Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

In advance of the Barclays Back-to-School Consumer Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, PepsiCo, Inc. ("PepsiCo") today stated that, consistent with its previous guidance for fiscal 2014, PepsiCo expects 8 percent core constant currency EPS growth in fiscal 2014 versus its fiscal 2013 core EPS of $4.37. Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, PepsiCo currently expects that foreign exchange translation will have an unfavorable impact of approximately 4 percentage points on its full-year core EPS growth in 2014.1

Excluding the impact of structural changes and foreign exchange translation, organic revenue in 2014 is expected to grow mid-single digits versus 2013, consistent with PepsiCo's long-term target. Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, PepsiCo currently expects foreign exchange translation to have an unfavorable impact of approximately 3 percentage points on its full-year net revenue growth in 2014.

As previously announced, Al Carey, Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo Americas Beverages, and Tom Greco, President of Frito-Lay North America, will present at the Barclays Back-to-School Consumer Conference on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at approximately 9:00 a.m. EDT. A live audio webcast and replay of the presentation, including accompanying slides, will be accessible through PepsiCo's website at www.pepsico.com, in the "Investors" section under "Events and Presentations."

Glossary

Acquisitions and divestitures: All merger and acquisition activity, including the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and changes in ownership or control in consolidated subsidiaries and nonconsolidated equity investees.

Constant currency: Financial results assuming constant foreign currency exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. In order to compute our constant currency results, we multiply or divide, as appropriate, our current year U.S. dollar results by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then multiply or divide, as appropriate, those amounts by the prior year average foreign exchange rates.

Core: Core results are non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain items from our historical results. In 2014, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses and restructuring and impairment charges. In 2013, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges in connection with our acquisition of Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods OJSC (WBD), restructuring and impairment charges, a charge related to the 2013 Venezuela currency devaluation and a tax benefit. See "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information" for additional information.

Mark-to-market gain or loss or net impact: Change in market value for commodity contracts that we purchase to mitigate the volatility in costs of energy and raw materials that we consume. The market value is determined based on average prices on national exchanges and recently reported transactions in the marketplace.

Organic: A measure that adjusts for impacts of acquisitions, divestitures and other structural changes, and in the case of organic revenue, foreign exchange translation. In excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, we assume constant foreign exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. See the definition of "Constant currency" for additional information.

Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information (unaudited)

Core results, core constant currency results and organic results are non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude certain items noted below. These measures are not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). However, we believe investors should consider these measures as they are more indicative of our ongoing performance and reflect how management evaluates our operational results and trends. These measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for GAAP reporting measures.

Commodity mark-to-market net impact

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we recognized $72 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. We centrally manage commodity derivatives on behalf of our divisions. These commodity derivatives include agricultural products, energy and metals. Certain of these commodity derivatives do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment and are marked to market with the resulting gains and losses recognized in corporate unallocated expenses, as either cost of sales or selling, general and administrative expenses, depending on the underlying commodity. These gains and losses are subsequently reflected in division results when the divisions recognize the cost of the underlying commodity in operating profit.

Merger and integration charges

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we incurred merger and integration charges of $10 million related to our acquisition of WBD recorded in the Europe segment.

Restructuring and impairment charges

2014 Multi-Year Productivity Plan

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we incurred restructuring and impairment charges of $53 million in conjunction with the multi-year productivity plan we publicly announced on February 13, 2014 (2014 Productivity Plan), including $11 million recorded in the Frito-Lay North America (FLNA) segment, $3 million recorded in the Quaker Foods North America (QFNA) segment, $5 million recorded in the Latin America Foods (LAF) segment, $10 million recorded in the PepsiCo Americas Beverages (PAB) segment, $10 million recorded in the Europe segment, $1 million recorded in the Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA) segment and $13 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses. The 2014 Productivity Plan includes the next generation of productivity initiatives that we believe will strengthen our food, snack and beverage businesses by accelerating our investment in manufacturing automation; further optimizing our global manufacturing footprint, including closing certain manufacturing facilities; re-engineering our go-to-market systems in developed markets; expanding shared services; and implementing simplified organization structures to drive efficiency.

2012 Multi-Year Productivity Plan

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we incurred restructuring and impairment charges of $110 million in conjunction with the multi-year productivity plan we publicly announced on February 9, 2012 (2012 Productivity Plan), including $8 million recorded in the FLNA segment, $1 million recorded in the QFNA segment, $7 million recorded in the LAF segment, $21 million recorded in


the PAB segment, $50 million recorded in the Europe segment, $25 million recorded in the AMEA segment and income of $2 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses, representing adjustments of previously recorded amounts. The 2012 Productivity Plan includes actions in every aspect of our business that we believe will strengthen our complementary food, snack and beverage businesses by leveraging new technologies and processes across PepsiCo's operations, go-to-market and information systems; heightening the focus on best practice sharing across the globe; consolidating manufacturing, warehouse and sales facilities; and implementing simplified organization structures, with wider spans of control and fewer layers of management.

Venezuela currency devaluation

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we recorded a $111 million net charge related to the devaluation of the bolivar for our Venezuelan businesses. $124 million of this charge was recorded in corporate unallocated expenses, with the balance (equity income of $13 million) recorded in the PAB segment.

Tax benefits

In the year ended December 28, 2013, we recognized a non-cash tax benefit of $209 million associated with our agreement with the IRS resolving all open matters related to the audits for taxable years 2003 through 2009, which reduced our reserve for uncertain tax positions for the tax years 2003 through 2012.

2014 guidance and long-term targets

Our 2014 core constant currency EPS growth guidance excludes the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses and restructuring and impairment charges. Our 2014 organic revenue growth guidance and our long-term organic revenue growth target exclude the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and other structural changes. In addition, our 2014 organic revenue growth guidance, our 2014 core constant currency EPS growth guidance and our long-term organic revenue growth target exclude the impact of foreign exchange. We are not able to reconcile our full-year projected 2014 core constant currency EPS growth to our full-year projected 2014 reported EPS growth because we are unable to predict the 2014 impact of foreign exchange or the mark-to-market net impact on commodity hedges due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates and commodity prices. We are also unable to reconcile our full-year projected 2014 organic revenue growth to our full-year projected 2014 reported net revenue growth or our long-term organic revenue growth to our long-term reported net revenue growth because we are unable to predict the 2014 and long-term impacts of foreign exchange due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures.
