ATLANTA, Oct. 18, 2019 – The Coca-Cola Company continued to execute on its key strategies in the third quarter, with strong revenue growth and value share gains globally. Reported net revenues grew 8% and organic revenues (non-GAAP) grew 5%, driven by innovation, revenue growth management and improving execution. The company’s performance year-to-date has led to an update in full year guidance.
"Our performance gives us confidence that our strategies are taking hold with our consumers, customers and system," said James Quincey, chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. "We are positioning the company to create a better shared future for all of our stakeholders by delivering on our vision and growing sustainably."
Quarterly Performance
Revenues: Net revenues grew 8% to $9.5 billion. Organic revenues (non-GAAP) grew 5%. Revenue growth was driven by price/mix growth of 6%, partially offset by a 2% decline in concentrate sales.
Margin: Operating margin, which included items impacting comparability, was 26.3% versus 29.8% in the prior year. Comparable operating margin (non-GAAP) was 28.1% versus 30.7% in the prior year. Margins were unfavorably impacted by a 260 basis point headwind from currency and net acquisitions.
Earnings per share: EPS grew 37% to $0.60. Comparable EPS (non-GAAP) declined 2% to $0.56. Comparable EPS performance included the impact from a 6-point currency headwind.
Market share: The company continued to gain value share in total nonalcoholic ready-to-drink (NARTD) beverages.
Cash flow: Year-to-date cash from operations was $7.8 billion, up 37% largely due to strong underlying growth, working capital initiatives and the timing of tax payments. Year-to-date free cash flow (non-GAAP) was $6.6 billion, up 41%.
