Section 2 – Financial Information
Item 2.02
Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
 
On May 17, 2011, C. Larry Pope, president and chief executive officer, and Robert W. Manly, executive vice president and chief financial officer, of Smithfield Foods, Inc. (the "Company"), will make a presentation at the BMO Capital Markets 2011 Farm to Market Conference in New York, New York. The slides to be used in these meetings are furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and are incorporated by reference herein.
The presentation will contain certain non-GAAP financial information about the Company. The Company has included reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures in the presentation.
The non-GAAP financial measures in the presentation use financial measures computed in accordance with GAAP as a starting point. The GAAP measures are adjusted by the impact of certain significant items to arrive at the non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our business that, when viewed together with our financial results computed in accordance with GAAP, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our historical financial performance and projected future operating results. This combined view of GAAP and non-GAAP measures also provides greater transparency of underlying profit trends and better comparability of results across periods. Additionally, investors frequently request information from management regarding significant items and management believes, based on feedback it has received during earnings calls and discussions with investors, that these non-GAAP measures enhance investors' ability to assess our historical performance and to project future financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management also uses certain of these non-GAAP financial measures, in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures, to understand, manage and evaluate our businesses and in planning for and forecasting financial results for future periods.
