LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coca-Cola European Partners plc (CCEP) (ticker symbol: CCE) will discuss its plans and outlook with investors at the Deutsche Bank Global Consumer Conference in Paris today, Wednesday, 13 June 2018, at 13:15 BST, 14:15 CEST, and 8:15 a.m. EDT. The public can access the presentation live via webcast through the company’s website at www.ccep.com.
Chief Executive Officer Damian Gammell and Chief Financial Officer Nik Jhangiani will deliver the remarks.
In the presentation, CCEP will affirm full-year 2018 guidance including revenue growth in a low single-digit range, with both operating profit and earnings per share growth of between 6 percent and 7 percent. Each of these growth figures is on a comparable and fx-neutral basis when compared to 2017 comparable results. This revenue growth guidance excludes the accounting impact of incremental soft drinks industry taxes. These taxes are expected to add approximately 2 percent to 3 percent to revenue growth and approximately 4 percent to cost of goods growth. At recent rates, currency translation would have a negligible impact on 2018 full-year diluted earnings per share.
