PepsiCo, Inc. (NASDAQ: PEP) today reported results for the third quarter 2018.

Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsico:

“We are pleased with our results for the third quarter.”

“We continued to see very strong operating performance from our international divisions, propelled by developing and emerging markets.”

“Frito-Lay North America generated solid net revenue and operating profit growth; and North America Beverages delivered another quarter of sequential improvement in top-line performance.”

“On the strength of our year-to-date results, we have revised upward our full-year organic revenue growth target.”

“Additionally, given the recent strengthening in the U.S. dollar we have revised our full-year core earnings per share target to reflect our updated expectation of an approximate 1 percentage point headwind from foreign exchange translation.”
