(Reuters) - Kraft Heinz Co KHC.O said on Wednesday it would report results for the first six months of the year on Aug. 8, its first financial statement since disclosing a more than $15 billion writedown on its iconic Kraft and Oscar Mayer brands.

Since the writedown in February, Kraft Heinz has appointed a new chief executive officer and restated its earnings for nearly three years following a regulatory investigation into lapses in its procurement practices.

The packaged food company said it was now required to provide first-quarter financial statements on or before Aug. 13. The company had previously said it would file its quarterly report for the quarter ended March 30 on or before July 31.(

Kraft’s shares were marginally up in premarket trading. The stock has fallen 34% since Feb. 21, when the company disclosed the writedown and the SEC investigation.
