Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • We operate in a highly competitive industry and we face risks related to the execution of our strategy and our timely response to pricing and other competitive pressures.
  • Promoting and protecting our reputation and brand image and health is essential to our business success.
  • We must correctly predict, identify and interpret changes in consumer preferences and demand and offer new and improved products that meet those changes.
  • We are subject to risks from operating globally.
  • We face risks related to tax matters, including changes in tax laws and rates, disagreements with taxing authorities and imposition of new taxes.
  • Our operations in certain emerging markets expose us to political, economic and regulatory risks.
  • Our use of information technology and third-party service providers exposes us to cybersecurity breaches and other business disruptions.
  • We are subject to risks from unanticipated business disruptions.
  • We are subject to currency exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Commodity and other input prices are volatile and may increase or decrease significantly or availability of commodities may become constrained.
  • We face risks related to complying with changes in and inconsistencies among laws and regulations in many countries in which we operate.
  • We may be unable to hire or retain and develop key personnel or a highly skilled and diverse global workforce or manage changes in our workforce.
  • Our retail customers are consolidating, and we must leverage our value proposition in order to compete against retailer and other economy brands.
  • We are subject to changes in our relationships with significant customers, suppliers and distributors.
  • We may decide or be required to recall products or be subjected to product liability claims.
  • We face risks related to legal or tax claims or other regulatory enforcement actions.
  • Climate change might adversely impact our supply chain or our operations.
  • We may not successfully identify, complete or manage strategic transactions.
  • We could fail to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting.
  • Weak financial performance, downgrades in our credit ratings, illiquid global capital markets and volatile global economic conditions could limit our access to the global capital markets, reduce our liquidity and increase our borrowing costs.
  • Volatility in the equity markets, interest rates, our participation in multiemployer pension plans and other factors could increase our costs relating to our employees’ pensions.
  • We face risks related to adequately protecting our valuable intellectual property rights.
Management Discussion
  • We manage our operations by region to leverage regional operating scale, manage different and changing business environments more effectively and pursue growth opportunities as they arise across our key markets. Our regional management teams have responsibility for the business, product categories and financial results in the regions.
  • We use segment operating income to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. We believe it is appropriate to disclose this measure to help investors analyze segment performance and trends. See Note 16, Segment Reporting, for additional information on our segments and Items Affecting Comparability of Financial Results earlier in this section for items affecting our segment operating results.
  • Net revenues decreased $126 million (17.1%), due to unfavorable currency (20.2 pp) and unfavorable volume/mix (5.1 pp), partially offset by higher net pricing (8.2 pp). Unfavorable currency impacts were due primarily to the strength of the U.S. dollar relative to most currencies in the region including the Brazilian real, Argentinian peso and Mexican peso. Unfavorable volume/mix was due to the negative volume impact from the COVID-19 outbreak as well as the impact of pricing-related elasticity, partially offset by the benefit from trade inventory restocking to return inventory levels closer to pre-COVID-19 rates. Unfavorable volume/mix was driven by declines in gum, candy and biscuits, partially offset by gains in refreshment beverages, chocolate and cheese & grocery. Higher net pricing was reflected across all categories, driven primarily by Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.
