DEERFIELD, Ill., April 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mondelēz International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MDLZ) today reported its first quarter 2016 results, with strong Adjusted Operating Income margin expansion and Adjusted EPS growth on a constant currency basis, as well as solid Organic Net Revenue growth.

“We’ve had a good start to the year,” said Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and CEO. “We significantly expanded margins by continuing to reduce supply chain and overhead costs. In addition, we delivered improved volume/mix in developed markets, while effectively managing through the volatile operating environment in emerging markets. As a result, we’re confident in our ability to deliver our 2016 outlook that we shared in February.”

On a reported basis, net revenues were $6.5 billion, down 16.8 percent, driven by a negative 9.4 percentage point impact from the coffee transaction and a 7.2 percentage point headwind from currency. Operating income was $722 million, down 11.0 percent. Diluted EPS was $0.35, up $0.16.

Adjusted EPS grew 30.8 percent on a constant-currency basis, driven primarily by Adjusted Operating Income improvement.

Mondelēz International, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

The company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP” or referred to herein as “Reported”). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures should be considered when assessing the company’s ongoing performance to provide more complete information on the factors and trends affecting the company’s business. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the company’s performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company’s Reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures the company uses 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, the company has not provided that information with regard to the non-GAAP financial measures in the company’s outlook.

DEFINITIONS OF THE COMPANY’S NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The company’s non-GAAP financial measures and corresponding metrics reflect how the company evaluates its operating results currently and provide improved comparability of operating results. As new events or circumstances arise, these definitions could change over time:

  • “Organic Net Revenue” is defined as net revenues excluding the impacts of acquisitions, divestitures (1); the historical global coffee business (2); the historical Venezuelan operations; accounting calendar changes; and currency rate fluctuations. The company also evaluates Organic Net Revenue growth from emerging markets and its Power Brands.
  • “Adjusted Gross Profit” is defined as gross profit excluding the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program; the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program; the Integration Program and other acquisition integration costs; incremental costs associated with the JDE coffee business transactions; the operating results of divestitures (1); the historical coffee business operating results (2); and the historical Venezuelan operating results. The company also evaluates growth in the company’s Adjusted Gross Profit on a constant currency basis.
  • “Adjusted Operating Income” and “Adjusted Segment Operating Income” are defined as operating income (or segment operating income) excluding the impacts of Spin-Off Costs; the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program; the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program; the Integration Program and other acquisition integration costs; the Venezuela remeasurement and deconsolidation losses and historical operating results; impairment charges related to goodwill and intangible assets; divestiture (1) or acquisition gain or losses and related costs; the JDE coffee business transactions (2) gain and net incremental costs; the operating results of divestitures (1); the historical global coffee business operating results (2); and equity method investment earnings historically reported within operating income (3). The company also evaluates growth in the company’s Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income on a constant currency basis.
  • “Adjusted EPS” is defined as diluted EPS attributable to Mondelēz International from continuing operations excluding the impacts of Spin-Off Costs; the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program; the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program; the Integration Program and other acquisition integration costs; the Venezuela remeasurement and deconsolidation losses and historical operating results; losses on debt extinguishment and related expenses; impairment charges related to goodwill and intangible assets; gains or losses on interest rate swaps no longer designated as accounting cash flow hedges due to changed financing and hedging plans; divestiture (1) or acquisition gain or losses and related costs; the JDE coffee business transactions (2) gain, transaction hedging gains or losses and net incremental costs; gain on the equity method investment exchange; and net earnings from divestitures (1). In addition, the company has adjusted its equity method investment earnings for its proportionate share of unusual or infrequent items, such as acquisition and divestiture-related costs and restructuring program costs, recorded by the company’s JDE and Keurig equity method investees. The company also evaluates growth in the company’s Adjusted EPS on a constant currency basis.
  • “Free Cash Flow excluding items” is defined as Free Cash Flow (net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures) excluding cash payments associated with accrued interest and other related fees due to the company’s completion of a $2.5 billion cash tender offer on March 20, 2015.

(1)Divestitures include businesses under sale agreements for which the company has cleared significant sale-related conditions such that the pending sale is probable as of the end of the reporting period and exits of major product lines under a sale or licensing agreement. See (2) below.
(2)In connection with the JDE coffee business transactions that closed on July 2, 2015, because the company exchanged its coffee interests for similarly-sized coffee interests in JDE at the time of the transaction, the company has deconsolidated and not included its historical global coffee business results within divestitures in its non-GAAP financial measures. The company continues to have an ongoing interest in the coffee business. Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, the company has included the after-tax earnings of JDE, Keurig and of its historical coffee business results within continuing results of operations. For Adjusted EPS, the company has included these earnings in equity method investment earnings and has deconsolidated its historical coffee business results from Organic Net Revenue, Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Operating Income to facilitate comparisons of past and future coffee operating results.
(3)Historically, the company has recorded income from equity method investments within its operating income as these investments operated as extensions of the company’s base business. Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, the company began to record the earnings from its equity method investments in after-tax equity method investment earnings outside of operating income following the deconsolidation of its coffee business. In periods prior to July 2, 2015, the company has reclassified the equity method earnings from Adjusted Operating Income to after-tax equity method investment earnings within Adjusted EPS to be consistent with the deconsolidation of its coffee business results on July 2 and in order to evaluate its operating results on a consistent basis.

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 months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

SEGMENT OPERATING INCOME
The company 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), general corporate expenses (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses), amortization of intangibles, gains and losses on divestitures or acquisitions, gain on the JDE coffee business transactions, loss on the deconsolidation of Venezuela and acquisition-related costs (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses) in all periods presented. The company excludes these items from segment operating income in order to provide better transparency of its segment operating results. Furthermore, the company centrally manages interest and other expense, net. Accordingly, the company does not present these items by segment because they are excluded from the segment profitability measure that management reviews.

ITEMS IMPACTING COMPARABILITY OF OPERATING RESULTS
The following information is provided to give qualitative and quantitative information related to items impacting comparability of operating results. The company determines which items to consider as “items impacting comparability” based on how management views the company’s business; makes financial, operating and planning decisions; and evaluates the company’s ongoing performance. In addition, the company discloses the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on the company’s financial results in order to reflect results on a constant currency basis.

Divestitures
On April 23, 2015, the company completed the divestiture of its 50 percent interest in a Japanese coffee joint venture to its joint venture partner, which generated cash proceeds of 27 billion Japanese yen ($225 million as of April 23, 2015) and a pre-tax gain of $13 million (after-tax loss of $9 million). The company contributed to Jacobs Douwe Egberts (“JDE”) the net cash proceeds from the sale of the interest. The company did not divest any businesses during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Acquisitions and acquisition-related costs
On July 15, 2015, the company acquired an 80 percent interest in a biscuit operation in Vietnam, which is now a subsidiary within its Asia Pacific segment. The acquisition added incremental net revenues, on a constant currency basis, of $38 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

On February 16, 2015, the company also acquired a U.S. snacking company (Enjoy Life Foods) within its North America segment. The acquisition added incremental net revenues of $5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

The company recorded acquisition-related costs of $1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2015. These acquisition-related costs were recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses.

Accounting calendar change
In connection with moving toward a common consolidation date across the company, in the first quarter of 2015, the company changed the consolidation date for the North America segment from the last Saturday of each period to the last calendar day of each period. As a result of this change, each of the company’s operating subsidiaries now reports results as of the last calendar day of the period. The change had a favorable impact on net revenues of $38 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Acquisition integration costs
Within the company’s Asia Pacific segment, in connection with the July 2015 acquisition of a biscuit operation in Vietnam, the company recorded integration costs of $4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The company recorded these acquisition integration costs in selling, general and administrative expenses.

2012-2014 Restructuring Program
In 2012, the company’s Board of Directors approved $1.5 billion of restructuring and related implementation costs (“2012-2014 Restructuring Program”) reflecting primarily severance, asset disposals and other manufacturing-related one-time costs. The primary objective of the restructuring and implementation activities was to ensure that Mondelēz International and Kraft Foods Group were each set up to operate efficiently and execute on their respective business strategies upon separation in the Spin-Off and in the future. Of the $1.5 billion of 2012-2014 Restructuring Program costs, the company retained approximately $925 million and Kraft Foods Group retained the balance of the program. Through the end of 2014, the company incurred total restructuring and related implementation charges of $899 million, and completed incurring planned charges on the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program. The company recorded reversals to the restructuring charges of $2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015 related to accruals no longer required. These charges were related to asset write-downs (including accelerated depreciation and asset impairments), severance and other related costs.

Venezuela remeasurement and deconsolidation losses
Effective as of the close of the 2015 fiscal year, the company concluded that it no longer met the accounting criteria for consolidation of its Venezuela subsidiaries due to a loss of control over its Venezuelan operations and an other-than-temporary lack of currency exchangeability. As of the close of the 2015 fiscal year, the company deconsolidated and changed to the cost method of accounting for its Venezuelan operations. The company recorded a $778 million pre-tax loss on December 31, 2015 as it reduced the value of its cost method investment in Venezuela and all Venezuelan receivables held by its other subsidiaries to realizable fair value, resulting in full impairment. The recorded loss also included historical cumulative translation adjustments related to the company’s Venezuelan operations that the company had previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive losses within equity.

Beginning in 2016, the company no longer includes net revenues, earnings or net assets of its Venezuelan subsidiaries within its consolidated financial statements. Under the cost method of accounting, earnings are only recognized to the extent cash is received. Given the current and ongoing difficult economic, regulatory and business environment in Venezuela, there continues to be significant uncertainty related to the company’s operations in Venezuela, and the company expects these conditions will continue for the foreseeable future. The company will monitor the extent of its ability to control its Venezuelan operations and the liquidity and availability of U.S. dollars at different rates, as the current situation in Venezuela may change over time and lead to consolidation at a future date.

The company recorded no earnings or other financial results from its Venezuelan subsidiaries during the three months ended March 31, 2016. For three months ended March 31, 2015, the operating results of its Venezuela operations were included in the company’s condensed consolidated statements of earnings. During this time, the company recognized an $11 million currency-related remeasurement loss resulting from a devaluation of the Venezuela bolivar exchange rates the company historically used to source U.S. dollars for purchases of imported raw materials, packaging and other goods and services.

Reclassification of historical Venezuela net revenues, operating income and net earnings
The company removed its historical operating results for its Venezuelan subsidiaries from its historical Organic Net Revenue, Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted EPS to facilitate comparisons of past and future operating results and net earnings.

Loss on debt extinguishment and related costs
On March 20, 2015, the company completed a cash tender offer and retired $2.5 billion of its outstanding high coupon long-term debt. The company recorded, within interest and other expense, net, a pre-tax loss on debt extinguishment and related expenses of $713 million during the three months ended March 31, 2015, for the amount paid in excess of the carrying value of the debt and from recognizing in earnings the related unamortized discounts, deferred financing costs and deferred cash flow hedges.

2014-2018 Restructuring Program
On May 6, 2014, the company’s Board of Directors approved a $3.5 billion restructuring program, comprised of approximately $2.5 billion in cash costs and $1 billion in non-cash costs (“2014-2018 Restructuring Program”), and up to $2.2 billion of capital expenditures. The primary objective of the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program is to reduce the company’s operating cost structure in both supply chain and overhead costs. The program is intended primarily to cover severance as well as asset disposals and other manufacturing-related one-time costs. The company expects to incur the majority of the program’s charges in 2016 and to complete the program by year-end 2018.

Restructuring costs
The company recorded restructuring charges of $139 million in the three months ended March 31, 2016 and $163 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015 within asset impairment and exit costs. These charges were for asset write-downs (including accelerated depreciation and asset impairments), severance and other related costs.

Implementation costs
Implementation costs are directly attributable to restructuring activities; however, they do not qualify for special accounting treatment as exit or disposal activities. The company recorded implementation costs of $98 million in the three months ended March 31, 2016 and $61 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015. These costs primarily relate to reorganizing the company’s operations and facilities in connection with its supply chain reinvention program and other identified productivity and cost saving initiatives. The costs include incremental expenses related to the closure of facilities, costs to terminate certain contracts and the simplification of the company’s information systems. The company recorded these costs within cost of sales and general corporate expense within selling, general and administrative expenses.

JDE coffee business transactions
On July 2, 2015, the company completed transactions to combine the company’s wholly owned coffee businesses (including the company’s coffee portfolio in France) with those of D.E Master Blenders 1753 B.V. (“DEMB”) to create a new company, JDE. Following the exchange of a portion of the company’s investment in JDE for an interest in Keurig Green Mountain Inc. (“Keurig”) in March 2016, the company now holds a 26.5% equity interest in JDE. The remaining 73.5% interest in JDE is held by a subsidiary of Acorn Holdings B.V., (“AHBV”, owner of DEMB prior to July 2, 2015). In connection with the contribution of the company’s global coffee businesses to JDE, the company recorded a pre-tax gain of $6.8 billion (or $6.6 billion after-taxes) in the third quarter of 2015. The company also recorded approximately $1.0 billion of net gains related to hedging the expected cash proceeds from the transaction as described further below.

The consideration the company received consisted of €3.8 billion of cash ($4.2 billion as of July 2, 2015), a 43.5% equity interest in JDE (prior to the decrease in ownership due to the Keurig transaction) and $794 million in receivables (related to sales price adjustments and tax formation cost payments). During the third quarter of 2015, the company also recorded $283 million of cash and receivables related to the reimbursement of costs that the company incurred in separating its coffee businesses. The cash and equity consideration the company received at closing reflects that the company retained its interest in a Korea-based joint venture, Dongsuh Foods Corporation. During the second quarter of 2015, the company also completed the sale of its interest in a Japanese coffee joint venture, Ajinomoto General Foods, Inc. (“AGF”). In lieu of contributing its interest in the AGF joint venture to JDE, the company contributed the net cash proceeds from the sale, and the transaction did not change the consideration received for the company’s global coffee businesses.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, the company and JDE concluded negotiations of a sales price adjustment and completed the valuation of the company’s investment in JDE. Primarily related to the negotiated resolution of the sales price adjustment in the fourth quarter, the company recorded a $313 million reduction in the pre-tax gain on the coffee transaction, reducing the $7.1 billion estimated gain in the third quarter to the $6.8 billion final gain for 2015. As part of the company’s sales price negotiations, the company retained the right to collect future cash payments if certain estimated pension liabilities come in over an agreed amount in the future. As such, the company may recognize additional income related to this negotiated term in the future.

In connection with the expected receipt of cash in euros at the time of closing, the company entered into a number of consecutive currency exchange forward contracts in 2014 and 2015 to lock in an equivalent expected value in U.S. dollars as of the date the coffee business transactions were first announced in May 2014. Cumulatively, the company realized aggregate net gains and received cash of approximately $1.0 billion on these hedging contracts that increased the cash the company received in connection with the coffee business transactions, from $4.2 billion in cash consideration received to $5.2 billion. In connection with these currency contracts, the company recognized a net gain of $551 million in in the three months ended March 31, 2015 within interest and other expense, net.

The company also incurred incremental expenses related to readying its coffee businesses for the transactions that totaled $28 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015. These expenses were recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses of primarily the company’s Europe and EEMEA segments and within general corporate expenses.

Gain on equity method investment exchange
On March 3, 2016, a subsidiary of AHBV completed the $13.9 billion acquisition of all of the outstanding common stock of Keurig through a merger transaction. On March 7, 2016, the company exchanged with a subsidiary of AHBV a portion of the company’s equity interest in JDE with a carrying value of €1.7 billion (approximately $2.0 billion as of March 7, 2016) for an interest in Keurig with a fair value of $2.0 billion based on the merger consideration per share for Keurig. The company recorded the difference between the fair value of Keurig and its basis in JDE shares as a $43 million gain on equity method investment exchange in March 2016. Following the exchange, the company’s ownership interest in JDE is 26.5% and its interest in Keurig is 24.2%. The company accounts for its investments in JDE and Keurig under the equity method and recognizes its share of their earnings within equity method investment earnings and its share of their dividends within the company’s cash flows.

Reclassification of historical coffee business net revenues, operating income and net earnings
The company removed its historical coffee business operating results from its historical Organic Net Revenue, Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Operating Income and reclassified historical coffee business after-tax earnings to equity method investment earnings to facilitate comparisons of past and future operating results and net earnings.

Reclassification of equity method investment earnings
Historically, the company recorded income from equity method investments within operating income as these investments operated as extensions of its base business. Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, to align with the accounting for JDE earnings, the company began reclassifying the earnings from its equity method investments from operating income to after-tax equity method investment earnings outside of segment operating income. For the company’s historical Adjusted Operating Income results, the company has reclassified the equity method investment earnings from Adjusted Operating Income to equity method investment earnings in all historical periods presented.

Equity method investee adjustments
The company adjusts its equity method investment earnings for its proportionate share of unusual or infrequent items, such as acquisition and divestiture-related costs and restructuring program costs, recorded by the company’s JDE and Keurig equity method investees.

Loss related to interest rate swaps
The company recognized pre-tax losses of $97 million in the three months ended March 31, 2016, and $34 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015, within interest and other expense, net related to certain U.S. dollar interest rate swaps that the company no longer designated as accounting cash flow hedges due to a change in financing and hedging plans.

Constant currency
Management evaluates the operating performance of the company and its international subsidiaries on a constant currency basis. The company determines its constant currency operating results by dividing or multiplying, as appropriate, the current period local currency operating results by the currency exchange rates used to translate the company’s financial statements in the comparable prior year period to determine what the current period U.S. dollar operating results would have been if the currency exchange rate had not changed from the comparable prior year period.
