Bryant continued, "We've done a lot of work in recent years to set the right foundation: we've invested in the business, we've adjusted our strategy to focus more on growth, and we have acquired the Pringles business. These have been significant changes for us; we're confident that they are the right ones and I remain optimistic regarding our potential in the future."
