NORTHFIELD, Ill., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kraft Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: KFT) today reported second quarter and first half 2012 results that reflected strong growth in Power Brands, favorable pricing, significant productivity gains and aggressive overhead cost management in each geography.  The company also announced its intention to spin off the North American Grocery business on Oct. 1.

"Our second quarter and first half results reflect the success of our brand-building investments over the past few years and the resilience of our businesses," said Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and CEO.  "As we embark on our journey as two industry-leading, independent companies, I'm confident that both companies have the brands, the executional capability, and the leadership teams to succeed in their respective missions."

Net revenues in the second quarter were $13.3 billion, down 4.3 percent due to a 5.0 percentage point headwind from currency and a negative 2.7 percentage point impact due to the benefit of accounting calendar changes in the prior year quarter.  Organic Net Revenues increased 3.4 percent, driven by nearly 6 percent growth from Power Brands.  Favorable pricing of 4.0 percentage points was partially offset by 0.6 percentage points from lower volume/mix.  However, volume/mix was negatively affected by 1.2 percentage points from the shift of Easter-related shipments into the first quarter and by 0.5 percentage points from product pruning in North America.

For the first half of 2012, net revenues fell 0.3 percent, while Organic Net Revenue increased 4.9 percent.  Volume/mix contributed 0.2 percentage points despite substantial pricing and a negative 0.5 percentage point impact from product pruning.  Power Brands increased more than 8 percent.

Operating income in the second quarter was $1.9 billion, and operating income margin increased 1.1 percentage points to 14.1 percent.  Adjusted Operating Income(1), which excludes Integration Program(2) costs, Restructuring Program(3) costs and Spin-Off Costs(4), grew 8.3 percent to $2.1 billion as pricing and productivity gains more than offset the impact of higher raw material costs, increased investments in advertising and consumer support and higher pension costs.  A favorable impact from the year-over-year change of unrealized gains/losses from hedging activities was offset by unfavorable foreign currency and the benefit of accounting calendar changes in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted Operating Income margin rose 1.8 percentage points to 15.8 percent.

Diluted EPS in the second quarter was $0.58.  Operating EPS(1) was $0.68, up 9.7 percent, driven primarily by operating gains, which included a $0.01 headwind from higher pension costs.  Operating EPS benefited $0.05 from the year-over-year change of unrealized gains/losses from hedging activities, but this was offset by $0.03 from unfavorable foreign currency and $0.02 from accounting calendar changes.  Operating EPS increased 12.9 percent on a constant currency basis.

Diluted EPS in the first half of 2012 was $1.03.  Operating EPS increased 9.6 percent to $1.25, driven primarily by operating gains that included a $0.04 headwind from higher pension costs.  Unfavorable impacts of $0.02 from foreign currency and $0.02 from accounting calendar changes were largely offset by a $0.03 benefit from the year-over-year change of unrealized gains/losses from hedging activities.  In the first half of 2012, Operating EPS increased 11.4 percent on a constant currency basis.

Solid Top- and Bottom-Line Results in North America

Power Brands, new products and a favorable impact from carryover pricing actions drove solid organic net revenue and Adjusted Segment Operating Income(1) growth in Kraft Foods North America.

Net revenues in the second quarter increased 1.2 percent.  Organic Net Revenues(1) grew 1.7 percent, led by higher pricing across each business segment.  Although lower, volume/mix was negatively impacted by more than 1 percentage point from the Easter shift and by more than 1 percentage point from product pruning.  Power Brands grew more than 5 percent.      

Segment operating income increased 3.1 percent, including a negative 5.9 percentage point impact from Restructuring Program costs net of lower Integration Program costs versus the prior year.  Excluding these factors, Adjusted Segment Operating Income increased high single digits, reflecting strong gains from pricing and productivity that more than offset the impact of higher raw material costs and lower volume/mix. 

Strong Performance in Europe Despite Eurozone Challenges

Kraft Foods Europe drove strong underlying growth in an increasingly difficult macroeconomic environment by focusing on Power Brands, driving productivity gains and aggressively managing overhead costs. 

Net revenues in the second quarter decreased 14.8 percent, including negative impacts of 8.4 percentage points from currency and 7.8 percentage points from accounting calendar changes.  Organic Net Revenues(1) increased 1.4 percent, driven by the favorable carryover impact of pricing actions.  Volume/mix declined 1.1 percentage points, including the negative impact of approximately 2 percentage points from the Easter shift.  Power Brands grew 3 percent. 

Segment operating income declined 4.6 percent, including negative impacts of 9.0 percentage points from accounting calendar changes and 8.3 percentage points from currency, and a favorable 8.1 percentage point impact from lower Integration Program costs versus the prior year.  Excluding these factors, Europe's segment operating income grew as favorable pricing and productivity gains more than offset higher raw material costs and a strong increase in A&C support behind Power Brands.

Solid Performance in Developing Markets

Focused investments in Power Brands, expanded distribution capabilities and significant productivity efforts enabled Kraft Foods Developing Markets to deliver solid organic revenue and segment operating income growth.  Broad geographic diversity helped overcome challenging macroeconomic conditions in certain key countries.

Net revenues in the second quarter decreased 3.6 percent, including negative impacts of 8.7 percentage points from currency and 2.5 percentage points from accounting calendar changes.  Organic Net Revenues grew 7.6 percent, driven by a balance of higher pricing and volume/mix gains, including a negative impact of approximately 1 percentage point from the Easter shift.  Power Brands grew more than 8 percent.  

Segment operating income increased 5.0 percent, including a positive 6.0 percentage point impact from lower Integration Program costs (net of Restructuring Program costs) versus the prior year and a negative 7.6 percentage point impact from currency.  In addition, accounting calendar changes negatively affected growth by nearly 2 percentage points.  Excluding these factors, effective cost management and volume/mix gains drove segment operating income growth.  This was partially offset by higher SG&A, including a strong increase in A&C support.

OUTLOOK

"Our first half results are on-track with our previous annual guidance of Organic Net Revenue growth of approximately 5 percent and Operating EPS growth of at least 9 percent on a constant currency basis," said David Brearton, Executive Vice President and CFO.  "As we look forward, we're confident that we're launching two industry-leading companies, each with a great future."

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains a number of forward-looking statements.  Words, and variations of words such as "plans," "confirms," "expect," "will," "confident," and similar expressions are intended to identify our forward-looking statements, including but not limited to, the spin-off of our North American Grocery business; 2012 guidance; what both companies have so they can complete the separation; our outlook; and the timing, share distribution, trading dates and investor events related to the spin-off.  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, the successful separation of the company, continued volatility of input costs, pricing actions, increased competition, continued economic weakness 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.  Kraft Foods 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 divestitures (including for reporting purposes the Starbucks CPG business), currency 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 (formerly known as "Underlying Operating Income" and "Underlying Segment Operating Income," respectively), which is defined as operating income (or segment operating income) excluding costs related to:  the Integration Program; the Restructuring Program; and Spin-Off Costs, including transaction fees and other costs associated with the proposed spin-off of the North American grocery business.  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 Kraft Foods excluding costs related to:  the Integration Program; the Restructuring Program; and Spin-Off Costs.  The company uses Operating EPS and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes Operating EPS provides improved comparability of operating results.

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 six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.  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. 

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 its U.S. pension plan cost (which is a component of selling, general and administrative expenses), general corporate expenses (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses) and amortization of intangibles for all periods presented.  The company centrally manages pension plan funding decisions and 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 its U.S. pension plan expense to segment operating income.  The company excludes the unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities from segment operating income to provide better transparency of its segment operating results.  Once realized, the company records the gains and losses on hedging activities within 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.  


(1) Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release.

(2) Integration Program costs are defined as the costs associated with combining the Kraft Foods and Cadbury businesses, and are separate from those costs associated with the acquisition.

(3) Restructuring Program costs represent non-recurring restructuring and related implementation costs reflecting primarily severance, asset disposals and other manufacturing related non-recurring costs.

(4) Spin-Off Costs represent 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 the North American Grocery Business and the Global Snacks Business.
