Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has posted net sales of $8.1bn for the full-year 2012, down 2.5% on reported basis and up 3% on currency neutral basis, compared to a year ago.

Comparable operating income fell from $1bn in 2011 to $928m in 2012, down 4% on reported basis and up 2.5% on comparable and currency neutral basis.

Full-year 2012 volume decreased 3%, as against 2011.

Among the brands, volume of sparkling brands fell 3.5%; however, Coca-Cola Zero continued to perform well with growth of 6.5%, while energy grew over 15%, led by Monster.

Volume of still brands for the full-year 2012 was constant, as growth in Capri-Sun, Nestea, Chaudfontaine and Abbey Well waters was balanced by declines in juices, juice drinks, and sports drinks.

Both Europe and Great Britain reported 3% loss in volume in the full-year 2012.

CCE chairman and CEO John F Brock said they reported solid earnings per share growth in 2012 while working through significant marketplace challenges and the ongoing macroeconomic softness that continues to affect their territories.

"Managing through these factors, we also delivered modest comparable, currency neutral net sales and operating income growth, and strong free cash flow," Brock added.

"Going forward, we will continue to focus on value-creating opportunities in order to achieve sustained growth and to deliver on our most important goal – creating value for our shareowners."
