Kellogg Company Reports Third-Quarter 2014 Results; Reiterates Full-Year, Currency-Neutral Guidance

October 30,2014

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) today announced third-quarter results for operating profit and earnings per share that were slightly greater than the company's expectations.  Third-quarter 2014 reported net sales decreased by 2.1 percent to $3.6 billion.  Internal net sales,* which exclude the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs, decreased by 1.7 percent over the same period.  Third-quarter 2014 operating profit was $365 million, a reported decrease of 27.5 percent; this decrease was driven primarily by costs associated with Project K, the company's four-year efficiency and effectiveness program, the impact of mark-to-market accounting, and lower sales.  Underlying internal operating profit,* which excludes the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, dispositions, mark-to-market accounting, integration costs, and costs associated with Project K, decreased by 1.8 percent.   The decline in underlying internal operating profit was largely the result of lower sales.

Reported earnings for the third quarter 2014 were $224 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, a decrease of 31 percent from the $0.90 per diluted share reported in the third quarter of last year.  This quarter's reported earnings per share included an impact from mark-to-market of $0.11 per share, $0.19 per share of costs associated with Project K, and approximately $0.02 per share of integration costs related to the acquisition of Pringles.  Excluding these items, comparable third quarter 2014 earnings* were $0.94 per share, slightly greater than anticipated by the company.

"We are pleased to have announced results for quarterly operating profit and earnings per share that were ahead of our expectations.  Our international business did well in the quarter, although we continued to face the challenges in developed regions and categories that we've seen all year," said John Bryant , Kellogg Company's chairman and chief executive officer.  "We have been working hard on our plans for 2015 and we have both good brand-building activities and new-product introductions planned for the first quarter, and the balance of the year.  We also continue to execute the largest restructuring program in our history, which will enable us to invest back in our business and drive sustainable growth."

North America

Net sales posted by Kellogg North America were $2.3 billion in the third quarter, a reported decrease of 4.2 percent; internal net sales decreased by 3.9 percent.  The U.S. Morning Foods segment posted an internal net sales decline of 4.7 percent.  Internal net sales in the U.S. Snacks segment decreased by 4.2 percent.  The U.S. Specialty Channels segment posted a 4.1 percent internal net sales decline in the quarter and the North America Other segment, which is comprised of the U.S. Frozen Foods and Canadian businesses, posted a 1.1 percent decrease in internal net sales.  Reported operating profit in North America decreased by 19.8 percent; underlying internal operating profit declined by 9.1 percent, as the result of lower sales.

International

Reported net sales decreased by 0.6 percent in Europe in the quarter; internal net sales also decreased by 0.6 percent.  In Latin America, reported net sales increased by 6.2 percent and internal net sales increased by 7.3 percent.  Reported net sales in Asia Pacific increased by 4.8 percent and internal net sales increased by 5.0 percent.

Interest and Tax

Kellogg's interest expense was $54 million in the third quarter.  The underlying tax rate* in the third quarter of 2014 was 28.5 percent.

Cash flow

Cash flow,* a non-GAAP measure defined as cash from operating activities less capital expenditures, was $822 million for the first three quarters of the year.  The company continues to anticipate that cash flow for the year will be at the low end of the range between $1 billion and $1.1 billion.

Year-to-date, Kellogg has repurchased $690 million of shares, far exceeding option proceeds of $151 million.  The company remains on-track with its share repurchase program for the full year.

* Internal sales growth, underlying internal operating profit growth, comparable earnings, underlying effective tax rate and cash flow are all non-GAAP financial measures. See the tables herein for important information regarding these measures and a full reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Kellogg Retains Currency-Neutral, Full-Year 2014 Guidance

The company reiterated its currency-neutral guidance for the full year of 2014.  Internal net sales are expected to decline by between one and two percent.  Underlying internal operating profit growth is expected to decline by between one and three percent.  Currency-neutral comparable earnings per share are expected to be in a range between a decline of one percent and an increase of one percent.  Integration costs associated with the acquisition of the Pringles business are still expected to be in a range between $0.07 and $0.09 per share.  Costs associated with Project K are still expected to be in a range between $0.60 and $0.65 per share.  As a result, earnings excluding the impact of mark-to-market accounting, integration costs, Project K and other items impacting comparability are anticipated to be between $3.81 and $3.89 per share.  This year's 53rd week is still expected to add approximately $0.07 per share to earnings and currency translation is now expected to have no impact on earnings.  As a result, the company expects a full-year earnings range including the impact of the 53rd week and currency translation of between $3.88 and $3.96 per share.

Conference Call / Webcast

Kellogg will host a conference call to discuss these results on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time.  The conference call and accompanying presentation slides will be broadcast live over the Internet at http://investor.kelloggs.com.  Analysts and institutional investors may participate in the Q&A session by dialing (877) 270-2148 in the U.S., and (412) 902-6510 outside of the U.S.  Members of the media and the public are invited to attend in a listen-only mode.  Rebroadcast information is available at http://investor.kelloggs.com.

(a)

Includes impact of integration costs associated with the Pringles acquisition.



(b)

Internal net sales growth for 2014 excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures, integration costs and impact of foreign currency translation.  Internal net sales growth is a non-GAAP financial measure which is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within these tables.



(c)

We measure the volume impact (tonnage) on revenues based on the stated weight of our product shipments.



(d)

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold.  Actuarial gains/losses for pension plans are recognized in the year they occur.  A portion of these mark-to-market adjustments were capitalized as inventoriable cost at the end of 2013 and 2012.  These amounts have been recognized in the first quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  During the third quarter of 2014, we remeasured the benefit obligation for an impacted other nonpension postretirement plan.  The remeasurement resulted in a mark-to-market loss of $7 million primarily due to a lower discount rate.  Mark-to-market adjustments for commodities reflect the changes in the fair value of contracts for the difference between contract and market prices for the underlying commodities.  The resulting gains/losses are recognized in the quarter they occur.



(e)

Costs incurred related primarily to the execution of Project K, a global four-year efficiency and effectiveness program. The focus of the program will be to strengthen existing businesses in core markets, increase growth in developing and emerging markets, and drive an increased level of value-added innovation.  The program is expected to provide a number of benefits, including an optimized supply chain infrastructure, the implementation of global business services, and a new global focus on categories.  The 2013 periods presented have been recast to exclude all restructuring and cost reduction activities from underlying and comparable results.  Previously, only costs associated with Project K were excluded from underlying and comparable results.



(f)

Underlying internal operating profit growth excludes the impact of foreign currency translation, pension plans and commodity contracts mark-to-market adjustments, costs related to restructuring and cost reduction activities, and if applicable, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs associated with the acquisition of Pringles.  We believe the use of this non-GAAP measure provides increased transparency and assists in understanding underlying operating performance.  This non-GAAP measure is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.

(a)

Includes impact of integration costs associated with the Pringles acquisition.



(b)

Internal net sales growth for 2014 excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures, integration costs and impact of foreign currency translation.  Internal net sales growth is a non-GAAP financial measure which is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within these tables.



(c)

We measure the volume impact (tonnage) on revenues based on the stated weight of our product shipments.



(d)

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold.  Actuarial gains/losses for pension plans are recognized in the year they occur.  A portion of these mark-to-market adjustments were capitalized as inventoriable cost at the end of 2013 and 2012.  These amounts have been recognized in the first quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  During the third quarter of 2014, we remeasured the benefit obligation for an impacted other nonpension postretirement plan.  The remeasurement resulted in a mark-to-market loss of $7 million primarily due to a lower discount rate.  Mark-to-market adjustments for commodities reflect the changes in the fair value of contracts for the difference between contract and market prices for the underlying commodities.  The resulting gains/losses are recognized in the quarter they occur.



(e)

Costs incurred related primarily to the execution of Project K, a global four-year efficiency and effectiveness program. The focus of the program will be to strengthen existing businesses in core markets, increase growth in developing and emerging markets, and drive an increased level of value-added innovation.  The program is expected to provide a number of benefits, including an optimized supply chain infrastructure, the implementation of global business services, and a new global focus on categories.  The 2013 periods presented have been recast to exclude all restructuring and cost reduction activities from underlying and comparable results.  Previously, only costs associated with Project K were excluded from underlying and comparable results.



(f)

Underlying internal operating profit growth excludes the impact of foreign currency translation, pension plans and commodity contracts mark-to-market adjustments, costs related to restructuring and cost reduction activities, and if applicable, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs associated with the acquisition of Pringles.  We believe the use of this non-GAAP measure provides increased transparency and assists in understanding underlying operating performance.  This non-GAAP measure is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.
