ATLANTA, April 23, 2019 – The Coca-Cola Company today reported a solid start to 2019, with continued momentum that included gaining global value share. Reported net revenues grew 5% in the first quarter, and organic revenues (non-GAAP) grew 6%, with positive performance across all operating groups, in addition to a benefit from timing.
"We're encouraged by our first quarter results as our disciplined growth strategies continue to deliver strong underlying performance," said James Quincey, CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. "We remain confident in our full year guidance as we continue to make progress on our transformation as a consumer-centric total beverage company."
Quarterly Performance
Revenues: Net revenues grew 5% to $8.0 billion. Organic revenues (non-GAAP) grew 6%. An estimated 2 points of revenue growth was attributable to timing, primarily related to bottler inventory build in order to manage uncertainty related to Brexit. Additionally, the quarter included one less day, which resulted in an approximate 1-point headwind to revenue growth.
Margin: Operating margin for the quarter, which included items impacting comparability, was 29.1% versus 23.7% in the prior year. Comparable operating margin (non-GAAP) was 30.5% versus 30.7% in the prior year. Strong underlying margin (non-GAAP) expansion was offset by an approximate 260 basis point negative impact from currency headwinds and net acquisitions.
Earnings per share: EPS from continuing operations grew 24% to $0.38. Comparable EPS from continuing operations (non-GAAP) grew 2% to $0.48, despite an 11-point currency headwind. EPS included an estimated 2 cent benefit from timing, primarily from the bottler inventory build related to Brexit.
