Updated 2013 Guidance
Guidance for fully diluted 2013 EPS is based on the average daily exchange rates of the first two weeks of July 2013. Our 2013 guidance continues to assume a Venezuelan exchange rate of 10 to 1 for the balance of the year, excludes the impact of the February devaluation of the bolivar as well as any potential future devaluation, and excludes the impact of any repatriation of existing cash balances in Venezuela. Guidance for the year also excludes the following which were recognized in the first half of the year: $15.1 million in expenses (post-tax), mostly legal and advisory services relating to the Company’s response to information put into the marketplace by a short seller which information the Company believes to be inaccurate and misleading, and $2.7 million in expenses (post-tax) incurred for the re-audit of 2010-2012 financial statements resulting from KPMG LLP’s resignation, as well as any additional expenses related to these matters that are expected to be incurred in the second half of the year.
