Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE:BNNY), has filed a class action lawsuit
in the United States District Court for the Northern District of

to discuss this matter.
Annie's, Inc. produces, markets and distributes natural and organic food
products, including meals, snacks, dressings, condiments and other
products. The Complaint alleges that defendants misrepresented and/or
failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's operations
and financial performance, including that:
The Company's historical methodology for estimating certain trade
allowances did not include all related trade promotion costs.
The Company's controls over accounting for conract manufacturing did
not sufficiently evaluate the valuation and accuracy of all contract
manufacturing receivables and payables.
The Company had a material weakness in its ability to detect
misstatements as a result of its insufficient controls.
As a result of its inadequate internal and financial controls, the
Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at
all relevant times.
On June 2, 2014, Annie's, Inc. disclosed that the Company had identified
a material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting
that was not effective as of March 31, 2014. According to the Company,
the material weakness related to "an insufficient complement of finance
and accounting resources…resulting in design deficiencies in certain
areas in which our controls were not precise enough to detect
misstatements that in the aggregate could be material to the
consolidated financial statements." Then, on June 3, 2014, after the
market close, Annie's announced that its independent registered public
accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers (News - Alert) LLP, was resigning effective the
earlier of August 11, 2014, or the completion of the Company's filing
with the SEC of the Form 10-Q for the period ending June 30, 2014.
