“In the third quarter Hershey’s efforts were focused on ensuring successful execution of our seasonal plans, which are on track and should result in good Halloween and Holiday seasons,” said John P. Bilbrey, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Hershey Company. “Net sales raised 2.0% in the third quarter, not taking into account unfavorable foreign currency translation. We were very happy with North America gross margin expansion that resulted in solid operating profit growth. U.S. net sales were below expectations due to lower than predictable candy, mint and gum (CMG) retail takeaway in the third quarter. This softness also influenced broader mainstream snacks, where consumption trends during the quarter were less than the June year-to-date improvement. It appears that CMG and broader snacks marketplace performance in the quarter was pressured by lower consumer trips and a decline of in-store merchandising and programming at some retailers. However, in October, CMG in-store merchandising and programming has been executed which, while preliminary, should result in Hershey share gains in the important Halloween season.”
