    Changes Related to Accounting for Pensions and Post-Retirement Benefit Plans


    In an effort to increase the visibility into financial results, the company has chosen to adopt a new method for accounting for pensions; this change has no impact on cash flow. As a consequence of the change, the company recognized a year-end mark-to-market charge and removed pension-related amortization expense from results. These changes impacted both operating profit and earnings per share. Tables with revised historical figures for fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012 are provided in this release.

    BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kellogg Company (NYSE:K) today announced that fourth quarter reported net sales increased to $3.6 billion, an 18.2 percent increase from the fourth quarter of 2011. Internal net sales, which exclude the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, divestitures and integration costs, increased by 5.3 percent. Full-year 2012 reported net sales increased by 7.6 percent to $14.2 billion, an increase of $999 million from the full-year 2011 results. Full-year internal net sales increased by 2.5 percent.

    Reported operating profit (which includes the impact of the accounting change) was $3.0 million in the fourth-quarter of 2012 and $1.6 billion for the full year. Comparable internal operating profit, which excludes the impact of changes to the accounting for pensions and post-retirement plans, the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, divestitures and integration costs declined by 7.6 percent. This decline was the result of continued inflation in cost of goods sold, a double-digit increase in investment in brand building, and the timing of up-front costs. Full-year comparable internal operating profit declined by 5.9 percent. This decline was as anticipated and resulted from continued high-levels of inflation in cost of goods sold, a limited recall in the third quarter of 2012, and increased investment in brand building.
