Item 8.01 Other Events

On August 23, 2013, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the "HSR Act"), with respect to the previously announced proposed acquisition by Pinnacle Foods Inc. ("Pinnacle Foods") of the Wish-BoneŽ salad dressings business, including the Wish-BoneŽ and WesternŽ brands, from Unilever pursuant to an asset purchase agreement (the "asset purchase agreement") with Conopco, Inc., a subsidiary of Unilever. The grant of early termination is effective as of August 23, 2013 and has the effect of ending the HSR Act waiting period under the asset purchase agreement. The proposed acquisition remains subject to other customary closing conditions. Subject to the satisfaction of such closing conditions, Pinnacle Foods expects the acquisition to close later in the third quarter or early fourth quarter of 2013. Forward-Looking Statements
This current report contains statements that predict or forecast future events or results, depend on future events for their accuracy or otherwise contain "forward-looking statements." Such forward-looking statements include information concerning the anticipated acquisition of the Wish-BoneŽ business and our possible or assumed future results of operations, including the impact of the acquisition of the Wish-BoneŽ business on such results. These statements often include words such as "approximate," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate" or similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry, management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond our control. Accordingly, readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Actual results may differ materially as a result of various factors, some of which are beyond our control, including but not limited to: general economic and business conditions, deterioration of the credit and capital markets, industry trends, the loss of any of our major customers or suppliers, changes in demand for our or Wish-BoneŽ or WesternŽ products, changes in distribution channels or competitive conditions in the markets where we operate, costs of integrating acquisitions, including the Wish-BoneŽ business, loss of our intellectual property rights, fluctuations in price and supply of raw materials, seasonality, our reliance on co-packers to meet our manufacturing needs and the other risks and uncertainties detailed in our final prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 28, 2013 and subsequent reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, expectations may prove to have been materially different from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Unless otherwise required by law, we also disclaim any obligation to update our view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made in this current report.
