1. General
ORGANIZATION
References in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to "KDP" or "the Company" refer to Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. and all entities included in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. Definitions of terms used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are included within the Master Glossary.
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q refers to some of KDP's owned or licensed trademarks, trade names and service marks, which are referred to as the Company's brands. All of the product names included herein are either KDP registered trademarks or those of the Company's licensors.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting principally of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with KDP's consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes, included in the Company's Annual Report.
Except as otherwise specified, references to the "first quarter" indicate the Company's quarterly periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION
KDP consolidates all wholly owned subsidiaries.
The Company consolidates investments in companies in which it holds the majority interest. In these cases, the third party equity interest is referred to as non-controlling interest. Non-controlling interests are presented as a separate component within equity in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and net income attributable to the non-controlling interests are presented separately in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
The Company uses the equity method to account for investments in companies if the investment provides the Company with the ability to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies of the investee. Consolidated net income includes KDP's proportionate share of the net income or loss of these companies. Judgment regarding the level of influence over each equity method investment includes considering key factors such as ownership interest, representation on the board of directors or similar governing body, participation in policy-making decisions and material intercompany transactions.
KDP eliminates from its financial results all intercompany transactions between entities included in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
USE OF ESTIMATES
The process of preparing KDP's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the use of estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. These estimates and judgments are based on historical experience, future expectations and other factors and assumptions the Company believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates and judgments are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are revised when necessary. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period of change. Actual amounts may differ from these estimates.
RECENTLY ADOPTED PROVISIONS OF U.S. GAAP
As of January 1, 2021, the Company adopted ASU 2020-01, Investments—Equity Securities (Topic 321), Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323), and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Clarifying the Interactions between Topic 321, Topic 323, and Topic 815. The objective of the new standard is to clarify the interaction of the accounting for equity securities, investments accounted for under the equity method of accounting and the accounting for certain forward contracts and purchased options accounted for under different topics in U.S. GAAP. The adoption of the standard did not impact KDP's consolidated financial statements.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenant requirements relating to the KDP Credit Agreements.
2019 KDP Term Loan
During the first quarter of 2021, the Company voluntarily prepaid and terminated the 2019 KDP Term Loan using proceeds from the aforementioned issuance of senior subordinated notes. As a result of this voluntary prepayment, the Company recorded $1 million of losses on early extinguishment of debt related to the 2019 KDP Term Loan during the first quarter of 2021.
364-Day Credit Agreements
During the first quarter of 2021, the Company terminated its 2020 364-Day Credit Agreement, which was originally available through April 2021. No amounts were drawn under the 2020 364-Day Credit Agreement prior to termination.
The Company then entered into the 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement on March 24, 2021 among KDP, the banks party thereto and Bank of America, N.A. as administrative agent, pursuant to which the Company obtained a $1,500 million commitment. The interest rate applicable to borrowings under the 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement ranges from a rate equal to LIBOR plus a margin of 1.000% to 1.625% or a base rate plus a margin of 0.000% to 0.625%, depending on the rating of certain index debt of the Company. The 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement matures on March 23, 2022, and includes a term-out option which allows KDP to extend any outstanding amounts borrowed under the agreement for one year for a fee of 0.750% on the amounts borrowed.

The fair value of the Company's Notes was $14,828 million and $15,274 million as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

IMPAIRMENT TESTING
KDP conducts impairment tests on goodwill and all indefinite lived intangible assets annually, or more frequently if circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. As a result of the changes to the Company’s operating segments effective January 1, 2021, as described in Note 7, which resulted in a change to the Company’s reporting units, management performed a step zero analysis as of the effective date of the goodwill for the impacted reporting units. The Company also performed an analysis as of March 31, 2021 to ensure that there were no additional triggering events which occurred during the quarter. As a result of these analyses, management did not identify any indications that the carrying amount of any goodwill or any intangible asset may not be recoverable.
4. Restructuring and Integration Costs
The Company implements restructuring programs from time to time and incurs costs that are designed to improve operating effectiveness and lower costs. When the Company implements these programs, the Company incurs expenses, such as employee separations, lease terminations and other direct exit costs, that qualify as exit and disposal costs under U.S. GAAP.
The Company also incurs expenses that are an integral component of, and directly attributable to, its restructuring activities, which do not qualify as exit and disposal costs, such as accelerated depreciation, asset impairments, implementation costs and other incremental costs. These costs are recorded within SG&A expenses on the income statement and are held primarily within unallocated corporate costs.
DPS INTEGRATION PROGRAM
As part of the DPS Merger, the Company developed a program to deliver $600 million in synergies over a three-year period through supply chain optimization, reduction of indirect spend through new economies of scale, elimination of duplicative support functions and advertising and promotion optimization. The Company expects to incur total cash expenditures of $750 million, comprised of both capital expenditures and expense, and expects to complete the program in 2021. The restructuring and integration program resulted in cumulative pre-tax charges of approximately $630 million, primarily consisting of professional fees related to the integration and transformation and costs associated with severance and employee terminations, through March 31, 2021. Restructuring and integration charges on the DPS Integration Program were $43 million and $53 million for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Restructuring liabilities that qualify as exit and disposal costs under U.S. GAAP are included in accounts payable and accrued expenses on the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. Restructuring liabilities for the DPS Integration Program, all of which were workforce reduction costs, were as follows for the period presented:
(in millions)Restructuring Liabilities

5. Derivatives
KDP is exposed to market risks arising from adverse changes in interest rates, commodity prices, and FX rates. KDP manages these risks through a variety of strategies, including the use of interest rate contracts, FX forward contracts, commodity forward, future, swap and option contracts and supplier pricing agreements. KDP does not hold or issue derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.
KDP formally designates and accounts for certain foreign exchange forward contracts that meet established accounting criteria under U.S. GAAP as cash flow hedges. For such contracts, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative instruments is recorded, net of applicable taxes, in AOCI. When net income is affected by the variability of the underlying transaction, the applicable offsetting amount of the gain or loss from the derivative instrument deferred in AOCI is reclassified to net income. Cash flows from derivative instruments designated in a qualifying hedging relationship are classified in the same category as the cash flows from the hedged items. If a cash flow hedge were to cease to qualify for hedge accounting, or were terminated, the derivatives would continue to be carried on the balance sheet at fair value until settled and hedge accounting would be discontinued prospectively. If the underlying hedged transaction ceases to exist, any associated amounts reported in AOCI would be reclassified to earnings at that time.
For derivatives that are not designated or for which the designated hedging relationship is discontinued, the gain or loss on the instrument is recognized in earnings in the period of change.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited, Continued)
The Company has exposure to credit losses from derivative instruments in an asset position in the event of nonperformance by the counterparties to the agreements. Historically, the Company has not experienced material credit losses as a result of counterparty nonperformance. The Company selects and periodically reviews counterparties based on credit ratings, limits its exposure to a single counterparty under defined guidelines and monitors the market position of the programs upon execution of a hedging transaction and at least on a quarterly basis.
INTEREST RATES 
Economic Hedges
KDP is exposed to interest rate risk related to its borrowing arrangements and obligations. The Company enters into interest rate swaps to provide predictability in the Company's overall cost structure, including both receive-fixed, pay-variable and receive-variable, pay-fixed swaps. A natural hedging relationship exists in which changes in the fair value of the instruments act as an economic offset to changes in the fair value of the underlying items. Changes in the fair value of these instruments are recorded in earnings throughout the term of the derivative instrument and are reported in interest expense in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. As of March 31, 2021, all economic interest rate swap contracts will mature in March 2025.
Cash Flow Hedges
In order to hedge the variability in cash flows from interest rate changes associated with the Company’s planned future issuances of long-term debt, during the first quarter of 2021, the Company entered into forward starting swaps and designated them as cash flow hedges. The forward starting swaps are planned to be unwound at the issuance of long-term debt. As of March 31, 2021, the forward starting swaps have mandatory termination dates ranging from June 2022 to May 2025.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE
KDP is exposed to foreign exchange risk in its international subsidiaries, which may transact in currencies that are different from the functional currencies of those subsidiaries. The balance sheets of each of these businesses are also subject to exposure from movements in exchange rates.
Economic Hedges
During the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, KDP held FX forward contracts to economically manage the balance sheet exposures resulting from changes in the FX exchange rates described above. The intent of these FX contracts is to minimize the impact of FX risk associated with balance sheet positions not in local currency. In these cases, a hedging relationship exists in which changes in the fair value of the instruments act as an economic offset to changes in the fair value of the underlying items. Changes in the fair value of these instruments are recorded in earnings throughout the term of the derivative instrument and are reported in the same caption of the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income as the associated risk. These FX contracts have maturities ranging from April 2021 to September 2024 as of March 31, 2021.
Cash Flow Hedges
During 2020, KDP began to designate certain FX forward contracts related to inventory purchases of the Canadian and Mexican businesses as cash flow hedges in order to manage the exposures resulting from changes in the FX rates described above. The intent of these FX contracts is to provide predictability in the Company's overall cost structure. These FX contracts, carried at fair value, have maturities ranging from April 2021 to November 2022 as of March 31, 2021.
COMMODITIES
Economic Hedges
KDP centrally manages the exposure to volatility in the prices of certain commodities used in its production process and transportation through various derivative contracts. The intent of these contracts is to provide a certain level of predictability in the Company's overall cost structure. During the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, the Company held forward, future, swap and option contracts that economically hedged certain of its risks. In these cases, a hedging relationship exists in which changes in the fair value of the instruments act as an economic offset to changes in the fair value of the underlying items. Changes in the fair value of these instruments are recorded in earnings throughout the term of the derivative instrument and are reported in the same line item of the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income as the hedged transaction. Unrealized gains and losses are recognized as a component of unallocated corporate costs until the Company's operating segments are affected by the completion of the underlying transaction, at which time the gain or loss is reflected as a component of the respective segment's income from operations. These commodity contracts have maturities ranging from April 2021 to January 2024 as of March 31, 2021.

FAIR VALUE OF DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
The fair values of commodity contracts, interest rate contracts and FX forward contracts are determined based on inputs that are readily available in public markets or can be derived from information available in publicly quoted markets. The fair value of commodity contracts are valued using the market approach based on observable market transactions, primarily underlying commodities futures or physical index prices, at the reporting date. Interest rate contracts are valued using models based primarily on readily observable market parameters, such as LIBOR forward rates, for all substantial terms of the Company's contracts and credit risk of the counterparties. The fair value of FX forward contracts are valued using quoted forward FX prices at the reporting date. Therefore, the Company has categorized these contracts as Level 2.

6. Leases
The Company leases certain facilities and machinery and equipment, including fleet. These leases expire at various dates through 2044. Some lease agreements contain standard renewal provisions that allow the Company to renew the lease at rates equivalent to fair market value at the end of the lease term. The Company's lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or restrictive covenants, except for leases of certain manufacturing properties that contain residual value guarantees at the end of the term. KDP has lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, which are generally accounted for as a single lease component.

7. Segments
Effective January 1, 2021, the Company modified its internal reporting and operating segments to reflect changes in the executive leadership team to further enhance speed-to-market and decision effectiveness. These modifications did not change the Company’s reportable segments. The Company's reportable segments consist of the following:
The Coffee Systems segment reflects sales in the U.S. and Canada of the manufacture and distribution of finished goods relating to the Company's coffee system, K-Cup pods and brewers.
The Packaged Beverages segment reflects sales in the U.S. and Canada from the manufacture and distribution of finished beverages and other products, including sales of the Company's own brands and third-party brands, through both the DSD and WD systems. DSD and WD have both been identified as operating segments that the Company aggregated into Packaged Beverages due to similar economic characteristics and similarities in the nature of finished goods sales and route-to-markets.
The Beverage Concentrates segment reflects sales of the Company's branded concentrates and syrup to third-party bottlers primarily in the U.S. and Canada. Most of the brands in this segment are carbonated soft drink brands. Our FFS operating segment is aggregated with our Branded Concentrates operating segment into our Beverage Concentrates reportable segment due to similar economic characteristics and similarities in the nature of the product sold.
The Latin America Beverages segment reflects sales primarily in Mexico and the Caribbean from the manufacture and distribution of concentrates, syrup and finished beverages.
Segment results are based on management reports. Net sales and income from operations are the significant financial measures used to assess the operating performance of the Company's operating segments. Intersegment sales are recorded at cost and are eliminated in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. “Unallocated corporate costs” are excluded from the Company's measurement of segment performance and include unrealized commodity derivative gains and losses, and certain general corporate expenses.

9. Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes revenue when obligations under the terms of a contract with the customer are satisfied. Branded product sales, which include CSDs, NCB, K-Cup pods and appliances, occur once control is transferred upon delivery to the customer. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for transferring goods. The amount of consideration the Company receives and revenue the Company recognizes varies with changes in customer incentives the Company offers to its customers and their customers. Sales taxes and other similar taxes are excluded from revenue. Costs associated with shipping and handling activities, such as merchandising, are included in SG&A expenses as revenue is recognized.

LEGAL MATTERS
The Company is involved from time to time in various claims, proceedings, and litigation. KDP establishes reserves for specific legal proceedings when the Company determines that the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome is probable and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. KDP has also identified certain other legal matters where the Company believes an unfavorable outcome is reasonably possible and/or for which no estimate of possible losses can be made.
Antitrust Litigation
In February 2014, TreeHouse Foods, Inc. and certain affiliated entities filed suit against KDP’s wholly-owned subsidiary, KGM, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (“SDNY”) (TreeHouse Foods, Inc. et al. v. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. et al). The TreeHouse complaint asserted claims under the federal antitrust laws and various state laws, contending that Keurig had monopolized alleged markets for single serve coffee brewers and single serve coffee pods. The TreeHouse complaint sought monetary damages, declaratory relief, injunctive relief and attorneys’ fees. In March 2014, JBR, Inc. filed suit against KGM in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California (JBR, Inc. v. Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.). The claims asserted and relief sought in the JBR, Inc. complaint were substantially similar to the claims asserted and relief sought in the TreeHouse complaint.
Beginning in March 2014, twenty-seven putative class actions asserting similar claims and seeking similar relief were filed on behalf of purported direct and indirect purchasers of KGM’s products in various federal district courts. In June 2014, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation granted a motion to transfer these various actions, including the TreeHouse and JBR actions, to a single judicial district for coordinated or consolidated pre-trial proceedings (the “Multidistrict Antitrust Litigation”). Consolidated putative class action complaints by direct purchaser and indirect purchaser plaintiffs were filed in July 2014. An additional class action on behalf of indirect purchasers, originally filed in the Circuit Court of Faulkner County, Arkansas (Julie Rainwater et al. v. Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.), was transferred into the Multidistrict Antitrust Litigation in November 2015. In January 2019, McLane Company, Inc. filed suit against KGM (McLane Company, Inc. v. Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.) in the SDNY asserting similar claims and also was transferred into the Multidistrict Antitrust Litigation. These actions are now pending in the SDNY (In re: Keurig Green Mountain Single-Serve Coffee Antitrust Litigation). Discovery in the Multidistrict Antitrust Litigation commenced in December 2017.
Separately, a statement of claim was filed in September 2014 against KGM and Keurig Canada Inc. in Ontario, Canada by Club Coffee L.P., a Canadian manufacturer of single serve beverage pods, asserting a breach of competition law and false and misleading statements by Keurig.
In July 2020, KGM reached an agreement with the putative indirect purchaser class plaintiffs in the Multidistrict Antitrust Litigation to settle the claims asserted in their complaint for $31 million. The settlement class consists of individuals and entities in the United States that purchased, from persons other than KGM and not for purposes of resale, KGM manufactured or licensed single serve beverage portion packs during the applicable class period (beginning in September 2010 for most states). The court granted preliminary approval of the settlement in December 2020, and the Company paid the settlement amount in January 2021. Putative class members have the opportunity to object or opt out of the settlement, and a final approval hearing is scheduled in June 2021.
KDP intends to vigorously defend the remaining lawsuits brought by Treehouse, JBR, McLane, the putative direct purchaser class and Club Coffee. At this time, the Company is unable to predict the outcome of these lawsuits, the potential loss or range of loss, if any, associated with the resolution of these lawsuits or any potential effect they may have on the Company or its operations.

Proposition 65 Litigation
In May 2011, CERT filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, (Council for Education and Research on Toxics v. Brad Barry LLC, et al., Case No. BC461182), alleging that KGM, and certain other defendants who manufacture, package, distribute or sell coffee, failed to warn persons in California that KGM's coffee products expose persons to the chemical acrylamide in violation of Proposition 65.
KGM, as part of a joint defense group organized to defend against the lawsuit, disputed CERT's claims and asserted multiple affirmative defenses. The case was scheduled to proceed to a third phase for trial on damages, remedies and attorneys' fees, but such trial did not occur in light of California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment proposal of a new Proposition 65 regulation clarifying that cancer warnings are not required for chemicals, such as acrylamide, that are present in coffee as a result of roasting coffee beans. After the regulation took effect in October 2019, the litigation continued based on, among other items, CERT’s contentions that the regulation is legally invalid and, alternatively, cannot be applied to its pending claims. In August 2020, the court granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment, effectively ending CERT's Proposition 65 litigation at the trial court level. CERT has filed its appeal brief, and the Company intends to continue vigorously defending itself in this action. However, the Company believes that the likelihood that it will incur a material loss in connection with the CERT litigation is remote and accordingly, no loss contingency has been recorded.

KDP operates as an integrated brand owner, manufacturer and distributor. We believe our integrated business model strengthens our route-to-market and provides opportunities for net sales and profit growth through the alignment of the economic interests of our brand ownership and our manufacturing and distribution businesses through both our DSD system and our WD delivery system. KDP markets and sells its products to retailers, including supermarkets, mass merchandisers, club stores, pure-play e-commerce retailers, and office superstores; to restaurants, hotel chains, office product and coffee distributors, and partner brand owners; and directly to consumers through its websites. Our integrated business model enables us to be more flexible and responsive to the changing needs of our large retail customers and allows us to more fully leverage our scale and reduce costs by creating greater geographic manufacturing and distribution coverage.
The beverage market is subject to some seasonal variations. Our cold beverage sales are generally higher during the warmer months, while hot beverage sales are generally higher during the cooler months. Overall beverage sales can be influenced by the timing of holidays and weather fluctuations. Sales of brewing systems and related accessories are generally higher during the second half of the year due to the holiday shopping season.

COFFEE SYSTEMS
Our Coffee Systems segment is primarily a producer of innovative single serve brewers and specialty coffee in the U.S. and Canada.
Our Coffee Systems segment manufactures over 75% of the pods in the single-serve K-Cup pod format in the U.S. We manufacture and sell 100% of the K-Cup pods of the following brands to retailers, away from home channel participants and end-use consumers: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, The Original Donut Shop, McCafé, Laughing Man, REVV, and Van Houtte.
We manufacture and sell K-Cup pods for the following brands to our partners, who in turn sell them to retailers: Starbucks, Smuckers, Peet's, Dunkin' Donuts, Folgers, Newman’s Own Organics, Caribou Coffee, Eight O’Clock, Maxwell House, and Tim Hortons, as well as private label arrangements. Generally, we are able to sell these brands to our away from home channel participants and end-use consumers. We also have agreements for manufacturing, distributing, and selling K-Cup pods for tea under brands such as Celestial Seasonings, Lipton and Tazo in addition to K-Cup pods of our own brand, Snapple. We also produce and sell K-Cup pods for cocoa, including through a licensing agreement for the Swiss Miss brand, and hot apple cider, including under our own brand, Mott's.
Our Coffee Systems segment manufactures its K-Cup pods in facilities in North America that include specialty designed proprietary high-speed packaging lines using freshly roasted and ground coffee as well as tea, cocoa and other products. We offer high-quality coffee, including certified single-origin, organic, flavored, limited edition and proprietary blends. We carefully select our coffee beans and appropriately roast the coffees to optimize their taste and flavor differences. We engineer and design most of our single serve brewers, where we then utilize third-party contract manufacturers located in various countries in Asia for brewer appliance manufacturing. We distribute our brewers using third-party distributors, retail partners and through our website at www.keurig.com.
PACKAGED BEVERAGES
Our Packaged Beverages segment is principally a brand ownership, manufacturing and distribution business. In this segment, we primarily manufacture and distribute packaged beverages of our brands. Additionally, in order to maximize the size and scale of our manufacturing and distribution operations, we also distribute packaged beverages for our partner brands and manufacture packaged beverages for other third parties in the U.S. and Canada.
The larger NCB brands in this segment include Snapple, Mott's, Bai, Clamato, Hawaiian Punch, Core, Yoo-Hoo, ReaLemon, evian, Vita Coco and Mr and Mrs T mixers. The larger CSD brands in this segment include Dr Pepper, Canada Dry, A&W, 7UP, Sunkist, Squirt, Big Red, RC Cola, and Vernors.
The majority of our Packaged Beverages net sales come from the manufacturing and distribution of our own brands and the contract manufacturing of certain private label and emerging brand beverages. We also recognize net sales in this segment from the distribution of our partner brands such as evian, Vita Coco, Peet's RTD Coffee, A Shoc energy drinks, Runa energy drinks and Polar sparkling seltzer waters. We provide a route-to-market for third party brand owners seeking effective distribution for their new and emerging brands. These brands give us exposure in certain markets to fast growing segments of the beverage industry with minimal capital investment.
Our Packaged Beverages products are manufactured in multiple facilities across the U.S. and are sold or distributed to retailers and their warehouses by our own distribution network or by third party distributors.
We sell our Packaged Beverages products through our DSD and our WD systems, both of which include sales to all major retail channels.
BEVERAGE CONCENTRATES
Our Beverage Concentrates segment is principally a brand ownership business where we manufacture and sell beverage concentrates in the U.S. and Canada. Most of the brands in this segment are CSD brands. Key brands include Dr Pepper, Canada Dry, Crush, Schweppes, Sun Drop, Sunkist soda, A&W, 7UP, Squirt, Big Red, RC Cola and Hawaiian Punch. Almost all of our beverage concentrates are manufactured at our plant in St. Louis, Missouri. We are expanding our manufacturing capabilities to include a concentrate manufacturing facility in Ireland in 2021.
Beverage concentrates are shipped to third party bottlers, as well as to our own manufacturing systems, who combine them with carbonation, water, sweeteners and other ingredients, package the combined product in aluminum cans, PET containers and glass bottles, and sell them as a finished beverage to retailers through our Branded Concentrates operating segment. Beverage concentrates are also manufactured into syrup, which is shipped to fountain customers, such as fast food restaurants, who mix the syrup with water and carbonation to create a finished beverage at the point of sale to consumers through our FFS operating segment. Dr Pepper represents most of our FFS volume.
Our Beverage Concentrates brands are sold by our bottlers through all major retail channels.
27

LATIN AMERICA BEVERAGES
Our Latin America Beverages segment is a brand ownership, manufacturing and distribution business, with operations in Mexico representing approximately 90% of the segment's 2020 net sales. This segment participates mainly in the carbonated mineral water, flavored CSD, bottled water and vegetable juice categories. The largest brands include Peñafiel, Clamato, Squirt, Aguafiel and Crush.
VOLUME
In evaluating our performance, we consider different volume measures depending on whether we sell beverage concentrates, finished beverages, K-Cup pods or brewers.
Coffee Systems K-Cup Pod and Appliance Sales Volume
In our Coffee Systems segments, we measure our sales volume as the number of appliances and the number of individual K-Cup pods sold to our customers.
Packaged Beverages and Latin America Beverages Sales Volume
In our Packaged Beverages and Latin America Beverages segments, we measure volume as case sales to customers. A case sale represents a unit of measurement equal to 288 fluid ounces of packaged beverage sold by us. Case sales include both our owned brands and certain brands licensed to and/or distributed by us.
Beverage Concentrates Sales Volume
In our Beverage Concentrates segment, we measure our sales volume as concentrate case sales for concentrates sold by us to our bottlers and distributors. A concentrate case is the amount of concentrate needed to make one case of 288 fluid ounces of finished beverage, the equivalent of 24 twelve ounce servings. It does not include any other component of the finished beverage other than concentrate.
COMPARABLE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Management believes that there are certain non-GAAP financial measures that allow management to evaluate our results, trends and ongoing performance on a comparable basis. In order to derive the adjusted financial information, we adjust certain financial statement captions and metrics prepared under U.S. GAAP for certain items affecting comparability. See Non-GAAP Financial Measures for further information on the certain items affecting comparability used in the preparation of the financial information. These items are referred to within this Management's Discussion and Analysis discussion as Adjusted income from operations, Adjusted interest expense, Adjusted provision for income taxes, Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted EPS.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Impact of COVID-19 on our Financial Statements
On March 11, 2021, the world marked the one-year anniversary of the date that the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The impact of COVID-19 on our first quarter net sales performance continued to present both headwinds and tailwinds across the business and within the segments, requiring strong portfolio, package and channel mix management to optimize overall performance. The diversity of the Company’s broad portfolio and extensive route to market network enabled it to successfully navigate these mix impacts posed by the pandemic to drive overall performance and deliver a strong first quarter.
Coffee Systems experienced double-digit growth in K-Cup coffee pods for at-home consumption which more than offset the continued significant decline in away-from-home consumption due to weaknesses in the office coffee channel, as elevated work-from-home trends persisted throughout the quarter. Brewer volume advanced significantly reflecting growth in purchases of brewers due to successful innovation and investments to drive household penetration. Sales in the e-commerce channel were again very strong, as consumers continue to shift purchases to the online channel, including at the www.keurig.com retail site.
Packaged Beverages delivered strong net sales driven by strong in-market execution that resulted in market share growth in the majority of the segment's beverage portfolio, despite lapping the initial pantry stock-up behavior at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic at the end of the first quarter of 2020. Performance in large-format channels continued to be strong across multi-pack and take-home packages, and performance in the convenience and gas channels improved during the quarter, as consumer mobility increased.
Beverage Concentrates returned to growth in the quarter as volume growth in sales to bottlers and distributors was tempered by declines in the fountain foodservice business, which services restaurants and hospitality, which continues to experience softness as a result of COVID-19 but has been steadily improving as businesses begin to reopen.
Latin America Beverages experienced a modest decline in sales volumes driven by continued limited consumer mobility in Mexico.
28

The current environment has increased operating costs, requiring us to take deliberate action. In addition to strong portfolio, package and channel mix management to optimize overall net sales performance, we maintained our strong cost discipline, which included the following:
Reduced marketing expense in relation to the prior year pre-COVID-19 levels of spending, given the current COVID-19 landscape has reduced the effectiveness and return on certain marketing investments; and
Significantly reduced all other discretionary costs, such as travel and entertainment expenses, within the business.
As a result of these items, COVID-19 is impacting our results, both positively and negatively, and should be taken into account when reviewing this Management's Discussion and Analysis.
The following table sets forth our reconciliation of significant COVID-19-related expenses. Employee compensation expense and employee protection costs, which impact our SG&A expenses and cost of sales, are included as the COVID-19 item affecting comparability and is excluded in our Adjusted financial measures. In addition, reported amounts under U.S. GAAP also include additional costs, not included as the COVID-19 item affecting comparability, as presented in tables below.

Key Events During the First Quarter of 2021
In February 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share, payable in U.S. dollars, on the Company’s common stock. The regular quarterly dividend was paid on April 15, 2021 to shareholders of record on April 1, 2021.
In March 2021, we filed a prospectus supplement with the SEC to sell up to 4,300,000 shares to or through Goldman in at-the-market offerings, known as an ATM Program. The ATM Program was completed effective March 15, 2021, and the net proceeds of approximately $140 million were primarily used to cover our obligation to remit cash to local, state and federal tax authorities in connection with the net settlement of vesting restricted stock units during the first quarter of 2021. Use of the ATM Program to fund these tax withholding obligations is intended to create an orderly market in KDP shares being sold to cover tax obligations on behalf of employees upon the vesting of equity awards in 2021.
In March 2021, we completed the issuance of a total of $1,150 million aggregate principal amount of 2024 Notes, $500 million aggregate principal amount of 2031 Notes and $500 million aggregate principal amount of 2051 Notes. We used the proceeds from these Notes to repay our 2021-A Notes, our 2021-B Notes, our 2022 Notes, and approximately $1 billion of our 2023 Notes, as well as to voluntarily prepay and terminate our 2019 KDP Term Loan.
EFFECT OF RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS AND SEC REGULATIONS
On November 19, 2020, the SEC issued a final rule intended to modernize, simplify and enhance certain financial disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K related to Management's Discussion and Analysis, Selected Financial Data, and Supplementary Financial Information. Early adoption on an item-by-item basis is permitted after February 10, 2021, the effective date of the rule, and we must apply the rule to our Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2021. We early adopted the amendments to one item resulting in the elimination of Item 301, Selected Financial Data, from Part II, Item 6 of our Annual Report, and we have adopted the remaining amendments which are applicable to Form 10-Q in this Quarterly Report for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
Refer to Note 1 of the Notes to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a discussion of recently issued accounting standards and recently adopted provisions of U.S. GAAP.

CSDs6.8 
NCBs(10.2)
Net Sales. Net sales increased $289 million, or 11.1%, to $2,902 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $2,613 million in the prior year period. This performance reflected volume/mix of 10.3%, net price realization of 0.5% and favorable FX translation of 0.3%.
Gross Profit. Gross profit increased $148 million, or 10.2%, to $1,600 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $1,452 million in the prior year period. This performance primarily reflected strong volume/mix and the benefit of productivity and merger synergies, partially offset by inflation in commodity costs. Gross margin decreased 50 bps versus the year ago period to 55.1%.
31

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. SG&A expenses decreased $67 million, or 6.5%, to $961 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $1,028 million in the prior year period. The decrease was driven by the favorable change in commodity mark-to-market impacts of $72 million, lower marketing expense in relation to the prior year pre-COVID-19 levels of spending and productivity and merger synergies, partially offset by inflation in logistics, higher operating costs associated with the increased shipment volume and higher professional fees.
Other Operating Income, net. Other operating income, net had an unfavorable change of $41 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year period, largely driven by the network optimization program gain of $42 million on the asset sale-leaseback of four facilities in the first quarter of 2020.
Income from Operations. Income from operations increased $174 million, or 37.3%, to $640 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $466 million in the prior year period, driven by the increase in gross profit and the decrease in SG&A expenses, partially offset by the unfavorable change in other operating income, net. Operating margin increased 430 bps versus the year ago period to 22.1%.
Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased $13 million, or 8.5%, to $140 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $153 million for the prior year period. This change was primarily the result of the favorable change in unrealized interest rate swap mark-to-market impacts of $32 million, partially offset by the unfavorable comparison to the realized benefit of unwinding several interest rate swap contracts in the prior year period.
Loss on Early Extinguishment of Debt. Loss on early extinguishment of debt reflected expense of $105 million during the first quarter of 2021 due to our strategic refinancing initiatives.
Impairment of Investments and Note Receivable. Impairment on investments and note receivable reflected a favorable comparison to a non-cash impairment charge of $86 million in the prior year period associated with our Bedford investment.
Effective Tax Rate. The effective tax rate decreased 560 bps to 18.3% for the first quarter of 2021, compared to 23.9% in the prior year period, primarily driven by the tax benefit received from excess tax deductions that were generated from the vesting of RSUs.
Net Income. Net income increased $169 million, or 108.3%, to $325 million for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to $156 million in the prior year period, driven by improved income from operations and reduced interest expense, as well as the favorable comparison to the impairment on investments and note receivable in the first quarter of 2020, partially offset by the loss on early extinguishment of debt in the first quarter of 2021.
Diluted EPS. Diluted EPS increased 109.1% to $0.23 per diluted share as compared to $0.11 in the prior year period.

Adjusted Income from Operations. Adjusted income from operations increased $57 million, or 8.3%, to $741 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to Adjusted income from operations of $684 million in the prior year period. Driving this performance in the current period were strong volume/mix, the benefit of productivity and merger synergies, which impacted both SG&A and cost of sales, and lower marketing expense in relation to the prior year pre-COVID-19 levels of spending. Partially offsetting these positive drivers were higher manufacturing costs and operating costs, driven by inflation in commodities and logistics, increases in employee costs and professional fees, and an unfavorable comparison to a network optimization program gain of $42 million on the asset-sale leaseback of four facilities in the prior year period. Adjusted operating margin declined 70 bps versus the year ago period to 25.5%.
Adjusted Interest Expense. Adjusted interest expense increased $19 million, or 15.8%, to $139 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to Adjusted interest expense of $120 million in the prior year period, driven by the unfavorable comparison to the realized benefit of unwinding several interest rate swap contracts in the first quarter of 2020.
32

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate. The Adjusted effective tax rate decreased 290 bps to 22.1% for the first quarter of 2021, compared to 25.0% in the prior year period, primarily driven by the tax benefit received from excess tax deductions that were generated from the vesting of RSUs.
Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted net income increased 15.4% to $471 million for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to Adjusted net income of $408 million in the prior year period. This performance was driven primarily by strong growth in Adjusted income from operations.
Adjusted Diluted EPS. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 13.8% to $0.33 per diluted share as compared to Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.29 per diluted share in the prior year period.

Sales Volume. Sales volume growth in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year period for the Coffee Systems segment included strong K-Cup pod volume growth of 13.7%, reflecting strength in at-home consumption which was tempered by continued softness in the away-from-home business due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Brewer volume increased 61.4% in the first quarter of 2021, as compared to a decline of 2.4% in the year-ago period, driven by our successful brewer innovation program as well as a benefit from shipment timing.
Net Sales. Net sales increased 17.4% to $1,142 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $973 million in the prior year period, driven by strong volume/mix of 19.5% and favorable FX translation of 0.5%, partially offset by lower net price realization of 2.6%.
33

Income from Operations. Income from operations increased $64 million, or 23.5%, to $336 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $272 million in the prior year period, driven by strong volume/mix and the continued benefit of productivity and merger synergies, as well as reduced costs to achieve those productivity and merger synergies. These benefits were partially offset by declines due to strategic pricing initiatives, the unfavorable comparison to a network optimization program gain of $16 million on an asset sale-leaseback of a manufacturing facility in the prior year period, inflation in packaging and raw materials and $10 million of increased charges due to COVID-19. Operating margin grew 140 bps versus the year ago period to 29.4%.
Adjusted Income from Operations. Adjusted income from operations increased $42 million, or 12.1%, to $389 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $347 million in the prior year period, driven by strong volume/mix and the continued benefit of productivity and merger synergies. These benefits were partially offset by declines due to strategic pricing initiatives, the unfavorable comparison to a network optimization program gain of $16 million on an asset sale-leaseback of a manufacturing facility in the prior year period, and inflation in packaging and coffee costs. Adjusted operating margin declined 160 bps versus the year ago period to 34.1%, primarily reflecting unfavorable mix due to the strong brewer growth and the unfavorable comparison to the gain on an asset sale-leaseback in the prior year.

Sales Volume. Sales volume for the first quarter of 2021 increased 3.8% compared to the prior year period, driven by strength in CSDs which was partially offset by the unfavorable comparison to the stock-up behavior in the first quarter of 2020 related to COVID-19.
Net Sales. Net sales increased 7.4% to $1,307 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $1,217 million in the prior year period, driven by volume/mix of 6.8%, net price realization of 0.4% and favorable FX translation of 0.2%.
Income from Operations. Income from operations decreased $14 million, or 7.4%, to $175 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $189 million for the prior year period, driven primarily by the unfavorable comparison to a network optimization gain of $26 million in the prior year period related to the asset sale-leaseback of three facilities, inflation, led by commodity costs and logistics, increased operating costs due to higher volumes and expenses associated with productivity projects. These decreases were partially offset by strong volume/mix growth and the benefit of productivity and merger synergies. Operating margin declined 210 bps versus the year ago period to 13.4%.
Adjusted Income from Operations. Adjusted income from operations decreased $6 million, or 3.0%, to $197 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $203 million for the prior year period, driven primarily by the unfavorable comparison to a network optimization gain of $26 million in the prior year period related to the asset sale-leaseback of three facilities, inflation, led by commodity costs and logistics, and increased operating costs due to higher volumes. These decreases were partially offset by strong volume/mix growth and productivity and merger synergies. Adjusted operating margin declined 160 bps versus the year ago period to 15.1%, primarily reflecting the aforementioned asset sale-leaseback gain in the year-ago period.

Sales Volume. Sales volume for the first quarter of 2021 increased 1.0% compared to the prior year period. Sales to our bottlers and distributors increased compared to the prior year period. This increase was partially offset by declines in sales volume for our fountain foodservice business, which services restaurants and hospitality, which continue to experience softness as a result of COVID-19 with sequential improvements over recent periods as businesses begin to reopen.
Net Sales. Net sales increased 7.2% to $328 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $306 million in the prior year period, reflecting net price realization of 7.2% and favorable FX translation of 0.7%, partially offset by lower volume/mix of 0.7%.

UNCERTAINTIES AND TRENDS AFFECTING OUR BUSINESS
We believe the North American beverage market is influenced by certain key trends and uncertainties. Some of these items, such as the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, increased health consciousness and changes in consumer preferences and economic factors, have previously created and may continue in the future to create category headwinds for a number of our products. Refer to Item 1A, "Risk Factors", of our Annual Report, combined with the Uncertainties and Trends Affecting Liquidity section below, for more information about risks and uncertainties facing us.
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES
The process of preparing our consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the use of estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. Critical accounting estimates are both fundamental to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results and require difficult, subjective or complex estimates and assessments. These estimates and judgments are based on historical experience, future expectations and other factors and assumptions we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. The most significant estimates and judgments are reviewed on an ongoing basis and revised when necessary. These critical accounting estimates are discussed in greater detail in our Annual Report.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Overview
Our financial condition and liquidity remain strong. Net cash provided by operations was $546 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $414 million for the prior year period. Although there is continued uncertainty related to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on our future results, we believe we are uniquely positioned, with our broad portfolio and unmatched distribution network, to successfully navigate through this pandemic, and the steps we have taken over the course of the pandemic to strengthen our balance sheet leave us well positioned to manage our business. We continue to manage all aspects of our business, including, but not limited to, monitoring the financial health of our customers, suppliers and other third-party relationships, implementing gross margin enhancement strategies through our integration and productivity initiatives, and developing new opportunities for growth such as innovation and agreements with partners to distribute brands that are accretive to our portfolio.
The following summarizes our cash activity for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020:
kdp-20210331_g9.jpg
Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents increased $94 million from December 31, 2020 to March 31, 2021 as cash generated from our operations outpaced the impact of dividends and deleveraging.
Cash generated by our foreign operations is generally repatriated to the U.S. periodically as working capital funding requirements in those jurisdictions allow. Foreign cash balances were $177 million and $165 million as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.
36

Principal Sources of Capital Resources
Our principal sources of liquidity are our existing cash and cash equivalents, cash generated from our operations and borrowing capacity currently available under our KDP Revolver and 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement. Additionally, we have an uncommitted commercial paper program where we can issue unsecured commercial paper notes on a private placement basis. Based on our current and anticipated level of operations, we believe that our operating cash flows will be sufficient to meet our anticipated obligations for the next twelve months. To the extent that our operating cash flows are not sufficient to meet our liquidity needs, we may utilize cash on hand or amounts available under our financing arrangements, if necessary.
Sources of Liquidity - Operations
Net cash provided by operating activities increased $132 million for the first quarter of 2021, as compared to first quarter of 2020, driven by the increase in net income adjusted for non-cash items, partially offset by a decline in working capital.
Cash Conversion Cycle
Our cash conversion cycle is defined as DIO and DSO less DPO. The calculation of each component of the cash conversion cycle is provided below:
ComponentCalculation (on a trailing twelve month basis)
DIO(Average inventory divided by cost of sales) * Number of days in the period
DSO(Accounts receivable divided by net sales) * Number of days in the period
DPO(Accounts payable * Number of days in the period) divided by cost of sales and SG&A expenses
Our cash conversion cycle improved 19 days to approximately 66 days as of March 31, 2021 as compared to 47 days in the prior year period. The following table summarizes our cash conversion cycle:
March 31,
20212020
DIO55 52 
DSO33 34 
DPO154 133 
Cash conversion cycle(66)(47)
In future periods, DPO is expected to continue to have a positive impact on our cash conversion cycle as a result of our supplier terms initiative, which has set our customary terms as we integrate our legacy businesses.
Accounts Payable Program
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our cash flow and related liquidity, we work with our suppliers to optimize our terms and conditions, which include the extension of payment terms. Excluding our suppliers who require cash at date of purchase or sale, our current payment terms with our suppliers generally range from 10 to 360 days. We also entered into an agreement with a third party administrator to allow participating suppliers to track payment obligations from us, and if voluntarily elected by the supplier, sell payment obligations from us to financial institutions. Suppliers can sell one or more of our payment obligations at their sole discretion and our rights and obligations to our suppliers are not impacted. We have no economic interest in a supplier’s decision to enter into these agreements and no direct financial relationship with the financial institutions. Our obligations to our suppliers, including amounts due and scheduled payment terms, are not impacted. We have been informed by the third party administrator that as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, $2,777 million and $2,578 million, respectively, of our outstanding payment obligations were voluntarily elected by the supplier and sold to financial institutions. The amounts settled through the program and paid to the financial institutions were $698 million and $557 million for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Impact of the Cares Act
Beginning in the second quarter of 2020, we deferred payments of employer-related payroll taxes as allowed under the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, commonly known as the CARES Act. Payment of at least 50% of the deferred amount is due on January 3, 2022, with the remainder due by January 3, 2023. As of March 31, 2021, we have deferred a total of $59 million in such payments.

37

Sources of Liquidity - Financing
During the first quarter of 2021, we undertook a strategic refinancing and issued $2,150 million aggregate face value of Notes, consisting of $1,150 million aggregate principal amount of 0.750% 2024 Notes, $500 million aggregate principal amount of 2.250% 2031 Notes, and $500 million aggregate principal amount of 3.350% 2051 Notes. The proceeds from the issuance were used to voluntarily prepay several tranches of our existing Notes and our 2019 KDP Term Loan in order to take advantage of current market conditions to refinance our debt maturities at more attractive interest rates, while also extending the duration of our debt.
kdp-20210331_g10.jpg
In March 2021, we also terminated our 2020 364-Day Credit Agreement, which would have expired in April 2021, and replaced it with our 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement, which has a term-out option allowing us to extend the maturity date by converting the facility into a term loan agreement for an additional one-year term.
Additionally, in March 2021, we filed a prospectus supplement with the SEC in order to sell up to 4,300,000 shares to or through Goldman in at-the-market offerings, known as an ATM Program. The ATM Program was completed effective March 15, 2021, and the net proceeds of approximately $140 million were primarily used to cover our obligation to remit cash to local, state and federal tax authorities in connection with the net settlement of vesting restricted stock units during the first quarter of 2021. Commissions and fees paid under the ATM program were less than $1 million for the first quarter of 2021.
Refer to Note 2 of the Notes to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for management's discussion of our financing arrangements.
We also have an active shelf registration statement, filed with the SEC on August 27, 2019, which allows us to issue an indeterminate number or amount of common stock, preferred stock, debt securities and warrants from time to time in one or more offerings at the direction of our Board of Directors.
Debt Ratings
As of March 31, 2021, our credit ratings were as follows:
Rating AgencyLong-Term Debt RatingCommercial Paper RatingOutlookDate of Last Change
Moody'sBaa2P-2StableFebruary 26, 2021
S&PBBBA-2StableMay 14, 2018
These debt and commercial paper ratings impact the interest we pay on our financing arrangements. A downgrade of one or both of our debt and commercial paper ratings could increase our interest expense and decrease the cash available to fund anticipated obligations.
As of March 31, 2021, we were in compliance with all debt covenants and we have no reason to believe that we will be unable to satisfy these covenants.
Principal Uses of Capital Resources
Our principal uses of our capital resources following the DPS Merger are deleveraging, providing shareholder return to our investors through dividends, and investing in KDP to capture market share and drive growth through innovation and routes to market.
Deleveraging and Other Debt Repayments
In 2018, management set deleveraging targets for a 2-3 year time period following the DPS Merger in order to optimize our balance sheet, and we continue to be focused on achieving those targets within that time frame. Since the DPS Merger, we have made net repayments of $3,295 million of our Notes, our commercial paper and our other credit agreements, including $120 million for the first quarter of 2021.
38

In May 2021, our $1,750 million 2021 Merger Notes will be repaid at maturity, using cash generated from operations and, as needed, issuance of variable-rate debt available to us through the various KDP Credit Agreements, including commercial paper.
Dividends
In February 2021, we announced that our Board of Directors approved a 25% increase in our annualized dividend rate to $0.75 per share, from the current annualized rate of $0.60 per share, effective with the Company’s regular quarterly dividend to be announced in the second quarter of 2021, subject to official declaration by the Board of Directors. We additionally announced that our Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share, payable in U.S. dollars, on our common stock. The regular quarterly dividend was paid on April 15, 2021 to shareholders of record on April 1, 2021.
Capital Expenditures
We have significantly invested in state-of-the-art manufacturing and warehousing facilities, including expansive investments in new facilities in Spartanburg, South Carolina; Newbridge, Ireland; and Allentown, Pennsylvania, in order to optimize our supply chain network through integration and productivity projects.
Purchases of property, plant and equipment were $95 million and $151 million for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Capital expenditures, which includes both purchases of property, plant and equipment and amounts included in accounts payable and accrued expenses, for the first quarter of 2021 primarily related to our continued investment in the build-out of our Allentown manufacturing facility, the build out of the Ireland facility and build-out of our Spartanburg manufacturing facility. Capital expenditures included in accounts payable and accrued expenses were $259 million for the first quarter of 2021, which primarily related to these investments.
Capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2020 primarily related to manufacturing equipment, our continued investment in the build-out of our Spartanburg facility and Allentown facility, the purchase of real estate in Ireland and logistics equipment. Capital expenditures included in accounts payable and accrued expenses was $177 million for the first quarter of 2020, which primarily related to these investments.
As we begin to move past the three-year period after the DPS Merger, we expect that total capital expenditures will be approximately 3% of net sales on an annualized basis.
Purchases of Intangible Assets
We have invested in the expansion of our DSD network through transactions with strategic independent bottlers to ensure competitive distribution scale for our brands. These transactions are generally accounted for as an asset acquisition, as the majority of the transaction price represents the reacquisition of our distribution rights. Purchases of intangible assets were $12 million and $15 million for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Uncertainties and Trends Affecting Liquidity
Disruptions in financial and credit markets, including those caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, may impact our ability to manage normal commercial relationships with our customers, suppliers and creditors. These disruptions could have a negative impact on the ability of our customers to timely pay their obligations to us, thus reducing our cash flow, or the ability of our vendors to timely supply materials.
Customer and consumer demand for our products may also be impacted by all risk factors discussed under "Risk Factors" in Part 1, Item 1A of our Annual Report, as well as subsequent filings with the SEC, that could have a material effect on production, delivery and consumption of our products in the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean or Canada, which could result in a reduction in our sales volume.
39

We believe that the following events, trends and uncertainties may also impact liquidity:
Our intention to drive significant cash flow generation to enable rapid deleveraging within three years from the DPS Merger;
Our ability to access our committed financing arrangements, including our KDP Revolver and our 2021 364-Day Credit Agreement;
Our ability to issue unsecured uncommitted commercial paper notes on a private placement basis up to a maximum aggregate amount outstanding at any time of $2,400 million;
A significant downgrade in our credit ratings could limit i) a financial institution's willingness to participate in our accounts payable program and reduce the attractiveness of the accounts payable program to participating suppliers who may sell payment obligations from us to financial institutions, which could impact our accounts payable program; or ii) our ability to issue debt at terms that are favorable to us;
Our continued payment of dividends;
Our continued capital expenditures;
Future mergers or acquisitions, which may include brand ownership companies, regional bottling companies, distributors and/or distribution rights to further extend our geographic coverage;
Future equity investments;
Seasonality of our operating cash flows, which could impact short-term liquidity; and
Fluctuations in our tax obligations.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, and other companies may not define these non-GAAP financial measures in the same way. The adjusted measures are not substitutes for their comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, such as income from operations, net income, diluted EPS, or other measures prescribed by U.S. GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP financial measures. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to U.S. GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company’s budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company’s operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company.
For the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, we define our Adjusted non-GAAP financial measures as certain financial statement captions and metrics adjusted for certain items affecting comparability. The items affecting comparability are defined below.
Items affecting comparability: Defined as certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods, adjusted for the tax impact as applicable. Tax impact is determined based upon an approximate rate for each item. For each period, management adjusts for (i) the unrealized mark-to-market impact of derivative instruments not designated as hedges in accordance with U.S. GAAP and do not have an offsetting risk reflected within the financial results; (ii) the amortization associated with definite-lived intangible assets; (iii) the amortization of the deferred financing costs associated with the DPS Merger; (iv) the amortization of the fair value adjustment of the senior unsecured notes obtained as a result of the DPS Merger; (v) stock compensation expense and the associated windfall tax benefit attributable to the matching awards made to employees who made an initial investment in KDP; and (vi) other certain items that are excluded for comparison purposes to prior year periods.
For the first quarter of 2021, the other certain items excluded for comparison purposes include (i) restructuring and integration expenses related to significant business combinations; (ii) productivity expenses; (iii) costs related to significant non-routine legal matters; (iv) the loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the redemption of debt; (v) incremental costs to our operations related to risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic; and (vi) gains from insurance recoveries related to the February 2019 organized malware attack on our business operation networks in the Coffee Systems segment.
For the first quarter of 2020, the other certain items excluded for comparison purposes include (i) restructuring and integration expenses related to significant business combinations; (ii) productivity expenses; (iii) transaction costs for significant business combinations (completed or abandoned) excluding the DPS Merger; (iv) costs related to significant non-routine legal matters; (v) the loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the redemption of debt, (vi) incremental costs to our operations related to risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and (vii) impairment recognized on equity method investment with Bedford.
Incremental costs to our operations related to risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic include incremental expenses incurred to either maintain the health and safety of our front-line employees or temporarily increase compensation to such employees to ensure essential operations continue during the pandemic. We believe removing these costs reflects how management views our business results on a consistent basis. See Impact of COVID-19 on our Financial Statements for further information.
For the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, the supplemental financial data set forth below includes reconciliations of Adjusted income from operations, Adjusted interest expense, Adjusted provision for income taxes, Adjusted net income attributable to KDP and Adjusted diluted EPS to the applicable financial measure presented in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statement for the same period.

ITEM 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
We are exposed to market risks arising from changes in market rates and prices, including movements in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and commodity prices. From time to time, we may enter into derivatives or other financial instruments to hedge or mitigate commercial risks. We do not enter into derivative instruments for speculation, investing or trading.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE RISK
The majority of our net sales, expenses and capital purchases are transacted in U.S. dollars. However, we have exposure with respect to foreign exchange rate fluctuations. Our primary exposure to foreign exchange rates is the Canadian dollar and Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar. Exchange rate gains or losses related to foreign currency transactions are recognized as transaction gains or losses in our income statement as incurred. As of March 31, 2021, the impact to our income from operations of a 10% change (up or down) in exchange rates is estimated to be an increase or decrease of approximately $41 million on an annual basis.
We use derivative instruments such as foreign exchange forward contracts to manage a portion of our exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates. As of March 31, 2021, we had derivative contracts outstanding with a notional value of $874 million maturing at various dates through September 25, 2024.
INTEREST RATE RISK
We centrally manage our debt portfolio through the use of interest rate swaps and monitor our mix of fixed-rate and variable-rate debt. As of March 31, 2021, the carrying value of our fixed-rate debt, excluding lease obligations, was $13,465 million and we had no variable-rate debt. Although we had no variable-rate debt outstanding as of March 31, 2021, we held variable-rate debt throughout the first quarter of 2021 in the form of commercial paper, and we intend to continue utilizing variable-rate debt throughout 2021. As of March 31, 2021, the total notional value of receive-variable, pay-fixed interest rate swaps was $450 million. As a result of these factors, there was no interest rate risk associated with our debt balances based on debt levels as of March 31, 2021.
COMMODITY RISKS
We are subject to market risks with respect to commodities because our ability to recover increased costs through higher pricing may be limited by the competitive environment in which we operate. Our principal commodities risks relate to our purchases of coffee beans, PET, aluminum, diesel fuel, corn (for high fructose corn syrup), apple juice concentrate, apples, sucrose and natural gas (for use in processing and packaging).    
We utilize commodities derivative instruments and supplier pricing agreements to hedge the risk of adverse movements in commodity prices for limited time periods for certain commodities. As of March 31, 2021, we had derivative contracts outstanding with a notional value of $450 million maturing at various dates through January 8, 2024. The fair market value of these contracts as of March 31, 2021 was a net asset of $87 million.
As of March 31, 2021, the impact of a 10% change (up or down) in market prices for these commodities where the risk of adverse movements has not been hedged is estimated to have a $8 million impact to our income from operations for the remainder of the year ending December 31, 2021.

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures
EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Based on evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has concluded that, as of March 31, 2021, our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to (i) provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Exchange Act filings is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the SEC's rules and forms, and (ii) ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act are accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act) occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1. Legal Proceedings
We are occasionally subject to litigation or other legal proceedings relating to our business. See Note 15 of the Notes to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information related to commitments and contingencies, which is incorporated herein by reference.
BODYARMOR LITIGATION
On March 6, 2019, ABC, a subsidiary of KDP, filed suit against BodyArmor and Mike Repole in the Superior Court for the State of Delaware. The complaint asserted claims for breach of contract and promissory estoppel against BodyArmor and asserted a claim for tortious interference against Mr. Repole, in each case in connection with BodyArmor's attempted early termination of the distribution contract between BodyArmor and ABC. The complaint seeks monetary damages relating to lost distribution revenues, disgorgement of profits, liquidated and punitive damages, attorneys' fees and costs. ABC filed an amended complaint, which added Coca-Cola as a defendant to the suit and asserted a claim for tortious interference against Coca-Cola. In December 2020, the court dismissed the individual claim against Mr. Repole, but ABC's claims against BodyArmor and Coca-Cola continue. Fact and expert discovery in the case is ongoing and a trial date is set for February 2022. ABC intends to continue to vigorously prosecute the action. We are unable to predict the outcome of the lawsuit, the potential recovery, if any, associated with the resolution of the lawsuit or any potential effect it may have on us or our operations.
ITEM 1A. Risk Factors
There have been no material changes from the risk factors set forth in Part I, Item 1A in our Annual Report.
