Following the presentation, the conference will be opened for question. (Operator Instructions) This conference is being recorded today Tuesday, July 24, 2012.
And I’d now like to turn the conference over to Erica Abrams of the Blueshirt Group. Please go ahead.
Hello, and thanks for joining us today, as we report financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Joining me on the call today, are John Foraker, CEO; and Kelly Kennedy, CFO of Annie’s.
I will now present our comments on forward-looking statements. Some of the statements we make during this conference call are forward-looking, including statements concerning our positioning for future growth, investments in areas of strategic focus including continued innovation, increasing demand for natural and organic food products and our expectations concerning market position and operating information.
The forward-looking statements made on this conference call are based on management’s current expectations and are subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances and are therefore subject to significant risks. We cannot assure you that future developments affecting us will be those that we have anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from those expectations. Our reported results should not be considered an indication of future performance. There are many potential risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from our current expectations, as well as those risks and uncertainties included in our risk factors section of our filings with the SEC, which were available on our Investor Relations portion of our website at Annies.com, and on the SEC website at sec.gov.
