(NYSE: PEP) today reported net revenue growth of 4 percent and constant currency net revenue growth of 5 percent.  Reported EPS was $0.71 and core EPS was $0.69, in line with management's expectations.  Management reaffirmed both its 2012 core constant currency EPS guidance and long-term financial targets and stated that its 2012 strategic initiatives are on track.(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120424/NY93895LOGO ) "Our first quarter results reflect the strength of our brands which allowed us to implement significant pricing actions," said PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi.  "Effective pricing and packaging initiatives drove 5 percent constant currency net revenue growth, allowing us to substantially offset approximately $300 million in commodity cost inflation.""With disciplined pricing now in place, we're doubling our focus on the other key initiatives for 2012.  Our top priorities include stepping up our brand support through increased advertising and marketing, accelerating our innovation, and driving an aggressive productivity agenda that includes a significant restructuring program."All of these initiatives were launched in Q1 with good results, are on track, and will gain momentum as the year progresses.  We're executing on a clear, deliberate game plan that will enhance our competitiveness while also positioning PepsiCo for sustainable growth and value creation for the long term."(1)  Please refer to the Glossary for the definitions of constant currency and core.  Constant currency results and core results are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items.  Please refer to "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP financial information" in the attached exhibits for a description of these items.Operating and Marketplace Highlights Grew net revenue in three of our four business units on a reported basis and grew net revenue in all four business units on an organic basis. Achieved 5.5 points of effective net pricing globally. Grew both global snacks and global beverage revenue. Grew global nutrition revenue 10 percent. Grew net revenue 9 percent in emerging markets.  Emerging market net revenue grew 13 percent on a constant currency basis. Held LRB value share to maintain our leadership in measured channels relative to primary competitor in the U.S., the largest global beverage market. Increased media spending in the U.S. by 25 percent in the first quarter. Ranked No. 1 for contribution to revenue growth in U.S. convenience stores. Gained Family Dollar, a leading retailer with more than 7,000 outlets in North America, as a new beverage customer. Completed strategic alliance with Tingyi, China's largest beverage manufacturer, on March 31.  China is the world's second largest LRB market and the alliance creates a system with a relative market share of 1.6 times the next largest competitor's position.  The alliance also creates the country's largest LRB manufacturing network with more than 70 plants. Net capital spending declined by $122 million in the quarter and was 4.7 percent of net sales over the last four quarters, an improvement of 80 basis points over the comparable prior four quarters. Summary of First Quarter Financial PerformanceReported net revenue increased 4 percent and constant currency net revenue increased 5 percent, led by double-digit growth in the Europe and AMEA divisions and mid-single-digit growth in PepsiCo Americas Foods. Net revenue benefited from 5.5 percentage points of effective net pricing, offset by negative foreign currency translation of 1 percentage point.  Acquisitions contributed less than 1 percentage point to net revenue growth. Reported operating profit was flat and core operating profit declined 6 percent.  Operating profit performance was in line with management's expectations and reflected the impact of division operating profit performance and higher corporate unallocated expenses.  Reported operating profit included $84 million in mark-to-market gains on commodity hedges and $35 million of restructuring, impairment and integration charges. Division operating profit declined 1 percent and core division operating profit declined 2 percent.  Division operating profit performance reflected net revenue growth, which was substantially offset by approximately $300 million of commodity cost inflation.    Net interest expense was $175 million, an increase of $12 million, primarily driven by higher debt balances. Reported effective tax rate was 26.7 percent, 10 basis points below the prior year quarter.  Core effective tax rate was 26.7 percent, 70 basis points above the prior year quarter, reflecting geographic mix shift and the favorable resolution of certain tax matters in the first quarter of 2011. Reported EPS of $0.71 was even with the prior year quarter and core EPS was $0.69, a decline of 7 percent, in line with management's expectations. Reported EPS includes a $0.04 per share benefit from mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges, and a negative $0.01 per share impact of restructuring, impairment and integration charges. A $1 billion pretax discretionary pension and retiree medical payment in the quarter contributed to an operating cash flow use of $690 million. Management operating cash flow (excluding certain items) was $79 million in the quarter.  The company returned almost $1 billion to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases in the quarter, and expects to return more than $6 billion to shareholders for the full year 2012.

Growth in Latin America was led by double-digit gains in Mexico, high-single-digit growth in Argentina and mid-single-digit growth in Brazil.  Operating profit declined in the quarter, primarily as a result of increased commodity costs which offset the benefits of net pricing and savings resulting from recent restructuring activities. EuropeNet revenue increased 13 percent, reflecting the benefit of the Wimm-Bill-Dann (WBD) acquisition and 5 percentage points of effective net pricing, offset partially by unfavorable foreign currency translation impact of 4 percentage points.  Volume increased double-digits in both snacks and beverages for the quarter including the impact of the WBD acquisition.  Snacks volume increased 3 percent on an organic basis with gains led by the United Kingdom, South Africa and Russia.  Beverage volume declined 1 percent on an organic basis, with growth in the United Kingdom and Germany offset by declines in Turkey and Russia, which were lapping double-digit gains.  Operating profit performance reflected the net revenue gains and favorable effective net pricing, offset by commodity cost inflation and an unfavorable foreign currency translation impact of 2 percentage points.  In addition, operating profit performance was negatively impacted by unfavorable settlements of promotional spending accruals which decreased operating profit by 15 percentage points.Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA)Net revenue growth of 12 percent was driven by effective net pricing and volume growth.  Snacks volume increased 16 percent and beverage volume grew 2 percent.  Snacks delivered its 9th consecutive quarter of double-digit volume growth in AMEA, with first quarter snacks volume growing double digits in India, Australia, Thailand and the Middle East.  Beverage volume growth was driven by double-digit gains in India, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.  China beverage volume performance was impacted by the introduction of a consumer-preferred 500ml PET value package in the third quarter of 2011, which drove unit growth but adversely impacted reported volume growth. Operating profit grew 7 percent, with volume growth and 7 percentage points of effective net pricing offset partially by higher commodity costs. Restructuring As previously announced, the company has committed to a multi-year productivity program.  The company incurred pre-tax non-core restructuring charges of $33 million in the first quarter of 2012 and anticipates additional charges of approximately $392 million in the balance of 2012 and another $102 million from 2013 through 2015.  These charges resulted in cash expenditures of $44 million in the first quarter of 2012, and the company anticipates additional cash expenditures of approximately $506 million in the remainder of 2012, with the balance of approximately $175 million of related cash expenditures in 2013 through 2015.  2012 Guidance and OutlookConsistent with its previous guidance for 2012, the company expects a decline in core constant currency EPS of approximately 5 percent from its fiscal 2011 core EPS of $4.40.  Based on the current forex market consensus, foreign exchange translation would have an unfavorable impact of approximately two percentage points on the company's full year core EPS performance in 2012.  The company expects core constant currency net revenue growth of low-single-digits reflecting the impact of structural changes, principally refranchisings, which are expected to reduce core constant currency net revenue growth by approximately three percentage points for the full year.  Excluding these structural changes, core constant currency net revenue is expected to grow mid-single-digits, consistent with the company's prior guidance.  The company is targeting approximately $8 billion in cash flow from operating activities and more than $6 billion in management operating cash flow (excluding certain items) in 2012, which includes the favorable impact of an expected 10 percent reduction in capital spending and improved working capital efficiency.  The company also made a pretax discretionary pension and retiree medical contribution of $1 billion in the first quarter of 2012.Reflecting its commitment to return capital to shareholders, the company anticipates more than $3 billion in share repurchases for 2012, and expects to pay $3.3 billion in dividends.  The dividend reflects a 4 percent dividend per share increase effective with the dividend payable in June 2012, making 2012 the company's 40th consecutive year of dividend per share growth.Conference Call At 8 a.m. (Eastern Time) today, the company will host a conference call with investors to discuss first-quarter results and the outlook for 2012.

The 53rd week increased net revenue by $623 million and operating profit by $109 million in the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.Commodity mark-to-market net impactIn the quarter ended March 24, 2012, we recognized $84 million of mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses.  In the quarter ended March 19, 2011, we recognized $31 million of mark-to-market net gains on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses.  In the year ended December 31, 2011, we recognized $102 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses.  We centrally manage commodity derivatives on behalf of our divisions.  Certain of these commodity derivatives do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment and are marked to market with the resulting gains and losses recognized in corporate unallocated expenses.  These gains and losses are subsequently reflected in division results when the divisions take delivery of the underlying commodity.   Restructuring and impairment chargesIn the quarter ended March 24, 2012, we incurred restructuring and impairment charges of $33 million in conjunction with our multi-year productivity plan (Productivity Plan), including $8 million recorded in the FLNA segment, $5 million recorded in the QFNA segment, $6 million recorded in the LAF segment, $8 million recorded in the PAB segment, $9 million recorded in the AMEA segment and credits of $1 million and $2 million recorded in the Europe segment and in corporate unallocated expenses, respectively, representing adjustments of previously recorded amounts.  In the year ended December 31, 2011, we incurred charges of $383 million in conjunction with our Productivity Plan, including $76 million recorded in the FLNA segment, $18 million recorded in the QFNA segment, $48 million recorded in the LAF segment, $81 million recorded in the PAB segment, $77 million recorded in the Europe segment, $9 million recorded in the AMEA segment and $74 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses.  The Productivity Plan includes actions in every aspect of our business that we believe will strengthen our complementary food, snack and beverage businesses by leveraging new technologies and processes across PepsiCo's operations, go-to-market and information systems; heightening the focus on best practice sharing across the globe; consolidating manufacturing, warehouse and sales facilities; and implementing simplified organization structures, with wider spans of control and fewer layers of management.Merger and integration chargesIn the quarter ended March 24, 2012, we incurred merger and integration charges of $2 million related to our acquisition of WBD and recorded in the Europe segment.  In the quarter ended March 19, 2011, we incurred merger and integration charges of $55 million related to our acquisitions of PBG, PAS and WBD, including $21 million recorded in the PAB segment, $42 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses and a credit of $8 million recorded in the Europe segment, primarily reflecting a gain on our previously held equity interest in WBD.  These charges also included closing costs and advisory fees related to our acquisition of WBD.  In the year ended December 31, 2011, we incurred merger and integration charges of $329 million related to our acquisitions of PBG, PAS and WBD, including $112 million recorded in the PAB segment, $123 million recorded in the Europe segment, $78 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses and $16 million recorded in interest expense.  These charges also included closing costs and advisory fees related to our acquisition of WBD.  A ? 7 Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information (cont.)(unaudited)Inventory fair value adjustmentsIn the quarter ended March 19, 2011, we recorded $34 million of incremental costs in cost of sales related to fair value adjustments to the acquired inventory included in WBD's balance sheet at the acquisition date and hedging contracts included in PBG's and PAS's balance sheets at the acquisition date.  In the year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded $46 million of incremental costs in cost of sales related to fair value adjustments to the acquired inventory included in WBD's balance sheet at the acquisition date and hedging contracts included in PBG's and PAS's balance sheets at the acquisition date.  Management operating cash flowAdditionally, management operating cash flow 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 management operating cash flow which we believe investors should consider in evaluating our management operating cash flow results.2012 guidanceOur 2012 core constant currency EPS guidance excludes the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges, and restructuring and impairment charges.  In addition, our 2012 core constant currency net revenue and EPS guidance excludes the impact of foreign exchange.  We are not able to reconcile our full-year projected 2012 core constant currency EPS growth to our full-year projected 2012 reported results because we are unable to predict the 2012 impact of foreign exchange or the mark-to-market net gains or losses on commodity hedges due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates and commodity prices.  In addition, we are unable to reconcile our full-year projected 2012 core constant currency net revenue growth to our full-year projected reported net revenue growth because we are unable to predict the 2012 impact 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. A ?
