The Texas-based soft-drink maker said yesterday (9 September) that it expects to see net sales rise by 2% to 4% for this year.
Earnings per share are expected to come in between US$2.03 and $2.11, including a net gain on its Hansen contract termination payment and the sale of certain distribution rights.
Excluding certain items the company sees 2009 earnings per share of $1.88 to $1.96.
