As of June 30, 2006, there were outstanding 212,728,672 of Common Stock, no par value, and the aggregate market value of the Common Stock (based upon the closing price of the stock on the New York Stock Exchange on June 30, 2006) held by non-affiliates was approximately $8,406,182,231. As of June 30, 2006, there were outstanding 64,788,480 shares of Class B Common Stock, no par value. Class B Common Stock carries 10 votes per share, is not traded on the exchanges, is restricted as to transfer or other disposition, and is convertible into Common Stock on a share-for-share basis.

PART I
 
Item 1.   Business
 
 
The Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company (the “Company” or “Wrigley”) is a Delaware corporation. From 1891 to 1903, the Company was operated as a partnership until its incorporation in Illinois as Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. in December 1903. In November 1910, the Company was reincorporated under West Virginia law as Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, and in October 1927, was reincorporated under the same name under Delaware law. Wrigley is a recognized leader in the confectionery field and the world’s largest manufacturer and marketer of chewing gum.
 
Wrigley products are sold in over 180 countries and, in the over 110 years since Wrigley introduced its first two products, Juicy Fruit® and Wrigley’s Spearmint®, its portfolio of products has grown to include dozens of innovative brands that provide consumers with a variety of benefits, including breath freshening and tooth whitening. The Company’s principal business remains manufacturing and marketing chewing gum and other confectionery products worldwide. All other businesses constitute less than 10% of its consolidated revenues, operating profit and identifiable assets. Financial information on segments, as defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, is set forth on pages 56 and 57 of the Company’s 2006 Annual Report under the caption “segment information”, which information is incorporated herein by reference.
 
 
In addition to internal product development, the Company has continued to enhance the portfolio of products it offers through the recent diversification of its business within the broader confectionery category. In 2004, the Company acquired certain confectionery businesses of the Joyco Group from Agrolimen, a privately-held Spanish conglomerate, and, in 2005, the Company acquired certain non-chocolate confectionery assets from Kraft Foods Global, Inc. On January 31, 2007, the Company acquired an 80 percent initial interest in A. Korkunov, a privately held premium chocolate company in Russia.
 
 
In 2006, chewing gum and other confectionery products were manufactured in four factories in the United States and fifteen factories in other countries. Two domestic wholly-owned associated companies, L.A. Dreyfus Company and Northwestern Flavors, LLC, manufactured gum base and processed flavorings and refined mint oil, respectively. In addition, four foreign facilities also manufacture gum base for the Company’s international production facilities and for third party gum product manufacturers. Two others produce gum base for their own use. In 2005, the Company announced plans to restructure its North American production network in order to maximize supply chain efficiencies. As a result, in late 2006 the Company closed its chewing gum plant in Chicago, Illinois and its L.A. Dreyfus gum base subsidiary in Edison, New Jersey, and transferred production to remaining facilities. Also, in April, 2006, the Company closed the facility located in Bridgend, Wales which was acquired in the transaction with Kraft Foods Global, Inc.
 
Raw materials such as sugar, corn syrup, flavoring oils, polyols and high-intensity sweeteners blended to make chewing gum are readily available in the open market. Other ingredients and necessary packaging materials are also available and purchased in the open market. Inventory requirements of the Company are not materially affected by seasonal or other factors.
 
 
The Company markets chewing gum and other confectionery products primarily through distributors, wholesalers, corporate chains and cooperative buying groups that distribute the product through retail outlets with consumer purchases at the retail level generated primarily through the Company’s advertisements on television as well as in newspapers and magazines. Additional direct customers are vending distributors, concessionaires and other established customers purchasing in wholesale quantities.

Customer orders are usually received electronically, by mail, telephone, facsimile or e-mail and are generally shipped by truck from factory warehouses or leased warehousing facilities. In general, the Company does not offer its customers extended payment terms. It is typical for the general customer of the wholesale trade to purchase chewing gum and other confectionery requirements at intervals of approximately ten days to two weeks to assure fresh stocks and good turnover. The Company believes these conditions are not materially different from those of its competitors. On a consolidated basis, sales are relatively consistent throughout the year.
 
In 2006, the Company’s ten largest revenue producing countries outside of the United States were, in alphabetical order: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, Spain, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
 
 
Innovation has been a key element of Wrigley’s success. The Company holds numerous patents and patent applications relating to packaging, manufacturing processes and product formulas, including approximately 200 material patents relating to packaging, chewing gum confection processing, product formula and sweetener encapsulation, primarily for sugar-free gum and continuous chewing gum manufacturing. Most of these patents expire in the countries in which they are registered at various times through the year 2021. In addition, trademarks are of material importance to the Company and are registered and maintained for all brands of the Company’s chewing gum and confectionery products on a worldwide basis as appropriate.
 
The Company has for many years maintained an active in-house research and development program, and has also contracted outside services for developing and improving Wrigley products, machinery and operations. In 2005, the Company opened its Global Innovation Center which is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the development of new products and the enhancement of our existing product lines. Information relating to the cost incurred by the Company for research and development in each of the last three fiscal years is set forth on page 42 of the Company’s 2006 Annual Report under the caption “Research and Development” and is incorporated herein by reference.
 
 
The confectionery business is an intensely competitive one as all of the Company’s brands compete for retail shelf space with other advertised and branded products. The Company competes in over 180 countries and territories. In most marketplaces, there are two or three major competitors and generally half a dozen or more other companies competing for a share of the confectionery business. In the chewing gum category, the Company is a worldwide leader, accounting for approximately 63% of the total chewing gum product unit sales sold in the United States alone, according to outside sources (i.e., Nielsen, IRI). The Company competes primarily with Cadbury Adams and Mars, on a global basis, and Lotte in Asia, Perfetti in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, and Hershey in North America.
 
The continued growth of alternative store formats, product and packaging innovations, technological advances, and new industry techniques have all added variables for companies in the confectionery industry to consider in order to remain competitive. In all areas in which the Company distributes its products, principal elements of competition are a combination of competitive profit margins to the trade, level of product quality, brand recognition, product benefit and a fair consumer price. Positive factors pertaining to the Company’s competitive position include well-recognized brands, strong brand management, varied product offerings, product innovation and a strong distribution network.
 
 
As of December 31, 2006, the Company employed approximately 15,800 persons worldwide.

Item 1A.   Risk Factors.
 
Significant factors that could impact the Company’s business operations include, without limitation, the following:
 
Availability or retention of retail space.  In those countries where we maintain market leadership in the chewing gum segment, our ability to retain preferred retail space allocation will impact results. If we are not able to retain this allocation, our results could be negatively impacted.
 
Availability of raw materials.  We use many different raw materials to manufacture chewing gum and other confectionery products including sugar, corn syrup, flavoring oils, polyols and high intensity sweeteners. While these products are generally readily available on the open market, if we were unable to maintain the availability, pricing and sourcing of these raw materials, our results could be negatively impacted.
 
Changes in demographics and consumer preferences.  We operate in an increasingly competitive market. As such, our continued success is dependent upon our ability to continue to create and market products which appeal to our diverse consumers. Failure to adequately anticipate and react to changing demographics and product preferences, the failure of new or existing products to be favorably received, or our inability to otherwise adapt to changing market needs, could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.
 
Changes in foreign currency and market conditions.  Manufacturing and sales of a significant portion of our products are outside the United States. The majority of the countries in which we operate tend to be politically, socially and economically stable. To the extent there is political or social unrest, civil war, terrorism or significant economic instability, the results of our business in such countries could be negatively impacted. In addition, volatility in foreign currencies could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.
 
Increased competition, discounting and other competitive actions.  We compete worldwide with other well-established manufacturers of confectionery products, including chewing gum. Our results may be negatively impacted by ineffective advertising, or by failure to sufficiently counter aggressive competitive actions. In addition, discounting and other competitive actions may make it more difficult for us to maintain our operating margins.


3


 

 
Underutilization of or inadequate manufacturing capacity and labor stoppages.  Unanticipated movements in consumer demands could result in inadequate manufacturing capacity or underutilization of our manufacturing capacity which could negatively impact manufacturing efficiencies and costs.
 
Governmental regulations.  Governmental regulations with respect to import duties, tariffs, taxes and environmental controls, both in and outside the U.S., could negatively impact our costs and ability to compete in domestic or foreign marketplaces.
 
Labor stoppages.  To the extent we experience any material labor stoppages, such disputes or strikes could negatively affect shipments from suppliers or shipments of finished product.
 
Outcome of integrating acquired businesses.  Our inability to successfully integrate any acquired business or assets, including the acquisition of certain confectionary assets of Kraft Foods Global, Inc., could cause actual results to differ from anticipated results or expectations of the Company’s business.
