Item 8.01. Other Events.

On November 27, 2023, The Kraft Heinz Company (the “Company”) announced that the Board of Directors of the Company approved a share repurchase program authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $3 billion of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock through December 26, 2026.

In determining the amount of capital to allocate to share repurchases, the Company takes into account, among other things, its historical and expected business performance and cash and liquidity position, as well as global economic and market conditions and the market price of the Company’s common stock. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases under the share repurchase program are determined by the Company in its discretion. Purchases may be effected through open market transactions, privately negotiated transactions, transactions structured through investment banking institutions, or other means. The Company is not obligated to repurchase any specific number of shares and the program may be modified, suspended, or discontinued at any time. The share repurchase program will be in addition to the Company’s share repurchases to offset the dilutive effect of equity-based compensation.

Forward-Looking Statements

This filing contains a number of forward-looking statements, including statements relating to the Company’s plans regarding share repurchases. Words such as “account,” “allow,” “believe,” “evaluate,” “intend,” “invest,” “provide,” “support,” “will,” and variations of such words and similar future or conditional expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and beyond Kraft Heinz’s control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward- looking statements. Those factors include, but are not limited to, the Company’s ability to implement its plans regarding share repurchases and the payment of dividends and/or to return value to stockholders, changes in the market price of the Company’s common stock, global economic and market conditions, alternative investment opportunities, and the risk factors set forth in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. The Company disclaims and does not undertake any obligation to update, revise, or withdraw any forward-looking statement in this filing, except as required by applicable law or regulation.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
