Explanatory Note

 

This Amendment No. 1 is being filed by B&G Foods to amend the Current Report on Form 8-K originally filed by B&G Foods with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on December 1, 2020 to provide the information required by Item 9.01(a) and (b) of Form 8-K relating to B&G Foods’ acquisition of the Crisco oils and shortening business from The J.M. Smucker Company and certain of its affiliates. In this amendment, we refer to this acquisition as the Crisco acquisition and the Crisco oils and shortening business as the Crisco business. The information previously reported and the exhibits previously filed or furnished in Items 2.01, 7.01 and 9.01(d) of the original filing are incorporated by reference into this amendment.

 

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

 

It is impracticable to prepare and audit complete stand-alone financial statements of the Crisco business because:

 

  · the Crisco business consisted of only part of The J.M. Smucker Company and was not operated as a “stand-alone” division or subsidiary;

 

  · Stand-alone financial statements relating to the Crisco business were never previously prepared, and The J.M. Smucker Company’s independent auditors have not historically audited or reported separately on the operations or net assets of the Crisco business. As a result, the distinct and separate accounts necessary to present a complete “stand-alone” balance sheet and statements of income and cash flows have not been maintained; and

 

  · The J.M. Smucker Company does not believe that it can objectively allocate certain corporate expenses to the Crisco business.

 

In addition, we do not believe that such financial statements would provide relevant information to users of our financial statements about the specific assets and operations acquired from The J.M. Smucker Company. Among other reasons, because we are integrating the Crisco business into our organizational structure (and accordingly our cost structure), we believe that a presentation of complete financial statements that includes allocations of certain corporate expenses of The J.M. Smucker Company would not be meaningful to our investors. The Crisco business represented less than 2% of the total assets and less than 4% of the total revenues of The J.M. Smucker Company on a consolidated basis for its most recently completed fiscal year.

 

As a result, in accordance with Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X, B&G Foods has provided the abbreviated financial statements described below.

 

(a)       Financial Statements of Business Acquired.

 

The following abbreviated financial statements of the Crisco business are being filed with this amendment as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 and are incorporated by reference herein:

 

  · Audited Abbreviated Financial Statements of The J.M. Smucker Company Crisco Business, which Comprise the Statement of Assets Acquired and Liabilities Assumed as of April 30, 2020 and the related Statement of Revenue and Direct Operating Expenses for the year ended April 30, 2020.

 

  · Unaudited Abbreviated Interim Financial Statements of The J.M. Smucker Company Crisco Business, which Comprise the Statement of Assets Acquired and Liabilities Assumed as of October 31, 2020 and the related Statement of Revenue and Direct Operating Expenses for the two quarters ended October 31, 2020.
