In addition to the results prepared in accordance with GAAP, we have presented certain non-GAAP financial measures, including pro forma adjusted financial information for periods prior to 2013 and adjusted financial information for 2013, such as net sales, net income and diluted earnings per share. We show non-GAAP measures presented on a pro forma adjusted basis as if the Company had operated on an independent and stand-alone basis in all periods presented prior to 2013 in order to facilitate meaningful evaluation of our operating performance between periods. These pro forma and other adjustments in 2012 primarily relate to various commercial arrangements with Dean Foods, and its former subsidiary Morningstar, that were entered into in connection with the separation of the Company’s business from the rest of Dean Foods’ businesses; increased corporate costs to operate as a stand-alone public company; interest expense; completion of the IPO and the use of proceeds therefrom; non-recurring transaction costs related to the Company’s IPO; and equity awards to certain of our executive officers, employees and directors made in connection with the IPO. Adjustments in 2013 include certain corporate costs associated with equity awards in conjunction with our IPO, non-recurring transaction costs related to the July 2013 offering by Dean Foods for its shares of the Company, non-recurring transition costs related to our separation from Dean Foods, and the non-cash write down related to assets held for sale. These adjustments are intended to allow investors to evaluate our business on the same basis as our management. These pro forma adjustments and other adjustments are not necessarily indicative of our future performance and the 2012 adjustments do not reflect what our actual financial performance would have been had we been a stand-alone public company during the applicable periods presented. Further detail regarding these pro forma and other adjustments is included in the tables below.
