Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant

On February 24, 2014, as a result of a competitive process and following careful deliberation, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Snyder's-Lance, Inc. (the "Company") appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending January 3, 2015, subject to certain conditions including PwC's acceptance of the engagement following the completion of its client acceptance procedures. The Audit Committee's appointment of PwC became effective on February 25, 2014.

KPMG LLP ("KPMG") was previously the principal accountants for the Company. On February 24, 2014, KPMG was dismissed as the Company's independent auditors, upon completion of their audit of the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 28, 2013 and December 29, 2012 and the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 28, 2013, and the issuance of their reports thereon. Their audit was completed on February 25, 2014.

The audit reports of KPMG on the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 28, 2013 and December 29, 2012 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the fiscal years ended December 28, 2013 and December 29, 2012, and the subsequent interim period through February 25, 2014, (i) there were no "disagreements" (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions) between KPMG and the Company on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of KPMG, would have caused KPMG to make reference thereto in its report on the consolidated financial statements for the relevant fiscal year, and (ii) there were no "reportable events" (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

During the fiscal years ended December 28, 2013 and December 29, 2012, and the subsequent interim period through February 25, 2014, neither the Company, nor anyone on its behalf, consulted PwC regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company by PwC that PwC concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a "disagreement" (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a "reportable event" (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
