As we look back at 2011, it is important to note what we’ve accomplished. We invested $79 million to improve our production efficiencies, product quality and shipping logistics. We discontinued less efficient production, closing one bakery and several individual lines.As a result, we ended 2011 with our bakeries operating near-record levels of efficiency. In May, we acquired Tasty Baking and the iconic Tastykake brand. For the year, Tasty surpassed our sales expectations and also contributed slightly to earnings, not including acquisition cost.
