Focus - Beam Inc's Q3 & YTD Performance by Region, Brand
Beam released its Q3 & YTD results today
The company posted a 1% drop in Q3 comparable net sales in the region, but a 4% increase in YTD. Third-quarter sales were down an estimated 5% because of the reduction of US distributor inventory levels, Beam said.
Europe, Middle East & Africa
Net sales increased by 3% in Q3 and 4% YTD. The company said it continued to deliver above-market performance, led by Jim Beam’s strength in Germany and across Europe.
Asia-Pacific & South America
There was a 20% drop in Q3 for comparable net sales in the region and a 10% drop in YTD. Beam said results were down an estimated 16% in Q3 and 10% YTD because of the timing of sales in Australia and in emerging markets, together with a challenging comparison in India. Courvoisier and Teacher’s brands were “particularly impacted”, Beam said.
