Dutch brewer Heineken announced that its third-quarter profit declined from last year, amid lower revenues and drop in volumes.

Sales growth in emerging markets was offset by lower sales in Europe hurt by poor weather during the high selling season, company said.

Group’s net profit for the third quarter was €460m, compared with €483m a year ago.

Group revenues decreased 1.7% to €5.58bn from €5.67bn last year, amid a 0.2% decline in volumes.

Organically, group revenues edged up 0.7%, with group revenue per hectolitre increasing 0.9% from last year.

Consolidated revenue declined 1.5% to €5.10bn, which includes a negative net consolidation impact of 1.3% mainly from divestment of the Hartwall business in Finland in August 2013.

Geographically, in Africa Middle East, consolidated revenue grew 4.1% organically, and it was up 4.1% in the Americas. In Asia Pacific, the growth was 11.9% organically.

Meanwhile, organic revenue declined 6.4% in Central & Eastern Europe, and it was down 2.4% in Western Europe.

Group beer volume improved 0.1% organically, with positive growth momentum in Asia Pacific, Africa Middle East and the Americas region, but was offset by lower volumes in Europe.

Volume performance in Europe, compared to the first half of 2014, was slightly below expectations due to unseasonably wet weather conditions, the firm noted.

Heineken premium brand rose 3% organically, with growth across all regions. Heineken brand growth was particularly strong in markets including China, Brazil, Mexico, Taiwan, Russia, Canada and the UK, the company said.
