Changes Related to Accounting for Pensions and Post-Retirement Benefit Plans

In an effort to increase the visibility into financial results, the company has chosen to adopt a new method for accounting for pensions; this change has no impact on cash flow. As a consequence of the change, the company recognized a year-end mark-to-market charge and removed pension-related amortization expense from results. These changes impacted both operating profit and earnings per share. Tables with revised historical figures for fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012 are provided in this release.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kellogg Company (NYSE:K) today announced that fourth quarter reported net sales increased to $3.6 billion, an 18.2 percent increase from the fourth quarter of 2011.  Internal net sales, which exclude the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, divestitures and integration costs, increased by 5.3 percent. Full-year 2012 reported net sales increased by 7.6 percent to $14.2 billion, an increase of $999 million from the full-year 2011 results. Full-year internal net sales increased by 2.5 percent.
