JP Morgan analyst Ken Goldman probes $GIS on the accounting shift in Yoplait Europe, whether it's reasonable to model an equal headwind in 1Q17. CFO Donal Mulligan says that international had 10% organic sales growth in 4Q16 with about 6 points of that due to shifts from Yoplait in Europe. International had mid-single digit organic sales growth.

$GIS said retail margin changes wasn't really a big driver in 1Q18. Looking at retail sales, what drove the company's positive pricing was a combination of two things. One is baseline sales outpaced its growth overall so $GIS still has 300 basis point improvement on overall sales. And the other was good quality merchandizing.

$GIS' adjusted gross margin for 1Q18 fell 230 basis points and adjusted operating margin was down 210 basis points, due to volume deleverage, higher input cost including currency-driven inflation on imported products and unfavorable trade expense phasing. $GIS expects each of these margin drivers to turn more favorable in the remainder of 2018.
