Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. Reports Third-Quarter 2011 Results
  • Third-quarter diluted earnings per common share totaled 88 cents on a reported basis, or 72 cents on a comparable basis.
  • Revenue totaled $2.1 billion on a reported and comparable basis, up 11 percent over prior year pro forma results and up 3 percent on a currency neutral basis.
  • Operating income was $330 million on a reported basis, an increase of 35 percent. Comparable operating income was $335 million, an increase of 12 percent over prior year pro forma results, and up 3½ percent on a comparable and currency neutral basis.
  • Volume increased 1 percent reflecting prior year new product and promotional hurdles and poor weather in July.
  • CCE now expects 2011 comparable diluted earnings per common share in a range of $2.14 to $2.18, including a currency benefit of approximately 15 cents at recent rates.

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE/Euronext Paris: CCE) today reported third-quarter 2011 operating income of $330 million, or $335 million on a comparable basis. Diluted earnings per common share for the third quarter were 88 cents, or 72 cents on a comparable basis. Currency translation positively affected third-quarter results by 5 cents per share compared to prior year.

Items affecting comparability and other pro forma adjustments are detailed on pages 10 through 14 of this release.

“Our business continues to generate solid results, driven by outstanding execution, increasing effectiveness, and cost control,” said John F. Brock, chairman and chief executive officer. “By maintaining our focus on our key operating strategies, we were able to work through a challenging quarter, and we are on track to deliver against our improved full-year guidance.

“We remain committed to our long-term goal of creating increasing levels of shareowner value through consistent, sustained growth in our operating results,” Mr. Brock said. “As previously announced, we will complete our current share repurchase program by the end of 2011 and begin a new $1 billion program, with a goal of repurchasing no less than $500 million next year.”

OPERATING REVIEW

Third-quarter revenue totaled $2.1 billion, an increase of 11 percent from pro forma 2010 results, and up 3 percent on a currency neutral basis. Comparable quarterly operating income was up 12 percent over prior year pro forma results, and up 3½ percent on a comparable and currency neutral basis.

Third-quarter volume growth of 1 percent reflects the comparison to solid growth in the same quarter a year ago and the impact of challenging weather conditions early in the quarter. On a territory basis, volume in Great Britain increased 2 percent, and continental European volume increased ½ percent.

Net pricing per case grew 2 percent. Cost of sales per case grew 4 percent, driven by expected commodity cost increases and year-over-year comparables. Operating expenses decreased 1½ percent on a comparable and currency neutral basis.

Volume performance during the quarter was driven by ongoing solid results for our core Coca-Cola trademark sparkling brands across all territories, with volume up 2½ percent and continued growth in energy, which was up more than 35 percent, benefiting from growth in Monster brands and the introduction of Powerade Energy.

Still beverage volume declined approximately 5 percent as growth in Powerade sports drink and Ocean Spray was offset by soft segment demand for still beverages, timing of promotions, and strong comparable growth a year ago.

“Our commitment to excellence in customer service allows us to work closely with our customers to meet market and consumer needs,” said Hubert Patricot, executive vice president and president, European Group. “The experience and marketplace knowledge of our team has enabled us to manage the business effectively, and we remain focused on delivering our full-year goals and building on our foundation of growth for 2012 and beyond.”

FULL-YEAR 2011 OUTLOOK

CCE now expects earnings per diluted common share in a range of $2.14 to $2.18. This includes a currency benefit of approximately 15 cents to full-year earnings per share based on recent rates.

Revenue is expected to grow in a mid single-digit range, with expected operating income growth in a high single-digit range. Full-year cost of goods sold per case is expected to increase approximately 3 percent to 3½ percent. Gross margins are expected to be down modestly for the full year. Operating margins are expected to be up modestly for the full year. This outlook is comparable, currency neutral, and relative to 2010 pro forma financials.

The company also expects free cash flow of at least $500 million, with capital expenditures in a range of $375 to $400 million. Weighted average cost of debt is expected to be approximately 3 percent and the effective tax rate for 2011 is expected to be in a range of 26 percent to 27 percent.

SHARE REPURCHASE

CCE is on track to complete its current share repurchase program of $1 billion by the end of 2011. Since the program was announced in the fourth quarter of 2010, the company has purchased $800 million of its shares, including $200 million in the third quarter.

As previously announced, the Board of Directors has approved a new share repurchase program to begin once the current program is completed. This new program carries a target of $1 billion in share repurchases, and the company intends to purchase no less than $500 million worth of shares in 2012. These plans may be adjusted depending on economic, operating, or other factors, including acquisition opportunities.

(a) These non-GAAP measures are provided to allow investors to more clearly evaluate our operating performance and business trends. Management uses this information to review results excluding items that are not necessarily indicative of ongoing results. The adjusting items are based on established defined terms and thresholds and represent all material items management considered for year-over-year comparability.
(b) As reflected in CCE's Third Quarter 2011 U.S. GAAP Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
(c) Amounts represent the net out of period mark-to-market impact of non-designated commodity hedges.
(d) Amounts represent non-recurring restructuring charges. Prior to the fourth quarter of 2010, these amounts only include those related to legacy CCE's Europe operating segment and do not include any legacy CCE corporate amounts.
(e) Amounts represent post-Merger changes to certain underlying tax matters covered by our indemnification to TCCC for periods prior to the Merger.

(f) As reflected in CCE's Third Quarter 2010 U.S. GAAP Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

(g) Adjustment to reflect a segment measurement change that occurred in the first quarter of 2011 under which certain information technology-related costs incurred in Europe that were previously reported in our Corporate segment are now reported in our Europe operating segment. For the full-year 2010, approximately $45 million in total expenses will be recast from our Corporate segment to our Europe operating segment. This change did not impact our consolidated operating income for any period.
(h) Reflects historical financial statements of Norway and Sweden as adjusted for purchase accounting adjustments and accounting policy changes.
(i) Adjustment to exclude the SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") 55 allocation of corporate expenses of legacy CCE as it existed prior to the transaction with TCCC.
(j) Assumed three quarters of full-year estimated corporate expense of $185 million incurred evenly throughout the year.

(a)

The non-GAAP financial measure "Bottle and Can Net Pricing Per Case" is used to more clearly evaluate bottle and can pricing trends in the marketplace. The measure (1) excludes the impact of fountain volume and other items that are not directly associated with bottle and can pricing in the retail environment and (2) reflects the impact of the acquired bottling operations in Norway and Sweden as if they were acquired on January 1, 2010. Our bottle and can sales accounted for approximately 95 percent of our net revenues during the first nine months of 2011.

 
 
 
 
 
(b) The non-GAAP financial measures "Currency-Neutral Bottle and Can Net Pricing Per Case" and "Currency-Neutral Bottle and Can Cost of Sales per Case" are used to separate the impact of currency exchange rate changes on our operations.
 
 
(c) The non-GAAP financial measure "Bottle and Can Cost of Sales Per Case" is used to more clearly evaluate cost trends for bottle and can products. The measure (1) excludes the impact of fountain ingredient costs and other items not directly associated with the bottle and can cost environment and (2) reflects the impact of the acquired bottling operations in Norway and Sweden as if they were acquired on January 1, 2010.
 
 
 
(d) The non-GAAP measure "Comparable Bottle and Can Volume" is used to analyze the performance of our business on a constant period and territory basis. This measure reflects the impact of the acquired bottling operations in Norway and Sweden as if they were acquired on January 1, 2010. There were the same number of selling days in the third quarter of 2011 and 2010. There was one less selling day in the first nine months of 2011 versus the first nine months of 2010.
 
 
 
 
(e) The non-GAAP measure "Free Cash Flow" is provided to focus management and investors on the cash available for debt reduction, dividend distributions, share repurchase, and acquisition opportunities.
 
 
(f) Prior to the fourth quarter of 2010, the free cash flow calculation only includes legacy CCE's European operations and does not include any legacy CCE corporate amounts or amounts related to the bottling operations in Norway and Sweden.
 
 
(g) The non-GAAP measure "Net Debt" is used to more clearly evaluate our capital structure and leverage.
