General Mills Raises Q4, FY20 Outlook - Quick Facts

General Mills (GIS) has raised its financial expectations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 to reflect stronger than anticipated at-home food demand in March and April, with an expectation that trends will moderate in May but remain significantly ahead of pre-COVID-19 levels.

The company expects fourth-quarter organic net sales to increase double digits versus the prior year, led by strong growth in North America Retail and Pet.

It projects fourth-quarter constant-currency adjusted operating profit to grow faster than organic net sales, reflecting benefits from operating leverage, partially offset by increased costs related to COVID-19.

The company now expects to exceed each of its previous full-year fiscal 2020 guidance ranges of 1 to 2 percent organic net sales growth, 4 to 6 percent growth in constant-currency adjusted operating profit, and 6 to 8 percent growth in constant-currency adjusted earnings per share.
