Coca-Cola's Management Presents At Deutsche Bank Global Consumer Conference (Transcript)

We’re building on success with the proven track record of growth, a strong commitment to shareowners and a clear operating framework which guides our company. We are driving growth and we are delivering value with the right brands, the right markets and we are doing it sustainably and in the right way.

So what does CCE look like today? We’re a company which had revenue in 2011 of $8.3 billion. We served some 170 million consumers who consume more than 30 billion servings of our products each year, a total reached through six consecutive years of growth.

We manufacture our products at 17 locations, each a component of our Pan-European supply chain. We have a total workforce of more than 13,000, including one of the largest sales forces of any consumer products companies in our territories.

Most importantly, CCE has proven that we have the size, the scope, the plans and the teams to continue to be an effective competitor in what is a very attractive category and this is despite having to navigate a challenging macro economic environment. We are optimistic about our ability to create sustained growth. This is inline with or above our long-term growth objectives. Much of the reason for this optimism is impact our track record as well as the balanced nature of our business.

For the past six years, we focused on creating value of our customers, consumers and shareowners and we are committed to doing so in the future. We’ve managed and we’ve executed through dynamic and often challenging times to drive sustained and balanced operating income growth. For example, over the past six years we have achieved average annual upgrading income growth of more than 8.5% each year, even as we continue to face ongoing macro economic weakness.

We have a solid balance sheet, strong free cash flow and a clear focus on creating value for each stakeholder in our company. Our results and our actions clearly demonstrate our commitment to increasing shareowner value.
