Coca-Cola FEMSA Announces 2011 Third-Quarter and First Nine-Month Results

MEXICO CITY--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: KOFL) (NYSE: KOF) ("Coca-Cola FEMSA" or the "Company"), the largest public Coca-Cola bottler in the world in terms of sales volume, announces results for the third quarter of 2011.

  • Total revenues reached Ps. 30,332 million in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 18.1% compared to the third quarter of 2010 as a result of double-digit total revenue growth in each division.
  • Consolidated operating income grew 10.0% to Ps. 4,673 million for the third quarter of 2011, driven by double-digit operating income growth in our South America division and high single-digit operating income growth recorded in our Mexico & Central America division. Our operating margin was 15.4% in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Consolidated net income grew 10.4%, reaching Ps. 2,484 million in the third quarter of 2011.

"Despite increased global volatility, our Company delivered strong results for the quarter. Our operators' refined execution to serve and satisfy our consumers' preferences generated solid volume growth. This, combined with our strategy to selectively increase prices across our territories, produced double-digit top-line growth. As our Company continues to grow, so does our team of professionals -- not only in their capabilities, but also in the number of consumers they serve -- as exemplified by the successful merger with Grupo Tampico's beverage division and the upcoming merger with Grupo CIMSA. These transactions will greatly contribute to our business going forward and consolidate our leadership in the Mexican market. Together, we will leverage our mutual strengths to deliver increased value for our shareholders. As we enter the final part of the year, in the face of global economic challenges, we feel even stronger, with greater flexibility, to transform these challenges into opportunities in every operation; to capitalize on the defensive strength of our industry; and to extend our track record of profitable growth," said Carlos Salazar Lomelin, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
