Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

“We continued to expand our operations in fiscal 2013 as we completed another acquisition during the second quarter,” added Baker. “As previously announced, we acquired the commercial egg production and related assets of Texas-based Maxim Production Co., Inc., including a feed mill and two production complexes with capacity for approximately 3.5 million laying hens with related pullet capacity. In addition, we added related contract capacity for approximately 500,000 laying hens. This transaction, along with our previous acquisition of the Pilgrim’s Pride egg production assets, further advances our strategy to grow our business through selective acquisitions. Our management team is focused on making the right investments to ensure a successful integration of these additional facilities. We are pleased with our progress to date and look forward to the new opportunities ahead for Cal-Maine Foods.”

For the second quarter of fiscal 2013, Cal-Maine Foods will pay a cash dividend of approximately $0.199 per share to holders of its common and Class A common stock. The amount paid could vary slightly based on the amount of outstanding shares on the record date. The dividend is payable February 14, 2013, to shareholders of record on January 30, 2013.
