Britvic plc ("Britvic")

Q3 Trading Statement to 7 July 2019

"Confident of achieving market expectations for the full year"

Britvic today reports third quarter revenue of £360.1m, a decrease of 1.5% (constant currency and excluding SDIL/SSDT*) on last year. Revenue in GB grew despite the market** declining in value and volume. Brazil and International continued to deliver solid revenue growth, while performance in France and Ireland remained more challenging with a further softening since the half-year.


Simon Litherland, Chief Executive, commented:

"Overall we have delivered a solid performance against a more challenging backdrop in quarter three. We remain confident of achieving market expectations for the full year, underpinned by the strength of our brand portfolio, exciting commercial plans and a tight focus on cost control."
