On October 31, 2012, we completed our initial public offering and sold 23,000,000 shares of Class A common stock to the public at a price of $17.00 per share. Prior to completion of our initial public offering, Dean Foods contributed all of the capital stock of WWF Opco to WhiteWave in exchange for 150,000,000 shares of Class B common stock.

Under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, the contribution of WWF Opco to WhiteWave is treated as a reorganization of entities under common control under Dean Foods. As a result, we have retrospectively presented our unaudited pro forma adjusted condensed consolidated financial information of WhiteWave and WWF Opco for all periods presented.

The tables below provide certain unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated statement of operations information and certain unaudited pro forma adjusted condensed consolidated statement of operations information for the periods presented, which have been derived by application of pro forma adjustments to our historical financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 and certain other adjustments described below. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated statements of operations and unaudited pro forma adjusted condensed consolidated statements of operations for all periods presented give effect to our initial public offering and separation of our business from Dean Foods’ other businesses as if those transactions had occurred or had become effective as of January 1, 2011.

The adjustments below are based upon available information and certain assumptions that we believe are reasonable. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information and unaudited pro forma adjusted condensed financial information are for illustrative and informational purposes only and do not purport to represent what our financial position or results of operations would have been if we had operated as a stand-alone public company during the periods presented or if the transactions had actually occurred as of the dates indicated, nor do they project our financial position at any future date or our results of operations or cash flows for any future period.
