In 1Q16, $PEP's operations outside of the U.S. generated 34% of net revenue, with Mexico, Canada, Russia, the U.K. and Brazil comprising about 15% of net revenue. Unfavorable FX negatively impacted net revenue performance by 4.5 points, primarily due to the Mexican peso, Brazilian real, Russian ruble, Canadian dollar and the Argentine peso.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s.
