General Mills (NYSE:GIS) experienced a more than 2% decline in its shares intra-day today after the company revised its full-year forecast downwards.

In its fiscal second quarter, General Mills reported an adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.25, an improvement from $1.10 in the same period last year and higher than the anticipated $1.15. However, net sales decreased by 1.6% year-over-year to $5.14 billion, falling short of the expected $5.35 billion.

The company now anticipates a slower volume recovery in fiscal 2024. This updated outlook is based on a more conservative consumer economic forecast and a quicker return to normal competitive availability on store shelves.

Consequently, organic net sales projections have been adjusted to a range between -1% and flat, a significant change from the previously estimated growth of 3-4%. This adjustment reflects the expected slower volume recovery in the upcoming fiscal year.

Additionally, General Mills now forecasts adjusted operating profit and adjusted diluted EPS to grow by 4-5% in constant currency, a slight decrease from the previously projected growth range of 4-6% in constant currency.
