Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On December 17, 2012, Diamond Foods, Inc. (Diamond or the Company) announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2012. A copy of the press release announcing those results is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1. This information shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and is not incorporated by reference into any filing of Diamond, whether made before or after the date of this report, regardless of any general incorporation language in the filing.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
Diamonds volume of snack sales and culinary and retail in-shell sales, which represent pounds sold, increased 5% and decreased 4%, respectively, from fiscal 2011 to fiscal 2012. The Companys 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K had incorrectly indicated under Results of Operations that snack pounds sold decreased 16% and culinary and retail in-shell pounds sold were flat, in that period. This correction does not impact revenue or the other financial information contained in the Annual Report.
