PepsiCo Reports 3.1 Percent Revenue Growth for Q3

PEPSICO LOGOPURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE: PEP) reported organic revenue growth of 3.1 percent and core earnings per share of $1.36 for the third quarter.

“We delivered good third quarter results in the face of an ongoing challenged macroeconomic environment driven by increasing volatility in the emerging markets and continued sluggish consumer demand in developed markets,” said Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi.

“Our organic revenue grew three percent and we achieved positive effective net pricing through strong price/pack revenue management. Together with our relentless focus on productivity, this translated to both gross margin and operating margin expansion.

“We achieved these results because our brands are strong, our product portfolio is on-trend, our geographic footprint is broad and diverse, and we are executing well in the marketplace.

“Based on the strength of our year-to-date results and our outlook for the remainder of the year, we are raising our full year, core constant currency EPS growth target to nine percent.”

Summary of Third Quarter Financial Performance:

  • Organic revenue grew 3.1 percent and reported net revenue grew 2 percent. Foreign exchange translation had a 1-percentage-point unfavorable impact on reported net revenue.
  • Developing and emerging market organic revenue grew 8 percent. On a reported basis, developing and emerging market net revenue grew 3 percent, reflecting unfavorable foreign exchange translation.
  • Core gross margin and core operating margin expanded 45 basis points reflecting the implementation of effective revenue management strategies and productivity initiatives. Reported gross margin increased 55 basis points and reported operating margin increased 10 basis points.
  • Core constant currency operating profit increased 5.5 percent. Results reflect gains associated with divestitures of $20 million in QFNA and $15 million in AMEA partially offset by a $23 million impairment charge in Europe associated with a brand in Greece in the current-year quarter, and the lapping of $28 millionin incremental investments as well as net gains associated with divestitures in AMEA of $11 million recorded in the prior-year quarter. Reported operating profit increased 2 percent and included the net impact of mark-to-market losses on commodity hedges and restructuring and impairment charges.
  • The company’s core effective tax rate was 24.2 percent and the reported effective tax rate was 24 percent, both below the prior-year quarter.
  • Core EPS was $1.36 and reported EPS was $1.32. Core EPS excludes a negative net impact of $0.01 per share related to mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges and a $0.03 per share negative impact from restructuring and impairment charges. Mark-to-market net gains and losses on commodity hedges are subsequently reflected in core division results when the divisions recognize the cost of the underlying commodity in operating profit.
  • On track to deliver targeted $1 billion of productivity savings in 2014.
  • Cash flow provided by operating activities was $6.7 billion year to date. Free cash flow (excluding certain items) was $5.4 billion year to date.
  • The company expects to return a total of $8.7 billion to shareholders in 2014 through approximately $3.7 billion in dividends and $5.0 billion in share repurchases.

Division Operating Summaries:

Frito-Lay North America (FLNA)
Organic and reported net revenue increased 3 percent, reflecting a 2-percentage-point increase from organic volume and 1 percentage point of effective net pricing.

Core constant currency operating profit grew 6 percent, reflecting the organic revenue gains, productivity savings and lower commodity costs, partially offset by operating cost inflation.

Latin America Foods (LAF)
Organic revenue grew 9 percent, reflecting 12 percentage points of effective net pricing, partially offset by a 2.5 percent organic volume decline. Reported net revenue grew 6 percent, reflecting a 3-percentage-point unfavorable impact from foreign exchange translation.

Organic revenue in Mexico was even and volume declined 3 percent, reflecting the adverse impact of the enactment of taxes on certain food products. The balance of our Latin America Foods business experienced double-digit organic revenue growth led by growth in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil. Reported net revenue declined low-single digits in Mexico and increased double digits in the balance of our Latin America Foods business, each reflecting the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange translation.

Core constant currency operating profit increased 15 percent reflecting the organic revenue growth and productivity gains, partially offset by operating cost and commodity cost inflation.

Quaker Foods North America (QFNA)
Organic revenue declined 2 percent reflecting volume declines. Reported net revenue declined 3 percent, reflecting a 0.5-percentage-point unfavorable foreign exchange translation impact. Quaker gained value share in the quarter in each of its core categories in the U.S., which include hot cereal, ready-to-eat cereal and snack bars.

Core constant currency operating profit grew 10 percent driven by a gain associated with a divestiture, productivity gains, and improvement in the operating results of our Muller Quaker Dairy joint venture, which reflected start-up costs in the prior year, partially offset by the organic revenue decline and operating cost inflation. The gain associated with the divestiture contributed 14 percentage points to core operating profit growth.

PepsiCo Americas Beverages (PAB)
Organic and reported net revenue were even, reflecting even organic volume. During the quarter, PAB maintained its liquid refreshment beverage value market share position in the U.S. in measured channels.

In North America, non-carbonated beverage volume grew slightly and carbonated soft drink volume declined 1.5 percent. Latin America organic beverage volume increased 2.5 percent.

Core constant currency operating profit increased 4 percent, reflecting lower commodity costs, productivity gains, and effective net pricing, partially offset by operating cost inflation.

Europe
Organic revenue grew 1 percent, reflecting 2 percentage points of effective net pricing and volume growth of 2 percent in snacks partially offset by a 2 percent volume decline in beverages. Reported net revenue declined 1 percent, reflecting a 3-percentage-point unfavorable foreign exchange translation impact.

Core constant currency operating profit declined 6 percent, reflecting operating and commodity cost inflation and the impairment charge, partially offset by productivity savings. The impairment charge had a 4-percentage-point negative impact on core operating profit performance.

Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA)
Organic and reported net revenue grew 11 percent driven by 11 percent volume growth in snacks and 3 percent volume growth in beverages.

Core constant currency operating profit increased 8 percent, reflecting the organic revenue growth, productivity savings and the lapping of incremental investments in the prior-year quarter. In addition, the gain from a divestiture was partially offset by the lapping of gains from net divestitures in the prior-year quarter, which contributed 1 percentage point to core operating profit growth. These gains were partially offset by operating cost inflation and increased advertising and marketing expense.

2014 Guidance and Outlook:
The company now expects 9 percent (an increase from the company’s previous target of 8 percent) core constant currency EPS growth in fiscal 2014 versus its fiscal 2013 core EPS of $4.37. Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, the company expects foreign exchange translation to have an unfavorable impact of approximately 4 percentage points on full year core EPS growth in 2014.

Excluding the impact of structural changes and foreign exchange translation, organic revenue in 2014 is expected to grow mid-single digits versus 2013, consistent with the company’s long-term target. Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, the company expects foreign exchange translation to have an unfavorable impact of approximately 3 percentage points on full year net revenue growth in 2014.

For 2014, the company expects low-single-digit commodity inflation and productivity savings of approximately $1 billion. The company expects higher interest expense driven by increased debt balances and a core effective tax rate of approximately 25 percent.

The company is targeting over $10 billion in cash flow from operating activities and more than $7 billion in free cash flow (excluding certain items) in 2014. Net capital spending is expected to be approximately $3 billion in 2014, within the company’s long-term capital spending target of less than or equal to 5 percent of net revenue.

The company expects to return a total of $8.7 billion to shareholders in 2014 through dividends of approximately $3.7 billion and share repurchases of approximately $5.0 billion.

Conference Call:
At 8 a.m. (Eastern Time) today, the company will host a conference call with investors and financial analysts to discuss third quarter 2014 results and the outlook for 2014. Further details, including a slide presentation accompanying the call, will be accessible on the company’s website at www.pepsico.com/investors.

Terminology such as “aim,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “drive,” “estimate,” “expect,” “expressed confidence,” “forecast,” “future,” “goals,” “guidance,” “intend,” “may,” “objectives,” “outlook,” “plan,” “position,” “potential,” “project,” “seek,” “should,” “strategy,” “target,” “will” or similar statements or variations of such terms are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such terms. Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in demand for PepsiCo’s products, as a result of changes in consumer preferences or otherwise; changes in the legal and regulatory environment; imposition of new taxes, disagreements with tax authorities or additional tax liabilities; PepsiCo’s ability to compete effectively; PepsiCo’s ability to grow its business in developing and emerging markets or unstable political conditions, civil unrest or other developments and risks in the markets where PepsiCo’s products are sold; unfavorable economic conditions in the countries in which PepsiCo operates; increased costs, disruption of supply or shortages of raw materials and other supplies; failure to realize anticipated benefits from PepsiCo’s productivity initiatives or global operating model; disruption of PepsiCo’s supply chain; damage to PepsiCo’s reputation; failure to successfully complete or integrate acquisitions and joint ventures into PepsiCo’s existing operations or to complete or manage divestitures or refranchisings; PepsiCo’s ability to hire or retain key employees or a highly skilled and diverse workforce; trade consolidation or the loss of any key customer; any downgrade or potential downgrade of PepsiCo’s credit ratings; PepsiCo’s ability to protect its information systems against a cybersecurity incident; PepsiCo’s ability to build and sustain proper information technology infrastructure, successfully implement its ongoing business transformation initiative or share services for certain functions effectively; fluctuations or other changes in exchange rates; climate change, or legal, regulatory or market measures to address climate change; failure to successfully negotiate collective bargaining agreements or strikes or work stoppages; any infringement of or challenge to PepsiCo’s intellectual property rights; potential liabilities and costs from litigation or legal proceedings; and other factors that may adversely affect the price of PepsiCo’s common stock and financial performance.

Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. PepsiCo undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Miscellaneous Disclosures
In discussing financial results and guidance, the company may refer to certain non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations of any such non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures in accordance with GAAP can be found in the attached exhibits, as well as on the company’s website at www.pepsico.com in the “Investors” section under “Events & Presentations.” Our non-GAAP measures exclude from reported results those items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing performance and reflect how management evaluates our operating results and trends.

Glossary
Acquisitions and divestitures: All merger and acquisition activity, including the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and changes in ownership or control in consolidated subsidiaries and nonconsolidated equity investees.

Beverage volume: Volume shipped to retailers and independent distributors from both PepsiCo and our bottlers.

Constant currency: Financial results assuming constant foreign currency exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. In order to compute our constant currency results, we multiply or divide, as appropriate, our current year U.S. dollar results by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then multiply or divide, as appropriate, those amounts by the prior year average foreign exchange rates.

Core: Core results are non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain items from our historical results. In 2014, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses and restructuring and impairment charges. In 2013, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges in connection with our acquisition of Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods OJSC (WBD), restructuring and impairment charges, a charge related to the 2013 Venezuela currency devaluation and a tax benefit. In 2012, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges in connection with our acquisition of WBD, restructuring and impairment charges, restructuring and other charges related to the transaction with Tingyi, a pension lump sum settlement charge and a tax benefit related to a tax court decision. See “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information” for additional information.

A – 16

 

Division operating profit: The aggregation of the operating profit for each of our reportable segments, which excludes the impact of corporate unallocated expenses.

Effective net pricing: Reflects the year-over-year impact of discrete pricing actions, sales incentive activities and mix resulting from selling varying products in different package sizes and in different countries.

Free cash flow: Net cash provided by operating activities less capital spending plus sales of property, plant and equipment. See above for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure in accordance with GAAP (operating cash flow).

Free cash flow, excluding certain items: Free cash flow, excluding: (1) discretionary pension and retiree medical contributions, (2) payments related to restructuring charges, (3) net capital investments related to restructuring plan and (4) the tax impacts associated with each of these items, as applicable. This non-GAAP financial measure is our primary measure used to monitor cash flow performance. See above for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure in accordance with GAAP (operating cash flow). See “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information” for additional information.

Mark-to-market gain or loss or net impact: Change in market value for commodity contracts that we purchase to mitigate the volatility in costs of energy and raw materials that we consume. The market value is determined based on average prices on national exchanges and recently reported transactions in the marketplace.

Net capital spending: Capital spending less cash proceeds from sales of property, plant and equipment.

Organic: A measure that adjusts for impacts of acquisitions, divestitures and other structural changes, and in the case of organic revenue, foreign exchange translation. In excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, we assume constant foreign exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. See the definition of “Constant currency” for additional information.

Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information (unaudited)
Division operating profit, core results, core constant currency results and organic results are non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude certain items noted below. These measures are not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). However, we believe investors should consider these measures as they are more indicative of our ongoing performance and reflect how management evaluates our operational results and trends. These measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for GAAP reporting measures.

Commodity mark-to-market net impact

In the 12 weeks ended September 6, 2014, we recognized $33 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the 36 weeks ended September 6, 2014, we recognized $32 million of mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the 12 weeks ended September 7, 2013, we recognized $19 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the 36 weeks endedSeptember 7, 2013, we recognized $74 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the year ended December 28, 2013, we recognized $72 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the 12 weeks ended September 8, 2012, we recognized $121 million of mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. In the 36 weeks ended September 8, 2012, we recognized $126 million of mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. We centrally manage commodity derivatives on behalf of our divisions. These commodity derivatives include energy, agricultural products and metals. Certain of these commodity derivatives do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment and are marked to market each period with the resulting gains and losses recognized in corporate unallocated expenses, as either cost of sales or selling, general and administrative expenses, depending on the underlying commodity. These gains and losses are subsequently reflected in division results when the divisions recognize the cost of the underlying commodity in operating profit.

Merger and integration charges

In the 12 and 36 weeks ended September 7, 2013, we recorded merger and integration charges of $9 million related to our acquisition of WBD recorded in theEurope segment. In the year ended December 28, 2013, we incurred merger and integration charges of $10 million related to our acquisition of WBD recorded in theEurope segment. In the 12 weeks ended September 8, 2012, we incurred merger and integration charges of $2 million related to our acquisition of WBD, including $4 million recorded in the Europe segment and income of $2 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses representing adjustments of previously recorded amounts. In the 36 weeks ended September 8, 2012, we incurred merger and integration charges of $7 million related to our acquisition of WBD recorded in theEurope segment.

Restructuring and other charges related to the transaction with Tingyi

Tax benefits

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we recognized a non-cash tax benefit of $209 million associated with our agreement with the IRS resolving all open matters related to the audits for taxable years 2003 through 2009, which reduced our reserve for uncertain tax positions for the tax years 2003 through 2012.

Free cash flow, excluding certain items

Additionally, free cash flow (excluding the items noted in the Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities Reconciliation table) is the primary measure management uses to monitor cash flow performance. This is not a measure defined by GAAP. Since net capital spending is essential to our product innovation initiatives and maintaining our operational capabilities, we believe that it is a recurring and necessary use of cash. As such, we believe investors should also consider net capital spending when evaluating our cash from operating activities. Additionally, we consider certain other items (included in the Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities Reconciliation table) in evaluating free cash flow that we believe investors should consider in evaluating our free cash flow results.

2014 guidance and long-term targets

Our 2014 core tax rate guidance and our 2014 core constant currency EPS growth guidance exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses and restructuring and impairment charges. Our 2014 organic revenue growth guidance and our long-term organic revenue growth target exclude the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and other structural changes. In addition, our 2014 organic revenue growth guidance, our 2014 core constant currency EPS growth guidance and our long-term organic revenue growth target exclude the impact of foreign exchange. We are not able to reconcile our full year projected 2014 core tax rate to our full year projected 2014 reported tax rate or our full year projected 2014 core constant currency EPS growth to our full year projected 2014 reported EPS growth because we are unable to predict the 2014 impact of foreign exchange or the mark-to-market net impact on commodity hedges due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates and commodity prices. We are also unable to reconcile our full year projected 2014 organic revenue growth to our full year projected 2014 reported net revenue growth or our long-term projected organic revenue growth to our long-term projected reported net revenue growth because we are unable to predict the 2014 and long-term impacts of foreign exchange due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures.
