Stocks in this article: DPS

Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (NYSE: DPS) reported fourth quarter 2012 EPS of $0.81 compared to $0.77 in the prior year period. Excluding unrealized commodity mark-to-market losses in both years and certain items affecting comparability in the prior year period, Core EPS were $0.82 compared to $0.84 in the prior year.

For the quarter, reported net sales increased 2% reflecting favorable price/mix, partially offset by a 1% decline in sales volumes. Foreign currency added approximately 1 percentage point to net sales growth. Reported segment operating profit (SOP) increased 5%, or $19 million, as the contributions from net sales growth, ongoing productivity improvements and lower marketing investments were partially offset by planned increases in labor and benefits and a higher LIFO inventory provision of $6 million. The year ago quarter included an $18 million provision for a certain legal matter. Reported income from operations for the quarter was $292 million, including $1 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market losses. Reported income from operations was $271 million in the prior year period, including $7 million of unrealized commodity mark-to-market losses and the previously disclosed legal provision.

For the year, reported net sales increased 2%. Reported income from operations was $1,092 million, compared to $1,024 million in the prior year period. For the year, the company reported earnings of $2.96 per diluted share compared to $2.74 per diluted share in the prior year period. Excluding a $17 million unrealized commodity mark-to-market gain in the current year and a $23 million unrealized commodity mark-to-market loss in the prior year period and certain items affecting comparability in both years, Core EPS were $2.92 compared to $2.85 in the prior year period.

DPS President and CEO Larry Young said, “As I look back on 2012, I am proud of the team’s continuing ability to outperform the CSD category, growing dollar share as measured by Nielsen and closing distribution gaps across CSDs, teas and juices.”
