Dr Pepper Snapple Group Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Reported EPS were $1.01, up 20% for the quarter. Core EPS were $0.88, up 11% for the quarter.

Year-to-date, the company returned $468 million to shareholders.

Net sales increased 1% for the quarter and year-to-date.

Company reaffirms full year 2013 Core EPS in the $3.04 to $3.12 range.

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (NYSE: DPS) reported third quarter 2013 EPS of $1.01 compared to $0.84 in the prior year period. Excluding unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains in both years and certain items affecting comparability in the current year, Core EPS were $0.88 compared to $0.79 in the prior year period. Year-to-date, the company reported earnings of $2.28 per diluted share compared to $2.15 per diluted share in the prior year period. Excluding certain items affecting comparability and unrealized commodity mark-to-market impacts in both years, Core EPS were $2.25 compared to $2.10 in the prior year period.

For the quarter, reported net sales increased 1% reflecting 3 percentage points of positive mix and pricing, partially offset by a 1% sales volume decline and higher discounts. Reported segment operating profit (SOP) increased 5%, or $18 million, due to a year-over-year LIFO benefit of $14 million, ongoing productivity improvements, a favorable adjustment to a previously disclosed legal provision and lower people costs primarily driven by favorable costs associated with our insurance programs. These benefits were partially offset by commodity cost increases, principally sweeteners.

Reported income from operations for the quarter was $300 million, including a $1 million unrealized commodity mark-to-market gain. Reported income from operations was $308 million in the prior year period, including $18 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains.

Year-to-date, reported net sales increased 1% and reported income from operations was $782 million, including $13 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market losses. Reported income from operations was $800 million in the prior year period, including $18 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains.

DPS President and CEO Larry Young said, "We continue to operate in an extremely challenging environment, with significant pressures in the CSD category now impacting both regular and diet products. Against this backdrop, our teams remained committed to executing our strategy and we continued to gain volume share while holding value share in the CSD category."

Young added, "We've continued to invest in our brands for their long-term success, and I'm encouraged at this early date with the performance of our Core 4 TEN platform as research tells us that it is bringing consumers back to the category. Rapid Continuous Improvement continues to drive meaningful results and is enabling us to build an improved operating platform. With our portfolio of consumer-loved brands, our strong execution focus and our continuous improvement mindset, I am confident we can deliver our profit goals for 2013."

BCS Volume

For the quarter, BCS volume was flat with carbonated soft drinks (CSDs) flat and non-carbonated beverages (NCBs) declining 1%.

In CSDs, Dr Pepper volume decreased 1%, as the CSD category continued to face significant headwinds. Our Core 4 brands, which include TEN, were flat as a high-single digit increase in Canada Dry was offset by mid-single digit declines in 7UP and Sunkist soda and a low-single digit decrease in A&W. Peñafiel increased double-digits, and Crush and Sun Drop both experienced high-single digit declines. Fountain foodservice volume was flat, cycling 2% volume growth in the prior year period.

In NCBs, Hawaiian Punch volume declined 6%. This decline was partially offset by a 4% increase in Snapple and a 1% increase in Mott's.

By geography, U.S. and Canada volume declined 1%, and Mexico and the Caribbean volume increased 6%.

Sales volume

For the quarter, sales volumes decreased 1%. Year-to-date, sales volumes decreased 3%.

Beverage Concentrates

Net sales for the quarter increased 2% as concentrate price increases taken earlier in the year and favorable mix were partially offset by a 2% volume decline. SOP increased 2% as net sales growth was partially offset by increased marketing investments of $3 million.

Packaged Beverages

Net sales for the quarter were flat as a 2% decline in sales volumes was offset by favorable mix and pricing. SOP increased 8% on a year-over-year LIFO inventory benefit of $14 million, lower people costs primarily driven by favorable costs associated with our insurance programs, a favorable adjustment to a previously disclosed legal provision and ongoing productivity improvements. These were partially offset by the net sales decline and commodity cost increases, principally sweeteners.

Latin America Beverages

Net sales for the quarter increased 12% reflecting favorable product mix and a 6% increase in sales volumes. SOP increased 13% as net sales growth and ongoing productivity improvements were partially offset by increases in people costs, other manufacturing expenses, higher marketing investments and commodity cost increases.

Corporate and other items

For the quarter, corporate costs totaled $75 million, including a $1 million unrealized commodity mark-to-market gain, a $7 million restructuring charge as well as higher benefit costs. Corporate costs in the prior year period were $47 million, including $18 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains.

Net interest expense decreased $2 million for the quarter compared to the prior year.

For the quarter, the reported effective tax rate was 231.8%, as the completion of an IRS audit increased our effective tax rate by 195.5%. The effective tax rate in the prior year period was 36.3%.

Cash flow

Year-to-date, the company generated $616 million of cash from operating activities. Capital spending totaled $111 million compared to $161 million in the prior year period. The company returned $468 million to shareholders in the form of stock repurchases ($243 million) and dividends ($225 million).

2013 full year guidance

The company now expects full year reported net sales to be about flat and Core EPS to be in the $3.04 to $3.12 range.

Brand investments associated with the launch of our TEN platform are expected to exceed $30 million.

The company continues to expect packaging and ingredient costs to increase COGS by about 1.5% on a constant volume/mix basis. The company also continues to expect to record a full year LIFO inventory benefit of approximately $30 million.

The company now expects its core tax rate to be 35.5%.

The company expects capital spending to be approximately 3% of net sales.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP INFORMATION
(Unaudited)

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP measures, that reflect the way management evaluates the business, may provide investors with additional information regarding the company's results, trends and ongoing performance on a comparable basis. Specifically, investors should consider the following with respect to our quarterly results:

Net sales and Segment Operating Profit, as adjusted to currency neutral: Net sales and Segment Operating Profit are on a currency neutral basis.

Free Cash Flow: Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital spending and certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods. The certain item excluded for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, relates to the tax payments resulting from the licensing agreements with PepsiCo and Coca-Cola.

Core Earnings: Core Earnings is defined as Reported Earnings adjusted for the unrealized mark-to-market impact of commodity derivatives and certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods. The certain items excluded for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, are (i) separation-related charges, primarily the completion of the IRS audit, a separation-related foreign deferred tax charge and the associated impacts under the Tax Indemnity Agreement with Mondelēz, (ii) adjustment to previously disclosed legal provision and (iii) restructuring charges. The certain items excluded for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, are (i) a separation-related foreign deferred tax benefit and (ii) a depreciation adjustment associated with the reassessment of a capital lease executed prior to the separation from Cadbury.

The tables on the following pages provide these reconciliations.
