NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

As of and for the six months ended June 30, 2012

(Unaudited)

1. Basis of Presentation

The unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included herein have been prepared by TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applicable to quarterly reporting on Form 10-Q. In our opinion, these statements include all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results of all interim periods reported herein. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted as permitted by such rules and regulations. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. Results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of annual results.

The preparation of our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires us to use our judgment to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, and the reported amounts of net sales and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

A detailed description of the Company’s significant accounting policies can be found in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

2. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On June 16, 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income which revises the manner in which entities present comprehensive income in their financial statements. This ASU removes the current presentation guidance and requires comprehensive income to be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or two separate but consecutive statements. This guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. ASU 2011-05 does not change current accounting and adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements. The Company adopted this guidance using the two separate but consecutive statements approach.

On May 12, 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement: Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. This ASU provides converged guidance on how (not when) to measure fair value. The ASU provides expanded disclosure requirements and other amendments, including those that eliminate unnecessary wording differences between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRSs”). This ASU is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company’s disclosures or fair value measurements as presented in Note 19.

3. Facility Closings

As of December 31, 2011, the Company closed its pickle plant in Springfield, Missouri. Production ceased in August 2011 and has been transferred to other pickle facilities. Production at the Springfield facility was primarily related to the Food Away From Home segment. Closure costs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were insignificant. For the three months ended June 30, 2011, costs of $0.8 million consisted of severance and disposal costs. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, costs relating to this closure consisted of a fixed asset impairment charge of $2.3 million; $0.3 million of severance and $0.6 million for disposal costs. These costs are included in Other operating (income) expense, net line in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

4. Acquisitions

On April 13, 2012, the Company closed its previously announced acquisition of substantially all the assets of Naturally Fresh, Inc. (“Naturally Fresh”), a privately owned Atlanta, Georgia based manufacturer of refrigerated dressings, sauces, marinades, dips and specialty items sold within each of our segments. Naturally Fresh has annual revenues of approximately $80 million. The purchase price is approximately $26 million, net of cash, subject to an adjustment for working capital and taxes. The acquisition was financed through borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The acquisition will expand the Company’s refrigerated manufacturing and packaging capabilities, broaden its distribution footprint and further develop its presence within the growing category of fresh foods. Naturally Fresh’s Atlanta facility coupled with the Company’s existing West Coast and Chicago based refrigerated food plants, will allow the Company to more efficiently service customers from coast to coast.

The acquisition is being accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting and the results of operations are included in our financial statements from the date of acquisition and are in each of our segments. Included in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income are net sales of $18.6 million and a loss of $1.6 million from the Naturally Fresh acquisition. At the date of acquisition, the purchase price was allocated to the assets and liabilities acquired based upon fair market values, and is subject to working capital and tax adjustments. No goodwill was created with this acquisition and an insignificant bargain purchase gain was recognized and recorded in the Other operating (income) expense, net line of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income. Prior to recognizing the gain, the Company reassessed the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the acquisition. The insignificant bargain purchase gain is the result of the difference between the fair value of the assets acquired and the purchase price. Pro forma disclosures related to the transaction are not included since they are not considered material. We have made an allocation to net tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed as follows:

The Company allocated $1.3 million to customer relationships that have an estimated life of twenty years, $0.8 million to trade names that have an estimated life of ten years, $0.1 million to a non-compete agreement with a life of 5 years, and $0.1 million to other intangible assets. The Company increased the cost of inventories by $0.4 million, and expensed the amount as a component of cost of goods sold in the second quarter of 2012. The Company incurred approximately $0.8 million in acquisition related costs. These costs are included in the General and administrative expense line of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

9. Income Taxes

Income tax expense was recorded at an effective rate of 29.0% and 29.8% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to 32.5% and 33.3% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate is favorably impacted by an intercompany financing structure entered into in conjunction with the E.D. Smith acquisition in 2007. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to 2011 is attributable to the tax impact of the repayment of certain intercompany debt and a decrease in the Canadian statutory tax rate.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company does not believe that its gross recorded unrecognized tax benefits will materially change within the next 12 months.

During the second quarter of 2012, the IRS initiated an examination of TreeHouse Foods’ 2010 tax year, the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) initiated an examination of the E.D. Smith 2008 and 2009 tax years, and during the fourth quarter of 2011 the IRS initiated an examination of S.T. Specialty Foods, Inc.’s (“S.T. Specialty Foods”) pre-acquisition tax year ended October 28, 2010. The outcome of the examinations is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The Company has various state tax examinations in process, which are expected to be completed in 2012 or 2013. The outcome of the various state tax examinations is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

11. Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the number of weighted average common shares outstanding during the reporting period. The weighted average number of common shares used in the diluted earnings per share calculation is determined using the treasury stock method and includes the incremental effect related to the Company’s outstanding stock-based compensation awards.

The following table summarizes the effect of the share-based compensation awards on the weighted average number of shares outstanding used in calculating diluted earnings per share:

Performance unit awards are granted to certain members of management. These awards contain service and performance conditions. For each of the three performance periods, one third of the units will accrue, multiplied by a predefined percentage between 0% and 200%, depending on the achievement of certain operating performance measures. Additionally, for the cumulative performance period, a number of units will accrue, equal to the number of units granted multiplied by a predefined percentage between 0% and 200%, depending on the achievement of certain operating performance measures, less any units previously accrued. Accrued units will be converted to stock or cash, at the discretion of the compensation committee, generally, on the third anniversary of the grant date. The Company intends to settle these awards in stock and has the shares available to do so. On June 29, 2012, based on achievement of operating performance measures, 46,959 performance units were converted into 93,918 shares of stock. Conversion of these shares was based on attainment of at least 120% of the target performance goals, and resulted in the vesting awards being converted into two shares of stock for each performance unit.

Non cash financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 include the settlement of 224,259 shares and 555,322 shares, respectively, of restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance units, where shares were withheld to satisfy the minimum statuary tax withholding requirements.

17. Commitments and Contingencies

Litigation, Investigations and Audits — The Company is party in the ordinary course of business to certain claims, litigation, audits and investigations. The Company believes that it has established adequate reserves to satisfy any liability that may be incurred in connection with any such currently pending or threatened matters. The settlement of any such currently pending or threatened matters is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position, annual results of operations or cash flows.

18. Derivative Instruments

The Company is exposed to certain risks relating to its ongoing business operations. The primary risks managed by derivative instruments include interest rate risk, foreign currency risk and commodity price risk. Derivative contracts are entered into for periods consistent with the related underlying exposure and do not constitute positions independent of those exposures.

The Company manages its exposure to changes in interest rates by optimizing the use of variable-rate and fixed-rate debt and by utilizing interest rate swaps to hedge our exposure to changes in interest rates, to reduce the volatility of our financing costs, and to achieve a desired proportion of fixed versus floating-rate debt, based on current and projected market conditions, with a bias toward fixed-rate debt.

Due to the Company’s operations in Canada, we are exposed to foreign currency risks. The Company enters into foreign currency contracts to manage the risk associated with foreign currency cash flows. The Company’s objective in using foreign currency contracts is to establish a fixed foreign currency exchange rate for the net cash flow requirements for purchases that are denominated in U.S. dollars. These contracts do not qualify for hedge accounting and changes in their fair value are recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income, with their fair value recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Certain commodities we use in the production and distribution of our products are exposed to market price risk. The Company utilizes a combination of derivative contracts, purchase orders and various short and long term supply arrangements in connection with the purchase of raw materials to manage commodity price risk. Commodity forward contracts generally qualify for the normal purchase exception under the guidance for derivative instruments and hedging activities, and therefore are not subject to its provisions.

The Company’s commodity contracts may include diesel, oil and certain plastics. The Company’s diesel contracts are used to manage the Company’s risk associated with the underlying cost of diesel fuel used to deliver products. The contracts for oil and plastics are used to manage the Company’s risk associated with the underlying commodity cost of a significant component used in packaging materials. As of December 31, 2011, the Company had outstanding oil contracts with a notional amount of 18,000 barrels which expired March 31, 2012. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had outstanding contracts for plastics with a notional amount of 7.0 million pounds and diesel contracts with a notional amount of 1.9 million gallons both expiring December 31, 2012.

Cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable are financial assets with carrying values that approximate fair value. Accounts payable are financial liabilities with carrying values that approximate fair value.

The fair value of the revolving credit facility, senior notes, high yield notes and commodity contracts are determined using Level 2 inputs. Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted market prices that are observable for an asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. The fair value of the revolving credit facility and senior notes were estimated using present value techniques and market based interest rates and credit spreads. The fair value of the Company’s high yield notes was estimated based on quoted market prices for similar instruments.

The value of the commodity contracts is based on an analysis comparing the contract rates to the forward curve rates throughout the term of the contracts. The commodity contracts are recorded at fair value on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

20. Segment and Geographic Information and Major Customers

The Company manages operations on a company-wide basis, thereby making determinations as to the allocation of resources in total rather than on a segment-level basis. The Company has designated reportable segments based on how management views its business. The Company does not segregate assets between segments for internal reporting. Therefore, asset-related information has not been presented. The reportable segments, as presented below, are consistent with the manner in which the Company reports its results to the chief operating decision maker.

The Company evaluates the performance of its segments based on net sales dollars and direct operating income (gross profit less freight out, sales commissions and direct selling and marketing expenses). The amounts in the following tables are obtained from reports used by senior management and do not include income taxes. Other expenses not allocated include unallocated selling and distribution expenses and corporate expenses which consist of general and administrative expenses, amortization expense, other operating expense, interest expense, foreign currency exchange and other income. The accounting policies of the Company’s segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies set forth in Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)

 

22. Subsequent Event

On August 7, 2012, the Company decided, following a strategic review of the soup category and its related business, to streamline its manufacturing capacity and close the Mendota, Illinois soup plant. Production at the Mendota facility is expected to cease in the first quarter of 2013, with full plant closure expected in the second quarter of 2013. Total costs to close the Mendota facility are expected to be approximately $17.7 million. Components of the charges include non-cash asset write-offs of approximately $11.4 million, severance of approximately $2.6 million, and other closure costs of approximately $3.7 million. Production will be moved to the Company’s Pittsburgh soup facility.

The Company will also close its salad dressing plant in Seaforth, Ontario, Canada and move production to facilities where the Company has lower production costs resulting from the recently completed capacity expansion. Production at the Seaforth, Ontario facility is expected to cease in the second quarter of 2013, with full plant closure expected in the third quarter of 2013. Total costs to close the Seaforth facility are expected to be approximately $17.3 million. Components of the charges include non-cash asset write-offs of approximately $10.9 million, severance of approximately $4.0 million, and other closure costs of approximately $2.4 million.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Business Overview

TreeHouse is a food manufacturer servicing primarily the retail grocery and foodservice distribution channels. Our products include non-dairy powdered creamers, private label canned soups, salad dressings and sauces, powdered drink mixes, hot cereals, macaroni and cheese, skillet dinners, Mexican sauces, jams and pie fillings, pickles and related products, aseptic sauces, refrigerated salad dressings and liquid non-dairy creamer. TreeHouse believes it is the largest manufacturer of pickles and non-dairy powdered creamer in the United States and the largest manufacturer of private label salad dressings, powdered drink mixes and instant hot cereals in the United States and Canada based on sales volume.

The following discussion and analysis presents the factors that had a material effect on our results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Also discussed is our financial position as of the end of those periods. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes to those Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included elsewhere in this report. This Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contains forward-looking statements. See “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” for a discussion of the uncertainties, risks and assumptions associated with these statements.

We discuss the following segments in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations: North American Retail Grocery, Food Away From Home, and Industrial and Export. The key performance indicators of our segments are net sales dollars and direct operating income, which is gross profit less the cost of transporting products to customer locations (referred to in the tables below as “freight out”), commissions paid to independent sales brokers, and direct selling and marketing expenses.

Our current operations consist of the following:

Our North American Retail Grocery segment sells branded and private label products to customers within the United States and Canada. These products include non-dairy powdered creamers; condensed and ready to serve soups, broths and gravies; salad dressings and sauces; pickles and related products; Mexican sauces; jams and pie fillings; aseptic products; liquid non-dairy creamer; powdered drinks; hot cereals; macaroni and cheese and skillet dinners.

Our Food Away From Home segment sells non-dairy powdered creamers, pickle products, Mexican sauces, refrigerated dressings, aseptic products and hot cereals to foodservice customers, including restaurant chains and food distribution companies, within the United States and Canada.

Our Industrial and Export segment includes the Company’s co-pack business and non-dairy powdered creamer sales to industrial customers for use in industrial applications, including products for repackaging in portion control packages and for use as ingredients by other food manufacturers; pickles; Mexican sauces; infant feeding products and refrigerated dressings. Export sales are primarily to industrial customers outside of North America.

The environment the Company operates in continues to be one that is challenged by the overall state of the economy, increased competition, and reduced volume. Also impacting the industry is continued volatility in energy and commodity prices. While energy and commodity costs trended lower earlier this year, they have increased recently due in part, to hot and dry weather, resulting in reduced expected production volume of agricultural commodities, and thus increasing future input costs. However, as a result of our purchasing programs, the Company does not expect that these higher costs will impact a large portion of our input costs this year.

Throughout the year, and consistent with our peers, sales volume growth has been challenging. However, the Company has been able to achieve an increase in net sales on a year to date basis over the same period last year, due to price increases while maintaining a relatively flat volume/mix. Additionally, the Company has continued to see a shift in sales to alternate retail channels, including dollar store, discount and limited assortment formats.

Recent Developments

On August 7, 2012, the Company decided, following a strategic review of the soup category and its related business, to streamline its manufacturing capacity and close the Mendota, Illinois soup plant. Production at the Mendota facility is expected to cease in the first quarter of 2013, with full plant closure expected in the second quarter of 2013. Total costs to close the Mendota facility are expected to be approximately $17.7 million. Components of the charges include non-cash asset write-offs of approximately $11.4 million, severance of approximately $2.6 million, and other closure costs of approximately $3.7 million. Production will be moved to the Company’s Pittsburgh soup facility.

The Company will also close its salad dressing plant in Seaforth, Ontario, Canada and move production to facilities where the Company has lower production costs resulting from the recently completed capacity expansion. Production at the Seaforth, Ontario facility is expected to cease in the second quarter of 2013, with full plant closure expected in the third quarter of 2013. Total costs to close the Seaforth facility are expected to be approximately $17.3 million. Components of the charges include non-cash asset write-offs of approximately $10.9 million, severance of approximately $4.0 million, and other closure costs of approximately $2.4 million.

On June 6, 2012, the Company recalled 74,000 boxes of pasta mix products based on information from a supplier that it provided the Company with a seasoning blend that may potentially contain small metal fragments. There have been no reports of any injury or illness associated with the recalled products. The recall is not expected to impact the Company’s relationship with its customers and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

On April 13, 2012, the Company completed its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Naturally Fresh, Inc. (“Naturally Fresh”), a privately owned Atlanta, Georgia based manufacturer of refrigerated dressings, sauces, marinades, dips and specialty items sold within each of our segments. Naturally Fresh has annual revenues of approximately $80 million. The Company paid a purchase price of approximately $26 million for the business, net of cash, subject to an adjustment for working capital and taxes. The acquisition was financed through borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The acquisition will expand the Company’s refrigerated manufacturing and packaging capabilities, broaden its distribution footprint and further develop its presence within the growing category of fresh foods. Naturally Fresh’s Atlanta facility, coupled with the Company’s existing West Coast and Chicago based refrigerated food plants, will allow the Company to more efficiently service customers from coast to coast.

On January 10, 2012, the Company repaid its cross-border intercompany loans with its Canadian subsidiary, E.D. Smith. The repayment totaled $67.7 million and included both principal and interest. Payment was financed with borrowings under our revolving credit facility. The loans were fully repaid and canceled at the time of payment. The cash will be held by E.D. Smith in short term investments as cash and cash equivalents. We expect to use the cash for general corporate purposes in Canada, including capital projects and acquisitions. The cash relates to foreign earnings that, if repatriated, would result in a tax liability.

Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2011

Net Sales — Second quarter net sales increased 7.1% to $527.4 million in 2012 compared to $492.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase is primarily driven by increases in pricing needed to offset higher input costs and the acquisition of Naturally Fresh. Net sales by segment are shown in the following table:
