Coca-Cola has reported worldwide unit case volume growth of 3% in the year-to-date ended 28 June 2013, as against the 2012 figures.

Global volume growth in the second quarter (Q2) ended 28 June 2013 was up by 1% compared to the global volume growth in the prioryear period.

The company reported solid global volume and value share gains in the quarter in total non-alcoholic ready-to-drink (NARTD) beverages and in sparkling and still beverages.

Net operating revenues during the six months ended 28 June 2013 were $23.78bn, down by 2%, as against net operating revenues of $24.22bn for the same period in 2012.

During the second quarter, net operating revenues declined 3% to $12.7bn from $13.08bn in Q2 2012.

Gross profit in the first half of 2013 was $14.47bn, down by 1%, compared to gross profit of $14.65bn in the comparable period last year.

The gross profit for the three months ended 28 June 2013 declined by 1% from $7.86bn in 2012 to $7.76bn in 2013.

Coca-Cola CEO and chairman Muhtar Kent said the company’s second quarter volume results came in below their expectations, reflecting an ongoing challenging global macroeconomic environment and unusually poor weather conditions in the quarter.

"While we are not happy with our performance, we did gain global volume and value share in total nonalcoholic ready-to-drink beverages as well as in sparkling and still beverages in the quarter," Kent added.

"Despite the headwinds in the quarter, we are committed to improving upon our results, with current dynamics leading us to believe that our performance will be better in the second half of the year. We remain confident in our 2020 Vision and our system’s ability to execute with precision around the world.

"In this context, we remain firmly focused on investing alongside our global bottling partners to strengthen our system for the future, to deliver the brands and beverages that consumers love and to achieve our long-term performance goals."
