Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

PepsiCo, Inc. today released the following statement from Chairman and CEO Indra K. Nooyi:

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Saad Abdul-Latif, our Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA).

"Saad was much more than a business leader. He was a deep personal friend to so many PepsiCo family members in every corner of the globe. The thoughts and prayers of PepsiCo associates are with Saad and his family during this difficult time.

"Effective immediately, Umran Beba -- in addition to her current responsibilities as SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer for PepsiCo AMEA -- will serve temporarily as acting sector head for PepsiCo AMEA until a permanent replacement is announced.

"PepsiCo AMEA has a strong and deep leadership team in place, and from top to bottom the team there sets the standard for management, growth, execution and teamwork. I’m extremely grateful to every member of our AMEA family for their hard work and dedication."

The information in this Item 7.01 is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, except as otherwise expressly stated in such filing.
