*    Non-GAAP financial measures.  See the tables herein for important information regarding these measures and a 

 full reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

As detailed above, first quarter 2015 reported net sales decreased by 5.0 percent to $3.6 billion, primarily due to the effect of currency translation.  Currency-neutral comparable net sales decreased by 0.3 percent over the same period; this result included growth in each of the international regions.  First quarter 2015 reported operating profit was $384 million, a decline of 37.5 percent; this decrease was driven primarily by the impact that asset returns and changes in interest rates had on pension plans.  The decline in currency-neutral comparable operating profit was largely the result of slightly lower net sales.

Reported earnings for the first quarter of 2015 were $227 million, or $0.64 per share, a decrease of 43 percent from the $1.12 per share reported in the first quarter of last year.  This quarter's reported earnings per share included negative impacts from mark-to-market of $0.13 per share and costs associated with the Project K efficiency and effectiveness program of $0.13 per share.  In addition, reported results included $0.01 per share of integration costs related to the acquisition of Pringles and Bisco Misr and $0.07 of other costs.  Excluding these items, comparable first quarter 2015 earnings were $0.98 per share, greater than the company's expectations.  This result included a negative impact of $0.06 per share from currency translation; comparable earnings per share excluding the impact of currencies would have been $1.04 per share.

"We were pleased to report improved sales trends in the first quarter.  In fact, our results exceeded our expectations and we are on-track for the year," said John Bryant , Kellogg Company's chairman and chief executive officer.  "We've made great progress with Project K and are reinvesting to drive profitable sales growth."

North America

Net sales posted by Kellogg North America were $2.4 billion in the first quarter, a reported decrease of 3.7 percent; currency-neutral comparable net sales decreased by 2.8 percent.  The U.S. Morning Foods segment posted a currency-neutral comparable net sales decline of 2.9 percent, which included improved trends in the Cereal business.  Currency-neutral comparable net sales in the U.S. Snacks segment decreased by 1.1 percent, also reflecting an improvement in sales trends.  The U.S. Specialty Channels segment posted a 2.5 percent decline in currency-neutral comparable net sales in the quarter due to a discrete item.  The North America Other segment, which is now composed of the U.S. Frozen Foods, Kashi, and Canadian businesses, posted a 6.1 percent decrease in currency-neutral comparable net sales.  Reported operating profit in North America decreased by 9.9 percent; currency-neutral comparable operating profit declined by 8.0 percent, largely as the result of lower sales.

International

Reported net sales decreased by 13.8 percent in Europe in the quarter; currency-neutral comparable net sales increased by 1.0 percent including double-digit currency-neutral comparable net sales growth for the Pringles business.  In Latin America, reported net sales increased by 6.3 percent; currency-neutral comparable net sales increased by 15.7 percent, including broad-based growth across the region.  Reported net sales in Asia Pacific decreased by 5.3 percent; currency-neutral comparable net sales increased by 4.0 percent due to good rates of growth in the Asian businesses.

Interest and Tax

Kellogg's interest expense was $54 million in the first quarter.  The comparable effective tax rate* in the first quarter of 2015 was 25.4 percent, lower than last year due to certain discrete items.

Cash flow

Cash flow,* a non-GAAP measure defined as cash from operating activities less capital expenditures, was $12 million for the quarter.  This year-over-year decline was primarily due to earnings results, the timing of an interest payment, and increased cash costs associated with Project K.  The company continues to expect that cash flow for the full year will be approximately $1.0 billion.  Kellogg repurchased $285 million of shares during the first quarter.

Kellogg Reaffirms Full-Year Currency-Neutral Comparable 2015 Guidance

The company reaffirmed previous guidance for currency-neutral comparable net sales, operating profit, and earnings per share in 2015; the company also reaffirmed guidance for full-year cash flow.  Currency-neutral comparable net sales are expected to remain approximately unchanged year-over-year.  Kellogg expects full-year 2015 currency-neutral comparable operating profit to decrease at a rate between two and four percent.  Full-year 2015 currency-neutral comparable earnings per share are anticipated to be in a range between two percent lower and approximately unchanged.  The estimates for currency-neutral comparable operating profit and currency-neutral comparable earnings per share include a negative impact of between three and four percentage points from the rebasing of incentive compensation for 2015.  Guidance for both operating profit and earnings per share excludes the impact of mark-to-market adjustments, 2014's 53rd week, integration costs, costs related to Project K, acquisitions, dispositions, foreign-currency translation, and other items that could affect comparability.  Cash flow is expected to be approximately $1.0 billion, which includes the cash required by Project K.

Conference Call / Webcast

Kellogg will host a conference call to discuss these results on Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 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 (855) 209-8258 in the U.S., and (412) 542-4104 outside of the U.S.  Members of the media and the public are invited to attend in a listen-only mode.  Information regarding the rebroadcast is available at http://investor.kelloggs.com.

(a)

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expense.  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 2014 and 2013. The amounts capitalized at the end of 2014 and 2013 have been recognized in the first quarter of 2015 and 2014, respectively. 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. 

(b)

Costs incurred related primarily to execution of Project K, a 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.   

(c)

Includes impact of integration costs associated with the Bisco Misr and Pringles acquisitions.

(d)

Includes impact of Bisco Misr acquisition during the first quarter of 2015 and the divestiture of Loma Linda in 2014.

Comparable net sales growth and comparable operating profit growth are non-GAAP measures which are reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.  We believe the use of such non-GAAP measures provides increased transparency and assists in understanding our comparable operating performance.  

(f)

Currency-Neutral Comparable Net Sales growth and Currency Neutral Comparable Operating Profit growth are non-GAAP measures which are reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.  We believe the use of such non-GAAP measures provides increased transparency and assists in understanding our comparable operating performance.

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expense.  Actuarial

The amounts capitalized at the end of 2014 and 2013 have been recognized in the first quarter of 2015 and 2014, respectively. 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.
