(NASDAQ: MDLZ) today reported fourth quarter and full year 2012 results, reflecting solid organic revenue growth, higher gross and operating income margins, and significant investments in innovation, advertising and consumer support, and sales and distribution capabilities to drive Power Brand growth.(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121003/MM86695LOGO) "This was a transformational year for our company," said Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and CEO.  "We successfully completed the spin-off of Kraft Foods Group, resulting in a significant increase in shareholder value, and delivered solid top-line growth and higher Adjusted Operating Income margins across all geographies.  We remain relentlessly focused on driving our global snacking platforms and Power Brands while leveraging our strong routes-to-market to deliver on the exciting promise of our new growth company."Full Year 2012 HighlightsNet revenues were $35.0 billion, down 2.2 percent.  Organic Net Revenues increased 4.4 percent, including contributions from favorable pricing of 3.3 percentage points and higher volume/mix of 1.1 percentage points.  Power Brands grew nearly double the company rate at 8.1 percent, and included double-digit increases in belVita, Barni, Oreo and Tuc/Club Social biscuits, Lacta and Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, Cadbury Eclairs candy, and Tassimo and Tang beverages. 1 Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release.  Operating income was $3.6 billion, up 4.0 percent.  Adjusted Operating Income1,2 grew 7.1 percent on a constant currency basis.   Effective management of input costs and favorable volume/mix were key drivers of the gain, partially offset by a significant increase in A&C support.  In addition, the company recognized a number of significant one-time items3 during the year, which together tempered growth by approximately 1 percentage point.  Adjusted Operating income margin was 12.2 percent, up 0.7 percentage points.  Diluted EPS was $1.69, down 15.1 percent.  Operating EPS1 was $1.39 including a negative impact of $0.06 from currency.  On a constant currency basis, Operating EPS increased 5.1 percent, as positive impacts of $0.16 from operations and $0.09 of lower interest expense were partially offset by negative impacts from a higher tax rate of $0.16 and prior-year accounting calendar changes of $0.04. Fourth Quarter 2012 HighlightsNet revenues were $9.5 billion, down 1.9 percent.  Organic Net Revenues1 increased 3.7 percent, including 2.1 percentage points from higher volume/mix and 1.6 percentage points of favorable pricing.  Lower coffee prices negatively impacted growth by approximately 0.6 percentage points.  Overall, Power Brand growth of 7.4 percent and a rebound in Developing Markets' performance fueled the increase in Organic Net Revenues.  Operating income was $1.0 billion, up 16.5 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Operating Income increased 1.1 percent, driven by effective cost management and higher volume/mix, partially offset by a significant increase in A&C support.   Additionally, the company recognized a number of significant one-time items4 during the quarter, which together moderated growth by approximately 7 percentage points.   Adjusted Operating Income margin was essentially flat at 11.0 percent.  Diluted EPS was $0.30, down 36.2 percent.  Operating EPS was $0.36, including a negative $0.01 impact from currency.  On a constant currency basis, Operating EPS decreased 5.1 percent as negative impacts of $0.12 from a higher tax rate and $0.02 from prior-year accounting calendar changes were mostly offset by $0.09 of lower interest expense and $0.04 from operating gains. 1Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release.2Adjusted Operating Income excludes the following items:a.Integration Program Costs: the costs associated with combining the Mondelez International and Cadbury businesses, and are separate from those costs associated with the acquisition;b.Restructuring Program Costs: non-recurring restructuring and related implementation costs reflecting primarily severance, asset disposals and other manufacturing-related non-recurring costs;c.Spin-Off Costs: non-recurring transaction and transition costs associated with preparing the businesses for independent operations consisting primarily of financial advisory fees, legal fees, accounting fees, tax services and information systems infrastructure duplication. In addition, Spin-Off Costs include financing and related costs to redistribute debt and secure investment grade credit ratings for both Mondelez International and Kraft Foods Group;d.Spin-Off Related Pension Adjustment: impacts from the transfer of certain North American benefit obligations to Kraft Foods Group;e.Divestitures: Operating income from divested businesses and gains & losses from divestitures, net;f.Acquisition-Related Costs: includes transaction advisory fees, stamp taxes and other fees.3Includes a trademark impairment charge and the unfavorable impact from prior year accounting calendar changes and the 53rd week of shipments, which more than offset a gain on asset sale and the favorable impact of accrual reversals in Europe.4Includes a trademark impairment charge and the unfavorable impact from prior year accounting calendar changes and the 53rd week of shipments which more than offset the favorable impact of accrual reversals in Europe Developing Markets Regained MomentumDeveloping Markets5 delivered solid full year results as organic top-line growth accelerated in the fourth quarter.Full Year:  Net revenues increased 0.2 percent.  Organic Net Revenues1 grew 7.0 percent, with contributions from both higher pricing and volume/mix.  Power Brands grew strongly, up 12.1 percent, led by Cadbury Dairy Milk, Lacta and Milka chocolate, Oreo and Barni biscuits and Halls candy.Segment operating income increased 3.2 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income1 increased 5.2 percent as effective input cost management and volume/mix gains more than offset a significant increase in A&C support and investments in sales capabilities.  These results also included a gain on an asset sale, which was offset by a trademark impairment charge.Fourth Quarter:  Net revenues increased 2.7 percent.  Organic Net Revenues grew 7.6 percent, with solid contributions from both volume/mix and pricing.  Double digit increases in Asia Pacific and Latin America drove the growth, while Brazil and Russia improved sequentially.  Power Brands grew 12.7 percent.Segment operating income in the fourth quarter decreased 7.1 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income decreased 4.0 percent as a double-digit increase in A&C support and a trademark impairment charge were partially offset by volume/mix gains and effective input cost management.Volume/Mix Strength Drove Europe's Performance Europe5 delivered solid results in a difficult environment led by Power Brand-driven volume/mix gains and continued benefits from a focus on productivity and overhead reduction.    Full Year:  Net revenues decreased 6.7 percent.  Organic Net Revenues increased 2.3 percent, driven by strong volume/mix growth in each quarter (adjusting for the Easter shift).  Power Brands grew 4.7 percent, led by Milka and Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, Oreo and belVita biscuits, the chocobakery platform, Tassimo beverages and Philadelphia cream cheese.  Segment operating income increased 14.7 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income grew 5.2 percent, as effective cost management, volume/mix gains and the favorable impact of a one-time item more than offset a significant increase in A&C and the negative impact of prior-year accounting calendar changes6. 1Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release.5In December 2012, we announced a reorganization of our management and reporting structure following the Spin-Off of Kraft Foods Group. Beginning in 2013, our operations, management and operating segments will reflect: Asia Pacific; Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa ("EEMEA"); Europe; Latin America and North America. Accordingly, we will begin reporting on our new segment structure during the first quarter of 2013, including all historical periods we present.6Includes the impact of accounting calendar changes and the 53rd week of shipments in 2011.  Fourth Quarter:  Net revenues decreased 7.1 percent.  Organic Net Revenues increased 0.1 percent as strong volume/mix growth, particularly in coffee and biscuits, was offset by significantly lower pricing in coffee.  Power Brands grew 3.0 percent.  Segment operating income increased 19.8 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income1 increased 5.7 percent as lower input costs and overheads, as well as the favorable impact of a one-time item, were partially offset by a significant investment in A&C and the negative impact of prior year accounting calendar changes.   Top- and Bottom-Line Gains in North AmericaStrong biscuit performance in the U.S. drove solid Organic Net Revenue1 and Adjusted Segment Operating Income growth.  Full Year:  Net revenues increased 1.0 percent.  Organic Net Revenues increased 2.4 percent, driven by 6.4 percent growth from Power Brands, led by Honey Maid, Triscuit, Oreo, Chips Ahoy! and Ritz biscuits.  This growth was partially offset by a 0.7 percentage point impact from product pruning in Canada.      Segment operating income increased 1.2 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income grew 5.1 percent as effective input cost management was partially offset by lower volume/mix and the negative impact of the 53rd week of shipments in the prior year.  Fourth Quarter:  Net revenues decreased 1.7 percent.  Organic Net Revenues grew 2.2 percent, driven by higher pricing, partially offset by lower volume/mix.  Power Brands grew 5.5 percent.  Biscuits in the U.S. delivered mid-single-digit growth, reflecting the continued benefits of a more focused direct store delivery sales force.  However, this was partially offset by temporary sales disruptions related to the separation of the Canadian grocery operations.  Segment operating income decreased 2.6 percent.  On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Segment Operating Income grew 3.4 percent as pricing was partially offset by the negative impact of the 53rd week of shipments in the prior year and higher A&C support.  Outlook"Our fourth quarter results provide good momentum as we enter 2013," said David Brearton, Executive Vice President and CFO.  "We remain bullish about the future of our business, and are reaffirming our 2013 Organic Net Revenue growth outlook to be at the low end of our long-term growth target of 5 to 7 percent.  Additionally, we're increasing our Operating EPS guidance to $1.52 - $1.57 to reflect average 2012 foreign currency rates as well as the recent devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar.  This represents double-digit growth in Operating EPS on a constant currency basis, consistent with our long-term growth targets."  1  Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release.  Conference CallMondelez International will host a conference call for investors with accompanying slides to review its results at 5 p.m. EST today.  Access to a live audio webcast with accompanying slides is available at www.mondelezinternational.com, and a replay of the event will also be available on the company's web site.About Mondelez International Mondelez International, Inc.

global snacking platforms and Power Brands; promise of our new growth company; and our Outlook, in particular, the good momentum, bullish about the future, 2013 Organic Net Revenue growth and Operating EPS.  These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in our forward-looking statements.  Such factors include, but are not limited to, pricing actions, continued global economic weakness, risks from operating globally and tax law changes.  Please also see our risk factors, as they may be amended from time to time, set forth in our filings with the SEC, including our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K.  Mondelez International disclaims and does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement in this press release, except as required by applicable law or regulation.Non-GAAP Financial Measures The company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").  The company's top-line measure is Organic Net Revenues, which excludes the impacts of acquisitions, divestitures, currency, Integration Program costs and accounting calendar changes.  The company uses Organic Net Revenues and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes Organic Net Revenues better reflects the underlying growth from the ongoing activities of our business and provides improved comparability of results.The company uses Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income, which is defined as operating income (or segment operating income) excluding: Integration Program costs; 2012-2014 Restructuring Program costs; Spin-Off Costs, including transaction fees and other costs associated with the Spin-Off of the North American grocery business; Spin-Off related pension adjustment, defined as the estimated benefit plan expense based on market conditions and benefit plan assumptions as of January 1, 2012, associated with certain benefit plan obligations transferred to KFG in the Spin-Off; acquisition-related costs; gains and losses from divestitures, net; and operating income from divestitures.  The company uses Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Segment Operating Income and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income provide improved comparability of operating results.The company uses Operating EPS, which is defined as diluted EPS attributable to Mondelez International excluding: Integration Program costs; 2012-2014 Restructuring Program costs; Spin-Off Costs; Spin-Off related pension adjustment (defined above); Spin-Off related interest adjustment, defined as the interest expense associated with the assumed reduction of $6 billion of our debt on January 1, 2011 from the utilization of funds received from the $6 billion of notes KFG issued directly and cash proceeds distributed to us in June 2012 in connection with our Spin-Off capitalization plan; acquisition-related costs; gains and losses from divestitures, net; and operating income from divestitures.  The company uses Operating EPS and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes Operating EPS provides improved comparability of operating results.Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company's results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, the non-GAAP measures the company is using may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are neither accessible nor deemed to be significantly different from the non-GAAP financial measures, and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, with regard to the non-GAAP financial measures in the company's Outlook, the company has not provided that information.  See the attached schedules for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures referred to above to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.  Segment Operating Income Management uses segment operating income to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources.  The company believes it is appropriate to disclose this measure to help investors analyze segment performance and trends.  Segment operating income excludes unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities (which are a component of cost of sales), certain components of our U.S. pension plan cost (which are a component of cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses), general corporate expenses (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses), amortization of intangibles, gains and losses from divestitures, net and acquisition-related costs (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses) for all periods presented.  The company excludes the unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities from segment operating income in order to provide better transparency of our segment operating results.  Once realized, the gains and losses on hedging activities are recorded within segment operating results.  The company centrally manages pension plan funding decisions and the determination of discount rate, expected rate of return on plan assets and other actuarial assumptions.  Therefore, the company allocates only the service cost component of our U.S. pension plan expense to segment operating income.  We exclude the gains and losses on the sales of businesses and acquisition-related costs from segment operating income in order to provide better transparency of our segment operating results. Accordingly, the company does not present these items by segment because they are excluded from the segment profitability measure that management reviews. Mondelez International Inc. and
