Annie’s Inc. (BNNY)
Barclays Capital Back-to-School Consumer Conference
September 6, 2012 3:00 PM
John Foraker – CEO
Kelly Kennedy – CFO
Thank you. Our next presenter will be Annie’s which is presenting at the Back-to-School Conference for the first time. Following the company’s IPO earlier this year, Annie’s has established itself as one of the few pure play in natural and organic food company which has enabled to articulate a growth strategy that differentiates it from most food peers. We are pleased to have CEO John Foraker and CFO Kelly Kennedy with us here to discuss the company’s forward plans. Note the company will be able to take some questions here in the big room but we will be able to do a breakout if they got to get out to a meeting right after this. And we’ll go from there. Over to you John.
Thank you very much everybody. It’s great to be here. I am joined by Kelly Kennedy and we are excited to present the business to you today. Hopefully, in this short presentation, we will be able to give you a good idea of the business, our brand and update you on our key growth initiatives in the business.
These pictures here on – actually I should say, or we might be able to say Safe Harbor, see my attorney is happy. But these pictures here on this page reflect the approachable personal way that we built the Annie’s brand for over 20 years. And building the brand in this authentic passion and being approachable and connected to our core consumers is one of the key to our success. And as a result, you can see we manifest that in everything that we do.
