Third Quarter Commentary

  • Net revenues increased 2.1 percent, driven by Organic Net Revenue growth and currency tailwinds. Organic Net Revenue increased 2.8 percent, driven by the continued strength of our Power Brands as well as strong performance in Europe and emerging markets. The company also realized an estimated net positive impact of 60 basis points from delayed shipments that moved to the third quarter as the company recovered from the malware incident.
     
  • Gross profit margin was 39.1 percent, an increase of 20 basis points, driven primarily by lower Restructuring Program implementation costs and favorable mark-to-market comparisons, partially offset by malware-related expenses. Adjusted Gross Profit margin was 39.5 percent, a decrease of 60 basis points, driven by higher input costs and select trade investments in some key markets, partially offset by continued net productivity gains.
     
  • Operating income margin was 18.1 percent, up 710 basis points, driven primarily by the gain on divestiture, the benefit from resolution of a Brazilian indirect tax matter and lower Restructuring Program costs.  Adjusted Operating Income margin increased 130 basis points to 16.9 percent, due primarily to lower overhead costs driven by continued cost reduction efforts.
     
  • Diluted EPS was $0.65, up 86 percent, driven primarily by the gain on divestiture, the benefit from resolution of a Brazilian indirect tax matter, lower Restructuring Program costs and operating gains.
     
  • Adjusted EPS was $0.57 and grew 12 percent on a constant-currency basis, driven primarily by operating gains.
     
  • Capital Return: The company repurchased more than $700 million of its common stock and paid approximately $300 million in cash dividends.

2017 Outlook
Mondelēz International provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis, as the company cannot predict some elements that are included in reported GAAP results, including the impact of foreign exchange.  Refer to the Outlook section in the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures below for more details.

For 2017, the company now expects Organic Net Revenue growth to be approximately 1 percent given the larger than expected impact from the malware incident. The company still expects Adjusted Operating Income margin in the mid-16 percent range and double-digit Adjusted EPS growth on a constant-currency basis. The company estimates full year currency translation would not result in a change to net revenue growth or Adjusted EPS3. In addition, the company still expects Free Cash Flow1 of approximately $2 billion.

Conference Call
Mondelēz International will host a conference call for investors with accompanying slides to review its results at 5 p.m. ET today.  A listen-only webcast will be provided at www.mondelezinternational.com. An archive of the webcast will be available on the company's web site.  The company will be live tweeting the event at www.twitter.com/MDLZ.

Mondelēz International, Inc. 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"). However, management believes that also presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures provides additional information to facilitate comparison of the company's historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results, and provides additional transparency on how the company evaluates its business. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the company's performance. The company also believes that presenting these measures allows investors to view its performance using the same measures that the company uses in evaluating its financial and business performance and trends.

The company considers quantitative and qualitative factors in assessing whether to adjust for the impact of items that may be significant or that could affect an understanding of its ongoing financial and business performance and trends. The adjustments generally fall within the following categories: acquisition & divestiture activities, gains and losses on intangible asset sales and non-cash impairments, major program restructuring activities, constant currency and related adjustments, major program financing and hedging activities and other major items affecting comparability of operating results.  See below for a description of adjustments to the company's U.S. GAAP financial measures included herein.

Non-GAAP information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company's non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as or comparable to similar non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.

Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are not accessible and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, the company has not provided that information with regard to the non-GAAP financial measures in the company's outlook. Refer to the Outlook section below for more details.

DEFINITIONS OF THE COMPANY'S NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The company's non-GAAP financial measures and corresponding metrics reflect how the company evaluates its operating results currently and provide improved comparability of operating results. As new events or circumstances arise, these definitions could change over time. When these definitions change, the company provides the updated definitions and presents the related non-GAAP historical results on a comparable basis (1).

  • "Organic Net Revenue" is defined as net revenues excluding the impacts of acquisitions; divestitures (2); the historical global coffee business (3); the historical Venezuelan operations; accounting calendar changes; and currency rate fluctuations (4). The company believes that Organic Net Revenue reflects the underlying growth from the ongoing activities of its business and provides improved comparability of results. The company also evaluates Organic Net Revenue growth from emerging markets and its Power Brands.
  • "Adjusted Gross Profit" is defined as gross profit excluding the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program (5); the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program (5); acquisition integration costs; incremental costs associated with the Jacobs Douwe Egberts ("JDE") coffee business transactions; the operating results of divestitures (2); the historical coffee business operating results (3); the historical Venezuelan operating results; and mark-to-market impacts from commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivative contracts (6). The company also presents "Adjusted Gross Profit margin," which is subject to the same adjustments as Adjusted Gross Profit.   The company believes that Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Profit margin provide improved comparability of underlying operating results. The company also evaluates growth in the company's Adjusted Gross Profit on a constant currency basis (4).
  • "Adjusted Operating Income" and "Adjusted Segment Operating Income" are defined as operating income (or segment operating income) excluding the impacts of the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program (5); the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program (5); the Venezuela remeasurement and deconsolidation losses and historical operating results; gains or losses (including non-cash impairment charges) on goodwill and intangible assets; divestiture (2) or acquisition gains or losses and related integration and acquisition costs; the JDE coffee business transactions (3) gain and net incremental costs; the operating results of divestitures (2); the historical global coffee business operating results (3); mark-to-market impacts from commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivative contracts (6); equity method investment earnings historically reported within operating income (7); benefits from resolution of tax matters (8); and incremental expenses related to the malware incident. The company also presents "Adjusted Operating Income margin" and "Adjusted Segment Operating Income margin," which are subject to the same adjustments as Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income. The company believes that Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Segment Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income margin and Adjusted Segment Operating Income margin provide improved comparability of underlying operating results. The company also evaluates growth in the company's Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income on a constant currency basis (4).
  • "Adjusted EPS" is defined as diluted EPS attributable to Mondelēz International from continuing operations excluding the impacts of the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program (5); the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program (5); the Venezuela remeasurement and deconsolidation losses and historical operating results; losses on debt extinguishment and related expenses; gains or losses (including non-cash impairment charges) on goodwill and intangible assets; divestiture (2) or acquisition gains or losses and related integration and acquisition costs; the JDE coffee business transactions (3) gain, transaction hedging gains or losses and net incremental costs; gain on the equity method investment exchange; net earnings from divestitures (2); mark-to-market impacts from commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivative contracts (6); gains or losses on interest rate swaps no longer designated as accounting cash flow hedges due to changed financing and hedging plans; benefits from resolution of tax matters (8); and incremental expenses related to the malware incident. Similarly, within Adjusted EPS, the company's equity method investment net earnings exclude its proportionate share of its investees' unusual or infrequent items (9), such as acquisition and divestiture-related costs and restructuring program costs. The tax impact of each of the items excluded from the company's GAAP results was computed based on the facts and tax assumptions associated with each item and such impacts have also been excluded from Adjusted EPS. The company believes that Adjusted EPS provides improved comparability of underlying operating results. The company also evaluates growth in the company's Adjusted EPS on a constant currency basis (4).
  • "Free Cash Flow" is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. As Free Cash Flow is the company's primary measure used to monitor its cash flow performance, the company believes this non-GAAP measure provides investors additional useful information when evaluating its cash from operating activities.

    (1) When items no longer impact the company's current or future presentation of non-GAAP operating results, the company removes these items from its non-GAAP definitions. During 2017, the company added to the non-GAAP definitions the exclusion of benefits from the resolution of tax matters (see footnote (8) below) and the exclusion of incremental expenses related to the malware incident.

    (2) Divestitures include completed sales of businesses and exits of major product lines upon completion of a sale or licensing agreement. On August 17, 2017, the company signed two agreements with the Kraft Heinz Company ("KHC") to terminate the licenses of certain KHC-owned brands used in the company's grocery business within its Europe region and to transfer to KHC inventory and certain other assets. During the third and fourth quarter, the first and second transactions closed. Also on October 2, 2017, the company completed the sale of one of its equity method investments. As these transactions were substantially completed as of September 30, 2017, the company removed the historical results related to these transactions from its Organic Net Revenue and adjusted results for all periods presented.

    (3) The company continues to have an ongoing interest in the legacy coffee business it deconsolidated in 2015 as part of the JDE coffee business transactions. For historical periods prior to the July 15, 2015 coffee business deconsolidation, the company has reclassified any net revenue or operating income from the historical coffee business and included them where the coffee equity method investment earnings are presented within Adjusted EPS.  As such, Organic Net Revenue, Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Operating Income in all periods do not include the results of the company's legacy coffee businesses, which are shown within Adjusted EPS only.

    (4) Constant currency operating results are calculated by dividing or multiplying, as appropriate, the current-period local currency operating results by the currency exchange rates used to translate the financial statements in the comparable prior-year period to determine what the current-period U.S. dollar operating results would have been if the currency exchange rate had not changed from the comparable prior-year period.

    (5) Non-GAAP adjustments related to the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program reflect costs incurred that relate to the objectives of the company's program to transform its supply chain network and organizational structure. Costs that do not meet the program objectives are not reflected in the non-GAAP adjustments. Refer to the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 for more information on the 2012-2014 Restructuring Program.

    (6) During the third quarter of 2016, the company began to exclude unrealized gains and losses (mark-to-market impacts) from outstanding commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivatives from its non-GAAP earnings measures until such time that the related exposures impact its operating results. Since the company purchases commodity and forecasted currency contracts to mitigate price volatility primarily for inventory requirements in future periods, the company made this adjustment to remove the volatility of these future inventory purchases on current operating results to facilitate comparisons of its underlying operating performance across periods. The company also discontinued designating commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivatives for hedge accounting treatment. To facilitate comparisons of the company's underlying operating results, the company has recast all historical non-GAAP earnings measures to exclude the mark-to-market impacts.

    (7) Historically, the company has recorded income from equity method investments within its operating income as these investments operated as extensions of the company's base business. Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, the company began to record the earnings from its equity method investments in after-tax equity method investment earnings outside of operating income following the deconsolidation of its coffee business. Refer to Note 1, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 for more information.

    (8) During the first nine months of 2017, the company recorded benefits from the settlement of a pre-acquisition Cadbury tax matter and from the reversal of tax liabilities in connection with the resolution of a Brazilian indirect tax matter.

    (9) The company has excluded its proportionate share of its equity method investees' unusual or infrequent items in order to provide investors with a comparable view of its performance across periods.  Although the company has shareholder rights and board representation commensurate with its ownership interests in its equity method investees and reviews the underlying operating results and unusual or infrequent items with them each reporting period, the company does not have direct control over the operations or resulting revenue and expenses. The company's use of equity method investment net earnings on an adjusted basis is not intended to imply that the company has any such control.  The company's GAAP "diluted EPS attributable to Mondelēz International from continuing operations" includes all of its investees' unusual and infrequent items.

See the attached schedules for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures referred to above to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

SEGMENT OPERATING INCOME
The company uses segment operating income to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. The company believes it is appropriate to disclose this measure to help investors analyze segment performance and trends. Segment operating income excludes unrealized gains and losses on hedging activities (which are a component of cost of sales), general corporate expenses (which are a component of selling, general and administrative expenses), amortization of intangibles and gains and losses on divestitures in all periods presented. The company excludes these items from segment operating income in order to provide better transparency of its segment operating results. Furthermore, the company centrally manages interest and other expense, net. Accordingly, the company does not present these items by segment because they are excluded from the segment profitability measure that management reviews.

ITEMS IMPACTING COMPARABILITY OF OPERATING RESULTS
The following information is provided to give qualitative and quantitative information related to items impacting comparability of operating results. The company determines which items to consider as "items impacting comparability" based on how management views the company's business; makes financial, operating and planning decisions; and evaluates the company's ongoing performance. In addition, the company discloses the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on the company's financial results in order to reflect results on a constant currency basis.

Divestitures, Divestiture-related costs and Gains/(losses) on divestitures
On October 2, 2017, the company completed the sale of one of its equity method investments.

In connection with the 2012 spin-off of Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (now a part of KHC), Kraft Foods Group and the company each granted the other various licenses to use certain trademarks in connection with particular product categories in specified jurisdictions. On August 17, 2017, the company entered into two agreements with KHC to terminate the licenses of certain KHC-owned brands used in the company's grocery business within its Europe region and to transfer to KHC inventory and certain other assets. On August 17, 2017, the first transaction closed, and on October 23, 2017, the second transaction closed.

On July 4, 2017, the company completed the sale of most of its grocery business in Australia and New Zealand to Bega Cheese Limited. The company recorded a pre-tax gain of $247 million Australian dollars ($187 million as of July 4, 2017) on the sale during the three months ended September 30, 2017. The company incurred divestiture-related costs of $2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2017. The company also had a gain on a foreign currency hedge of $2 million in the three months and a net loss of $3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

On April 28, 2017, the company completed the sale of several manufacturing facilities in France and the sale or license of several local confectionery brands. The company recorded a $3 million loss on the sale during the three months ended June 30, 2017. The company incurred divestiture-related costs of $1 million in the three months and $22 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and no divestiture-related costs in the three months and $84 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The company recorded these costs within cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses of its Europe segment.

On December 1, 2016, the company completed the sale of a confectionery business in Costa Rica represented by a local brand.

Acquisitions
On November 2, 2016, the company purchased from Burton's Biscuit Company certain intangibles, which included the license to manufacture, market and sell Cadbury-branded biscuits in additional key markets around the world, including in the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, North America and Saudi Arabia. On a constant currency basis, the purchase added incremental net revenues of $20 million in the three months and $50 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Acquisition integration costs
Within the company's AMEA segment, in connection with the acquisition of a biscuit operation in Vietnam, the company recorded integration costs of $1 million in the three months and $2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The company recorded these acquisition integration costs in selling, general and administrative expenses.

2014-2018 Restructuring Program
On May 6, 2014, the company's Board of Directors approved a $3.5 billion restructuring program and up to $2.2 billion of capital expenditures. On August 31, 2016, the company's Board of Directors approved a $600 million reallocation between restructuring program cash costs and capital expenditures so that now the $5.7 billion program consists of approximately $4.1 billion of restructuring program costs ($3.1 billion cash costs and $1 billion non-cash costs) and up to $1.6 billion of capital expenditures. The primary objective of the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program is to reduce the company's operating cost structure in both its supply chain and overhead costs. The program is intended primarily to cover severance as well as asset disposals and other manufacturing-related one-time costs. Since inception, the company has incurred total restructuring and related implementation charges of $3.1 billion related to the 2014-2018 Restructuring Program. The company expects to incur the full $4.1 billion of program charges by year-end 2018.

Restructuring costs
The company recorded restructuring charges of $113 million in the three months and $418 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $187 million in the three months and $480 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 within asset impairment and exit costs. These charges were for non-cash asset write-downs (including accelerated depreciation and asset impairments), severance and other related costs.

Implementation costs
Implementation costs are directly attributable to restructuring activities; however, they do not qualify for special accounting treatment as exit or disposal activities. Implementation costs primarily relate to reorganizing the company's operations and facilities in connection with its supply chain reinvention program and other identified productivity and cost saving initiatives. The costs include incremental expenses related to the closure of facilities, costs to terminate certain contracts and the simplification of the company's information systems. The company recorded implementation costs of $62 million in the three months and $179 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $114 million in the three months and $286 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The company recorded these costs within cost of sales and general corporate expense within selling, general and administrative expenses.

Gain on equity method investment exchange
On March 3, 2016, a subsidiary of Acorn Holdings B.V. ("AHBV") completed the $13.9 billion acquisition of all of the outstanding common stock of Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. ("Keurig") through a merger transaction. On March 7, 2016, the company exchanged with a subsidiary of AHBV a portion of the company's equity interest in JDE with a carrying value of €1.7 billion (approximately $2.0 billion as of March 7, 2016) for an interest in Keurig with a fair value of $2.0 billion based on the merger consideration per share for Keurig. The company recorded the difference between the fair value of Keurig and its basis in JDE shares as a $43 million gain on the equity method investment exchange in March 2016. Immediately following the exchange, the company's ownership interest in JDE was 26.5% and its interest in Keurig was 24.2%. The company accounts for its investments in JDE and Keurig under the equity method and recognizes its share of their earnings within equity method investment earnings and its share of their dividends within the company's cash flows.

Equity method investee adjustments
Within Adjusted EPS, the company's equity method investment net earnings exclude its proportionate share of its investees' unusual or infrequent items, such as acquisition and divestiture-related costs and restructuring program costs.

Mark-to-market impacts from commodity and currency derivative contracts
During the third quarter of 2016, the company began to exclude unrealized gains and losses (mark-to-market impacts) from outstanding commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivatives from its non-GAAP earnings measures until such time that the related exposures impact its operating results. To facilitate comparisons of its underlying operating results, the company has recast all historical non-GAAP earnings measures to exclude the mark-to-market impacts.  

The company recorded net unrealized gains on commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivatives of $28 million in the three months and net unrealized losses of $69 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and net unrealized losses of $12 million in the three months and $49 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Loss related to interest rate swaps
The company recognized pre-tax losses of $97 million in the three months ended March 31, 2016, within interest and other expense, net related to certain U.S. dollar interest rate swaps that the company no longer designated as accounting cash flow hedges due to a change in financing plans.

Loss on debt extinguishment
On April 12, 2017, the company discharged $488 million of its 6.500% U.S. dollar-denominated debt. The company paid $504 million, representing principal as well as past and future interest accruals from February 2017 through the August 2017 maturity date. The company recorded an $11 million loss on debt extinguishment within interest expense.

Intangible assets gains and losses
Impairment charges
During the company's annual testing of non-amortizable intangible assets, the company recorded $70 million of impairment charges in the third quarter of 2017 related to five trademarks. The impairments arose due to lower than expected growth in part driven by decisions to redirect support from these trademarks to other regional and global brands. The company recorded charges related to candy and gum trademarks of $52 million in AMEA, $11 million in Europe, $5 million in Latin America and $2 million in North America. In addition, during the third quarter of 2017, the company recorded a $1 million impairment related to a transaction.

During the second quarter of 2017, the company recorded a $38 million intangible asset impairment charge resulting from a category decline and lower than expected product growth related to a gum trademark in its North America segment.

During the three months ended September 30, 2016, the company discontinued one biscuit product that resulted in a $4 million intangible asset impairment charge in its Europe segment.

On June 30, 2016, in connection with the company's global supply chain reinvention initiatives, the company made a determination to discontinue manufacturing a candy product that resulted in a $7 million impairment charge in its North America segment.

On March 31, 2016, in connection with the sale of a confectionery business in France, the company recorded a $14 million impairment charge for a gum & candy trademark as a portion of its carrying value would not be recoverable based on future cash flows expected under a planned license agreement with the buyer. In May 2016, the company recorded an additional $5 million impairment charge for a candy trademark to reduce the overall net assets to the estimated net sales proceeds after transaction costs.  

Gain on sale of an intangible asset
On August 26, 2016, the company recorded a $7 million gain for the sale of a U.S.-owned biscuit trademark. The gain was recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses of its North America segment.

On May 2, 2016, the company completed the sale of certain local biscuit brands in Finland as part of the company's strategic decisions to exit select small and local brands and shift investment toward its Power Brands. The sales price was €14 million ($16 million as of May 2, 2016) and the company divested $8 million of indefinite lived intangible assets and less than $1 million of other assets. The company received cash proceeds of €12 million ($14 million as of May 2, 2016) and another €2 million ($2 million as of October 31, 2016) following the completion of post-closing requirements. The additional $2 million of consideration increased the pre-tax gain of $6 million recorded in the second quarter of 2016 to a total 2016 pre-tax gain of $8 million. This transaction was recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses of the company's Europe segment.

Incremental expenses related to the malware incident
On June 27, 2017, a global malware incident impacted the company's business. The malware affected a significant portion of the company's global sales, distribution and financial networks. During the last four days of the second quarter and early third quarter, the company executed business continuity and contingency plans to contain the impact and minimize the damages and restore its systems environment. The company does not expect, nor to date has it found, any instances of Company or personal data released externally. The company restored its main operating systems and processes and continues to further enhance the security of its systems.

For the second quarter, the company estimates that the malware incident had a negative impact of 2.3% on its net revenue growth and 2.4% on its Organic Net Revenue growth. While the company is pleased with its recovery efforts following the malware incident, restoring North America systems has taken longer, resulting in additional lost revenue for the year. As a result, for the third quarter, the company estimates that the recovery of shipments delayed due to the malware incident had a net favorable impact of 0.6% on its net revenue and Organic Net Revenue growth. The company also incurred incremental expenses of $47 million as a result of the incident in the three months and $54 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The company expects to incur additional incremental expenses related to the incident and recovery process during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Benefit from resolution of tax matters
During the first quarter of 2017, the Brazilian Supreme Court (the "Court") ruled against the Brazilian tax authorities in a leading case related to the computation of certain indirect (non-income) taxes. The Court ruled that the indirect tax base should not include a value-added tax known as "ICMS". By removing the ICMS from the tax base, the Court effectively eliminated a "tax on a tax." The company's Brazilian subsidiary had received an injunction against making payments for the "tax on a tax" in 2008 and since that time until December 2016, the company had accrued for this portion of the tax each quarter in the event that the tax was reaffirmed by the Brazilian courts. On September 30, 2017, based on legal advice and the publication of the Court's decision related to this case, the company determined that the likelihood that the increased tax base would be reinstated and assessed against the company was remote. Accordingly, the company reversed its accrual of 667 million Brazilian reais, or $212 million as of September 30, 2017, of which, $153 million was recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses and $59 million was recorded within interest and other expense, net. The Brazilian tax authority may appeal the Court's decision, seeking potential clarification or adjustment of the terms of enforcement. The company continues to monitor developments in this matter and currently does not expect a material future impact on its financial statements.

As part of the company's 2010 Cadbury acquisition, the company became the responsible party for tax matters under a February 2, 2006 dated Deed of Tax Covenant between the Cadbury Schweppes PLC and related entities ("Schweppes") and Black Lion Beverages and related entities. The tax matters included an ongoing transfer pricing case with the Spanish tax authorities related to the Schweppes businesses Cadbury divested prior to the company's acquisition of Cadbury. During the first quarter of 2017, the Spanish Supreme Court decided the case in the company's favor. As a result of the final ruling, during the first quarter of 2017, the company recorded a favorable earnings impact of $46 million in selling, general and administrative expenses and $12 million in interest and other expense, net, for a total pre-tax impact of $58 million due to the reversal of Cadbury-related accrued liabilities related to this matter. In the third quarter of 2017, we recorded additional income of $3 million related to a bank guarantee release within selling, general and administrative expenses and interest and other expense, net.

Constant currency
Management evaluates the operating performance of the company and its international subsidiaries on a constant currency basis. The company determines its constant currency operating results by dividing or multiplying, as appropriate, the current period local currency operating results by the currency exchange rates 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 currency exchange rate had not changed from the comparable prior-year period.

OUTLOOK
The company's outlook for 2017 Organic Net Revenue growth, Adjusted Operating Income margin, Adjusted EPS growth on a constant currency basis and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or otherwise adjust for items impacting comparability of financial results such as the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, restructuring activities, acquisitions and divestitures. The company is not able to reconcile its full year 2017 projected Organic Net Revenue growth to its full year 2017 projected reported net revenue growth because the company is unable to predict the 2017 impact of foreign exchange due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates, which could be material as a significant portion of the company's operations are outside the U.S. The company is not able to reconcile its full year 2017 projected Adjusted Operating Income margin to its full year 2017 projected reported operating income margin because the company is unable to predict the timing of its Restructuring Program costs, mark-to-market impacts from commodity and forecasted currency transaction derivative contracts and impacts from potential acquisitions or divestitures. The company is not able to reconcile its full year 2017 projected Adjusted EPS growth on a constant currency basis to its full year 2017 projected reported diluted EPS growth because the company is unable to predict the timing of its Restructuring Program costs, mark-to-market impacts from commodity and forecasted currency forecasted derivative contracts, impacts from potential acquisitions or divestitures as well as the impact of foreign exchange due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates, which could be material as a significant portion of the company's operations are outside the U.S. The company is not able to reconcile its full year 2017 projected Free Cash Flow to its full year 2017 projected net cash from operating activities because the company is unable to predict the timing and amount of capital expenditures impacting cash flow. Therefore, because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of future adjustments, which could be significant, the company is unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures without unreasonable effort.
