earnings guidance for fiscal year 2013.  The text of the press release follows:

 

HORMEL LOWERS OUTLOOK FOR FISCAL 2013

 

“Austin, Minn., June 18, 2013 – Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL), a multinational marketer of consumer-branded meat and food products, today lowered its full year guidance range for fiscal 2013 from $1.93 - $2.03 per share to $1.88 - $1.96 per share.

 

‘Lower than expected results in our pork operations, higher input costs and softer sales of our retail products in our Refrigerated Foods segment are the primary reason for the expected shortfall in our second half results,’ said Jeffrey M. Ettinger, chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer.

 

‘We remain very bullish about our future earnings potential. We will provide more details regarding the outlook during our Investor Day on June 26, 2013,’ Ettinger concluded.
