Flowers Foods (NYSE: FLO) disclosed the following in a U.S. SEC filing on Friday:

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On October 20, 2016, Flowers Foods, Inc. (the “Company”) became aware of an analyst report of BMO Capital Markets published on October 20, 2016, which stated that the Company had “reiterated its confidence in resolving outstanding legal issues without a material impact on its earnings and operations” at the recent National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Conference. This statement does not reflect the Company’s position on its outstanding lawsuits. As previously disclosed, the Company and/or its respective subsidiaries are vigorously defending these lawsuits. Given the stage of the complaints and the claims and issues presented, the Company cannot reasonably estimate at this time the possible loss or range of loss, if any, that may arise from the unresolved lawsuits. For additional information regarding these lawsuits, the Company directs investors to the disclosure previously made in its most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
