B&G Foods Announces Tax Treatment Of Common Stock Dividends Paid In 2013

B&G Foods, Inc. (NYSE:BGS) today explained the tax treatment for dividends paid in 2013 on the Company’s common stock. Holders are urged to check their 2013 tax statements received from brokerage firms in order to ensure that the cash distribution information reported on such statements conforms to the information reported herein.

Additional information concerning the tax treatment of dividends paid in 2013 is posted to the Investor Relations section of B&G Foods’ website, www.bgfoods.com, under the heading “Investor FAQ.” Holders are also urged to consult their own tax advisors to determine their individual tax treatment.

In 2013, B&G Foods distributed $1.1900 per share of common stock (CUSIP # 05508R 10 6). Based on U.S. federal income tax laws, B&G Foods has determined that of such distributions, approximately 24.214% (or $0.2881490 per share) will be treated as a taxable dividend and approximately 75.786% (or $0.9018510 per share) will be treated as a return of capital. Generally, the portion of the distribution on the common stock that is treated as a return of capital should reduce the tax basis in the shares of common stock up to a holder’s adjusted basis in the common stock, with any excess treated as capital gains.
