The Kraft Heinz Company
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
Note 1. Basis of Presentation
Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been omitted, in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In management’s opinion, these interim financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) and accruals necessary to fairly state our results for the periods presented.
We operate on a 52- or 53-week fiscal year ending on the last Saturday in December in each calendar year. Unless the context requires otherwise, references to years and quarters contained herein pertain to our fiscal years and fiscal quarters. Our 2024 fiscal year is scheduled to be a 52-week period ending on December 28, 2024, and our 2023 fiscal year was a 52-week period that ended on December 30, 2023.
The condensed consolidated balance sheet data at December 30, 2023 was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. These statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2023. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of future or annual results.
Principles of Consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include The Kraft Heinz Company and all of our controlled subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions are eliminated.
Reportable Segments
In the first quarter of 2024, our internal reporting structure and reportable segments changed. We divided our International segment into three operating segments — Europe and Pacific Developed Markets (“EPDM” or “International Developed Markets”), West and East Emerging Markets (“WEEM”), and Asia Emerging Markets (“AEM”) — to enable enhanced focus on the different strategies required for each of these regions as part of our long-term strategic plan. Subsequently, we manage our operating results through four operating segments. We have two reportable segments defined by geographic region: North America and International Developed Markets. Our remaining operating segments, consisting of WEEM and AEM, are combined and disclosed as Emerging Markets.
Use of Estimates
We prepare our condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP, which requires us to make accounting policy elections, estimates, and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, reserves, and expenses. These accounting policy elections, estimates, and assumptions are based on our best estimates and judgments. We evaluate our policy elections, estimates, and assumptions on an ongoing basis using historical experience and other factors, including the current economic environment. We believe these estimates to be reasonable given the current facts available. We adjust our policy elections, estimates, and assumptions when facts and circumstances dictate. Market volatility, including foreign currency exchange rates, increases the uncertainty inherent in our estimates and assumptions. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results could differ significantly from estimates. If actual amounts differ from estimates, we include the revisions in our consolidated results of operations in the period the actual amounts become known. Historically, the aggregate differences, if any, between our estimates and actual amounts in any year have not had a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Reclassifications
We made reclassifications and adjustments to certain previously reported financial information to conform to our current period presentation.
6


Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Restricted Cash
Cash equivalents include term deposits with banks, money market funds, and all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less. The fair value of cash equivalents approximates the carrying amount. Cash and cash equivalents that are legally restricted as to withdrawal or usage are classified in other current assets or other non-current assets, as applicable, on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. At March 30, 2024, we had $2 million of restricted cash in other non-current assets. At December 30, 2023, we had restricted cash recorded in other current assets of $3 million and $1 million of restricted cash in other non-current assets. Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash was $1,628 million at March 30, 2024 and $1,404 million at December 30, 2023.
Note 2. Significant Accounting Policies
There were no significant changes to our accounting policies from those disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2023.
Note 3. New Accounting Standards
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
Segment Reporting (Topic 280) – Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures:
In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2023-07 to improve segment disclosure requirements under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 280, Segment Reporting, through enhancing disclosures about significant segment expenses. The guidance requires entities to provide significant segment expenses that are regularly provided to the chief operating decision maker and other segment expenses included in each reported measure of segment profitability. This ASU also enhances interim segment reporting requirements by aligning interim disclosures with information that must be disclosed annually in accordance with ASC 280. This ASU will be effective beginning in 2024 for annual reports and in 2025 for quarterly reports. Early adoption is permitted. The new guidance must be applied retrospectively to all prior periods presented in the financial statements, with the significant segment expense and other segment item amounts disclosed based on categories identified in the period of adoption. We are still evaluating the impacts this ASU will have on our notes to the consolidated financial statements.
Income Taxes (Topic 740) – Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures:
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09 to improve income tax disclosure requirements under ASC 740, Income Taxes. The guidance requires entities to provide separate information about a reporting entity’s effective tax rate reconciliation and about income taxes paid. This ASU will be effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2024 and will impact our 2025 annual report. The guidance will be applied on a prospective basis with the option to apply the standard retrospectively. Early adoption is permitted. While the standard will require additional disclosures related to the Company’s income taxes, we do not expect this ASU to have a significant impact on our financial statements.
Note 4. Acquisitions and Divestitures
Divestitures
Russia Infant Transaction:
On March 11, 2024, we closed and finalized the sale of our infant nutrition business in Russia to a third party for total cash consideration of approximately $25 million (the “Russia Infant Transaction”). As a result of the Russia Infant Transaction, we recognized an insignificant pre-tax gain in other expense/(income) on our consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 30, 2024.
Papua New Guinea Transaction:
On February 5, 2024, we closed and finalized the sale of 100% of the equity interests in our Papua New Guinea subsidiary, Hugo Canning Company Limited, to a third party for total cash consideration of approximately $22 million, which is to be paid incrementally over two years following the transaction closing date (the “Papua New Guinea Transaction”). As a result of the Papua New Guinea Transaction, we recognized a pre-tax loss on sale of business of approximately $80 million in other expense/(income) on our consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 30, 2024, of which approximately $41 million relates to the release of accumulated foreign currency losses.
Deal Costs:
We incurred insignificant deal costs for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and the three months ended April 1, 2023 related to our divestitures. We recognized these deal costs in selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”).

Note 5. Restructuring Activities
See our consolidated financial statements and related notes in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2023 for additional information on our restructuring activities.
Restructuring Activities:
We have restructuring programs globally, which are focused primarily on streamlining our organizational design. For the three months ended March 30, 2024, we eliminated approximately 50 positions related to these programs. As of March 30, 2024, we expect to eliminate approximately 100 additional positions during the remainder of 2024. For the three months ended March 30, 2024, restructuring activities resulted in income of $3 million and included a net benefit of $6 million from severance and employee benefit costs, $2 million of other restructuring costs, and $1 million of other exit costs. Restructuring activities resulted in income of $8 million for the three months ended April 1, 2023.
Our net liability balance for restructuring project costs that qualify as exit and disposal costs under U.S. GAAP was (in millions):
Severance and Employee Benefit CostsOther Exit CostsTotal
Balance at December 30, 2023$23 $14 $37 
Charges/(credits)(6)1 (5)
Cash payments(4)(1)(5)
Balance at March 30, 2024$13 $14 $27 
We expect the majority of the liability for severance and employee benefit costs as of March 30, 2024 to be paid in the second quarter of 2024. The liability for other exit costs primarily relates to lease obligations. The cash impact of these obligations will continue for the duration of the lease terms, which expire between 2024 and 2031.

Note 7. Goodwill and Intangible Assets
Goodwill:
As described in Note 1, Basis of Presentation, in the first quarter of 2024, we divided our International segment into three operating segments — EPDM, WEEM, and AEM. While this reorganization resulted in a change to our operating segments, it did not impact the existing composition of our reporting units that formerly comprised the goodwill balance of our International segment — Northern Europe, Continental Europe, Latin America (“LATAM”), and Asia — and, therefore, was not indicative of an impairment trigger. We have reflected the impact of this segment change in all historical periods presented.
Changes in the carrying amount of goodwill, by segment, were (in millions):

Balance at March 30, 2024$27,233 $2,644 $513 $30,390 
(a)    Emerging Markets represents the aggregation of our WEEM and AEM operating segments.
As of March 30, 2024, we maintain 11 reporting units, seven of which comprise our goodwill balance. These seven reporting units had an aggregate goodwill carrying value of $30.4 billion at March 30, 2024.
Accumulated impairment losses to goodwill were $11.8 billion as of March 30, 2024 and as of December 30, 2023
No events occurred during the three months ended March 30, 2024 or the three months ended April 1, 2023 that indicated it was more likely than not that our goodwill was impaired.
Additional Goodwill Considerations
Our reporting units that were impaired in 2023 were written down to their respective fair values resulting in zero excess fair value over carrying amount as of the applicable impairment test dates. As of our 2023 annual impairment test, our reporting units with 20% or less fair value over carrying amount had an aggregate goodwill carrying amount of $30.1 billion and included Taste, Meals, and Away From Home (“TMA”); Fresh, Beverages, and Desserts (“FBD”); Northern Europe; Continental Europe; Canada and North America Coffee (“CNAC”); and LATAM. Our Asia reporting unit had between 20-50% fair value over carrying amount with an aggregate goodwill carrying amount of $309 million as of our 2023 annual impairment test date. Accordingly, our reporting units that had 20% or less excess fair value over carrying amount as of our 2023 annual impairment test have a heightened risk of future impairments if any assumptions, estimates, or market factors change in the future. Although the remaining reporting unit had more than 20% excess fair value over carrying amount as of our 2023 annual impairment test, this amount is also susceptible to impairments if any assumptions, estimates, or market factors significantly change in the future.
9


Fair value determinations require considerable judgment and are sensitive to changes in underlying assumptions, estimates, and market factors. Estimating the fair value of individual reporting units requires us to make assumptions and estimates regarding our future plans, as well as industry, economic, and regulatory conditions. These assumptions and estimates include estimated future annual net cash flows (including net sales, cost of products sold, SG&A, depreciation and amortization, working capital, and capital expenditures), income tax rates, discount rates, growth rates, and other market factors. Our current expectations also include certain assumptions that could be negatively impacted if we are unable to meet our pricing expectations in relation to inflation. If current expectations of future growth rates and margins are not met, if market factors outside of our control, such as discount rates, market capitalization, income tax rates, foreign currency exchange rates, or inflation, change, or if management’s expectations or plans otherwise change, including updates to our long-term operating plans, then one or more of our reporting units might become impaired in the future. Additionally, any decisions to divest certain non-strategic assets has led and could in the future lead to goodwill impairments.
As of the first day of the second quarter 2024, certain organizational changes occurred that impacted our reporting unit composition within our North America segment. Our four North America reporting units — TMA, FBD, CNAC, and Other North America — were reorganized into the six reporting units: Taste Elevation, Ready Meals and Snacking (“TMS”), Hydration & Desserts (“HD”), Meat & Cheese (“M&C”), Away from Home & Kraft Heinz Ingredients (“AFH”), CNAC, and Other North America. We have determined these changes represent a change in composition for the TMA and FBD reporting units as they have been reorganized into TMS, HD, M&C, and AFH reporting units and will require an interim impairment test (or transition test) in the second quarter of 2024.
Indefinite-lived intangible assets:
Changes in the carrying amount of indefinite-lived intangible assets, which primarily consisted of trademarks, were (in millions):
Balance at December 30, 2023$38,502 
Translation adjustments and other(62)
Balance at March 30, 2024$38,440 
Our indefinite-lived intangible asset balance primarily consists of a number of individual brands, which had an aggregate carrying amount of $38.4 billion at March 30, 2024.
No events occurred during the three months ended March 30, 2024 or the three months ended April 1, 2023 that indicated it was more likely than not that any brand was impaired.
Additional Indefinite-Lived Intangible Asset Considerations
Our brands that were impaired in 2023 were written down to their respective fair values resulting in zero excess fair value over carrying amount as of the applicable impairment test dates. As of the latest impairment test, brands with 20% or less fair value over carrying amount had an aggregate carrying amount after impairment of $18.7 billion, brands with between 20-50% fair value over carrying amount had an aggregate carrying amount of $4.2 billion, and brands that had over 50% fair value over carrying amount had an aggregate carrying amount of $15.7 billion. Accordingly, these and other individual brands that had 20% or less excess fair value over carrying amount as of our 2023 annual impairment test have a heightened risk of future impairments if any assumptions, estimates, or market factors change in the future. Although the remaining brands had more than 20% excess fair value over carrying amount as of our 2023 annual impairment test, these amounts are also susceptible to impairments if any assumptions, estimates, or market factors significantly change in the future.
Fair value determinations require considerable judgment and are sensitive to changes in underlying assumptions, estimates, and market factors. Estimating the fair value of individual brands requires us to make assumptions and estimates regarding our future plans, as well as industry, economic, and regulatory conditions. These assumptions and estimates include estimated future annual net cash flows, income tax considerations, discount rates, growth rates, royalty rates, contributory asset charges, and other market factors. Our current expectations also include certain assumptions that could be negatively impacted if we are unable to meet our pricing expectations in relation to inflation. If current expectations of future growth rates and margins are not met, if market factors outside of our control, such as discount rates, market capitalization, income tax rates, foreign currency exchange rates, or inflation, change, or if management’s expectations or plans otherwise change, including updates to our long-term operating plans, then one or more of our brands might become impaired in the future. Additionally, any decisions to divest certain non-strategic assets has led and could in the future lead to intangible asset impairments.

Amortization expense for definite-lived intangible assets was $64 million for the three months March 30, 2024 and $62 million for the three months ended April 1, 2023. Aside from amortization expense, the change in definite-lived intangible assets from December 30, 2023 to March 30, 2024 primarily related to the impacts of foreign currency.
We estimate that amortization expense related to definite-lived intangible assets will be approximately $260 million in 2024, $260 million in each of the following three years, and $250 million in 2028 and 2029.
Note 8. Income Taxes
The provision for income taxes consists of provisions for federal, state, and non-U.S. income taxes. We operate in an international environment; accordingly, the consolidated effective tax rate is a composite rate reflecting the earnings in various locations and the applicable tax rates. Additionally, the calculation of the percentage point impact of goodwill impairment and other items on the effective tax rate is affected by income/(loss) before income taxes. Further, small movements in tax rates due to a change in tax law or a change in tax rates that cause us to revalue our deferred tax balances produce volatility in our effective tax rate. Our quarterly income tax provision is determined based on our estimated full year effective tax rate, adjusted for tax attributable to infrequent or unusual items, which are recognized on a discrete period basis in the income tax provision for the period in which they occur.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 30, 2024 was an expense of 21.9% on pre-tax income. Our effective tax rate was favorably impacted by the geographic mix of pre-tax income in various non-U.S. jurisdictions. This impact was partially offset by unfavorable items, primarily from establishing a valuation allowance on the deferred tax asset for the U.S. capital loss carryover generated from our divestiture activities.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended April 1, 2023 was an expense of 20.3% on pre-tax income. Our effective tax rate was favorably impacted by the geographic mix of pre-tax income in various non-U.S. jurisdictions.
The year-over-year increase in the effective tax rate for the three month period was driven by certain net discrete items, primarily due to establishing a valuation allowance on the deferred tax asset for the U.S. capital loss carryover generated from our divestiture activities, as well as from a less favorable geographic mix of pre-tax income.
Other Income Tax Matters:
We are currently under examination for income taxes by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) for the years 2018 through 2022. In the third quarter of 2023, we received two Notices of Proposed Adjustment (the “NOPAs”) relating to transfer pricing with our foreign subsidiaries. The NOPAs propose an increase to our U.S. taxable income that could result in additional U.S. federal income tax expense and liability of approximately $200 million for 2018 and approximately $210 million for 2019, excluding interest, and assert penalties of approximately $85 million for each of 2018 and 2019. We strongly disagree with the IRS’s positions, believe that our tax positions are well documented and properly supported, and intend to vigorously contest the positions taken by the IRS and pursue all available administrative and judicial remedies. Therefore, we have not recorded any reserves related to this issue. We continue to maintain the same operating model and transfer pricing methodology with our foreign subsidiaries that was in place for the years 2018 and 2019, and the IRS began its audit of 2020, 2021, and 2022 during the first quarter of 2024. We believe our income tax reserves are appropriate for all open tax years and that final adjudication of this matter will not have a material impact on our results of operations and cash flows. However, the ultimate outcome of this matter is uncertain, and if we are required to pay the IRS additional U.S. taxes, interest, and/or potential penalties, our results of operations and cash flows could be materially affected.

Our derivative financial instruments are subject to master netting arrangements that allow for the offset of assets and liabilities in the event of default or early termination of the contract. We elect to record the gross assets and liabilities of our derivative financial instruments on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. If the derivative financial instruments had been netted on the condensed consolidated balance sheets, the asset and liability positions each would have been reduced by $156 million at March 30, 2024 and $130 million at December 30, 2023. We had posted collateral related to commodity derivative margin requirements of $15 million at March 30, 2024 and $41 million at December 30, 2023, which were included in prepaid expenses on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Level 1 financial assets and liabilities consist of commodity future and options contracts and are valued using quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
Level 2 financial assets and liabilities consist of commodity swaps, foreign exchange forwards, options, and swaps, and cross-currency swaps. Commodity swaps are valued using an income approach based on the observable market commodity index prices less the contract rate multiplied by the notional amount. Foreign exchange forwards and swaps are valued using an income approach based on observable market forward rates less the contract rate multiplied by the notional amount. Foreign exchange options are valued using an income approach based on a Black-Scholes-Merton formula. This formula uses present value techniques and reflects the time value and intrinsic value based on observable market rates. Cross-currency swaps are valued based on observable market spot and swap rates.
We did not have any Level 3 financial assets or liabilities in any period presented.
Our calculation of the fair value of financial instruments takes into consideration the risk of nonperformance, including counterparty credit risk.
Net Investment Hedging:
At March 30, 2024, we had the following items designated as net investment hedges:
Non-derivative foreign-currency denominated debt with principal amounts of €100 million and £400 million; and
Cross-currency contracts with notional amounts of C$1.4 billion ($1.0 billion), €2.3 billion ($2.5 billion), and JPY9.6 billion ($68 million).
We periodically use non-derivative instruments such as non-U.S. dollar financing transactions or non-U.S. dollar assets or liabilities, including intercompany loans, to hedge the exposure of changes in underlying foreign-currency denominated subsidiary net assets, and they are designated as net investment hedges. At March 30, 2024, we had euro intercompany loans with an aggregate notional amount of $782 million designated as net investment hedges.
The component of the gains and losses on our net investment in these designated foreign operations, driven by changes in foreign exchange rates, are economically offset by fair value movements on the effective portion of our cross-currency contracts and foreign exchange contracts and remeasurements of our foreign-currency denominated debt.
Cash Flow Hedge Coverage:
At March 30, 2024, we had entered into foreign exchange contracts designated as cash flow hedges for periods not exceeding the next 22 months and into cross-currency contracts designated as cash flow hedges for periods not exceeding the next 50 months.
Deferred Hedging Gains and Losses on Cash Flow Hedges:
Based on our valuation at March 30, 2024 and assuming market rates remain constant through contract maturities, we expect transfers to net income/(loss) of the existing losses reported in accumulated other comprehensive income/(losses) on cross-currency cash flow hedges and interest rate cash flow hedges during the next 12 months to be insignificant. Additionally, we expect transfers to net income/(loss) of the existing gains reported in other comprehensive income/(losses) on foreign-currency cash flow hedges during the next 12 months to be insignificant.

Note 13. Financing Arrangements
Transfers of Financial Assets:
We have a nonrecourse accounts receivable factoring program whereby certain eligible receivables are sold to third party financial institutions in exchange for cash. The program provides us with an additional means for managing liquidity. Under the terms of the arrangement, we act as the collecting agent on behalf of the financial institutions to collect amounts due from customers for the receivables sold. We account for the transfer of receivables as a true sale at the point control is transferred through derecognition of the receivable on our condensed consolidated balance sheet. There were no receivables sold under this accounts receivable factoring program during the three months ended March 30, 2024, and no amounts outstanding as of March 30, 2024. Receivables sold under this accounts receivable factoring program were $100 million during the three months ended April 1, 2023, and there were no amounts outstanding as of December 30, 2023. There were no incremental costs of factoring receivables under this arrangement for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and an insignificant amount for the three months ended April 1, 2023. The proceeds from the sales of receivables are included in cash flows from operating activities on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.
As collecting agent on the sold receivables, we had no cash collected that was not yet remitted to the third party financial institution as of March 30, 2024 or December 30, 2023.We had $68 million of cash collected that was not yet remitted to the third party financial institutions as of April 1, 2023. This obligation is reported within other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of April 1, 2023 and within cash flows from financing activities on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months ended April 1, 2023.
19


Trade Payables Programs:
In order to manage our cash flow and related liquidity, we work with our suppliers to optimize our terms and conditions, which include the extension of payment terms. Our current payment terms with our suppliers, which we deem to be commercially reasonable, generally range from 0 to 250 days. We also maintain agreements with third party administrators that allow participating suppliers to track payment obligations from us, and, at the sole discretion of the supplier, sell one or more of those payment obligations to participating financial institutions. We have no economic interest in a supplier’s decision to enter into these agreements and no direct financial relationship with the financial institutions related to these programs. We pledged no assets in connection with our trade payable programs. Our obligations to our suppliers, including amounts due and scheduled payment terms, are not impacted. All amounts due to participating suppliers are paid to the third party on the original invoice due dates, regardless of whether a particular invoice was sold. Supplier participation in these agreements is voluntary. We estimate that the amounts outstanding under these programs were $0.8 billion at March 30, 2024 and $0.8 billion at December 30, 2023. The amounts were included in trade payables on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Note 14. Commitments, Contingencies, and Debt
Legal Proceedings
We are involved in legal proceedings, claims, and governmental inquiries, inspections, or investigations (“Legal Matters”) arising in the ordinary course of our business. While we cannot predict with certainty the results of Legal Matters in which we are currently involved or may in the future be involved, we do not expect that the ultimate costs to resolve the Legal Matters that are currently pending will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.
Class Actions and Stockholder Derivative Actions:
Certain of The Kraft Heinz Company’s current and former officers and directors and 3G Capital, Inc. and several of its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “3G Entities”) are named as defendants in two stockholder derivative actions pending in the Delaware Court of Chancery, Datnoff, et al. v. Behring, et al., which was filed on May 6, 2022, and Felicetti, et al. v. Behring, et al., which was filed on March 6, 2023. The complaints allege state law claims and contend that The Kraft Heinz Company’s Board of Directors wrongfully refused plaintiffs’ demands to pursue legal action against the named defendants. Specifically, the complaints allege that certain of the Company’s current and former officers and directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company by purportedly making materially misleading statements and omissions regarding the Company’s financial performance and the impairment of its goodwill and intangible assets. The complaints further allege that the 3G Entities and certain of the Company’s current and former officers and directors breached their fiduciary duties by engaging in insider trading and misappropriating the Company’s material, non-public information, or aided and abetted such alleged breaches of fiduciary duty. The complaints seek relief against the defendants, principally in the form of damages, disgorgement of all profits obtained from the alleged insider trading, contribution and indemnification, and an award of attorneys’ fees and costs. We intend to vigorously defend against these lawsuits; however, we cannot reasonably estimate the potential range of loss, if any, due to the early stage of the proceedings.
Certain of The Kraft Heinz Company’s current and former officers and directors and the 3G Entities were also named as defendants in a consolidated stockholder derivative action, In re Kraft Heinz Company Derivative Litigation, which was filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery. The consolidated amended complaint, which was filed on April 27, 2020, alleged state law claims, contending that the 3G Entities were controlling stockholders who owed fiduciary duties to the Company, and that they breached those duties by allegedly engaging in insider trading and misappropriating the Company’s material, non-public information. The complaint further alleged that certain of The Kraft Heinz Company’s current and former officers and directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company by purportedly making materially misleading statements and omissions regarding the Company’s financial performance and the impairment of its goodwill and intangible assets, and by supposedly approving or allowing the 3G Entities’ alleged insider trading. The complaint sought relief against the defendants in the form of damages, disgorgement of all profits obtained from the alleged insider trading, contribution and indemnification, and an award of attorneys’ fees and costs. The defendants filed a motion to dismiss the consolidated amended complaint, which motion the Delaware Chancery Court granted in an order dated December 15, 2021. The plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal on January 13, 2022, and the Delaware Supreme Court affirmed the trial court’s dismissal with prejudice of the consolidated amended complaint in an order dated August 1, 2022. One of the plaintiffs in said dismissed derivative litigation subsequently filed a new complaint, Erste Asset Management v. Hees, et al., against certain current and former officers and directors of The Kraft Heinz Company on November 28, 2023 in the Delaware Court of Chancery, seeking to reinstate the plaintiff’s previously-dismissed claims and recover attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in the dismissed litigation on the basis of alleged newly discovered evidence. Specifically, the plaintiff alleges the 3G Entities caused the Company to make false and misleading public disclosures regarding the independence of two directors of The Kraft Heinz Company, one of whose independence plaintiff contends formed a basis for the court’s prior dismissal of the consolidated amended complaint. We intend to vigorously defend against this lawsuit; however, we cannot reasonably estimate the potential range of loss, if any, due to the early stage of the proceedings.

Environmental Actions:
Since March 2024, the Company has been engaged in ongoing discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice, joined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“U.S. EPA”) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, concerning alleged violations of the Clean Water Act related to a Company facility in Kendallville, Indiana. Previously, the Company entered into an Administrative Order on Consent with the U.S. EPA that requires the Company to implement a compliance plan to address related alleged violations of the Clean Water Act related to the facility in Kendallville, Indiana. While we cannot predict with certainty the resolution of these discussions, we do not expect that the ultimate costs to resolve this matter will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.
Debt
We may from time to time seek to retire or purchase our outstanding debt through redemptions, tender offers, cash purchases, prepayments, refinancing, exchange offers, open market or privately negotiated transactions, Rule 10b5-1 plans, or otherwise.
Borrowing Arrangements:
See Note 16, Debt, to our consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2023 for information on our borrowing arrangements.
Our long-term debt contains customary representations, covenants, and events of default. We were in compliance with all financial covenants as of March 30, 2024.
Debt Issuances:
In the first quarter of 2024, Kraft Heinz Foods Company (“KHFC”), our 100% owned operating subsidiary, issued 550 million euro aggregate principal amount of 3.500% senior notes due March 2029 (the “2024 Notes”). The 2024 Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by The Kraft Heinz Company as to payment of principal, premium, and interest on a senior unsecured basis. We expect to use the net proceeds from the 2024 Notes for general corporate purposes, including to fund the repayment of our 550 million euro senior notes due May 2024.
Debt Issuance Costs:
Debt issuance costs related to the 2024 Notes were insignificant.
Fair Value of Debt:
At March 30, 2024, the aggregate fair value of our total debt was $19.7 billion as compared with a carrying value of $20.5 billion.

Our short-term debt had a carrying value that approximated its fair value at March 30, 2024 and December 30, 2023. We determined the fair value of our long-term debt using Level 2 inputs. Fair values are generally estimated based on quoted market prices for identical or similar instruments.
