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.
