06:21 EDTSBMRYSABMiller reports Q2 group NPR increased 3%
Reports Q2 group net producer revenue per hectoliter grew by 4% in Q2. Reports total beverage volumes grew by 1% for the first six months on an organic basis, driven by "strong" performance across both lager and soft drinks in Latin America and Africa. SABMiller CEO Alan Clark said, "We achieved resilient net producer revenue growth in the first half, powered by our Africa and Latin America businesses. Our total beverage volume growth was impacted by weaker lager volume performance in Q2, balanced by strong growth in soft drinks. Financial performance has been affected by ongoing foreign currency movements as well as weaker Q2 trading conditions in China and Australia.” Reference Link
