Pepsi Co Case Study

...Pepsi Co With the assumptions given in the case, we estimated the WACC to be 12.23%. The cost of equity represented in the WACC was calculated using the geometric mean return on T-bonds and the long-term government bond rate (4.5%) as the appropriate risk free rate. We chose this over the arithmetic mean return using T-bills under the assumption that the geometric mean is more appropriate to use in estimating the expected return over longer time horizons, especially because as we go towards longer time horizon returns become more serially correlated. The difference in our estimated WACC from the 11% estimated could be attributed to the choice between arithmetic or geometric risk premiums and the short term/long-term risk free rates. (See exhibit 1) Since PepsiCo is comprised of three different business segment, we felt that it was in our best interest to calculate the cost of capital for each of the segments in order to achieve the appropriate WACC. We calculated the new WACCs via pure play method and used comparable companies for references (See Exhibit 2 for divisional segments). In order to use the pure play method, we averaged the betas, debt-equity ratios, and tax rates for all the related companies in each segment. We unlevered the betas and re-levered it to PepsiCo’s specifications. We arrived with the betas of .85, .83, and 1.19 for restaurants, snack foods, and soft drinks respectively. In the end we estimated 12.17%, 13.15%, and 15.74% as our new WACCs for the......

...organisational mission and objectives. The organisation reorganised their structure to a multidivisional structure in a move to exploit the full acquisition potential. A multidivisional structure is most suitable for an organisation that has not got a wide range of products like PepsiCo. The organisation did not experience benefits from the multidivisional structure because PepsiCo had a wide rage of products and different customers. The organisation was structured into divisions and each reporting to the headquarters and there was no synergies and economies of scale gained. PepsiCo revised the organisational structure to a matrix structure. It enabled the organisation to operate in its particular competitive situation at peak effectiveness. At Pepsi they discovered that it was essential to drive the various brands as part of one team. There was less conflict between employees because of the hierarchical setup of the organisation. PepsiCo Beverages became the No 1 liquid refreshment beverage company in measured channels. There was a strategic fit as its strengths in the growing non-carbonated drinks market could be exploited and PepsiCo became the market leader in the total soft drink market. QUESTION 1 Why was PepsiCo essentially organised into North American and international divisions? Why were there some variations in this structure? Examining the organisation structures outlined in this chapter, in which category would you put PepsiCo? Organisations in every......

Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi Co

...Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi Co 2 1. Using the current ratio, discuss what conclusions you can make about each company’s ability to pay current liabilities (debt). The current ratio measures the company’s ability to pay its short term obligations with its short term assets. Between Coca Cola and PepsiCo, PepsiCo has a higher current ratio implying that is more capable of paying its obligations. The debt management policies of Coca-Cola in conjunction with share repurchase program and investment activity resulted in current liabilities exceeding current assets. From the ratio Pepsi Co suddenly had to pay all its short-term creditors, it would be able to do so and have a surplus of 44% of current assets. If Coca-Cola had to pay all its short-term obligations, it would have only 13% surplus of current assets after fully repaying all short term obligations. Therefore, it can be said that PepsiCo is more liquid than Coca Cola based on its current ratio. | Coca-Cola | Pepsi Co. | Current Ratio | 1.13 | 1.44 |   2. Using the profitability ratios, discuss what conclusions you can make about each company’s profits over the past three years.

Pepsi Co

...Background The beverage that became known as Pepsi Cola was invented by a pharmacist, Caleb Bradham in New Bern, North Carolina in 1893 (seven years after Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta Georgia).

The Pepsi Cola Company was incorporated in 1092. Meanwhile, the the Frito Company was founded by Elmer Doolin in 1932, and the H. W. Lay Company, was founded by Herman W.Lay in that same year. Those two companies merged into the Frito-Lay company in 1961. When the Pepsi Cola company merged with the Frito-Lay company in 1965, PepsiCo Inc. was born.

...strategy and structure to accomplish their organisational goals.   Introduction Over a three year period from 1998-2001, PepsiCo made 2 major acquisitions. Each acquisition was made for a price premium that could only be repaid by finding new synergies and economies of scale. This required PepsiCo to develop new organisational structures designed to deliver these major benefits. PepsiCo is the world’s largest snack and crisp manufacturer with annual sales of US$29 Billion dollars, although PepsiCo is better known for its carbonated drinks. The table below lists some of their top brands, which includes those that arrived through its acquisitions strategy in the 6 years leading to 2004.

Strategic Analysis of Pepsi-Cola Co.

...This essay will take a look at the company Pepsi Cola. For a better understanding of the subject company, this paper will delve into a brief history of the Pepsi Company’s growth over the years and the effects of competition on Pepsi’s strategies in the international and domestic market. This essay will attempt to discuss the effectiveness of Pepsi’s marketing strategies and its results. Body Pepsi was one of several other brands that got their start in the late 1800s. A North Carolina pharmacist named Caleb Bradham invented "Brad's Drink" in 1893, which was later renamed Pepsi-Cola. Pepsi’s early growth was less significant than that of Coke's, and its real strength as a competitor to Coke began after Alfred Steele became CEO in 1950, a time when Pepsi was nearly bankrupt. Steele was expected to liquidate the Pepsi-Cola Co. Instead, he made it his goal to "beat Coke" (Wolburg, 2003). Pepsi Cola has taken part of that appeal and has used it in several different marketing strategies. Pepsi was born after Coca Cola, or Coke. It began in North Carolina, invented by a pharmacist named Caleb Bradham. It came out for public use on August 28, 1898. It had the reputation for being a food drink; Bradham was a pharmacist and he claimed that his concoction aided digestion. This claim, in a way, was already a marketing strategy, because during those times, people were always buying medicinal aids for digestion. Pepsi spread to Canada in 1906, and the year......

...Pepsi Co. After reading through the articles pertaining to Pepsi and their current search for a new CEO, the question can be raised as to whether or not the company should hire from within or search elsewhere for a suitable replacement. When a company is deciding whether to hire from within the company or to choose an outsider, there are both positives and negatives that come with each side of the decision. Choosing an insider that has already worked in the company has its advantages such as conveying a positive message to other employees throughout the organization. For instance, promoting a hirer level executive to fill the CEO roll with show all current employees that if they work hard and dedicate themselves to their profession, they may be able to get promoted to higher-level positions. Secondly, by promoting within a company, a sign of relief goes out to the majority of the current executives who are working for the company because when an outsider is hired for the role of CEO, often they will bring their own management team with them thus taking away jobs from the current employees. Lastly, promoting from within an organization ensures that the knowledge of the corporate culture remains intact. When an outsider is hired, it takes time for that person to learn the ins and outs of an organization whether it is finding out whom the all-star employees are or just what the culture of the work place is like. In essence, hiring an outsider equals a longer learning period,...
