Including non-recurring expenses relating to an early debt retirement in 1997 and to the restructuring-related expenses in 1996, fourth quarter net income was $146 million versus $110 million in 1996. Net income per diluted share was $0.54, compared to $0.41 in 1996. Operating company contribution was $434 million versus $338 million last year. Cash net income was $218 million compared to $158 million in 1996. Including one-time items, net income for the year was $405 million, compared to $17 million in 1996, and net income per diluted share for the year was $1.51 compared to $.06 in 1996. Operating company contribution was $1.31 billion versus 1.13 billion last year and cash net income was $615 million compared to $202 million in 1996. For the fourth quarter, excluding the costs of restructuring in 1996, the domestic Biscuit Company's operating company contribution was $202 million, up 17 percent from the comparable quarter in 1996, although sales were off 2 percent to $917 million. Excluding one-time items, the Biscuit Company's operating company contribution for the full year rose 15 percent in 1997 to $691 million from $600 million in 1996 and sales declined 4 percent to $3.55 billion from $3.68 billion. Key factors in Biscuit's 1997 performance were the success of productivity improvement programs and strong performance of core brands. Oreo had a strong year, posting double-digit sales gains, and the new Air Crisps line continued to grow. Operating company contribution for the U.S. Foods Group, excluding one-time items, was $157 million for the quarter, the same as last year, and sales were $807 million for the fourth quarter, down 1 percent from last year. On the same basis, operating company contribution for the year was $378 million, essentially the same as last year, and sales were down 1 percent to $2.60 billion from $2.64 billion in 1996. Major factors for the quarter and the year were strong earnings gains by non-biscuit snack products. Planters advanced on the strength of new advertising and sales growth across all trade channels.

These gains, however, were not sufficient to offset weakness in tablespreads and some grocery products. Excluding one-time items, international operating company contribution for the quarter was down 4 percent to $75 million, with sales down 3 percent to $711 million. For the year, operating company contribution declined 4 percent to $238 million from $248 million in 1996 and sales were $2.59 billion, a slight increase from last year. The major negative factors for the quarter and the year were continued competitive pressures and economic conditions in Latin America, Nabisco International's largest operating region. Solid performances in Mexico and Canada were overshadowed by earnings declines in Brazil, Argentina and Spain. Asia, Nabisco International's development market, continued to grow with gains in sales and profits.
