Net sales came in at $621.2 million, reflecting a 4.4% YoY increase primarily due to higher average sales prices of chicken. Net income was $24.4 million or $1.06 per share, compared with net income of $23.9 million, or $1.04 per share in Q2 FY 2012. "The results for our second quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect improved market conditions driven primarily by an overall increase in demand for poultry products," said Joe F. Sanderson, Jr., Chairman and CEO of the Company. "While our volumes reflect the production cuts we put in place last fall, demand for chicken remains strong from our retail grocery store and export customers. In addition, while customer traffic through food service establishments remains challenged by macroeconomic factors, several new chicken items on quick serve menus and chicken promotions in casual dining restaurants, coupled with relatively high priced beef, contributed to better market prices during the quarter for products produced at our food service plants."
