DPSG revealed a moderate rise in YTD profits and sales

Dr Pepper Snapple Group has reported a single-digit rise in nine-month profits and sales, but warned that the "uncertain economic and cautious consumer environment" it operates in is continuing.

Net profits in the nine months to the end of September rose by 4.3% to US$459m, the US-based soft drinks group said today (24 October). Year-to-date sales were up by 1.6% to $4.5bn. 

Operating profits in the same period saw a rise of 6.2% to $800m, reversing a slide in profits in H1.

Third quarter net profits increase by 16.2% to $179m, while sales in the period were flat at $1.53bn. Volume sales in Q3 fell by 3%, with branded volumes down 3% and contract manufacturing volumes sliding 6%.

The group's president & CEO, Larry Young, said: “We continue to operate in an uncertain economic and cautious consumer environment."

Looking ahead, the company said it expects its full-year net sales growth to be around 2% and core EPS to be in the region of $2.90 to $2.98.
