expansion in our Snacks segment. These results, however, were weighed down by
lower sales and gross margin compression in the Nuts segment due to higher
tree nut costs," said Brian Driscoll, President and CEO of Diamond Foods.

half of fiscal 2014, our team remains focused on the execution of our
multi-year turnaround strategy and we are confident that we are taking the
