Reported segment operating profit (SOP) increased 6%, or $24 million, on net sales growth, ongoing productivity improvements and favorable commodity costs, partially offset by 1 percentage point of unfavorable foreign currency translation.

Reported income from operations for the quarter was $369 million, including $5 million in unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains. Reported income from operations was $348 million in the prior year period. Core income from operations was $365 million, up 5% compared to the prior year period.

Year-to-date, reported net sales increased 3%, and reported income from operations was $639 million, including $4 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains.

Core income from operations was $636 million, up 7% compared to the prior year period.

DPS President and CEO Larry Young said, "We've had a good start to the year, and I'm proud of what our teams have been able to accomplish in this competitive environment. They remained focused on our strategy and continued to deliver against our key priorities. Year-to-date, we grew volume and dollar share in both the CSD and shelf-stable juice categories in Nielsen measured markets and gained or held distribution and availability across our portfolio."

Beverage Concentrates Net sales increased 2% in the quarter driven by favorable product mix and concentrate prices taken earlier in the year, which were partially offset by a 1% decline in concentrate shipments and higher discounts. SOP increased 5% on net sales growth and lower marketing and information technology costs.

Packaged Beverages Net sales for the quarter increased 3% on favorable price/mix of 2% and a 1% increase in sales volumes. SOP increased 8% on net sales growth, ongoing productivity improvements and favorable commodity costs, partially offset by the cost of U.S. sourced products sold in Canada. Due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the cost of those U.S. sourced products sold in Canada decreased SOP 2%.

Latin America Beverages Net sales for the quarter increased 5% on a 7% increase in sales volumes, which was partially offset by increased promotional activity. SOP increased 29% on net sales growth, ongoing productivity improvements and favorable commodity and manufacturing costs, which were partially offset by the higher cost of certain U.S. dollar denominated input costs as a result of the strengthening U.S. dollar and higher logistics costs.

Corporate and Other Items For the quarter, corporate costs totaled $70 million, which included $5 million in unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains and increases in certain operating expenses. Corporate costs in the prior year period were $70 million.

Net interest expense was flat in the quarter.

For the quarter, the reported effective tax rate was 35.5%. The effective tax rate in the prior year period was 35.1%.

Cash Flow Year-to-date, the company generated $349 million of cash from operating activities compared to $438 million in the prior year. Capital spending totaled $42 million compared to $71 million in the prior year period. The company returned $423 million to shareholders in the form of stock repurchases ($251 million) and dividends ($172 million).

2015 Full-Year Guidance The company now expects full-year reported net sales to be up just over 1% and core EPS to be in the $3.85 to $3.93 range. Collectively, foreign currency translation and transaction are now expected to negatively impact net sales and core EPS growth by approximately 2% and 4%, respectively.

Packaging and ingredient costs are now expected to decrease COGS by approximately 1.5% on a constant volume/mix basis.

The company continues to expect its core tax rate to be approximately 35.5%.

The company continues to expect capital spending to be approximately 3% of net sales.

The company continues to expect to repurchase $500 million to $550 million of its common stock.

Definitions Bottler case sales (BCS) volume: Sales of finished beverages, in equivalent 288 fluid ounce cases, sold by the company and its bottling partners to retailers and independent distributors and excludes contract manufacturing volume. Volume for products sold by the company and its bottling partners is reported on a monthly basis, with the second quarter comprising April, May and June.

Sales volume: Sales of concentrates and finished beverages, in equivalent 288 fluid ounce cases, shipped by the company to its bottlers, retailers and independent distributors and includes contract manufacturing volume.

Pricing refers to the impact of list price changes.

Unrealized mark-to-market: We recognize the change in the fair value of open commodity derivative positions between periods in corporate unallocated expenses, as these instruments do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment. As the underlying commodity is delivered, the realized gains and losses are subsequently reflected in the segment results.

EPS represents diluted earnings per share.

Core financial measures are determined utilizing reported financial numbers adjusted for the unrealized mark-to-market impact of commodity derivatives and certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods.

Core metrics are determined based on the core financial measures.

Net sales and Segment Operating Profit, as adjusted to currency neutral: Net sales and Segment Operating Profit are calculated on a currency neutral basis by converting our current-period local currency financial results using the prior-period foreign currency exchange rates. Beginning in the second quarter of 2015, we excluded the impact of realized gains and losses on foreign currency transactions from our currency neutral calculation.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP INFORMATION

(Unaudited)

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP measures that reflect the way management evaluates the business may provide investors with additional information regarding the company's results, trends and ongoing performance on a comparable basis. Specifically, investors should consider the following with respect to our quarterly results:

Net sales and Segment Operating Profit, as adjusted to currency neutral: Net sales and Segment Operating Profit are calculated on a currency neutral basis by converting our current-period local currency financial results using the prior-period foreign currency exchange rates. Beginning in the second quarter of 2015, we excluded the impact of realized gains and losses on foreign currency transactions from our currency neutral calculation.

Free Cash Flow: Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital spending and certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods. For the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, there were no certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods.

Core earnings: Core earnings is defined as net income adjusted for the unrealized mark-to-market impact of commodity derivatives and certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods. The certain item excluded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 is an adjustment to a previously disclosed legal provision. For the  three and six months ended June 30, 2014, there were no certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods.

The tables on the following pages provide these reconciliations.
