We delivered a strong third quarter.
Unless otherwise stated, comments in this announcement refer to Q3 performance.
CEO Cees ’t Hart says: “We delivered a strong third quarter with all regions performing very well. Our craft & speciality portfolio and alcohol-free brews continued their good momentum, and in Asia Tuborg, Carlsberg and 1664 Blanc delivered strong growth rates. Results in the quarter were further boosted by the very good weather in Western Europe.
“We’re pleased that last week we were able to increase our full-year earnings expectations, and we feel confident that 2018 will show solid top-line growth, margin improvement and a healthy cash flow, whilst we have invested significant funds in our strategic priorities to drive the long-term growth of our business.”
The Carlsberg Group will present the results at a conference call today at 9.00 am CET (8.00 am GMT). Dial-in information and slide deck are available beforehand via the quick links on this page.
