12 Characteristics of the Industry Key Drivers:Demand from supermarkets, grocery wholesalers and grocery storesWholesalers are the link to stores and stores are the link to consumersHigh competition for in-store advertising and shelf spaceWorld commodity prices & other input pricesVolatile commodity pricesPackaging materialsConsumer preferences & demandContinually changingWorld price of crude oil and natural gasProduct and packaging plantsTransportation costsConsolidation of retail customers creates larger retailers with increased influence in the marketplace. Many of the industry’s retail customers such as supermarkets and food distributors continue to consolidate, decreasing number of customers. Large retail customers can resist price increases and demand lower pricing. Larger retailers have scale to develop supply chains that allow them to operate with reduced inventories.Must distinguish among short-term fads, mid-term trends and long-term changes in consumer preferences. Recently, consumers have increasingly focused on health and wellness, including weight management and reducing sodium consumption.As commodities become constrained, prices may rise sharply. Some key commodities that our industry is reliant on include sugar, coffee, cocoa, wheat, corn products, soybean and vegetable oils, and dairy.
13 Industry PerformanceSnacking category within Processed & Packaged goods continues to growGrowth is highly correlated to GDP growth, urbanization of population and rising discretionary income levelsDemand:Temporary emerging market slow down in 2013 – took a toll on global growthExpect overall growth rate expected to return to normal in 2014Snack food consumption is highly correlated to GDP growth, urbanization of the population and rising discretionary income levels associated with a growing middle class. Over the long-term, we expect these trends to continue leading to growth in key consumer behaviors including increased snacking occasions, greater use of convenience food and migrating to more frequent, smaller meals.
14 Industry OutlookLife Cycle – Industry is mature, characterized by saturated domestic markets and well- established brands.Weak dollar against the currencies of major trading partners will boost industry exports.Growing global middle class.Mondelez DivestitureCompetitionMediumConcentrationHighLife Cycle StageMatureCapital IntensityTechnology ChangeRegulation & PolicyIndustry AssistanceLowSource:Industry leaders compete primarily on the basis of product quality, brand recognition, brand loyalty, service, marketing, advertising and price.Divestiture - it will create a global snacks business with revenue of $32 billion, containing such brands as Oreo cookies, Trident gum and Cadbury chocolates. It will also create a North American grocery business with revenue of $16 billion, including such brands as Jell-O desserts, Oscar Mayer processed meats and Kraft macaroni and cheese.There are big threats facing potential new entrants to the industry. Specifically, the extremely well fixed position of the industry’s major players. These major players have high customer and brand loyalty and have the resources necessary to invest in advertising and promotions needed to secure and improve market share.The major players also experience favorable contracts with key suppliers. New entrants will have trouble attaining the same inputs for the same low prices. Additionally, new entrants will not have the established distribution channels in place that more mature firms already operate.Overall, there is little threat from new entrants into the processed and packaged good industry.

26 Valuation Methodology We ultimately decided to employ the Abnormal Enterprise Income Growth Model.Residual Income was consideredIts reliance on NEA works well with the future growth strategies of Nestle and Mondelez…but the AEIG Model primarily uses forecasts within our designated time horizon to derive total estimated value, and thus provides us with the most confidence.
27 The Big PictureAcross the industry, domestic sales are saturated and stagnant, but emerging markets are on the verge of a boom.Both companies plan to pursue an aggressive acquisition strategy in these emerging markets to capture significant market share.At the moment, Mondelez’s recent spin-off hinders its growth rate.
