Mondelez International Highlights Growth Investments In Emerging Markets Funded By Margin Expansion

Stocks in this article: MDLZ

Outlook

Mondelez International reiterated its expectation to deliver 2013 Organic Net Revenue growth at the low end of its 5-7 percent long-term target.  In the back half of the year, as headwinds from lower coffee pricing and capacity constraints abate, top-line growth is expected to accelerate significantly. 

The company also reaffirmed its 2013 Operating EPS guidance of $1.55-$1.60 on a constant currency basis[1].  Second quarter margins are expected to remain pressured due to the aforementioned growth investments and comparisons with very high margins in the second quarter 2012.  As with revenue growth, margin expansion is expected to sharply accelerate in the second half.

Rosenfeld concluded, "2013 is the first year of our journey as a focused growth company. I'm confident that our strategy will position us well to deliver top-tier performance in the near term and for many years to come."

Access to a live audio webcast of the presentation with accompanying slides will be available at http://www.veracast.com/webcasts/citigroup/consumer2013/76103269.cfm.  A replay of the presentation will be available one hour after the conclusion of the event until Aug. 26, 2013.
