NEW YORK (AP) — PepsiCo Inc.’s second-quarter net income fell 3 percent on charges related to the company’s buyout of its two biggest bottlers, but the same deal pushed up revenue 40 percent and showed signs of paying off for its U.S. drinks business.
PepsiCo plans to remove sugary drinks from schools worldwide, following the success of programs in the U.S. aimed at cutting down on childhood obesity.
The company said Tuesday it will remove full-calorie, sweetened drinks from schools in more than 200 countries by 2012, marking the first such move by a major soft drink producer.

Pepsi will not advertise its drinks in next year’s Super Bowl on CBS, ending a 23-year run so the company can focus on a new marketing effort that will appear mostly online.
Pepsi beverages have been advertised in the Super Bowl since 1987. Frito-Lay, a unit of parent company PepsiCo Inc., will still advertise.
The company, which is based in Purchase, N.Y., spent $33 million advertising products like Pepsi, Gat-orade, and Cheetos last year during the Super Bowl, according to TNS Media Intelligence, $15 million of it on Pepsi alone.
Pepsi Bottling Group Inc. said it has rejected what it called a “grossly inadequate” acquisition offer from PepsiCo Inc., but analysts said that doesn’t mean the deal is over, just that Pepsi needs to offer more money.
PepsiCo Inc. is cutting jobs and closing factories to give it some “breathing room” to navigate the volatility that has permeated all corners of the global economy.
