 TreeHouse Foods Reaffirms Preliminary Second Quarter Net Sales and Earnings

PR Newswire

OAK BROOK, Ill., July 15, 2014

OAK BROOK, Ill., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE:
THS) announced today that preliminary net sales for the second quarter of 2014
are in line with the Company's expectations of approximately $625 million,
which represents an increase of over 18% from the same period last year. The
anticipated increase is primarily due to acquisitions, which should contribute
just over 14% of the increase. In addition, preliminary results indicate a
positive volume/mix of over 5% for the quarter and a nearly 1% decline
resulting from the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange rates. In
TreeHouse's North American Retail Grocery segment, the Company estimates
positive volume/mix of approximately 6%, as increases in beverages, pickles
and salad dressings product categories resulted in year over year growth.
Total adjusted earnings are expected to be very close to consensus estimates
for the quarter. Such updated net sales, volume/mix information and earnings
are estimates and actual results may differ.

"We are pleased to reaffirm our June 30th comments on the top line sales
achievements in the second quarter," said Sam K. Reed, Chairman, President and
Chief Executive Officer. "We are especially proud of the sales growth in our
Retail Grocery channel as this reflects the joint efforts of our sales,
marketing and product development teams to bring great product solutions to
our grocery customers."
