Dole Food Company, Inc. (NYSE:DOLE) today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 15, 2013, and reiterated guidance for full year 2013. In addition, Dole noted previously announced events during the quarter, namely, the April 1 completion of the sale of its former worldwide packaged foods and Asia fresh businesses, reported as discontinued operations, and the June 10 receipt of an unsolicited proposal from David H.

Dole also reported that during the second quarter, on May 10 and 13, it repurchased a total of 240,000 shares of its outstanding common stock at an average price per share of $11.26 (approximately $2.7 million) under the previously announced and now suspended share repurchase program.
