CHILE: Andina profits fall on Brazilian woes
The Coke bottler reported first-half 2003 net profit of 7.467 billion pesos, down from 21.417 billion pesos a year ago.
Meanwhile, operating profit fell 17.7% in the period to 14.924 billion pesos.
Andina, which operates in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, said sales volumes rose 3% in the period, but were pulled back by a 4% fall in Brazil. The company said this "explained partly by the increases in prices due to inflation and due to the sharp depreciation of the Brazilian real."
Revenues in January-June 2003 were down 4.8% to 193.347 billion pesos from a year earlier.
