The Coca-Cola Company, the soft drinks giant, has reported a 5% rise in global volumes and net revenues in Q4 2011. Increased sales in Asia, North America and parts of Europe were cited among the reasons. Comparable earnings per share in the quarter were up 10% to $0.79. Overall revenues grew 33%, reflecting the acquisition of Coca-Cola Enterprise’s former North American operations in Q4 2010. Muhtar Kent, chairman and chief executive of the Coca-Cola Company, said, “We once again achieved financial results for both the year and the quarter in line with, or ahead of, our long-term targets, with quarterly volume and revenue growth in every one of our five geographic operating groups. Importantly, we also continued to increase our global volume and value share in 2011.” Among the countries to experience the greatest volume growth were Thailand (33%), India (15%), and China (13%), Argentina (12%) and Germany (9%).
