09:28 EDTDEODiageo reports organic net sales down 1.3% in Q3
Diageo said organic net sales declined 1.3%. Volume declined 2% in the nine months ended March 31 and 1% in the third quarter. As a result of recent developments in Venezuela, including the new currency exchange mechanism and the related reporting implications, Diageo has translated the groupís Venezuelan operations for the quarter and for the nine months at a rate of $1 = VEF49.81. Reported net sales were down 7.4% in the nine months due to the impact of adverse currency movements and the termination of the distribution agreement with Jose Cuervo. CEO Ivan Menezes said, "Our performance reflects the challenging environment we are operating in. Consumers in North America are most resilient, as are consumers of our reserve brands in most markets."

09:11 EDTDEODiageo reports Q3 sales down 0.7%
Diageo reports that in the nine months ended March 31, net sales declined 0.3% on an organic basis and were down 0.7% in the quarter, with volume down 1.7% in the nine month period and 0.8% in the quarter. In the nine month period reported net sales grew 4.6%. Acquisitions, principally United Spirits Limited, contributed GBP700M, partially offset by an adverse impact of currency movements of GBP298M and a reduction of GBP28M due to disposals. CEO Ivan Menezes commented: "Our performance in the quarter reflects continued tough conditions in the emerging markets and subdued consumer demand in some developed markets. However it also reflects the actions we have taken to ensure we are building a stronger business. Of key importance is that depletions continue to outpace shipments as we embed our sell out culture."
