To the Board of Directors and Shareholders
Bridgford Foods Corporation
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Bridgford Foods Corporation (the Company) as of October 30, 2009 and the related consolidated statements of operations, shareholders’ equity and comprehensive income (loss) and cash flows for the year then ended. Our audit also included the financial statement Schedule II of the Company. These financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Bridgford Foods Corporation and the results of its consolidated operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Also, in our opinion, the related financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.
We were not engaged to examine management’s assessment of the effectiveness of Bridgford Foods Corporation’s internal control over financial reporting as of October 30, 2009 included in the accompanying Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting under Item 9A and, accordingly, we do not express an opinion thereon.
