On October 4, 2012, Flowers Foods, Inc. (Flowers) filed amendment no. 1 (Amendment No. 1) to its Current Report on Form 8-K originally filed on July 23, 2012 (the Initial Form 8-K) to disclose the completion of its previously announced acquisition of Lepage Bakeries, Inc. and certain of Lepages affiliated companies (Lepage) for cash and shares of Flowers common stock. Included with Amendment No. 1 were the financial statements of Lepage as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 and the sixteen weeks ended April 21, 2012 and unaudited pro forma financial information of Flowers giving effect to the acquisition of Lepage and certain adjustments.
Due to a Lepage accountants error, the financial statements of Lepage as of and for the sixteen weeks ended April 21, 2012 contained certain errors. General and administrative expenses of Lepage for this period were understated by approximately $2.5 million, which resulted in an overstatement of income from operations, income before income taxes and net income by the same amount. This understatement led to an overstatement of (1) cash and cash equivalents of Lepage for this period by approximately $2.5 million, which impacted total current assets and total assets by the same amount, and (2) retained earnings of Lepage for this period by approximately $2.5 million, which impacted total stockholders equity and total liabilities and stockholders equity by the same amount. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information of Flowers for the sixteen weeks ended April 21, 2012 contained corresponding errors, including an overstatement of Flowers pro forma net income by approximately $1.5 million and an overstatement of pro forma diluted net income per common share by $0.01.
This Amendment No. 2 includes, as Exhibit 99.1, the corrected unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Lepage as of and for the quarter ended April 21, 2012, including corresponding corrections to the notes thereto, and, as Exhibit 99.2, a corrected copy of the unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information of Flowers, including corresponding corrections to certain pro forma adjustments and the related notes. Except as described above, all information contained in the Initial Form 8-K as amended by Amendment No. 1 remains unchanged.
