Form 8-K for CONAGRA FOODS INC /DE/


5-Nov-2013

Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

Today, November 5, 2013, members of senior management of ConAgra Foods, Inc. (the "Company") will meet with members of the investment community. The Company expects to affirm its previously announced guidance of fiscal 2014 diluted earnings per share ("EPS"), adjusted for items impacting comparability, to be approximately $2.34-$2.38, and fiscal 2014 second-quarter diluted EPS to be in the range of $0.55, adjusted for items impacting comparability. The Company therefore expects the full year's growth in EPS to occur in the second half of the fiscal year. The Company continues to expect approximately $0.25 of EPS contribution from Ralcorp in fiscal 2014, adjusted for items impacting comparability.

The Company continues to expect at least 10% annual comparable EPS growth in the fiscal 2015-2017 period, and the synergies from the Ralcorp transaction to reach $300 million of annual pretax cost-related synergies by the end of fiscal 2017.

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes the non-GAAP financial measure of diluted EPS, adjusted for items impacting comparability. Management considers GAAP financial measures as well as such non-GAAP financial information in its evaluation of the Company's financial statements and believes this non-GAAP measure provides useful supplemental information to assess the Company's operating performance and financial position. The inability to predict the timing and amount of future items impacting comparability makes a detailed reconciliation of earnings per share growth impracticable.

Investors and security holders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. ConAgra Foods disclaims any obligation to update or revise statements contained in this press release to reflect future events or circumstances or otherwise.
