Hello all!

Am looking into buying Pepsi stock and was trying to calculate Free Cash Flow. Yet I cannot seem to find the Property, Plants and Equipment number in the 1999 10-K report. Here is what it looks like:

Investing Activities 1999

Capital spending............................(1,118)
Acquisition and investments in unconsolidated affiliates....................................(430)
Sales of businesses............................499
Sales of property, plant and equipment.........126
Short-term investments, by original maturity
More than three months-purchases..........(2,025)
More than three months-maturities..........2,008
Three months or less, net....................12
Other, net....................................(144)

Net Cash Used for Investing Activities.........(1,072)
------

Here is website for 10-K report if you have the time:

The only # I can find is the SALE of PPE. Is it possible there was no purchase of PPE. There isnt a number for 98 or 97 either. I know that they had purchased Tropicana and had sold some bottling companies..(I think)...so maybe that is why there is no figure?

Thanks for the help!
