Kraft Foods Group, Inc. Research Report

On August 1, 2013, Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (Kraft Foods Group) reported Q2
2013 financial results with GAAP revenue down 1.1% YoY to $4.7 billion.
Non-GAAP or organic revenue stood at $4.7 billion, down 1.2% YoY, due to lower
pricing. Tony Vernon, CEO of Kraft, commented, "We continue to make meaningful
progress on cost savings, cash flow, market share and building our brands for
the long term. Our brand investments and top-line growth in the second quarter
were held back by the return discipline we're applying to marketing, promotion
and innovation. We expect to see profitable growth from a stronger base going
forward and greater revenue growth in subsequent quarters as more new
initiatives come to market." According to the Company, the decline in revenue
was due to lower prices from higher levels of promotional activity, along with
lower green coffee costs compared to the previous year. This more than offset
the positive impact of an improved product mix from on-demand coffee and
liquid water enhancer innovations. The Full Research Report on Kraft Foods

share ahead of expectations. Our strong momentum in the Americas and Western
Europe, combined with improving trends in Asia-Pacific, position us well to
achieve our upwardly revised outlook for 2013." The Full Research Report on

operating environment and marketplace that also have impacted our full-year
outlook. These factors include ongoing macroeconomic weakness, poor weather,
continuing customer challenges from the impact of the French excise tax
increase last year, and the competitive environment in Great Britain. Recent
weather improvements and a solid summer program have helped restore growth in
our business as we begin the third quarter, although much of the key summer
selling season is still ahead of us." The Full Research Report on Coca-Cola
