THE COCA-COLA COMPANY REPORTS
2009 FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR RESULTS

 

Today, our Company reports continued worldwide unit case volume growth in 2009, which drove share gains in sparkling, still and total nonalcoholic ready-to-drink beverages for the year, and full year profit growth in line with our long-term target.

 

·                  Strong worldwide unit case volume growth of 5% in the quarter and 3% for the full year, in line with our long-term volume target, and driven by international volume growth of 6% in the quarter and 4% for the full year.

 

·                  Fourth quarter reported EPS was $0.66, up 53%, with comparable EPS up 3% to $0.66.  Full year reported EPS was $2.93, up 18%, while comparable EPS was down 3% to $3.06 reflecting a negative currency impact.

 

·                  Reported operating income increased 4% in the quarter, and decreased 3% for the full year.  Comparable currency neutral operating income was even for the quarter, and grew 7% for the full year, in line with our long-term target.
