John Brock – Chairman
Bill Douglas – Chief Financial Officer
Thor Erickson – Vice President, Investor Relations
Okay. Hello. Enterprises. Very happy to have John Brock and Bill Douglas back at the conference this year. You guys are more than welcome to stay. And without further ado, I hand it over to the team. Thanks.
Thanks everyone. Good afternoon. I’m pleased to be here with you today to talk a little bit about Coca-Cola Enterprises including our goals, our objectives and the answer to your questions. Joining me today are Bill Douglas, who is our Chief Financial Officer; and Thor Erickson, who is Vice President of Investor Relations.
Before we begin, I’d like to ask you to take a look at our forward-looking comments because all of our comments should be considered in conjunction with the cautionary language in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and subsequent SEC filings. A copy of this info is available on our website at www.cokecce.com.
As most of you know, in October 2010, we completed a transaction with the Coca-Cola Company that transformed Coca-Cola Enterprises and into the company we are today, as we sold our entire North American business and we acquired the Coca-Cola Company’s bottling businesses in both Norway and Sweden.
This created a new CCE that today is the preeminent Western European Coca-Cola bottler and one of Coca-Cola Company’s largest bottling partners. In the process, good news, we unlock significant shareowner value. And we established a company that’s clearly focused on driving growth and creating value.
