The fiscal 2011 second quarter results included a foreign exchange loss of $0.1 million due to a weaker U.S. dollar as compared to a gain of $0.5 million in the prior-year period.

U.S. case sales were 65,825 nine liter cases in the fiscal 2011 second quarter as compared to 67,351 cases in the prior-year period.
