Soft-drink volume up, profits down at Coca-ColaApril 22nd, 2009 - 11:38 am ICT by IANS
New York, April 22 (DPA) Soft-drink giant Coca-Cola Co reported a drop of 10 percent in first-quarter profits Tuesday, citing costs to restructure its German distribution.
Profits were $1.35 billion, or 58 cents per share, compared to $1.5 billion, or 64 cents per share, in the same period of 2008. The extra costs in Coke’s German operations pared off what would have been an additional 7 cents per share.
Worldwide, the firm’s volume of drinks sold was up 2 percent despite the global recession, but revenue dipped 2.8 percent to $7.17 billion.
