Hershey Announces Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2013 Results; Reaffirms Outlook For 2014

Note: In this release, Hershey references income measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) because they exclude costs associated with business realignment and impairment, business acquisition closing and integration costs and non-service-related pension expenses (NSRPE). These non-GAAP financial measures are used in evaluating results of operations for internal purposes. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, the Company believes exclusion of such items provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations. A reconciliation is provided below of earnings per share-diluted in accordance with GAAP as presented in the Consolidated Statements of Income to non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude business realignment and impairment charges, NSRPE and acquisition closing and integration costs.
