Net income for the quarter increased $19.2 million to $20.2 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, versus a net income of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2008.  Net income for the 40-week year-to-date period increased $60.7 million to $72.5 million, or $3.39 per diluted share, versus a net income of $11.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the 39-week year-to-date period of fiscal 2008.

"Our strategy to focus on store brands and our strongest-performing proprietary pasta brands continues to pay off," said Jack Kelly, CEO of AIPC.  "Despite the ongoing consolidation of AIPC brands, we were able to continue to boost sales volume in our Retail channel.  Our strong net income and gross margins also are enabling us to continue to strengthen our balance sheet and aggressively pay down debt.  As a result, we have even more strategic flexibility moving forward to implement our strategy and new growth initiatives, including product development and innovative marketing partnerships with our retail customers to increase pasta consumption."
