Change in Method of Accounting for Pension and Postretirement Benefits

In fiscal 2016, Campbell elected to change its method of accounting for its defined benefit pension and postretirement plans in order to provide greater transparency into financial results. This change has no impact on cash flow. Under the new method, actuarial gains and losses will be recognized right away in the Merged Statements of Earnings following a measurement date rather than amortized over several years.

The change in accounting method has been retrospectively applied to prior periods. The periodic mark-to-market adjustment will be reflected as an item impacting comparability and excluded from adjusted results.

CEO Comments

Denise Morrison, Campbell’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We’re encouraged by our first-quarter performance. While organic sales for the quarter were comparable to a solid prior year, we recognize that we have more work ahead to improve our growth trajectory. I am particularly happy that we delivered a third successive quarter of adjusted gross margin expansion with improved execution in our supply chain. We drove strong adjusted EBIT and EPS performance across the company. Given an improved margin outlook for the year, we raised guidance for adjusted EBIT and EPS, while we lowered sales guidance to reflect raised currency headwinds.

“We began fiscal 2016 after successfully implementing a number of changes to align our enterprise structure with our strategy. Most noteworthy among those changes were the formation of three new divisions with clear portfolio roles and the roll-out of a major cost savings initiative that comprised streamlining our organization, the launch of an Integrated Global Services organization and initiating zero-based budgeting. In addition, we have revised our reporting segments to reflect our new structure. We have made clear and meaningful progress and commence the new fiscal year better positioned to execute against our planned imperatives.”

Campbell Soup Company, together with its auxiliaries, manufactures and markets convenience food products. It operates through U.S. Simple Meals; Global Baking and Snacking; International Simple Meals and Beverages; U.S. Beverages; and Bolthouse and Foodservice segments.
