Keurig Dr Pepper to Outline Strategy and Value-creation Opportunities at Investor Event

Enterprise Strategy Supports Continued Consistent Delivery of Long-Term Financial Algorithm
Company Also Reaffirms Full Year 2024 Net Sales and Adjusted EPS Outlook

BURLINGTON, Mass. and FRISCO, Texas, March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Keurig Dr Pepper (NASDAQ: KDP) will discuss its enterprise strategy and the multiple value-creation opportunities supporting its long-term financial outlook at its investor update today in New York City. In connection with the event, the Company reaffirmed its guidance for 2024 constant currency net sales growth in a mid-single-digit range and Adjusted EPS growth in a high-single-digit range, both consistent with KDP's long-term algorithm.

During today's presentation, management will discuss how the Company's strategy is designed to deliver base business momentum that leverages KDP's leading capabilities, support further expansion into high-growth segments, and drive increasingly meaningful contribution from its International business segment. KDP also will outline how these goals are enabled by a robust continuous productivity program to fund incremental investment and deliver margin expansion, as well as by the Company's disciplined capital deployment approach to enhancing value creation.

"I am proud of KDP's track record of outperformance over the past five years, which is testament to the leading brands we have nurtured and added to our portfolio, the capabilities we have developed, and our differentiated challenger culture that empowers our talented teams to move quickly, think disruptively, and act with ownership," commented Bob Gamgort, KDP Chairman and CEO.

Gamgort continued, "We have entered the next phase as a public company and are focused on activating an evolved strategy to drive continued strong operational and financial outcomes and enhance our competitive advantages. As we look forward to and prepare for a CEO transition in Q2 2024, I am confident that our energized executive leadership team, led by Tim Cofer, will ensure KDP's continued success and deliver on the numerous value creation opportunities we see ahead."

Access to a live webcast of the event and a slide presentation will be available in the Investors section of the Company's corporate website, www.keurigdrpepper.com. For those unable to listen to the live webcast, a recorded version will be made available for replay.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, which differ from results using U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplements to and should not be considered replacements for, or superior to, the GAAP measures. These measures may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, and other companies may not define the non-GAAP financial measure in the same way. Non-GAAP financial measures typically exclude certain charges, including one-time costs that are not expected to occur routinely in future periods, described by the Company as "items affecting comparability". The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. Additionally, we use non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in our budgeting and planning process. We believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate our operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance.
