Today, at the Goldman Sachs Consumer Products Symposium in New York City, PepsiCo, Inc. (PepsiCo or we) will reiterate that it expects core constant currency earnings per share to decrease by 5 percent in 2012 from its fiscal 2011 core earnings per share of $4.40. Based on the current foreign exchange market consensus, foreign exchange translation would have an unfavorable impact of approximately two percentage points on PepsiCos full year core EPS performance in 2012.
PepsiCo will also reiterate that it is targeting nearly $8 billion in cash flow from operating activities and more than $6 billion in management operating cash flow (excluding certain items) in 2012 and that it anticipates more than $3 billion in share repurchases for 2012, and expects to pay $3.3 billion in dividends for 2012.
PepsiCo will also reiterate its long-term target of mid-single-digit constant currency net revenue growth and that it is targeting long-term high-single-digit core constant currency EPS growth after a transition year in 2012.
Please refer to the glossary for more information about PepsiCos full-year fiscal 2012 core constant currency EPS guidance and long-term constant currency net revenue and core constant currency EPS growth targets.

Core: Core results are non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain items from our historical results. In 2011, core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, restructuring charges, as well as merger and integration costs and certain inventory fair value adjustments in connection with our acquisitions of The Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc. (PBG), PepsiAmericas, Inc. (PAS) and Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods OJSC (WBD). In addition, full-year 2011 core results exclude an extra week of results. With respect to our 2012 and longer-term guidance, our core results exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges, restructuring and impairment charges, and the loss on the Tingyi transaction. For more details and reconciliations of our 2011 core results and 2012 core and core constant currency guidance and long-term growth targets, see Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information below.
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.
Management operating cash flow: Net cash provided by operating activities less capital spending plus sales of property, plant and equipment. See Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information below for a reconciliation of this measure to the most directly comparable financial measure in accordance with GAAP (operating cash flow).
Management operating cash flow, excluding certain items: Management operating cash flow, excluding: (1) discretionary pension and retiree medical contributions, (2) restructuring payments, (3) capital investments related to the bottling integration, (4) operating cash payments related to the loss on the Tingyi transaction, and (5) the tax impacts associated with each of these items, as applicable. This non-GAAP financial measure is our primary measure used to monitor cash flow performance. See Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information below for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure in accordance with GAAP (operating cash flow).
Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information
Core results and core constant currency results are non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude certain items noted below. However, we believe investors should consider these measures as they are more indicative of our ongoing performance and with how management evaluates our operational results and trends.
53rd week impact
In 2011, we had an additional week of results (53rd week). Our fiscal year ends on the last Saturday of each December, resulting in an additional week of results every five or six years. The 53rd week increased net revenue by $623 million and operating profit by $109 million in the year ended December 31, 2011.
Commodity mark-to-market net impact
In the year ended December 31, 2011, we recognized $102 million of mark-to-market net losses on commodity hedges in corporate unallocated expenses. We centrally manage commodity derivatives on behalf of our divisions. 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. These gains and losses are subsequently reflected in division results when the divisions take delivery of the underlying commodity.
Merger and integration charges
In the year ended December 31, 2011, we incurred merger and integration charges of $329 million related to our acquisitions of PBG, PAS and WBD, including $112 million recorded in the PAB segment, $123 million recorded in the Europe segment, $78 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses and $16 million recorded in interest expense. These charges also include closing costs and advisory fees related to our acquisition of WBD.
In the year ended December 31, 2011, we incurred charges of $383 million in conjunction with our multi-year productivity plan (Productivity Plan), including $76 million recorded in the FLNA segment, $18 million recorded in the QFNA segment, $48 million recorded in the LAF segment, $81 million recorded in the PAB segment, $77 million recorded in the Europe segment, $9 million recorded in the AMEA segment and $74 million recorded in corporate unallocated expenses. The 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 PepsiCos 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.
Inventory fair value adjustments
In the year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded $46 million of incremental costs in cost of sales related to fair value adjustments to the acquired inventory included in WBDs balance sheet at the acquisition date and hedging contracts included in PBGs and PASs balance sheets at the acquisition date.
Management operating cash flow (excluding certain items)
Additionally, management operating cash flow (excluding certain items) is the primary measure management uses to monitor cash flow performance. This is not a measure defined by GAAP. Since net capital spending is essential to our product innovation initiatives and maintaining our operational capabilities, we believe that it is a recurring and necessary use of cash. As such, we believe investors should also consider net capital spending when evaluating our cash from operating activities. Additionally, we consider certain other items (included in the Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities Reconciliation table) in evaluating management operating cash flow which we believe investors should consider in evaluating our management operating cash flow results.
2012 guidance and long-term targets
Our 2012 full-year core constant currency EPS guidance and our long-term core constant currency EPS growth targets exclude the commodity mark-to-market net impact included in corporate unallocated expenses, merger and integration charges, restructuring and impairment charges, and the loss on the Tingyi transaction. In addition, our 2012 full-year core constant currency EPS guidance and our long-term constant currency net revenue and core constant currency EPS growth targets exclude the impact of foreign exchange. We are not able to reconcile our full-year projected 2012 core constant currency EPS growth or our long-term core constant currency EPS growth targets to our full-year projected 2012 and long-term reported results because we are unable to predict the 2012 and long-term 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. In addition, we are unable to reconcile our long-term constant currency net revenue growth target to our long-term reported net revenue growth target because we are unable to predict the long-term impact of foreign exchange due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we are unable to provide reconciliations of these measures.
