1 Please refer to “Forward Outlook” and “Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for additional information. WhiteWave provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis and does not reconcile guidance to GAAP as the company cannot predict certain elements which are included in reported GAAP results, including foreign exchange impacts, mark-to-market adjustments of hedging activities, and costs related to merger and acquisition activities that may have a significant impact to reported GAAP results.

Net sales for second quarter 2016 were $1.1 billion, a 14 percent increase from net sales of $924 million in second quarter 2015. These results were driven by strong organic growth in both the Americas and Europe segments, as well as contributions from acquisitions.

On a constant currency basis, net sales increased 14 percent in second quarter 2016, when compared to second quarter 2015. Excluding acquisitions, organic constant currency net sales increased 7 percent in second quarter 2016, when compared to second quarter 2015.

Reported operating income for second quarter 2016 increased 31 percent to $101 million compared to second quarter 2015, and on an adjusted basis increased 23 percent to $104 million, compared to $85 million in second quarter 2015. On a constant currency basis, adjusted operating income increased 26 percent in second quarter 2016 over the same period in 2015.

"We are pleased with the double-digit topline growth, continued strong margin expansion and robust earnings growth we generated in the second quarter and for the first half of 2016,” said Gregg Engles, chairman and chief executive officer. “In early July, we entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by Danone. This transaction represents an exciting next chapter of growth for WhiteWave as we bring together two companies with a shared mission of changing the way the world eats for the better.”

AMERICAS FOODS & BEVERAGES SEGMENT
WhiteWave’s Americas Foods & Beverages segment consists of four platforms: Plant-based Foods and Beverages, Fresh Foods, Premium Dairy, and Coffee Creamers and Beverages. In second quarter 2016, net sales for Americas Foods & Beverages were $898 million, an increase of 14 percent over second quarter 2015. Growth in the segment reflects strong organic sales growth and contributions from acquisitions. Excluding acquisitions and the impact of currency translations, organic constant currency net sales in the segment increased 6 percent in second quarter 2016 over second quarter 2015. The organic growth rate for second quarter 2016 increased 7.5 percent excluding the impact of Fresh Foods’ results, which began being included within the segment in 2016. Organic growth in the segment continues to be primarily volume driven.

Reported operating income for the Americas Foods & Beverages segment increased 19 percent in second quarter 2016, compared to the same period in 2015. On an adjusted constant currency basis, segment operating income increased 21 percent, with 70 basis points of operating margin expansion when compared to the prior year period. This increase was driven by continued scale leverage, favorable sales mix, supply chain investments and related efficiencies, and the profit contribution from completed acquisitions.

Plant-based Foods and Beverages
The Americas Plant-based Foods and Beverages platform includes Silk® beverages and yogurts, So Delicious® beverages, frozen desserts and yogurts, and Vega® nutritional protein powders and bars. Net sales for this platform increased 25 percent in second quarter 2016 compared to second quarter 2015. Sales were driven by the contribution of Vega, which was acquired on August 1, 2015, and organic growth.

Organic sales, which exclude Vega, increased mid-single digits on a percentage basis in second quarter 2016, driven by continued strong growth in beverages and yogurts, which was partially offset by softness in So Delicious frozen desserts due to temporary customer service disruptions in the quarter that impacted distribution levels. Nut-based beverages experienced high-single digit percentage growth, with plant-based yogurts growing over 20 percent in the quarter. Vega continued its strong growth plot in second quarter 2016, even while lapping prior period distribution increases. WhiteWave continues to maintain its leadership positions across all plant-based categories in which it participates.

“While our organic growth rate in U.S. plant-based was lower than high-single digits in the quarter due to the impact from the disruption in frozen desserts, we continue to see robust long-term growth opportunities for plant-based foods and beverages,” said Blaine McPeak, executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We have launched a completely new advertising campaign to further broaden consumer awareness of the benefits of plant-based and are very excited with new Silk branding and packaging we are rolling out in the third quarter. We also have several new innovative products and packaging formats in both Silk and Vega that we are introducing over the balance of the year.”

Fresh Foods
The Fresh Foods platform consists of the Earthbound Farm® brand, which includes organic salads, fruits and vegetables. While the platform’s frozen product offerings experienced strong growth in the quarter, net sales declined 2 percent in second quarter 2016 when compared to second quarter 2015, as tighter industry supplies of organic salad could not fully service demand and as the business continues to rebuild its distribution following SAP implementation-related disruptions during fourth quarter 2015.

A larger warehouse for this platform was completed and became operational at the end of second quarter 2016, and is expected to begin providing improved efficiencies over the second half of 2016. Management continues to expect ongoing operating improvements over the balance of the year and net sales growth in this platform for 2016, driven by strong sales growth in fourth quarter 2016.

Premium Dairy
The Premium Dairy platform includes Horizon Organic® milk and dairy products, macaroni and cheese, and snacks, along with Wallaby® organic yogurts and kefir beverages. Net sales for this platform increased 11 percent in second quarter 2016 compared to second quarter 2015. Increased sales were primarily driven by the inclusion of Wallaby, which was acquired on August 31, 2015, which continued its strong growth trend in the quarter and continues to exceed management’s original expectations.

Organic sales in this platform grew low-single digits as prior period price increases on Horizon milks were completely lapped during second quarter 2016 and conventional milk prices remained at historically low levels.

The recent innovation of Sir BananasTM bananamilks have performed well in test markets and are in the process of being rolled out nationwide. With a broad product portfolio that meets families’ needs for healthy and convenient kids’ meals and snacks, along with planned marketing campaigns, management believes this platform is well positioned for the back-to-school season.

Coffee Creamers and Beverages
The Coffee Creamers and Beverages platform includes coffee creamers and ready-to-drink beverages under the International Delight®, Dunkin Donuts®, Silk and So Delicious brands, as well as half-and-half dairy creamers under the LAND O LAKES® and Horizon Organic brands. Net sales for this platform increased 15 percent in second quarter 2016 compared to second quarter 2015. Organic sales grew in the mid-teens on a percentage basis in second quarter 2016, driven by strong performance across WhiteWave’s broad creamer portfolio, including flavored creamers, plant-based creamers and half-and-half creamers. With increased velocities and strong share performance, WhiteWave continues to grow ahead of the coffee creamers and whiteners categories in which it participates.

Recent innovations in this platform, which include Simply Pure®, an all-natural and simple ingredient creamer, and StokTM, a cold-brew iced coffee beverage available in multi-serve and single-serve formats across traditional retailers and convenience stores, have been performing well. International Delight also recently expanded its larger size offerings to further align with increasing consumer demand for larger package size formats. In addition, a new International Delight advertising campaign launched in early second quarter 2016 is delivering encouraging initial results.

EUROPE FOODS & BEVERAGES SEGMENT
The Europe Foods & Beverages segment consists of plant-based foods and beverages that are sold primarily under the Alpro® brand. Net sales in the segment increased 14 percent on a reported basis and 15 percent on a constant currency basis in second quarter 2016 compared to second quarter 2015. Sales growth was driven primarily by increased volumes behind continued strong growth in beverages and plant-based yogurts.

Reported operating income for the Europe Foods & Beverages segment increased 23 percent in second quarter 2016, compared to second quarter 2015. On a constant currency basis, segment operating income increased 38 percent in second quarter 2016, with over 250 basis points of operating margin expansion when compared to the prior year period, driven by continued scale leverage, favorable sales mix, increased internal production levels and other operating efficiencies.

“We are pleased with the strong second quarter results we achieved on the top and bottom line,” said Greg Christenson, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “We continue to expect strong performance over the second half of 2016 behind continued core growth, additional innovation, and our new branding and marketing campaigns. We continue to forecast increasing operating performance over the back half of the year and expect to deliver on our goals of high-single digit organic constant currency percentage sales growth and at least 75 basis points of constant currency operating margin expansion for 2016.”

OTHER ITEMS
Danone Merger Agreement
Danone S.A. and WhiteWave entered into a definitive merger agreement on July 6, 2016, under which Danone will acquire WhiteWave for $56.25 per share in an all-cash transaction, representing a total enterprise value of approximately $12.5 billion, including debt and other WhiteWave liabilities. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year, subject to the approval of WhiteWave’s shareholders, regulatory approvals and customary conditions.

IPP Acquisition
WhiteWave completed the acquisition of Innovation Packaging and Process, S.A. DE C.V. (“IPP”) on June 2, 2016, for a purchase price of approximately $18 million in cash. Founded in 2007 and based in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, IPP is an aseptic beverage manufacturer that produces a variety of products for WhiteWave and other parties. The acquisition supports WhiteWave’s growth initiatives in Latin America with internal production capacity.

FORWARD OUTLOOK
While the company expects the merger with Danone to be completed by the end of 2016, the following outlook assumes that WhiteWave remains an independent company through December 31, 2016.

The company provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis and does not reconcile guidance to GAAP as the company cannot predict certain elements which are included in reported GAAP results, including foreign exchange impacts, mark-to-market adjustments of hedging activities, and costs related to merger and acquisition activities that may have a significant impact to reported GAAP results.

WhiteWave continues to expect category and volume growth across its core portfolio and further topline growth in acquired businesses to drive strong net sales growth over the balance of 2016. Despite currency movements since the company previously provided its outlook having an increased negative impact to reported currency net sales growth rates, management continues to expect full year 2016 net sales growth to be 10.5 percent to 11.5 percent in reported currency and 11.0 percent to 12.0 percent on a constant currency basis. Management continues to forecast high single-digit organic net sales percentage growth on a constant currency basis for full year 2016.

The company continues to expect strong adjusted operating income growth during 2016 from the benefits of increased internal production capacity, cost reduction initiatives, further scale leverage, and increasing profit contributions from completed acquisitions while maintaining high levels of marketing investments. For full year 2016, management continues to expect total operating income percentage growth in the high-teens to twenty percent in reported currency and in the low twenties on a constant currency percentage growth basis. Management continues to target 75 basis points of constant currency operating margin expansion for full year 2016.

The company continues to support the ongoing operating investments of its China joint venture behind the development of a plant-based beverages business. Management continues to expect the amount of the company’s investment in 2016 to be between $10 million and $12 million on an after-tax basis, and approximately $0.06 dilutive to full year 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share. The timing and amount of actual investments made in 2016 may vary by quarter.

Reflecting the company’s second quarter 2016 results, management now expects constant currency adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.43 to $1.46 for full year 2016, excluding investments in the China joint venture. Due to changes in current foreign exchange rates since providing its previous outlook having a negative impact to reported currency results, management continues to expect adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.38 to $1.41 in reported currency for full year 2016, excluding investments in the China joint venture.

EXPLANATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
In addition to the results prepared in accordance with GAAP, we have presented certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted financial information for the periods presented, such as operating income, EBITDA, net income and diluted earnings per share. We present these non-GAAP measures in order to facilitate meaningful evaluation of our operating performance across periods. These adjustments eliminate certain costs and benefits, including corporate costs associated with equity awards granted to certain of our executive officers, employees and directors in conjunction with the company’s initial public offering in October 2012 (the “IPO Grants”); non-recurring transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions and other investments; SAP transition costs; non-cash income or expense related to mark-to-market adjustments on interest rate and commodity hedges and amortization related to foreign exchange contracts; costs incurred to manage, and losses incurred on our investment in the China joint venture; and with respect solely to the adjusted EBITDA calculation, other non-cash charges related to stock-based compensation expense. These adjustments are intended to provide greater transparency of underlying profit trends and to allow investors to evaluate our business on the same basis as our management, which uses these non-GAAP measures in making financial and operating decisions and evaluating the company’s performance. These adjustments are not necessarily indicative of what our actual financial performance would have been during the periods presented and should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the company’s results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further details regarding these adjustments are included in the tables below.

Basis of Presentation
Certain financial measures in this release are presented on a non-GAAP basis that includes results provided on a constant currency basis and on an adjusted basis.

Organic Results
Results presented on an organic basis for second quarter 2016 exclude the operating results of Wallaby acquired on August 31, 2015, the operating results of Vega acquired on August 1, 2015, the operating results of EIEIO acquired May 29, 2015 through May 31 2016, and the operating results of IPP acquired on June 2, 2016.

Constant Currency Results
The company determines its constant currency results by dividing or multiplying, as appropriate, the current period local currency results by the currency exchange rates used to translate the company’s financial results in the prior 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 period.

Adjusted Results
Segment financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2016 in the Americas Foods & Beverages segment are adjusted to exclude the expense related to the mark-to-market adjustment on commodity hedges, acquisition related non-recurring transaction and integration costs, and SAP transition costs.
