Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (NASDAQ: COKE) today announced it earned $5.9 million, or basic net income per share of $.64, on net sales of $359.6 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to net income of $4.7 million, or basic net income per share of $.51, on net sales of $347.5 million for the first quarter of 2010. The results for the first quarter of 2011 included $0.4 million of after-tax losses ($0.7 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on fuel and aluminum hedges. The results for the first quarter of 2010 included $0.1 million of after-tax gains ($0.2 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on fuel and aluminum hedges and a $0.5 million increase in income tax expense due to the change in tax law eliminating the tax deduction once available for Medicare Part D subsidies.

On a comparable basis, the Company earned $6.4 million in the first quarter of 2011, or comparable basic net income per share of $.69, versus $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2010, or comparable basic net income per share of $.54.
