Coca Cola : 3Q 20 GAAP Non-GAAP Schedule for Earnings Release

10/22/2020 | 07:05am EST

THE COCA-COLA COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES

Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(UNAUDITED)

The company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP" or referred to herein as "reported"). To supplement our consolidated financial statements reported on a GAAP basis, we provide the following non-GAAP financial measures: "comparable net revenues", "comparable currency neutral net revenues", "organic revenues", "comparable operating margin", "underlying operating margin", "comparable operating income", "comparable currency neutral operating income", "comparable EPS", "comparable currency neutral EPS", "underlying effective tax rate" and "free cash flow", each of which are defined below. Management believes these non- GAAP financial measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing our underlying business performance and trends. Further, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures also enhance investors' ability to compare period-to-period financial results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures do not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP information are also included below. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, compensation and planning decisions and in evaluating the company's performance. Disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors and management to view our operating results excluding the impact of items that are not reflective of the underlying operating performance.

DEFINITIONS

  • "Currency neutral operating results" are determined by dividing or multiplying, as appropriate, our current period actual U.S. dollar operating results, by the current period actual exchange rates (that include the impact of current period currency hedging activities), to derive our current period local currency operating results. We then multiply or divide, as appropriate, the derived current period local currency operating results by the foreign currency exchange rates (that also include the impact of the comparable prior period currency hedging activities) used to translate the company's financial statements in the comparable prior year period to determine what the current period U.S. dollar operating results would have been if the foreign currency exchange rates had not changed from the comparable prior year period.
  • "Structural changes" generally refer to acquisitions and divestitures of bottling operations including the impact of intercompany transactions among our operating segments. In 2019, the company acquired controlling interests in bottling operations in Zambia, Eswatini and Kenya. The impact of these acquisitions has been included as a structural change in our analysis of net operating revenues on a consolidated basis as well as for the Europe, Middle East and Africa and Bottling Investments operating segments. In 2019, the company refranchised certain of its bottling operations in India. The impact of this refranchising activity has been included as a structural change in our analysis of net operating revenues on a consolidated basis as well as for the Asia Pacific and Bottling Investments operating segments.
  • "Comparable net revenues" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below). "Comparable currency neutral net revenues" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below) as well as the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Management believes the comparable net revenues (non-GAAP) growth measure and the comparable currency neutral net revenues (non-GAAP) growth measure provide investors with useful supplemental information to enhance their understanding of the company's revenue performance and trends by improving their ability to compare our period- to-period results. "Organic revenues" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and structural changes, as applicable, and the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Management believes the organic revenue (non-GAAP) growth measure provides users with useful supplemental information regarding the company's ongoing revenue performance and trends by presenting revenue growth excluding the impact of foreign exchange as well as the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and structural changes. The adjustments related to acquisitions, divestitures and structural changes for the three and nine months ended September 25, 2020 and September 27, 2019 consisted of the structural changes discussed above. Additionally, in 2020, the company acquired the remaining equity ownership interest in fairlife, LLC ("fairlife"). The impact on revenues for fairlife products not previously sold by the

company has been included in acquisitions and divestitures in our analysis of net operating revenues on a consolidated basis as well as for the North America operating segment. Also in 2020, the company discontinued our Odwalla juice business. The impact of discontinuing our Odwalla juice business has been included in acquisitions, divestitures and structural changes in our analysis of net operating revenues on a consolidated basis as well as for the North America operating segment. In 2019, the company acquired the remaining equity ownership interest in C.H.I. Limited ("CHI"). The impact of this acquisition has been included in acquisitions and divestitures in our analysis of net operating revenues on a consolidated basis as well as for the Europe, Middle East and Africa operating segment for the nine months ended September 25, 2020.

  • "Comparable operating income" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below). "Comparable currency neutral operating income" is a non- GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below) and the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. "Comparable operating margin" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below). "Underlying operating margin" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below), the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, and the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and structural changes, as applicable. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company's performance and make resource allocation decisions. Further, management believes the comparable operating income (non-GAAP) growth measure, comparable currency neutral operating income (non-GAAP) growth measure, comparable operating margin (non- GAAP) measure and underlying operating margin (non-GAAP) measure enhance its ability to communicate the underlying operating results and provide investors with useful supplemental information to enhance their understanding of the company's underlying business performance and trends by improving their ability to compare our period-to-period financial results.
  • "Comparable EPS" and "comparable currency neutral EPS" are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or have otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below). Comparable currency neutral EPS (non-GAAP) has also been adjusted for the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
    Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company's performance and make resource allocation decisions. Further, management believes the comparable EPS (non-GAAP) and comparable currency neutral EPS (non-GAAP) growth measures enhance its ability to communicate the underlying operating results and provide investors with useful supplemental information to enhance their understanding of the company's underlying business performance and trends by improving their ability to compare our period-to-period financial results.
  • "Underlying effective tax rate" is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the estimated annual effective income tax rate on income before income taxes, which excludes or has otherwise been adjusted for items impacting comparability (discussed further below).
  • "Free cash flow" is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to evaluate the company's performance and make resource allocation decisions.

ITEMS IMPACTING COMPARABILITY

The following information is provided to give qualitative and quantitative information related to items impacting comparability. Items impacting comparability are not defined terms within GAAP. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We determine which items to consider as "items impacting comparability" based on how management views our business; makes financial, operating, compensation and planning decisions; and evaluates the company's ongoing performance. Items such as charges, gains and accounting changes which are viewed by management as impacting only the current period or the comparable period, but not both, or as pertaining to different and unrelated underlying activities or events across comparable periods, are generally considered "items impacting comparability." Items impacting comparability include, but are not limited to, asset impairments, charges related to our strategic realignment initiatives, charges related to our productivity and reinvestment initiatives, and transaction gains/losses, in each case when exceeding a U.S. dollar threshold. Also included are our proportionate share of similar items incurred by our equity method investees, timing

differences related to our economic (non-designated) hedging activities, and timing differences related to unrealized mark- to-market adjustments of equity securities and trading debt securities, regardless of size. In addition, we provide the impact that changes in foreign currency exchange rates had on our financial results ("currency neutral operating results" defined above).

Asset Impairments

During the nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recorded impairment charges of $160 million related to discontinuing our Odwalla juice business and recorded an impairment charge of $55 million related to a trademark in North America, which was primarily driven by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, revised projections of future operating results and a change in brand focus in the company's portfolio. The company also recorded an other-than- temporary impairment charge of $38 million related to one of our equity method investees in Latin America and an impairment charge of $26 million associated with an investment in an equity security without a readily determinable fair value. These impairment charges were primarily driven by revised projections of future operating results. The company also recorded a charge of $13 million for the impairment of goodwill in our bottling operations in the Middle East, which was primarily driven by a recent change in sugar tax laws, and recorded impairment charges totaling $10 million related to several trademarks in Latin America, which were primarily driven by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and management's view of the timing and extent of recovery.

During the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded other-than-temporary impairment charges of $120 million and $406 million, respectively, related to Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Holdings Inc. ("CCBJHI"), an equity method investee. Based on the length of time and the extent to which the market value of our investment in CCBJHI was less than our carrying value and the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, management determined that the decline in fair value was other than temporary in nature. The company also recorded other-than- temporary impairment charges of $255 million related to certain equity method investees in the Middle East. These impairment charges were primarily driven by revised projections of future operating results largely related to instability in the region and changes in local excise taxes. The company also recorded an impairment charge of $42 million related to a trademark in Asia Pacific, which was primarily driven by revised projections of future operating results for the trademark.

During the nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded an other-than-temporary impairment charge of $57 million related to one of our equity method investees in North America. This impairment charge was primarily driven by revised projections of future operating results. The company also recorded an other-than-temporary impairment charge of $49 million related to one of our equity method investees in Latin America. This impairment charge was primarily driven by revised projections of future operating results.

Strategic Realignment

In August 2020, the company announced strategic steps to transform our organizational structure in an effort to better enable us to capture growth in the fast-changing marketplace. The company is building a networked global organization comprised of operating units, category leads, Platform Services and the center. The operating units will be highly interconnected with more consistency in the structure and a focus on eliminating duplication of resources and scaling new products more quickly. The global marketing category leadership teams will primarily focus on innovation, marketing efficiency and effectiveness. The organizational structure will also include the center, which will provide strategy, governance and scale for global initiatives. The operating units, global marketing category leadership teams, and the center will be supported by Platform Services, which will focus on providing efficient and scaled global services and capabilities including, but not limited to, governance, transactional work, data management, consumer analytics, digital commerce and social/digital hubs. During the three and nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recorded charges of $343 million primarily related to severance costs associated with our strategic realignment initiatives.

Productivity and Reinvestment

During the three and nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recorded charges of $10 million and

$71 million, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded charges of $61 million and $184 million, respectively. These charges were related to our productivity and reinvestment initiatives. The costs incurred in 2019 were related to initiatives focused on four key areas: restructuring the company's global supply chain; implementing zero-based work, an evolution of zero-based budget principles across the organization; streamlining

and simplifying the company's operating model; and further driving increased discipline and efficiency in direct marketing investments. Under this operating model, our business units are supported by an expanded enabling services organization and a corporate center focused on a few strategic initiatives, policy and governance. The expanded enabling services organization focuses on both simplifying and standardizing key transactional processes and providing support to business units through global centers of excellence. The savings realized from the program enable the company to fund marketing initiatives and innovation required to deliver sustainable net revenue growth. The savings also support margin expansion and increased returns on invested capital over time. The costs incurred in 2020 were primarily related to certain remaining initiatives designed to further simplify and standardize our enabling services organization.

Equity Investees

During the three and nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recorded net charges of $27 million and $128 million, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded net charges of $39 million and $107 million, respectively. These amounts represent the company's proportionate share of significant operating and nonoperating items recorded by certain of our equity method investees.

Transaction Gains/Losses

During the three and nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recorded charges of $18 million and

$47 million, respectively, related to the remeasurement of our contingent consideration liability to fair value in conjunction with the fairlife acquisition.

During the nine months ended September 25, 2020, the company recognized a gain of $902 million in conjunction with our acquisition of the remaining equity ownership interest in fairlife, which resulted from the remeasurement of our previously held equity interest in fairlife to fair value. The company also recognized a gain of $23 million related to the sale of a portion of our ownership interest in certain unconsolidated bottling operations and a gain of $2 million related to the 2017 refranchising of our China bottling operations, resulting from post-closing adjustments.

During the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recognized a gain of $739 million on the sale of a retail and office building in New York City. The company also recorded net charges of $103 million and $107 million related to the refranchising of certain bottling territories in North America, primarily resulting from post-closing adjustments, during the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded charges of $21 million and $61 million, respectively, primarily related to costs incurred to refranchise certain of our North America bottling operations. These costs include, among other items, internal and external costs for individuals directly working on the refranchising efforts, severance, special termination benefits, and costs associated with the implementation of information technology systems to facilitate consistent data standards and availability throughout our bottling systems.

During the nine months ended September 27, 2019, the company recorded an adjustment to reduce the carrying amount of Coca-Cola Beverages Africa Proprietary Limited's ("CCBA") fixed assets and definite-lived intangible assets by $160 million as a result of the company's change in plans for CCBA as it now intends to maintain its controlling stake in CCBA for the foreseeable future. The company also recognized a loss of $121 million in conjunction with our acquisition of the remaining equity ownership interest in CHI, which included the remeasurement of our previously held equity interest in CHI to fair value and the reversal of the related cumulative translation adjustments and recorded a charge of $4 million, primarily related to payments made to certain of our unconsolidated bottling partners in North America in order to convert their bottling agreements to a comprehensive beverage agreement with additional requirements. The company also recorded charges of $8 million for noncapitalizable transaction costs associated with pending and closed transactions, charges of $46 million for costs associated with the purchase of Costa Limited, and a gain of $39 million related to the sale of a portion of our equity ownership interest in Embotelladora Andina S.A.
