Michael Foods Group, Inc. reported a net loss of $5.2 million for its 13-week second quarter ended July 2, compared to a net loss of $49.3 million in 2010.

Net sales for the second quarter were $420 million, a 20% increase from $348.7 million in 2010. 

Net loss for the six months ended July 2 was $5.6 million. Net sales for the six-month period were $837.1 million.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other adjustments (Adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter ended July 2 were $47.4 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the six-month period ended July 2 was $103.8 million.
