S. Georgia based company earnings up

August 19, 2004

Thomasville - That's a big improvement for the Thomasville-based company. A year ago, Flowers had a loss of more than $9 Million, due to poor performance by the Mrs. Smith's dessert line.

Flowers sold that company, increased automated plants and was the first commercial bakery to introduce a low carb bread.

Senior VP and CFO Jimmy Woodward said, "We have a lot of opportunity now to grow the business beyond our current territory to further penetrate sales in the current territory and expand our territory outside of the Southeast that we're currently in."

A net income of $15 Million was reported for the second quarter. which ended July 17th.
