Dean Foods Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Stocks in this article: DF

The earnings per share, operating income and interest expense information that will be provided today are from continuing operations and have been adjusted to exclude the expenses related to facility closings and reorganizations, expenses related to asset write-downs, expenses related to litigation matters, gains or losses from the divestiture of assets and other nonrecurring items in order to enable you to make a meaningful evaluation of our operating performance between periods. The press release contains a more detailed discussion of the reasons why these items are excluded from the consolidated results, along with reconciliations between GAAP and adjusted earnings and between net cash flow from continuing operations and free cash flow from continuing operations.

We also would like to advise you that all forward-looking statements made on today's call are intended to fall within the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements will include, among others, disclosure of earnings targets as well as expectations regarding our branding initiatives, expected cost savings, leverage ratios, the proposed IPO and various other aspects of our business. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made on today's conference call. Information concerning those risks is contained in the company's periodic reports on forms 10-K and 10-Q and in our earnings release.

Participating with me in the prepared section of today's call are Gregg Engles, our Chairman and CEO; and Shaun Mara, our Chief Financial Officer. Gregg will start us off by providing some comments related to the filing of the S-1 for WhiteWave Foods Company, followed by a review of this quarter's results and the current business environment. Then Shaun will offer some additional perspective on our financial results before turning the call back to Gregg for comments on the forward outlook and other closing remarks. We will then open the call for your questions. With that, I will turn the call over to Gregg for his opening remarks. Gregg?
