PURCHASE, N.Y. — Revenue for PepsiCo, Inc. declined 5% during the quarter as the result of structural changes involving beverage refranchisings in China and Mexico and foreign exchange translation. The company said excluding these items, net revenue grew 5% on an organic basis.

For the quarter ended Sept. 8, the company had an income of $1,902 million, equal to $1.21 per share on the diluted common stock, down 5% from $2,000 million, equal to $1.25 per share, during the same quarter of the previous year. Revenue for the quarter was $16,652 million, down 5% from $17,582 million during the same quarter of the previous year.

“PepsiCo is diligently executing the strategy we set forth at the start of the year, and we remain on track to achieve our full-year targets,” said Indra Nooyi, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our disciplined pricing and sustained investment in brand building drove 5% organic net revenue growth reflecting 1% organic volume growth and 4% effective net pricing.

“We remain focused on our five priorities. We will continue to invest aggressively to build our brands, accelerate innovation to drive growth, focus on execution and deliver our productivity agenda while returning cash to shareholders.”
