Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)
(currency in millions, except per share amounts)

1.
Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies
The financial statements reflect all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position, and cash flows for the indicated periods. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The accounting policies used in preparing these financial statements are consistent with those applied in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2011. The results for the period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for other interim periods or the full year.

2.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued additional authoritative guidance related to fair value measurements and disclosures. The guidance requires a roll forward, separately presenting information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements on a gross basis, rather than net, of the assets and liabilities measured using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 fair value measurements). The company adopted the guidance in the first quarter of 2012. The adoption did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.
In November 2010, the FASB issued additional authoritative guidance clarifying the required disclosures of supplementary pro forma information for business combinations. The guidance is effective prospectively for business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2010.
In December 2010, the FASB issued additional authoritative guidance on accounting for goodwill. The guidance clarifies the impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. The guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2011. The company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on the company’s consolidated financial statements.
In May 2011, the FASB issued further additional authoritative guidance related to fair value measurements and disclosures. The new guidance results in a consistent definition of fair value and common requirements for measurement of and disclosure about fair value between accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2011. The company is currently assessing the impact of the guidance.
In June 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance requiring entities to present net income and other comprehensive income (OCI) in one continuous statement or two separate, but consecutive, statements of net income and comprehensive income. The option to present items of OCI in the statement of changes in equity has been eliminated. In December 2011, the FASB issued an amendment to defer indefinitely a requirement in the June 2011 standard that called for reclassification adjustments from accumulated other comprehensive income to be measured and presented by income statement line item in net income and also in OCI. The new requirements are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and for interim reporting periods within those years. The company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on the company’s consolidated financial statements.
In September 2011, the FASB issued revised guidance intended to simplify how an entity tests goodwill for impairment. The amendments will allow an entity first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. An entity will no longer be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. The amendments are effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted. The company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on the company’s consolidated financial statements.
In December 2011, the FASB issued guidance related to disclosures about offsetting (netting) of assets and liabilities in the statement of financial position. The guidance requires entities to disclose gross information and net information about both instruments and transactions that are offset in the statement of financial position, and instruments and transactions subject to an agreement similar to a master netting arrangement. The scope includes financial instruments and derivative instruments. The disclosures are required for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. Disclosures required under the guidance shall be provided for all comparative periods presented. The company is currently assessing the impact of the guidance.

3.
Comprehensive Income
Total comprehensive income is comprised of net earnings, net foreign currency translation adjustments, net unamortized pension and postretirement benefits adjustments, and net unrealized gains and losses on cash-flow hedges. Total comprehensive

7



income for the three-month periods ended January 29, 2012 and January 30, 2011 was $182 and $257, respectively. Total comprehensive income for the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012 and January 30, 2011 was $406 and $659.
The components of Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) consisted of the following:

Non-amortizable intangible assets consist of trademarks, which mainly include Pace, Royco, Liebig, Blå Bland, and Touch of Taste.
Amortizable intangible assets consist substantially of process technology and customer intangibles. Amortization related to these assets was less than $1 for the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011. The estimated aggregated amortization expense for each of the five succeeding fiscal years is less than $1 per year. Asset useful lives range from ten to twenty years.

5.
Business and Geographic Segment Information
The company reports the results of operations in the following reportable segments: U.S. Simple Meals; Global Baking and Snacking; International Simple Meals and Beverages; U.S. Beverages; and North America Foodservice. The company has

8



eleven operating segments based on product type and geographic location and has aggregated the operating segments into the appropriate reportable segment based on similar economic characteristics; products; production processes; types or classes of customers; distribution methods; and regulatory environment. The segments are discussed in greater detail below.
The U.S. Simple Meals segment aggregates the following operating segments: U.S. Soup and U.S. Sauces. The U.S. Soup retail business includes the following products: Campbell’s condensed and ready-to-serve soups; and Swanson broth and stocks. The U.S. Sauces retail business includes the following products: Prego pasta sauce; Pace Mexican sauce; Swanson canned poultry; and Campbell’s canned gravies, pasta and beans.
The Global Baking and Snacking segment aggregates the following operating segments: Pepperidge Farm cookies, crackers, bakery and frozen products in U.S. retail; and Arnott’s biscuits in Australia and Asia Pacific.
The International Simple Meals and Beverages segment aggregates the simple meals and beverages operating segments outside of the United States, including Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, China and the retail business in Canada.
The U.S. Beverages segment represents the U.S. retail beverages business, including the following products: V8 juices and beverages; and Campbell’s tomato juice.
The North America Foodservice segment represents the distribution of products such as soup, specialty entrees, beverage products, other prepared foods and Pepperidge Farm products through various food service channels in the United States and Canada.
The company’s accounting policies for measuring segment assets and earnings before interest and taxes are substantially consistent with those described in the company’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The company evaluates segment performance before interest, taxes, and costs associated with restructuring activities. Beginning in 2012, unrealized gains and losses on commodity hedging activities are excluded from segment operating earnings and are recorded in Corporate expenses as these open positions represent hedges of future purchases. Upon closing of the contracts, the realized gain or loss is transferred to segment operating earnings, which allows the segments to reflect the economic effects of the hedge without exposure to quarterly volatility of unrealized gains and losses. In prior periods, unrealized gains and losses on commodity hedging activities were not material. The manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and selling activities of the company’s U.S. retail business are operated as an integrated platform in order to maximize efficiency and productivity. As a result, assets and capital expenditures of the U.S. Simple Meals and U.S. Beverages segments are not discretely maintained. Depreciation expense associated with the integrated operations, however, is allocated to the U.S. Simple Meals and U.S. Beverages segments based on production hours. North America Foodservice products are principally produced by the tangible assets of the company’s other segments, except for refrigerated soups, which are produced in a separate facility, and certain other products, which are produced under contract manufacturing agreements. Tangible assets of the company’s other segments are not allocated to the North America Foodservice operations. Depreciation, however, is allocated to North America Foodservice based on production hours.

Restructuring Charges
On June 28, 2011, the company announced a series of initiatives to improve supply chain efficiency and reduce overhead costs across the organization to help fund plans to drive the growth of the business. The company also announced its intent to exit the Russian market. The company expects to eliminate approximately 750 positions in connection with these initiatives. Details of the plans include:
In Australia, the company will invest in a new system to automate packing operations at its biscuit plant in Virginia. This investment will occur through the second quarter of 2013 and will result in the elimination of approximately 190 positions. Further, the company improved asset utilization in the U.S. by shifting production of ready-to-serve soups from Paris, Texas, to other facilities in 2012. In addition, the manufacturing facility in Marshall, Michigan, was closed in 2011, and manufacturing of Campbell’s Soup at Hand microwavable products was consolidated at the Maxton, North Carolina, plant in 2012.
The company streamlined its salaried workforce by approximately 510 positions around the world, including approximately 130 positions at its world headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. These actions were substantially completed in 2011. As part of this initiative, the company outsourced a larger portion of its U.S. retail merchandising activities to its current retail sales agent, Acosta Sales and Marketing, and eliminated approximately 190 positions. The company expects that this action will enhance merchandising effectiveness and coverage for its U.S. customers.
In connection with exiting the Russian market, the company has eliminated approximately 50 positions. The exit process commenced in 2011 and will be substantially completed in 2012.
In the second quarter of 2012, the company recorded a restructuring charge of $3 ($2 after tax or $.01 per share) related to these initiatives, resulting in a year-to-date charge of $5 ($3 after tax or $.01 per share). In the fourth quarter of 2011, the company recorded a restructuring charge of $63 ($41 after tax or $.12 per share). A summary of the pre-tax charges and remaining costs associated with the initiatives is as follows:

Of the aggregate $75 of pre-tax costs, the company expects approximately $50 will be cash expenditures, the majority of which will be spent in 2012. In addition, the company expects to invest approximately $40 in capital expenditures in connection with the actions. The initiatives are expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

Earnings per Share
The accounting guidance for earnings per share provides that unvested share-based payment awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) are participating securities and shall be included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two-class method is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for each class of common stock and participating security according to dividends declared and participation rights in undistributed earnings.

Noncontrolling Interests
The company owns a 60% controlling interest in a joint venture formed with Swire Pacific Limited to support the development of the company’s business in China. The joint venture began operations on January 31, 2011, the beginning of the third quarter of 2011.
The noncontrolling interest’s share in the net loss was included in Net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
The company owns a 70% controlling interest in a Malaysian food products manufacturing company. The earnings attributable to the noncontrolling interest have historically been less than $1 annually and were previously included in Other expense/(income) in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. Beginning in the third quarter of 2011, the earnings attributable to the noncontrolling interest were included in Net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. The earnings were not material for the six-month period ended January 29, 2012.
The noncontrolling interests in these entities were included in Total equity in the Consolidated Balance Sheets and Consolidated Statements of Equity.

Financial Instruments
The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and short-term borrowings, excluding the current portion of long-term debt, approximate fair value. The fair value of long-term debt, including the current portion of long-term debt in Short-term borrowings, was $2,678 at January 29, 2012 and $2,603 at July 31, 2011. The carrying value was $2,417 at January 29, 2012 and $2,427 at July 31, 2011. The fair value of long-term debt is based on quoted market prices or pricing models using current market rates.
The principal market risks to which the company is exposed are changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates, and commodity prices. In addition, the company is exposed to equity price changes related to certain deferred compensation obligations. In order to manage these exposures, the company follows established risk management policies and procedures, including the use of derivative contracts such as swaps, forwards and commodity futures and option contracts. These derivative contracts are entered into for periods consistent with the related underlying exposures and do not constitute positions independent of those exposures. The company does not enter into derivative contracts for speculative purposes and does not use leveraged instruments. The company’s derivative programs include both instruments that qualify and that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment.
The company is exposed to the risk that counterparties to derivative contracts will fail to meet their contractual obligations. The company minimizes the counterparty credit risk on these transactions by dealing only with leading, credit-worthy financial institutions having long-term credit ratings of “A” or better. In addition, the contracts are distributed among several financial institutions, thus minimizing credit-risk concentration. The company does not have credit-risk-related contingent features in its derivative instruments as of January 29, 2012.
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk

The company is exposed to foreign currency exchange risk related to its international operations, including non-functional currency intercompany debt and net investments in subsidiaries. The company is also exposed to foreign exchange risk as a result of transactions in currencies other than the functional currency of certain subsidiaries. Principal currencies hedged include the Australian dollar, Canadian dollar, euro, Swedish krona, New Zealand dollar, British pound and Japanese yen. The company utilizes foreign exchange forward purchase and sale contracts as well as cross-currency swaps to hedge these exposures. The contracts are either designated as cash-flow hedging instruments or are undesignated. The company typically hedges portions of its forecasted foreign currency transaction exposure with foreign exchange forward contracts for up to 18 months. To hedge currency exposures related to intercompany debt, cross-currency swap contracts are entered into for periods consistent with the underlying debt. As of January 29, 2012, cross-currency swap contracts mature in 2012 through 2015. The

13



notional amount of foreign exchange forward and cross-currency swap contracts accounted for as cash-flow hedges was $251 at January 29, 2012 and $287 at July 31, 2011. The effective portion of the changes in fair value on these instruments is recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) and is reclassified into the Consolidated Statements of Earnings on the same line item and the same period in which the underlying hedge transaction affects earnings. The notional amount of foreign exchange forward and cross-currency swap contracts that are not designated as accounting hedges was $838 and $861 at January 29, 2012 and July 31, 2011, respectively.
Interest Rate Risk
The company manages its exposure to changes in interest rates by optimizing the use of variable-rate and fixed-rate debt and by utilizing interest rate swaps in order to maintain its variable-to-total debt ratio within targeted guidelines. Receive fixed rate/pay variable rate interest rate swaps are accounted for as fair-value hedges. The notional amount of outstanding fair-value interest rate swaps totaled $500 at January 29, 2012 and at July 31, 2011. These swaps mature in 2013 through 2014.
Commodity Price Risk
The company principally uses a combination of purchase orders and various short- and long-term supply arrangements in connection with the purchase of raw materials, including certain commodities and agricultural products. The company also enters into commodity futures and options contracts to reduce the volatility of price fluctuations of diesel fuel, wheat, soybean oil, aluminum, and natural gas, which impact the cost of raw materials. Commodity futures and option contracts are typically accounted for as cash-flow hedges or are not designated as accounting hedges. The company enters into commodity futures and option contracts to hedge a portion of commodity requirements for periods typically up to 12 months. The notional amount of commodity contracts accounted for as cash-flow hedges was $1 at January 29, 2012 and $6 at July 31, 2011. The notional amount of commodity contracts that are not designated as accounting hedges was $61 at January 29, 2012 and $81 at July 31, 2011.
Equity Price Risk
The company hedges a portion of exposures relating to certain deferred compensation obligations linked to the total return of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, the total return of the company’s capital stock and the total return of the Vanguard International Stock Index. Under these contracts, the company pays variable interest rates and receives from the counterparty either the total return of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, the total return on company capital stock, or the total return of the iShares MSCI EAFE Index, which is expected to approximate the total return of the Vanguard International Stock Index. These contracts were not designated as hedges for accounting purposes and are typically entered into for periods not exceeding 12 months. The notional amounts of the contracts as of January 29, 2012 and July 31, 2011 were $68 and $71, respectively.

Fair Value Measurements
The company is required to categorize financial assets and liabilities based on the following fair value hierarchy:
Level 1: Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability through corroboration with observable market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions.
Fair value is defined as the exit price, or the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date. When available, the company uses unadjusted quoted market prices to measure the fair value and classifies such items as Level 1. If quoted market prices are not available, the company bases fair value upon internally developed models that use current market-based or independently sourced market parameters such as interest rates and currency rates.
The following table presents the company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of January 29, 2012, and July 31, 2011, consistent with the fair value hierarchy:

Share Repurchase Programs
In June 2011, the Board authorized the purchase of up to $1,000 of company stock. This program has no expiration date. In addition to this publicly announced program, the company repurchases shares to offset the impact of dilution from shares issued under the company’s stock compensation plans.
During the six-month period ended January 29, 2012, the company repurchased 5 million shares at a cost of $173. Of this amount, $115 was used to repurchase shares pursuant to the company’s June 2011 publicly announced share repurchase program. Approximately $885 remains available under this program as of January 29, 2012.
During the six-month period ended January 30, 2011, the company repurchased 16 million shares at a cost of $573. Of this amount, $456 was used to repurchase shares pursuant to the company’s June 2008 publicly announced share repurchase program, which was completed in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Stock-based Compensation
The company provides compensation benefits by issuing unrestricted stock, restricted stock and restricted stock units (including time-lapse restricted stock units, EPS performance restricted stock units, total shareowner return (TSR) performance restricted stock units and strategic performance restricted stock units). In fiscal 2012, the company issued time-lapse restricted stock units, EPS performance restricted stock units and, for the first time, strategic performance restricted stock units. The company did not issue TSR performance restricted stock units in fiscal 2012. Awards of the strategic performance restricted stock units will be earned based upon the achievement of two key metrics, net sales and EPS growth, compared to strategic plan objectives during a two-year period. A recipient of strategic performance restricted stock units may earn a total award ranging from 0% to 200% of the initial grant. In previous fiscal years, the company also issued stock options and stock appreciation rights.
Total pre-tax stock-based compensation expense recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings was $23 and $25 for the three-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011, respectively. Tax-related benefits of $9 were also recognized for each of the three-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011. Total pre-tax stock-based compensation expense recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings was $45 and $46 for the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011, respectively. Tax-related benefits of $17 were also recognized for each of the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011. Cash received from the exercise of stock options was $23

18



and $38 for the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011, respectively, and is reflected in cash flows from financing activities in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

The fair value of time-lapse restricted stock units, EPS performance restricted stock units, and strategic performance restricted stock units is determined based on the quoted price of the company’s stock at the date of grant. Time-lapse restricted stock units are expensed on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, except for awards issued to retirement-eligible participants, which are expensed on an accelerated basis. EPS performance restricted stock units are expensed on a graded-vesting basis, except for awards issued to retirement-eligible participants, which are expensed on an accelerated basis. There were approximately 300 thousand EPS performance target grants outstanding at January 29, 2012 with a weighted-average grant-date fair value of $33.56. Strategic performance restricted stock units are expensed on a straight-line basis over the service period. There were approximately 1.32 million strategic performance target grants outstanding at January 29, 2012 with a grant-date fair value of $32.37. The actual number of EPS performance restricted stock units and strategic performance restricted stock units issued at the vesting date could range from 0% to 100% and 0% to 200%, respectively, of the initial grant, depending on actual performance achieved. Expense is estimated based on the number of awards expected to vest.
On July 1, 2011, the company issued approximately 400 thousand special retention time-lapse restricted stock units to certain executives to support successful execution of the company’s shift in strategic direction and leadership transition. These awards vest over a two-year period and are included in the table above. The grant-date fair value was $34.65.
As of January 29, 2012, total remaining unearned compensation related to nonvested time-lapse restricted stock units, EPS performance restricted stock units and strategic performance restricted stock units was $91, which will be amortized over the weighted-average remaining service period of 1.7 years. The fair value of restricted stock units vested during the six-month periods ended January 29, 2012, and January 30, 2011, was $37 and $39, respectively. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of the restricted stock units granted during the six-month period ended January 30, 2011, was $36.08.

The company estimated the fair value of TSR performance restricted stock units at the grant date using a Monte Carlo simulation. Assumptions used in the 2011 Monte Carlo simulation were as follows:

 
2011
Risk-free interest rate

Compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the service period. As of January 29, 2012, total remaining unearned compensation related to TSR performance restricted stock units was $32, which will be amortized over the weighted-average remaining service period of 1.4 years. In the first quarter of 2012, recipients of TSR performance restricted stock units earned 0% of the initial grants based upon the company’s TSR ranking in a performance peer group during a three-year period ended July 29, 2011. The total fair value of TSR performance restricted stock units vested during the six-month period ended January 30, 2011, was $38. The grant-date fair value of TSR performance restricted stock units granted during the six-month period ended January 30, 2011, was $43.18. There were no TSR performance restricted stock units granted during the six-month period ended January 29, 2012.
Prior to fiscal 2009, employees could elect to defer all types of restricted stock awards. These awards were classified as liabilities because of the possibility that they may be settled in cash. The fair value is adjusted quarterly. As of January 2011 these awards were fully vested. Total cash paid to settle the liabilities during the six-month period ended January 30, 2011, was not material.
The excess tax benefits on the exercise of stock options and vested restricted stock presented as cash flows from financing activities were not material for the six-month period ended January 29, 2012 and were $6 for the six-month period ended January 30, 2011.
