PURCHASE, N.Y. ( TheStreet) -- PepsiCo (PEP) matched profit expectations for the second quarter as net income and revenue grew by double-digits thanks to strength in its snacks division and in emerging markets. But the company will raise prices again as costs and weaker consumer spending pressure results.
Pepsi booked a second-quarter net profit of $1.89 billion, or $1.17 a share. On an adjusted basis, earnings came in at $1.21 a share, matching Wall Street's expectations. In the year-earlier period, Pepsi earned $1.6 billion, or $1.09 a share on an adjusted basis.
Net revenue increased 13.7% to $16.83 billion, topping expectations for a top line of $16.41 billion. Revenue a year ago was $14.8 billion.
