PepsiCo Reports Strong Earnings

10/19/2006
PepsiCo reported a 73-percent increase in third-quarter earnings per share, thanks in part to a strong showing in the snacks business.

Frito-Lay North America net revenue increased by 7percent on gains across its key brands. Net revenue growth was driven by double-digit gains in trademark Tostitos, SunChips and Quaker snacks; mid-single-digit growth in trademark Lay's and Cheetos; and low-single-digit growth in trademark Doritos. Volume increased 3 percent in salty snacks and mid-single-digits in other macro snacks. Net revenue growth benefited from the volume gains and from effective net pricing. The Stacy's Pita Chip Company acquisition contributed approximately 0.5 percentage points to both revenue and volume growth.
