Ivan Menezes, Chief Executive, commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013

 

"These results reflect Diageo's strengths. We have delivered 5% net sales growth reflecting the strength of our US spirits business and continued double digit growth in the emerging markets, despite weakness in some markets. Price increases in each region, positive mix in North America and Latin America and the rigour we have in managing our cost of production and controlling our overheads drove significant expansion in operating margin. 

 

The effectiveness of our marketing campaigns remains a competitive advantage for us and this year we have seen these campaigns extend the leadership of our brands in many markets during the year. This has been a key driver of our performance in scotch, our biggest and most profitable category, especially for Johnnie Walker which is now a 20 million case brand. Innovation is driving growth in every region, with our biggest launches in US spirits where we continue to lead the innovation agenda in the industry. Elsewhere, the investments we have made to enhance our routes to market in Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe have driven strong growth.

 

The breadth of our good performance is reflected in the strength of the cash flow, in our double digit eps growth and a recommended 9% increase in the final dividend. This year we have again made a strong business stronger and we remain on track to deliver our medium term guidance."

Exchange rate movement for net sales and operating profit before exceptional items are the translation of prior year reported results at current year exchange rates.

 

Using current exchange rates (£1 = $1.54 : £1 = €1.16) exchange rate movements for the year ending 30 June 2014 are expected to adversely impact operating profit by £55 million and increase net finance charges by £5 million. This guidance excludes the impact of IAS 21 and 39.

 

Update on strategic transactions

 

On 4 July 2013 Diageo announced the completion of the United Spirits Limited (USL) share purchase agreement with United Breweries (Holdings) Limited and the acquisition of a further 14.98% stake in USL for a total consideration of INR 31 billion (£344 million). This follows Diageo's subscription for the preferential allotment of 10% of the post issue share capital of USL and the acquisition of 58,668 additional shares through the mandatory tender offer. Diageo is now the major shareholder in USL with a shareholding of 25.02%. The total purchase consideration was INR 52 billion (£594 million).

 

On 11 December 2012 Diageo announced that discussions between Diageo and JB y Compania S.A. de C.V. and Lanceros S.A. de C.V. in respect of the future of the Jose Cuervo brand had ended. The contract for the distribution of Jose Cuervo in North America and many other markets between Diageo and Jose Cuervo expired on 30 June 2013. In the year ended 30 June 2013 Diageo reported net sales of £308 million and operating profit of £76 million from Jose Cuervo.

BUSINESS REVIEW

For the year ended 30 June 2013

 

North America

 

Larry Schwartz, President, Diageo North America, commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013, said:

 

"Diageo's organic performance in North America, with volume up 1% and net sales up 5%, has been driven by our strength in US spirits which continues to benefit from positive demographics and the consumers' wish to premiumise. Great innovation, impactful marketing campaigns, and our superior route to market have resulted in 3% volume growth and 8% net sales growth in US spirits. We have taken price increases across our brands, especially on our premium and super premium brands. The strong performance of Crown Royal, Johnnie Walker, Buchanan's, and Bulleit Bourbon, and double digit growth of our reserve brands, were the key contributors to mix. We have sustained our successful innovation pipeline and again we have 5 of the top 10 new launches in the United States, with Crown Royal Maple the number one US innovation this year. We have increased marketing spend 11% on our US spirits brands and we now have on air campaigns for all our core brands. DGUSA, in contrast, had a difficult year with increased competition from new entrants in flavoured beer. Wine has had a good year, benefiting from innovation and price increases. Canada has delivered good growth through price increases, innovation, and marketing investment in Tanqueray, Crown Royal, and Baileys. Strong price/mix across North America enhanced our gross margin and with our continued focus on overheads we were able to increase marketing investment while still delivering 120bpts of operating margin improvement."

*     Diageo reported net sales of £267 million (2012 - £266 million) from Jose Cuervo in North America. Acquisitions and disposals are in respect of the year on year movement for Jose Cuervo, as a result of the termination of the distribution agreement, and for disposals made in the years ended 30 June 2013 and 30 June 2012. The variance is primarily driven by the sales decline of Nuvo.

·       US spirits net sales grew 8% driven by a strong performance in North American whiskey, scotch, and vodka. Crown Royal and Bulleit Bourbon contributed more than 45% of the net sales growth following successful innovations such as Crown Royal Maple Finished and Bulleit 10 year old which were launched this year. Smirnoff delivered a strong performance and grew net sales 6% with the expansion of the confectionery line and the launch of Smirnoff Kissed Caramel, Iced Cake and Root Beer Float. Johnnie Walker increased net sales 14% driven by the strong performance of both Johnnie Walker Black Label and Blue Label. 5ppts of positive price/mix arose from price increases put through across categories and positive mix from premiumisation as net sales of the reserve brands grew 9%. Net sales growth in the fourth quarter benefited from the shipment of a new Cîroc flavour which was launched in July.
·       Canada’s net sales growth of 8% was driven by price increases across categories, successful innovation launches in whiskey, rum, and liqueurs, and the impact of increased marketing investment behind Johnnie Walker, Crown Royal and Baileys as well as bulk whiskey sales.
·       Net sales in beer declined 1%. Guinness lost share in the United States as we lapped the introduction of Guinness Black Lager and Red Stripe was affected by supply disruptions.
·       Ready to drink net sales declined 10% as Smirnoff Ice faced increased competition from established beer brands.
·       Marketing investment was up 10% driven by an increased investment behind strategic brands. Increased spend of 24% on Johnnie Walker was focused on the ‘My Label is Black’ campaign which was designed to celebrate the Hispanic community. Successful campaigns included the ‘Reign On’ campaign for Crown Royal, the continuation of the ‘Master of the Mix’ programme, featuring a DJ competition on cable TV, sponsored by Smirnoff, and the ‘Luck Be a Lady’ campaign for Cîroc featuring Sean Combs. Increased investment behind Bulleit Bourbon was focused on raising consumer awareness of the brand.
·       Price increases implemented across the portfolio and positive mix from the double digit net sales growth of our super and ultra premium brands drove 120bpts of organic operating margin improvement.

 

Western Europe

 

John Kennedy, President, Diageo Western Europe, commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013, said:

 

"Western Europe continued to be a challenging trading environment. Our Southern European markets and Ireland faced another very tough year and net sales declined 11%. Trading in Great Britain was resilient as double digit growth in reserve brands coupled with growth from innovation and improved performance from Smirnoff offset a 9% decline in ready to drink and a 3% decline in Guinness. Benelux, and Germany and Austria grew net sales double digit mainly driven by the strong performance of our scotch and rum brands. Marketing investment, while lower overall, wasfocused on the biggest opportunities, primarily on our strategic brands, Captain Morgan and Tanqueray as well as on Guinness which made share gains in the last quarter in Great Britain and Ireland. We increased marketing investment on Cîroc, Ketel One vodka, Zacapa, and Johnnie Walker and consequently reserve brands continued to be an area of significant growth, up double digits. Overall we are addressing the challenges we see in Southern Europe and Ireland and we are capturing growth in the stronger markets of Western Europe."

·       In the stronger economies of Germany, Austria, and Benelux double digit net sales growth was delivered. Germany and Austria maintained strong momentum on the back of increased marketing investment and expansion of the sales force in the off trade. Captain Morgan and Smirnoff both grew volume and share while net sales of Mey İçki’s brands in Germany, the largest export market for raki, grew following increased marketing.
·       In Great Britain, innovation and growth of reserve brands offset the impact of a weaker beer market. innovations included Pimm’s Blackberry & Elderflower and a further range extension of pre-mix cans. Growth in reserve was driven by the introduction of Cîroc. Guinness net sales declined 3%, however in the last quarter Guinness gained share as a result of increased marketing investment.
·       In Ireland, the beer market contracted across all channels due to the weak economy, and Guinness declined 5%. However, as a result of increased investment, the brand has gained share in the last quarter.
·       Net sales in France declined 8% in a weak trading environment and JεB lost share as promotional activity by competitors increased.
·       Iberia, Greece and Italy now represent 3% of Diageo’s net sales after a number of years of tough trading. In these Southern European markets, volume declined 13% and net sales declined 15% as deeper austerity measures affected overall consumption and sales mix. JεB and Baileys were impacted the most, declining 30% and 18%, respectively.
·       Captain Morgan was the best performing brand in Western Europe with 15% net sales growth primarily in Great Britain and Germany driven by higher marketing investment. Reserve continues to show significant growth across Western Europe, with strong growth from the Malts portfolio, while Tanqueray performed well in Great Britain, Benelux, and Germany and gained share in the key gin market of Spain.
·       In Western Europe, innovation plays an increasingly important role. Innovation is focused on both sustaining prior year launches, such as Captain Morgan in Germany, and The Singleton in Northern Europe, and on ensuring successful new launches in this year, such as Pimm’s Limited Editions, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, and Johnnie Walker Platinum Label.
·       Net sales in Diageo Wines Europe declined 10% in the financial year, mainly due to the lapping of very strong En Primeur sales in the previous year, and the decision to exit from some low value wines.

 

 

 

 

Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey

 

Nick Blazquez, President, Diageo Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013, said:

 

"This year we are reporting Africa, Eastern Europe, and Turkey as a newly formed region, which is now Diageo's second largest and is the biggest contributor to net sales growth. Net sales grew 10% from strong performance of spirits and a robust performance of beer in Africa, where we grew net sales despite volume declines. Our important spirits markets grew strongly driven by Johnnie Walker in scotch and Smirnoff in vodka. Growing scotch is our priority in spirits and I am pleased to see our strong share gains across the majority of our markets as we scaled up our marketing campaigns. In Eastern Europe and Turkey our focus is primarily on spirits, and Africa remains the key opportunity for growing our outstanding beer business, and expanding spirits. In Africa, while the economic and political situations vary and have impacted beer volume in certain markets, we are investing in beer capacity and building routes to market to fuel long term growth. We have continued to invest in supply and production capacity in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Cameroon, and the expansion of the Meta Abo brewery in Ethiopia. We are also committed to our community and environmental responsibilities, driving down energy consumption, using local raw materials for beer production, and utilising returnable packaging. Our marketing investment grew 16% to support growth of well established brands and bring new brands and variants to emerging middle class consumers. We have introduced innovation at scale delivering new packaging and fantastic products such as Ruut Extra in Ghana, which is Diageo's first beer brewed using cassava, Jebel grain spirit in Kenya, and Shark Tooth rum in Russia. I am pleased with the progress we continue to make in building our brands and our organisation, and with these good results."

*       Organic equals reported movement for volume except for: Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey 7%, Africa 5%, Africa Regional Markets 5%, Turkey 9%, spirits 11%, beer 1%, reflecting the acquisition of Meta Abo and Mey İçki.

**     Spirits brands excluding ready to drink.        

 

·    Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey delivered 10% net sales growth, with spirits net sales up 13% and beer net sales up 5% and therefore spirits have driven 59% of the region's net sales growth. Volume in the region was up 4% despite a challenging Africa beer market. Ready to drink net sales grew 32%, driven by Africa.

·    Nigeria proved to be a challenging market as consumer confidence was negatively impacted by low government spending and the beer market continued to decline. Volume decreased 1%, however, net sales grew 5% as a result of 52% net sales growth in spirits and price/mix in beer. Beer volume decreased 4%, largely due to Harp and Guinness, however Diageo's beer business delivered net sales growth of 1% as the beer route to market was reinforced through investment in Guinness' distribution network, and an increased sales force. Malta Guinness delivered 15% net sales growth following the introduction of Malta Guinness Low Sugar last year, price increases, and marketing investment. In spirits, Johnnie Walker net sales grew 63% and Baileys net sales were up 30%, as a result of increased distribution and marketing investment. Johnnie Walker spend was focused behind outdoor advertising, the 'Keep Walking' campaign, and event sponsorship, while Baileys increased visibility and promotions, coupled with a new bottle launch. Snapp, an apple flavoured ready to drink, targeting the female audience, performed well, benefitting from marketing support, strong distribution and launch events.

·    East Africa delivered 10% net sales growth from 3% volume growth. Beer net sales increased by 9%, driven by beer brands in Kenya. Guinness delivered 19% net sales driven by the 'Made of More' advertising campaign, and the Guinness Football Challenge promotion and grew margin as a result of price increases. Tusker net sales were up 13% largely because of favourable price/mix, and volume also grew due to strong marketing support through soccer sponsorships and the 'It's Our Time' campaign. Senator beer net sales grew 9% driven by growth of Senator Keg in Kenya, and the introduction of Senator in Tanzania. There was some weakness in local spirits, however, international spirits performed particularly well with Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff delivering 22% and 24% incremental net sales respectively. Johnnie Walker's performance was delivered through a mix of growth drivers, including building bar staff capability in premium spirits, educational whisky events for consumers, and on trade activations to promote smaller-sized bottles. Key drivers of Smirnoff growth were price increase and geographic mix. Ready to drink net sales were up 48% as Smirnoff Ice and Snapp continued to grow.

·    In Africa Regional Markets spirits growth was driven by Johnnie Walker which delivered double digit increases in net sales across all key markets. Beer net sales were driven by price increases in Ghana, Cameroon, and Seychelles. In Ghana, beer benefited from the government's tax concessions on products containing a majority of local raw materials. This helped to offset supply constraints, such as water shortages and increased energy costs. In Cameroon, growing competition from lagers and beer price increases impacted volume. Strong performance of Meta in Ethiopia contributed to total beer net sales growth. Marketing investment was focused behind Johnnie Walker in spirits as well as Ruut Extra in Ghana, Malta Guinness in Cameroon, and Meta beer.

·    South Africa delivered a strong performance in spirits driving net sales growth of 17%. Scotch was the largest contributor following national roll out of VAT 69 and JεB promotion campaigns. The expansion of the Johnnie Walker Red Label 'Step Up' campaign and the launch of the 'Keep Walking' campaign targeted at emerging middle class consumers drove premiumisation. As a result, Johnnie Walker net sales grew 31% and share increased. In vodka, Smirnoff maintained last year's performance trajectory and grew net sales 19%. As pricing and value are key to growth of spirits against local beer and brandy, 500ml PET packaging was launched, following the successful introduction of the 200ml PET pack last year. Smirnoff introduced new flavours, Smirnoff Iced Cake and Smirnoff Kissed Caramel.

·    Russia and Eastern Europe delivered 16% net sales growth. Scotch contributed over half of this growth. Johnnie Walker maintained its leadership, posting its biggest share gains in Poland, Bulgaria, and Ukraine. In the standard segment, Bell's and Black&White drove volume growth recruiting emerging middle class consumers into the whisky category. Increased marketing investment was focused behind the strategic brands and innovation, which is one of the key growth drivers in the market. Captain Morgan performed strongly with net sales growth of over 30%, as did Bushmills.

·    Turkey net sales were up 8% while volume declined 4% driven by raki category, which was impacted by excise duty increases. Yeni Raki, which remains the most recognised raki brand in Turkey, grew net sales 7% as a result of price increases and better mix. Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff grew net sales double digit and gained share. Johnnie Walker Double Black, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Smirnoff Gold, and Cîroc were introduced to widen the range of international brands. Captain Morgan Spiced Gold was introduced to meet the opportunity in cocktail consumption occasions. Marketing investment grew 12% and supported new brand introductions, as well as Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff.

·    Marketing investment in the region was up 16%, mainly driven by significant increases on spirits brands, which were up 25% in Africa, 25% in Russia and Eastern Europe, and 12% in Turkey. In Africa marketing investment in beer grew 8%.

 

Latin America and Caribbean

 

Randy Millian, President, Diageo Latin America and Caribbean, commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013, said:

 

"Our Latin America and Caribbean business has delivered another strong set of results. Net sales grew 15%, driven by volume, price and mix improvement. Strong double digit growth in Venezuela, Mexico, and West LAC offset a slowdown in Brazil, mostly due to destocking in the wholesale channel driven by a stricter enforcement of tax collections. Scotch remains the growth engine of the region contributing 81% of overall net sales growth. We have expanded our reach to emerging middle class consumers by investing strongly in Johnnie Walker Red Label, Black&White and White Horse. As we drive our premiumisation strategy, we have focused our marketing on super and ultra premium brands. Our reserve brands grew net sales double digit, with particularly strong performance of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Buchanan's Special Reserve, and Cîroc. At the same time we have continued to invest in our route to market, particularly in Brazil and Mexico, and increased our focus on innovation which this year accounted for more than a tenth of the net sales in the region. Strong price/mix enabled us to increase marketing investment and still grow operating profit 26% with 300bpts of margin expansion. Overall, despite some headwinds in Brazil and volatility in Venezuela, these are long term, high-growth markets with favourable population demographics and we are well positioned to capture these opportunities and consolidate our leadership position in the region."

·    Performance in Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil (PUB) has been impacted by a slowdown in beverage alcohol in Brazil and declines in duty free in Paraguay and Uruguay. In Brazil, the government has made changes which have long term social benefits, including the elimination of some tax incentives and increased enforcement of inter-state taxes which led to destocking in the wholesale channel, stricter enforcement of drink driving laws, and the closure of outlets due to the introduction of nightclub safety guidelines which impacted the on trade. In addition, Diageo has begun to implement a dedicated distributor model which will reduce stock levels held by the distributors. The realignment of distributors will continue into the next financial year which will also negatively impact sales. The distributor realignment led to improved distribution with an increase in the size of the sales teams now focused on Diageo's brands. As a result, Diageo's scotch brands outperformed the category gaining 3.5ppts of share. In standard scotch, White Horse performed strongly and in the premium segment, Old Parr grew over 20%. In vodka, Diageo lost share to local competitors, however Smirnoff remains the category leader in Brazil.

·    Performance in the Andean market was driven primarily by Venezuela where net sales increased 54% despite the political and economic instability which impacted the availability of local brands, due to production delays, and the restricted availability of imported products. Scotch delivered 75% of Venezuela's growth mainly in the premium segment while double digit net sales growth in rum, vodka, and gin also contributed. Three brands, Old Parr, Buchanan's and Cacique delivered over two thirds of the net sales increase, growing 55%, 60%, and 49%, respectively. Gordon's Flavours, the first locally-produced gin flavour, performed well. The price of imported brands increased by 80% to reflect the devaluation and high inflation. Local products increased 20%. Despite these price increases, Diageo maintained its leading position in Venezuela, with a 57% share in scotch, 50% in rum and 26% in imported vodka.

·    Diageo again delivered a strong performance in Mexico with volume up 14% and net sales up 18%. Diageo's strategy in Mexico is to grow the scotch category where Diageo is the clear leader, drive premiumisation, and widen the reach to middle class consumers by expanding the portfolio through innovation and through increasing use of on trade platforms and customer partnerships. Diageo's scotch brands grew 18% as Johnnie Walker Red Label grew share in standard scotch and Johnnie Walker Black Label gained share in premium scotch following the successful 'Keep Walking Mexico' campaign. Innovations were a key contributor to the strong performance. Buchanan's Master was focused on enhancing leadership in premium scotch. Captain Morgan expanded the reach to middle class consumers and Zacapa built Diageo's position in rum. Implementation of an in-store execution programme has increased share of shelf and display, and the launch of a successful strategic partnership programme with key wholesalers improved sales capabilities and contributed to the strong growth.

·    West LAC is Diageo's biggest market in the region and growth was driven by the strong performance of scotch with a 17% net sales increase. Premium scotch, particularly Old Parr and Johnnie Walker Black Label, led the trend with 35% and 25% increases in net sales, respectively. The new 'Morning Keep Walking' campaign was launched with strong television communications throughout the region. Additionally, the House of Walker Mentor programme was introduced and together with scotch festival activations drove the Johnnie Walker brand performance. In Argentina, government restriction on imports resulted in low single digit top line growth during the year.


 

 

Asia Pacific

 

Gilbert Ghostine, President, Diageo Asia Pacific, commenting on the year ended 30 June 2013, said:

 

"Asia Pacific grew net sales 3% having faced a difficult trading environment in Korea and the duty free channel. In Korea, the traditional on trade channel has declined. We have delivered a strong performance from Smirnoff and Guinness however these newer categories are not yet large enough to offset a 23% decline in Windsor and therefore net sales in Korea were down 17%. Our travel retail business slowed due to softness in spend by Chinese travellers and destocking which will improve performance in the new fiscal year. In the emerging markets of Asia, which now account for over 60% of net sales in the region, net sales were up 8%. In South East Asia we continued to perform strongly with Johnnie Walker up 17% and double digit growth of Guinness. In China, despite weakness in the beverage alcohol sector in the second half, we delivered 7% net sales growth with a very strong performance from our super and ultra premium scotch brands which grew net sales 59% and gained 5ppts of share. In Taiwan, Japan, Australia and the Middle East we delivered good growth mainly driven by the performance of our scotch brands. Scotch is the biggest category in the region and the performance of our scotch brands across the region accounted for more than 50% of our top line growth. We have invested strongly behind our reserve brands which grew 17% and in December 2012 a new Johnnie Walker house opened in Beijing, which at four times larger than the Shanghai house is the world's largest embassy for luxury scotch. We also expanded our regional footprint in the year with further investment in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Nepal. The weakness in Korea and Asia duty free did have a negative impact on operating margin, however this was more than offset by the strong improvement in margin we achieved in the emerging markets as we leveraged both marketing and overheads, and in total operating margin for the region improved by 60bpts."

·    South East Asia continued to deliver strong double digit net sales growth with 5% volume growth and 9ppts of positive price/mix. Johnnie Walker delivered a strong performance across all markets contributing more than 60% of the top line growth. Performance was particularly strong in Thailand from both Johnnie Walker Red Label and Johnnie Walker Black Label and grew net sales 17%, gaining a further 1ppt of share. Guinness grew volume 8% and net sales 13%. Growth was particularly strong in Indonesia with 19% net sales growth on the back of successful marketing activities such as 'Guinness Live Music', where consumers were offered the opportunity to vote for the best local band to represent Indonesia in the global Guinness Arthur's Day celebration in Dublin.

·    Greater China delivered a solid performance, with volume up 1% and net sales up 8% despite a difficult trading environment, and continued share gains across all markets. Diageo's China hub, which includes China, Hong Kong and Macau, grew net sales 7% with 8ppts of positive price/mix largely due to a successful premiumisation strategy. Despite a slowdown in China in the second half, as a result of the anti-extravagance campaign launched by the government in China, net sales in the super and ultra premium segments grew 44% driven by Johnnie Walker and Windsor and share increased by 5ppts in China. Baileys net sales grew 30% and the 'Baileys Sisterhood' campaign was launched in Shanghai, leveraging an existing local 'Sisterhood Day' festival to create an off peak gifting occasion. In Taiwan net sales grew 10% with 5ppts of positive price/mix. The strong momentum of The Singleton continued and with 37% net sales increase was the fastest growing single malt brand in the category, gaining 2ppts of share. In the super premium segment Johnnie Walker Premier grew net sales 17% while Johnnie Walker XR 21 drove the 41% net sales growth in ultra premium.

·    India's net sales declined 2% and volume 5% as stock in trade was reduced in the first quarter. Diageo's scotch brands grew net sales 3% helped by an increased investment behind VAT 69 and Black&White which delivered strong net sales and volume growth and led to a 4ppts increase in the total Diageo scotch share. In a declining vodka category, Smirnoff gained 0.5ppts of share and grew net sales 1% with a volume decline of 6%. The high stock in trade in the first quarter was the main driver for the 5% decline of Johnnie Walker's net sales. Despite these uncertainties depletions growth for Johnnie Walker Black Label and Johnnie Walker Red Label was robust in the second half of the year.

·    Global Travel Asia & Middle East net sales declined 2%, mainly driven by the Asia duty free business where net sales declined 15% with destocking among key customers. Political tension between North and South Korea negatively impacted passenger trends in South Korea, the largest Johnnie Walker Blue Label market in travel retail and contributed to net sales declining 14% for the variant. A strong performance from Cîroc and Ketel One vodka was unable to offset a decline in Smirnoff which resulted in a decline of the vodka category of 1%. Austerity measures implemented by the Chinese government led to a 33% net sales decline of Shui Jing Fang in duty free. Middle East grew net sales 10%. The scotch category delivered 15% net sales growth as Johnnie Walker Black Label and the expanded distribution of Johnnie Walker Double Black helped to deliver a combined net sales growth of 18% in the important premium segment. Successful launches of Johnnie Walker XR 21, John Walker & Sons Odyssey and the Johnnie Walker Explorers' Club Collection contributed to strengthen Diageo position in the ultra premium segment which grew net sales 28%.

·    Australia grew net sales 3% despite a volume decline of 4% mainly due to price increases across the core brands and a focus on premiumisation. The ultra premium segment grew 22% overall with Cîroc and Ketel One vodka growing net sales 91% and 22%, respectively. Net sales growth of 8% was delivered in scotch, mainly driven by Dimple and Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Despite a volume decrease of 12% Smirnoff grew net sales 7% on the back of price increases. Increased marketing investment behind Gordon's and Tanqueray delivered solid growth in the gin category contributing 22% to the overall growth. Innovation launches of Bundaberg Select VAT and Master Distillers' Collection continued to play a key role in premiumising the Bundaberg brand and contributing to 1% net sales growth. Within the rum category Captain Morgan delivered excellent results growing net sales 85% by capitalising on the increasing popularity of spiced rums. Ready to drink volume and net sales decreased 7% and 1% respectively due to price increases taken during the year. The higher duty compared to beer and cider continued to hinder the category and the launch of new variants with lower ABV helped to soften the decline. Diageo Australia remains the category leader in scotch gaining a further 1.9ppts share during the year. 

·    North Asia performance was impacted by the contraction of the traditional on trade channel in Korea resulting in an overall 11% net sales decline. While performance improved in the second half, net sales in Korea decreased 17% with Windsor losing 3ppts of share due to price increases that were not immediately followed in the market. JεB, Guinness and Smirnoff grew net sales 30%. Japan grew net sales 5% boosted by Johnnie Walker, which grew 34% helped by the introduction of new variants such as Johnnie Walker Platinum Label, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, and Smirnoff Ice, which grew net sales 30% and led the strong performance of the growing category of ready to drink.

·    Marketing investment in the region decreased 1% mostly driven by a reduction in spend in Korea. Marketing on reserve brands increased 35% to drive premiumisation and it now accounts for nearly 30% of the marketing investment in the region. In China marketing activities such as Johnnie Walker's 'Blue Label 360 Tiger' aimed at highlighting brand rarity and the John Walker & Sons Odyssey launch on the Voyager yacht contributed to the net sales increase in the ultra premium segment. In the faster growing markets such as Southeast Asia, investment behind Johnnie Walker grew 18% led by successful experiential marketing campaigns such as Blacklist and REDrevolution in Thailand, which saw Johnnie Walker Red Label sponsor the biggest music event in the country.


 

Cost of sales

Cost of sales excluding exceptional items was £4,443 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 compared with £4,228 million in the year ended 30 June 2012. The 1% volume increase together with some favourable mix impact added £37 million to cost of sales. Acquisitions and disposals added £96 million, with Ypióca and Shuijingfang being the main contributors, and positive exchange movements reduced cost of sales by £23 million. As expected cost increases on materials, utilities and logistics amounted to around 4% of cost of sales. This was partially mitigated by cost reductions through packaging sourcing initiatives, asset rationalisation, procurement benefits and operational efficiencies arising from restructuring programmes implemented in recent years.

 

Corporate revenue and costs

 

Net sales were £76 million in the year ended 30 June 2013, up £6 million compared to last year. Net operating charges were £149 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 having been £165 million in the year ended 30 June 2012. The reduction comprised, a £10 million decrease in corporate costs, primarily due to a reduction in acquisition costs and a £6 million favourable exchange rate movements.

**     Spirits brands excluding ready to drink.

 

Spirits represent 68% of Diageo's net sales, and generated 97% of the total net sales growth in the year.

 

Whisk(e)y represents 36% of Diageo's total net sales and was up 10%, contributing 68% of total net sales growth. Emerging markets contributed over half of total whiskey net sales. Scotch led whiskey growth, with net sales up 9% and volume up 4% driven by premium and super premium brands in faster growing markets.

·    Johnnie Walker is now a 20 million 9 litre case brand, growing over 1 million cases this year. The emerging markets accounted for 80% of the total net sales growth. In developed markets, Johnnie Walker grew net sales by 14% in the United States, while the economic challenges in Southern Europe continued to impact the brand's commercial performance in Western Europe. From a variant perspective, the brand's performance is driven by premium and super premium variants, namely Johnnie Walker Black Label, the roll out of Johnnie Walker Platinum Label and Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve. Innovation continues to be a key driver of growth. Johnnie Walker Double Black is now sold in over 100 markets. The launches of John Walker & Sons Odyssey and the Johnnie Walker Explorers' Club Collection have received a strong positive response from customers and consumers. Johnnie Walker Red Label had strong momentum with 8% net sales growth, as Africa continued to deliver strong performance for the brand on the back of investment and expanded distribution.

·    Crown Royal net sales grew 17% driven by strong performance in its primary market, North America. Crown Royal Deluxe, Crown Royal Black, and Crown Royal Maple Finished, which was launched in the first half, all grew strongly. Increased marketing investment of 8% was directed to the new 'Reign On' consumer recruitment campaign, with significant media support across North America. In Canada, Crown Royal is growing share as it outpaces the Canadian whiskey category.

·    JεB net sales declined 15% due to JεB's exposure to Southern Europe and the excise duty increases in France. JεB delivered 13% net sales growth in South Africa, the brand's third biggest market, with a strong on trade promotional programme.

·    Buchanan's again delivered very strong growth, with volume up 11% and net sales up 25% led by the Latin American markets. In North America it also delivered a strong performance, with volume up 13% targeting Latin American consumers. In Latin America and Caribbean Buchanan's delivered 26% net sales growth; Venezuela and Mexico drove this performance through the new 'Share Yourself' campaign. Another growth driver was Buchanan´s Master, which became the second largest scotch in Venezuela and Mexico. Buchanan´s Special Reserve led the super premium segment in these key markets.

·    Windsor declined double digit both by volume and net sales due to the downturn in the traditional on trade channel in Korea. This was driven by a change in business entertainment activities, growing consumer concerns over health and wellbeing, and stronger local regulation of the whisky industry. Windsor has recovered share from the first half decline and remains the leading scotch whisky in Korea.

·    Bushmills grew volume 11% and net sales 12%. The brand grew in all regions with a particularly strong performance in Russia and Eastern Europe, growing 36%. The growth was driven by global and local 'Bushmills Live' marketing events and expanded distribution. Western Europe continues to deliver single digit growth in a tough economic environment.

·    Malts performed strongly, delivering 17% of net sales growth. Talisker and The Singleton grew net sales 30% and 36%, respectively with the launch of 'Talisker Storm' and marketing investment in the impactful 'Singleton Sensorium' campaign.

 

Vodka delivered net sales growth of 5% and constitutes 12% of total Diageo net sales. North America, Diageo's largest vodka market, remained flat by volume with net sales up 5%. Category performance was again driven by super and ultra premium variants, with Cîroc and Ketel One vodka leading the growth.

·    Smirnoff net sales grew 4% building on last year's strength. In North America, Smirnoff net sales were up 5%, driven by the United States, the largest Smirnoff market, which delivered 6% net sales growth. Strong innovation launches including Smirnoff Confectionery and Smirnoff Sorbet Light flavours added to the Smirnoff brand performance, which was sustained by marketing investment. In Western Europe, performance was mixed by market. In Great Britain, Smirnoff benefited from Smirnoff's 'World's Best Drinks' programme. However, this was offset by destocking. Ireland remains tough due to the economic environment, and in Germany, Smirnoff gained share. In emerging markets, Smirnoff led the establishment of the vodka category with strong double digit net sales growth in South Africa, Kenya and Ghana. In Latin America and Caribbean, the brand was affected in Brazil by the economic slowdown, however, this was offset by strong performance in other Latin American countries. In Asia Pacific, the brand also performed well in new vodka markets, particularly in Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan.

·    Ketel One vodka had another good year, growing both net sales and volume on the back of continued strong performance in North America driven by pricing. The brand delivered double digit growth outside the United States as distribution was expanded to over 70 markets across the world.  

·    Cîroc sells over 2 million 9 litre cases. In the United States growth was driven by Cîroc's base variant and the continued success of Cîroc Peach, the largest revenue generating innovation in the United States. Cîroc marketing investment increased double digit. Outside of the Unites States, Cîroc grew strongly especially in Western Europe, Brazil, and in Global Travel Retail.

 

Rum grew 5%, with strong performances from Captain Morgan and Zacapa, and constitutes 6% of total Diageo net sales.

·    Captain Morgan grew net sales 7% with sales volume reaching 10 million cases this year. The 'To Life, Love and Loot' campaign in the United States continued with new creative executions, featuring the legendary Captain Henry Morgan. The brand also grew strongly in its newer markets of Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and Mexico, where the proven 'Keys to Adventure' experiential events and 'Captain Morgan Starts the Party' campaign, have continued to be key growth drivers.

·    Zacapa delivered net sales growth in North America and Western Europe. In emerging markets, the brand grew net sales double digit, driving the super premium and the ultra premium segments of the rum category. Key growth drivers for the brand were sampling, PR and consumer experiences along with bartender programmes such as Diageo Reserve World Class.

 

Liqueurs, which represent 5% of Diageo net sales, grew 2% driven by growth in Baileys.

·    Baileys delivered 2% net sales growth. This was driven by a global re-launch, supported by the new 'Cream with spirit' campaign, and the new pack, and retail design. In the United States, which accounts for more than a quarter of the brand's net sales, Baileys performed strongly with 9% net sales growth driven by the new advertising campaign and the launch of Baileys Hazelnut. In Western Europe Baileys declined 6%, driven by Great Britain, and Southern Europe; Germany and Austria, and Ireland performed well and grew net sales 10% and 9%, respectively. Baileys continues its growth trajectory in emerging markets, with double digit net sales growth in Russia, Africa and China.

 

Tequila, Don Julio, grew net sales 13% and volume 9%. In its primary market, North America, the brand maintained favourable price/mix and grew share. The performance was driven by increased investment in mentorship programmes, experiential sampling in the on trade, public relations, and above the line advertising. Outside North America, Don Julio continued to deliver strong double digit net sales growth, especially in Asia Pacific, and Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey. In these markets, the brand was driven by experiential consumer events. In Canada, Western Europe, and Latin America, the key growth drivers were improved visibility, mentorship and sampling programmes in the on trade, as well as strong execution of Don Julio in Diageo Reserve World Class.

 

Gin grew net sales 8% and constitutes 3% of Diageo total net sales.

·    Tanqueray net sales increased 12%, with strong growth across all regions, driven by the performance in the United States and continued growth in Western Europe. In the Unites States, Tanqueray returned to growth as the advertising campaign 'Tonight We Tanqueray' was amplified. Increased marketing investment, combined with commercial focus and execution drove strong brand awareness and sales. An educational experience for bartenders was activated in 30 markets this financial year. Outside the United States 'Tonight We Tanqueray' campaign was rolled out supported by increased investment.

·    Gordon's grew net sales 5% globally driven by growth in the emerging markets of Eastern Europe, Turkey, Latin America and Caribbean, and in South East Asia.

 

Beer represents 21% of Diageo net sales and delivered 2% net sales growth driven by emerging markets, which grew net sales 6%. Volume declined 2%, principally in Western Europe.

·    Guinness net sales increased 1% while volume declined 2%. Africa, the largest Guinness market by volume, delivered net sales growth of 2%, despite tough economic conditions in a number of African countries. In Western Europe, net sales were down 3% driven by the beer market decline and economic uncertainty. In Asia Pacific, Guinness delivered double digit growth, primarily in Indonesia, due to a combination of marketing, pricing, and strong commercial activations. Marketing investment was focused behind the 'Made of More' campaign in Western Europe and Africa, consumer participation programmes related to the Arthur's Day celebration in Dublin, rugby and football communication platforms, and the official broadcast partnership with the English Premier League in Africa.

 

Wine net sales represent 4% of Diageo's net sales and were flat following a decline of 7% of net sales in Western Europe and growth of 4% in North America.

 

Ready to drink represents 6% of Diageo net sales, and were flat. 10% net sales decline in North America was offset by strong net sales growth in Africa, which was driven by innovations: Smirnoff Black Ice in Cameroon, Smirnoff Double Black & Guarana in South Africa, and Snapp in Kenya and Nigeria.

Sales and net sales

On a reported basis, sales increased by £893 million from £14,594 million in the year ended 30 June 2012 to £15,487 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 and net sales increased by £671 million from £10,762 million in the year ended 30 June 2012 to £11,433 million in the year ended 30 June 2013. Exchange rate movements decreased reported sales by £81 million and reported net sales by £60 million. Acquisitions increased reported sales by £317 million and reported net sales by £233 million and disposals decreased both reported sales and net sales by £19 million.

 

Operating costs before exceptional items

On a reported basis, operating costs before exceptional items increased by £339 million from £7,564 million in the year ended 30 June 2012 to £7,903 million in the year ended 30 June 2013due to an increase in cost of sales of £215 million from £4,228 million to £4,443 million, an increase in marketing spend of £96 million from £1,691 million to £1,787 million, and an increase in other operating expenses before exceptional costs of £28 million, from £1,645 million to £1,673 million. Exchange rate movements benefited total operating costs before exceptional items by £56 million.

 

Exceptional operating items

Net exceptional operating charges of £99 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 comprised:

·      £25 million (2012 - £nil) for the Supply excellence restructuring programme,

·      a charge of £44 million (2012 - £27 million) for the restructuring of the group's Global Supply operations in Ireland, Scotland and in the United States,

·      a gain of £20 million in respect of changes to future pension increases for the Diageo Guinness Ireland Group Pension Scheme (2012 - £115 million in respect of the group's principal UK and Irish pension schemes), and

·      a brand impairment charge of £50 million (2012 - £59 million) in respect of the Cacique brand.

In the year ended 30 June 2012 exceptional operating items also included a charge of £69 million for the operating model review announced in 2011.

      In March 2013, Diageo announced that its Global Supply and procurement operation will be refocused to enhance alignment between supply operations and Diageo's markets. From 1 July 2013, responsibility for local operations was transferred to the markets and regional structures are being reduced. The Global Supply function will remain responsible for ensuring excellence across all supply operations. In addition, a number of initiatives have been launched to consolidate and streamline the supply operations to create greater operating efficiencies. Total exceptional operating charges in the three years ending 30 June 2015 in respect of the restructuring are estimated to be £100 million.

      In the year ended 30 June 2013 total restructuring cash expenditure was £61 million (2012 - £158 million). An exceptional charge of approximately £85 million is expected to be incurred in the year ending 30 June 2014 in respect of the Supply excellence review and the restructuring of the group's supply operations in Ireland, and cash expenditure is expected to be approximately £110 million.

 

Post employment plans

The deficit in respect of post employment plans before taxation decreased by £533 million from £1,085 million at 30 June 2012 to £552 million at 30 June 2013 primarily as a result of the one off cash contribution of £400 million into the Diageo UK Pension Scheme. In addition, an increase in the market value of plan assets was partially offset by a decrease in the discount rates used to calculate the liabilities of the Irish plans and an increase in the inflation assumptions in the United Kingdom. Cash contributions to the group's UK and Irish post employment plans in the year ended 30 June 2013 were £531 million (2012 - £133 million) and are expected to be approximately £230 million for the year ending 30 June 2014.

 

Operating profit

Reported operating profit for the year ended 30 June 2013 increased by £273 million to £3,431 million from £3,158 million in the prior year. Before exceptional operating items, operating profit for the year ended 30 June 2013 increased by £332 million to £3,530 million from £3,198 million in the prior year. Exchange rate movements decreased both operating profit and operating profit before exceptional items for the year ended 30 June 2013 by £4 million. Acquisitions increased reported operating profit by £98 million and disposals decreased reported operating profit by £3 million.

 

Exceptional non-operating items

In the year ended 30 June 2013 a loss of £83 million arose in respect of the Nuvo disposal. In the year ended 30 June 2012 the gain on sale of businesses of £147 million included a step up gain of £124 million on the revaluation of the group's equity holdings in Sichuan Chengdu Shuijingfang Group Co., Ltd. (SJF Holdco) (formerly Sichuan Chengdu Quanxing Group Company Ltd.) and Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd (Shuijingfang) to fair value as the associates became subsidiaries during the year. In addition, exceptional non-operating items included a gain of £23 million on the sale of the group's investment in Tanzania Breweries.

 

Net finance charges

Net finance charges amounted £424 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 (2012 - £397 million).

      Net interest charge increased by £17 million from £382 million in the prior year to £399 million in the year ended 30 June 2013. The effective interest rate was 4.9% (2012 - 4.7%) in the year ended 30 June 2013 and average net borrowings decreased by £23 million compared to the prior year. For the calculation of effective interest rate, the net interest charge excludes fair value adjustments to derivative financial instruments and borrowings and average monthly net borrowings include the impact of interest rate swaps that are no longer in a hedge relationship but exclude the market value adjustment for cross currency interest rate swaps.

      Net other finance charges for the year ended 30 June 2013£25 million (2012 - £15 million). There was an increase of £12 million in finance charges in respect of post employment plans from an income of £7 million in the year ended 30 June 2012 to a charge of £5 million in the year ended 30 June 2013. Other finance charges also included £16 million (2012 - £17 million) in respect of the unwinding of discounts on liabilities and a hyperinflation adjustment of £4 million (2012 - £3 million) in respect of the group's Venezuela operations.

 

Associates

The group's share of associates' profits after interest and tax was £199 million for the year ended 30 June 2013 compared to £213 million in the prior year. Diageo's 34% equity interest in Moët Hennessy contributed £230 million (2012 - £205 million) to share of associates' profits after interest and tax. The share of loss after tax of £31 million (2012 - £8 million profit) from other associates contains a deferred tax write off of £23 million (2012 - £nil).

 

Profit before taxation

Profit before taxation increased by £2 million from £3,121 million in the prior year to £3,123 million in the year ended 30 June 2013.

 

Taxation

The reported tax rate decreased from 33.3% in the year ended 30 June 2012 to 16.9% in the year ended 30 June 2013. During the year ended 30 June 2012 tax authority negotiations were concluded resulting in a favourable change to the taxation basis of certain overseas profit and intangible assets which reduced the ongoing tax rate but resulted in the loss of future tax amortisation deductions giving rise to an exceptional write off of the related deferred tax assets of £524 million. The tax rate before exceptional items for the year ended 30 June 2013 remained unchanged at 17.7% compared with the year ended 30 June 2012 and it is expected that it will remain at approximately 18%.

 

Discontinued operations

Discontinued operations in the year ended 30 June 2012 represented a charge after taxation of £11 million in respect of anticipated future payments to additional thalidomide claimants.

 

Exchange rate and other movements

Exchange rate movements are calculated by retranslating the prior year results as if they had been generated at the current year exchange rates. The difference is excluded from organic growth. The estimated effect of exchange rate and other movements on profit before exceptional items and taxation for the year ended 30 June 2013 is set out in the table below.

For the year ending 30 June 2014 foreign exchange movements are expected to adversely impact operating profit by £55 million and increase net finance charges by £5 million based on applying current exchange rates (£1 = $1.54 : £1 = €1.16). This guidance excludes the impact of IAS 21 and IAS 39.

 

Dividend

The directors recommend a final dividend of 29.30 pence per share, an increase of 9% from the year ended 30 June 2012. The full dividend will therefore be 47.40 pence per share, an increase of 9% from the year ended 30 June 2012. Subject to approval by shareholders, the final dividend will be paid on 3 October 2013 to shareholders on the register on 16 August 2013. Payment to US ADR holders will be made on 8 October 2013. A dividend reinvestment plan is available in respect of the final dividend and the plan notice date is 11 September 2013.

Free cash flow decreased by £187 million to £1,460 million in the year ended 30 June 2013. Cash generated from operations increased from £3,005 million to £3,031 million principally as a result of higher operating profit and increased dividends received from Moët Hennessy which was partially offset by a one off £400 million payment into the Diageo UK Pension Scheme. Higher interest payments were driven by the impact of the renegotiation of the terms of certain interest rate swaps in the prior year while higher tax payments are principally the result of increased profits. The increase in net capital expenditure represents the continued investments made to increase capacity and to improve efficiencies in operations in Africa, Ireland, Scotland and North America. See explanatory note 4 (Return on average total invested capital) for the definition of free cash flow.

 

Balance sheet

At 30 June 2013 total equity was £8,107 million compared with £6,811 million at 30 June 2012. The increase was mainly due to the profit for the year of £2,594 million, partly offset by the dividend paid out of shareholders' equity of £1,125 million. 

Net borrowings were £8,403 million at 30 June 2013, an increase of £833 million from £7,570 million at 30 June 2012. The principal components of this increase were £1,125 million (2012 - £1,036 million) equity dividends paid, £644 million (2012 - £1,420 million) paid for the acquisition of businesses, primarily in respect of the initial 10.04% investment in United Spirits Limited and the acquisition of 100% of Ypióca, the acquisition of an additional 40% equity interest in SJF Holdco of £200 million and an adverse exchange rate movement of £116 million (2012 - £152 million favourable). This was partially offset by free cash flow of £1,460 million (2012 - £1,647 million).

Diageo manages its capital structure to achieve capital efficiency, maximise flexibility and give the appropriate level of access to debt markets at attractive cost levels in order to enhance long term shareholder value. To achieve this, Diageo targets a range of ratios which are currently broadly consistent with an A band credit rating. Diageo would consider modifying these ratios in order to effect strategic initiatives within its stated goals, which could have an impact on its rating. If Diageo's ratings were to be negatively impacted by the financing of an acquisition, it would seek over time to return to such ratios that are consistent with an A band credit rating.

 

Economic profit

Economic profit increased by £128 million from £1,410 million in the year ended 30 June 2012to £1,538 million in the year ended 30 June 2013. See explanatory note 5 (Economic profit) for the calculation and definition of economic profit.

NOTES

 

1. Basis of preparation

 

The financial information included within this report has been prepared using accounting policies in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and adopted for use in the European Union (EU), and in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules (DTR) of the Financial Conduct Authority. This condensed consolidated financial information has been prepared on the basis of accounting policies consistent with those applied in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2013. IFRS is subject to ongoing review and endorsement by the EU or possible amendment by interpretative guidance and the issuance of new standards by the IASB.

The directors have a reasonable expectation that the group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

(a) Adopted by the group

The following accounting amendment, issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), is effective for the first time in the current financial year and has been adopted by the group with no impact on its consolidated results or financial position:

 

Amendment to IAS 1 - Presentation of items of other comprehensive income requires that items included in other comprehensive income are analysed between items that will not be recycled subsequently to the income statement and items that may be recycled subsequently to the income statement.

 

(b) Not adopted by the group

The following standards, amendments and interpretations issued by the IASB and endorsed by the EU unless stated otherwise, have not yet been adopted by the group. The standards or amendments will be adopted by the group in the year ending 30 June 2014, unless stated otherwise. The group does not currently believe the adoption of these standards or amendments will have a material impact on its consolidated results or financial position, unless stated otherwise.

 

IFRS 9 - Financial instruments (effective in the year ending 30 June 2016, not yet endorsed by the EU) removes the multiple classification and measurement models for financial assets required by IAS 39 - Financial Instruments: Recognition and measurement and introduces a model that has only two classification categories: amortised cost and fair value. Classification is determined by the business model used to manage the financial assets and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the financial assets. The accounting and presentation of financial liabilities and for derecognising financial instruments has been transferred from IAS 39 without any significant changes. The amendment to IFRS 7 - Financial instruments: Disclosures requires additional disclosures on transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9. The group is currently assessing the impact this standard would have on its consolidated results and financial position.

 

IFRS 10 - Consolidated financial statements replaces the guidance of control and consolidation in IAS 27 and SIC-12 - Consolidation - special purpose entities. The core principle that a consolidated entity presents a parent and its subsidiaries as if they were a single entity remains unchanged, as do the mechanics of consolidation. Application of IFRS 10 will not result in a change to the scope of the consolidation.

 

IFRS 11 - Joint arrangements requires joint arrangements to be accounted for as a joint operation or as a joint venture depending on the rights and obligations of each party to the arrangement. Proportionate consolidation for joint ventures will be eliminated and equity accounting will be mandatory. If the standard had been adopted by the group for the year ended 30 June 2013, net sales, operating profit and profit for the year would be lower by £130 million, £41 million and £11 million, respectively (2012 - £123 million, £39 million and £10 million, respectively), and net assets, total assets and total liabilities would have reduced by £19 million, £86 million and £67 million, respectively (2012 - £19 million, £81 million and £62 million, respectively). There is no impact on earnings per share.

 

IFRS 12 - Disclosure of interests in other entities requires enhanced disclosures of the nature, risks and financial effects associated with the group's interests in subsidiaries, associates, joint arrangements and unconsolidated structured entities.

 

IFRS 13 - Fair value measurement explains how to measure fair value and aims to enhance fair value disclosures. The standard does not materially change the measurement of fair values but codifies it in one place.

 

Amendments to IAS 19 - Employee benefits changes a number of disclosure requirements for post employment arrangements and restricts the options currently available on how to account for defined benefit pension plans. The most significant change that will impact the group is that the amendment requires the expected returns on pension plan assets, currently calculated based on management's estimate of expected returns, to be replaced by a credit on the pension plan assets calculated at the liability discount rate. The group estimates the adoption of the revised IAS 19 would result in an additional charge to operating profit of £10 million and to finance charges of £33 million in the year ended 30 June 2013 (2012 - £11 million and £44 million, respectively). The adoption of the amendment to the standard will not impact the group's net assets.

The financial information set out in this preliminary announcement does not constitute the company's statutory accounts for the year ended 30 June 2013 or 2012. Statutory accounts for the year ended 30 June 2012 have been delivered to the registrar of companies, and those for the year ended 30 June 2013 will be delivered in due course. The auditor has reported on those accounts; their reports were (i) unqualified, (ii) did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and (iii) did not contain a statement under section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

2. Segmental information

      Diageo presents segmental information for the manufacture, distribution and selling of premium drinks in operating segments based on the geographical location of third party customers. The information presented is consistent with management reporting provided to the chief operating decision maker, which has been identified as the executive committee.

      The executive committee considers the business principally from a geographical perspective and the business analysis is presented by geographical segment. In addition to these geographical selling segments, a further segment reviewed by the executive committee is Global Supply, which manufactures and distributes premium drinks within the group. Continuing operations also include the Corporate function. In view of the focus on the geographical segments in explaining the group's performance in the Business review, the results of the Global Supply segment have been allocated to the geographical segments. Corporate revenues and costs are in respect of central costs, including finance, corporate relations, human resources and legal, as well as certain information systems, facilities and employee costs that do not relate to the geographical segments or to Global Supply and hence are not allocated. They also include rents receivable in respect of properties not used by the group in the manufacture, sale or distribution of premium drinks and the results of Gleneagles Hotel.

      In the year ended 30 June 2013 Diageo changed its internal reporting structure to reflect changes made to management responsibilities. As a result of this change, Diageo reports the following geographical segments both for management reporting purposes and in the external financial statements: North America; Western Europe; Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey; Latin America and Caribbean; Asia Pacific and Corporate.

      During the year ended 30 June 2013 changes have been made in the management accounts in respect of the allocation of specific corporate items and the allocation of the operating profit before exceptional items of Global Supply to better reflect the geographical segment to which the cost relates. In addition, certain transaction exchange differences, previously included in Corporate, have been allocated to the geographical segments to better reflect which geographical segment the item is in respect of.

      As a consequence of these changes, the financial information by geographical segments for comparative years has been amended and restated segmental information has been provided in the tables below.

      The segmental information for net sales and operating profit before exceptional items is reported at budgeted exchange rates in line with management reporting. For management reporting purposes the group measures the current year at, and restates the prior year net sales and operating profit to, the current year's budgeted exchange rates. These exchange rates are set prior to the financial year as part of the financial planning process and provide a consistent exchange rate to measure the performance of the business throughout the year. The adjustments required to retranslate the segmental information to actual exchange rates and to reconcile it to the group's reported results are shown in the tables below. The comparative segmental information, prior to retranslation, has not been restated at the current year's budgeted exchange rates but is presented at the budgeted rates for the respective years.

      In addition, for management reporting purposes Diageo excludes the impact of acquisitions and disposals completed in the current and prior year from the results of the geographical segments in order to provide comparable results. The impact of acquisitions and disposals on net sales and operating profit is disclosed under the appropriate geographical segments in the tables below at budgeted exchange rates.

* These items represent the IFRS 8 performance measures for the geographical and Global Supply segments.

 



 

(i) The net sales figures for Global Supply reported to the executive committee primarily comprise inter-segment sales and these are eliminated in a separate column in the above segmental analysis. Apart from sales by the Global Supply segment to the other operating segments, inter-segmental sales are not material.

 

(ii) The group's net finance charges are managed centrally and are not attributable to individual operating segments.

 

Approximately 40% of annual net sales occur in the last four months of each calendar year.

 

Weighted average exchange rates used in the translation of income statements were US dollar - £1 = $1.57 (2012 - £1 = $1.58) and euro - £1 = €1.21 (2012 - £1 = €1.18). Exchange rates used to translate assets and liabilities at the balance sheet date were US dollar - £1 = $1.52 (30 June 2012 - £1 = $1.57) and euro - £1 = €1.17 (30 June 2012 - £1 = €1.24). The group uses foreign exchange transaction hedges to mitigate the effect of exchange rate movements.

 

3. Exceptional items

Exceptional items are those which, in management's judgement, need to be disclosed by virtue of their size or incidence in order for the user to obtain a proper understanding of the financial information.

5. Taxation

For the year ended 30 June 2013, the £529 million taxation charge (2012 - £1,038 million) comprises a UK tax charge of £64 million (2012 - £47 million) and a foreign tax charge of £465 million (2012 - £991 million). Included within the foreign tax charge in the year ended 30 June 2012 is an exceptional charge of £524 million. During the year ended 30 June 2012 the group concluded tax authority negotiations in respect of the tax basis of certain intangible assets resulting in a reduction in the effective ongoing tax rate and the write off of a deferred tax asset of £524 million as an exceptional tax item.

 

6. Other investments

Other investments of £412 million at 30 June 2013 (2012 - £97 million) primarily includes the group's 10% equity interest in United Spirits Limited (USL) of £350 million (2012 - £nil) and loans of £50 million (2012 - £87 million) to associates in South Africa and customers and other third parties. The financial statements of USL, prepared under Indian GAAP, for the year ended 31 March 2013 disclosed net sales of INR 106.0 billion (£1,173 million) and operating profit of INR 10.6 billion (£117 million).

On 9 August 2012, Diageo completed the acquisition of 100% of the equity of Ypióca Bebidas S.A. (Ypióca) from Ypióca Agroindustrial Limitada for a cash consideration of BRL 900 million (£284 million). Ypióca is a leading producer and distributor of a cachaça brand, Ypióca in Brazil. Ypióca has been consolidated for the period since acquisition to 30 June 2013 and contributed net sales of £58 million and operating profit of £3 million. Directly attributable integration costs of £3 million (2012 - £7 million transaction costs) have been charged to other operating expenses in the year.

On 27 May 2013 the group completed the acquisition of a 10% equity interest through a preferential allotment of shares by USL, the leading spirits company in India, at a cost of INR 20.1 billion (£249 million) at INR 1440 per share. In addition, on 13 May 2013, the group acquired a 0.04% equity interest on the closing of a mandatory tender offer to the other shareholders of USL at a cost of £1 million (INR 1440 per share). Directly attributable transaction costs of £33 million were included within the initial investment cost, out of which £24 million have been paid by Diageo in the year ending 30 June 2013.

In addition, 'other' includes fair value adjustments made to provisional fair values in respect of acquisitions completed in the year ended 30 June 2012 and are primarily in respect of Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd. (Shuijingfang) and cash consideration paid in respect of the acquisition of a 50% indirect equity interest in United National Breweries, a traditional sorghum beer business in South Africa.

On 7 June 2013, Diageo completed the acquisition of an additional 40% equity stake in Sichuan Chengdu Shuijingfang Group Co., Ltd. (SJF Holdco) (formerly Sichuan Chengdu Quanxing Group Co., Ltd.) from Chengdu Yinsheng Investment Holding Co., Ltd. for a cash consideration of RMB 1,862 million (£198 million (excluding transaction costs of £2 million)). The acquisition of the additional 40% equity stake brought Diageo's shareholding to 93% in SJF Holdco and increased its effective interest in Shuijingfang from 21% to 37%.

Subsequent to 30 June 2013, an agreement was reached to purchase the remaining 7% of the equity in SJF Holdco for a consideration of RMB 326 million (£35 million).

 

13. Contingent liabilities and legal proceedings

 

(a) Guarantees

As of 30 June 2013 the group has no material performance guarantees or indemnities to third parties.

 

(b) Colombian litigation 

An action was filed on 8 October 2004 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York by the Republic of Colombia and a number of its local government entities against Diageo and other spirits companies, alleging several causes of action, including violations of the Federal RICO Act. This claim was dismissed in November 2012. The dismissal was without prejudice and as such, plaintiffs are not barred from bringing a similar action in future. Diageo cannot meaningfully quantify the possible loss or range of loss in the event of any future litigation. Diageo remains committed to continued dialogue with the Colombian governmental entities to address the underlying issues.

 

(c) Korean customs dispute 

Litigation is ongoing in Korea in connection with the application of the methodology used in transfer pricing on spirits imports since 2004. In December 2009, Diageo Korea received a final customs audit assessment notice from the Korean customs authorities, covering the period from 1 February 2004 to 30 June 2007, for Korean won 194 billion or £112 million (including £14 million of value added tax), which was paid in full and appealed to the Korean Tax Tribunal.

      On 18 May 2011, the Tax Tribunal made a determination that the statute of limitations had run for part of the assessment period, ordered a partial penalty refund and instructed the Korean customs authorities to reinvestigate the remaining assessments. Accordingly, a refund of Korean won 43 billion or £25 million (including £2 million of value added tax) was made to Diageo Korea in the year ended 30 June 2012.

      However, post the completion of the reinvestigation, the Korean customs authorities have concluded that they will continue to pursue the application of the same methodology and on 18 October 2011 a further final imposition notice was issued for Korean won 217 billion or £125 million (including £14 million of value added tax) in respect of the period from 29 February 2008 to 31 October 2010.

      In response Diageo Korea filed a claim with the Seoul Administrative Court (Court) along with a petition for preliminary injunction to stay the final imposition notice. The Court granted Diageo Korea's request for preliminary injunction and has stayed the final imposition until the decision of the Court on the underlying matter. On 31 October 2012, the Court instructed the Korean customs authorities to reinvestigate the second imposition notice per the instructions of the Tax Tribunal and stayed the Court hearings until the completion of the re-audit. The re-audit was completed in February 2013 and the Court hearings resumed in June 2013.

      The underlying matter remains in progress with the Court and Diageo Korea is unable to quantify meaningfully the possible loss or range of loss to which these claims may give rise. Diageo Korea continues to defend its position vigorously.

 

(d) Thalidomide litigation

In Australia, a class action claim alleging product liability and negligence for injuries arising from the consumption of the drug thalidomide has been filed in the Supreme Court of Victoria against Distillers Company (Biochemicals) Limited, its parent Diageo Scotland Limited (formerly Distillers Company Limited), as well as against Grϋnenthal GmbH, the developer of the drug (not a member of the group). On 18 July 2012 Diageo settled the claim of the lead claimant Lynette Rowe and agreed a process to consider the remaining claimants in the class. To enable this process to occur, Ms Rowe and her legal representatives have agreed not to take any step toward a trial of any issue in the litigation before 31 August 2013. Pursuant to orders made by the Supreme Court of Victoria the class has now been closed. 124 claimants have filed registration forms in the Rowe class action. In the United Kingdom, proceedings have twice been commenced but lapsed for lack of service. Distillers Company (Biochemicals) Limited distributed the drug in Australia and the United Kingdom for a period in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Diageo is unable to quantify meaningfully the possible loss or range of loss to which these lawsuits may give rise. The group has worked voluntarily for many years with various thalidomide organisations and has provided significant financial support.

 

(e) Other

The group has extensive international operations and is defendant in a number of legal, customs and tax proceedings incidental to these operations, the outcome of which cannot at present be foreseen. In particular, the group is currently the defendant in customs proceedings in India and in Brazil that challenge the declared customs value of products imported by Diageo India and Diageo Brazil. Diageo continues to defend its position vigorously in these proceedings.

 

Save as disclosed above, neither Diageo, nor any member of the Diageo group, is or has been engaged in, nor (so far as Diageo is aware) is there pending or threatened by or against it, any legal or arbitration proceedings which may have a significant effect on the financial position of the Diageo group.


 

14. Related party transactions

The group's significant related parties are its associates, joint ventures, key management personnel and pension plans. Transactions between the group and its related parties are made on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm's length transactions. There have been no transactions with these related parties during the year ended 30 June 2013 that have materially affected the financial position or performance of the group during the year.


 

15. Post balance sheet events

On 4 July 2013 Diageo purchased an additional 14.98% equity interest (21.76 million shares) in United Spirits Limited (USL) at a cost of INR 1440 per share totalling INR 31.3 billion (£344 million) from United Breweries (Holdings) Limited (UBHL), subsidiaries of UBHL and USL, and SWEW Benefit Company (a company established for the benefit of certain USL employees) on completion of the share purchase agreement of 9 November 2012 (the SPA). This has taken the group's equity interest in USL to 25.02%. With the completion of this purchase, the shareholders' agreement between Diageo, UBHL and Kingfisher Finvest India Limited (a subsidiary of UBHL) has become effective. Diageo's 25.02% shareholding in USL, together with the voting and other governance arrangements agreed with the UBHL group including Dr Mallya's continued role as Chairman of USL, will enable Diageo to reflect the results of USL in its consolidated accounts.

      As previously announced by Diageo on 4 July, the High Court of Karnataka (the High Court) had granted leave under sections 536 and 537 of the Indian Companies Act in respect of five winding-up petitions (the Original Petitions) against UBHL that were pending on the date of the SPA, to enable the sale by UBHL to Diageo to take place notwithstanding the continued existence of those winding-up petitions. Two additional winding-up petitions were brought against UBHL after 9 November 2012, and the leave granted by the High Court does not extend to them. It is possible that the decision of the High Court in respect of the Original Petitions could be reviewed on appeal, and appeals against the grant of leave have been filed by certain petitioners. As also previously announced, it was considered unlikely that any appeal process in respect of the leave decision on the Original Petitions would definitively conclude on a timely basis and, accordingly, Diageo waived the conditionality under the SPA relating to the absence of insolvency proceedings in relation to UBHL and acquired 10.14 million USL shares from UBHL as part of the completion on 4 July 2013. In the event that a winding-up order is passed in respect of UBHL, the sale of these USL shares by UBHL to Diageo would, as a matter of Indian company law, be treated as automatically void unless leave of the court in respect of all relevant winding-up petitions had been or were obtained for that sale. Accordingly, it is possible that, if a winding-up order were to be passed in respect of UBHL, title to these 10.14 million USL shares acquired from UBHL could be lost. If, following any such winding-up order, the sale of these USL shares by UBHL were to be treated as automatically void, it would remain open for retrospective leave to be sought for that sale in respect of any relevant winding-up petition, though there can be no certainty as to the outcome of any such application or the timeframe within which it would be concluded. Adverse results for Diageo in any such proceedings could harm the value of Diageo's investment in USL and Diageo's future financial results.

      In addition on 4 July 2013, Diageo Holdings Netherlands B.V. (DHN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Diageo plc, agreed to issue a conditional back-stop guarantee to Standard Chartered Bank (Standard Chartered) in respect of the liabilities of Watson Limited (Watson), a company affiliated with Dr Mallya, under a $135 million (£89 million) facility that Standard Chartered, subject to agreement of full documentation and implementation of a security package, would advance to Watson. The terms require that any right of Standard Chartered to call on the guarantee from DHN will be subject to Standard Chartered having first taken certain agreed steps to recover from Watson, including defined steps towards enforcement of its expected security package. In addition, the terms require that DHN would have, in respect of its potential liability under this guarantee, the benefit of counter-indemnities from Watson and Dr Mallya as well as the security package put in place for the Standard Chartered facility.

EXPLANATORY NOTES

 

Comparisons are to the year ended 30 June 2012 (2012) unless otherwise stated. Unless otherwise stated, percentage movements given throughout this announcement for volume, sales, net sales, marketing spend, operating profit and operating margin are organic movements after retranslating prior year reported numbers at current year exchange rates and after adjusting for the effect of exceptional items and acquisitions and disposals.

 

This announcement contains forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainty. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, including factors beyond Diageo's control. Please refer to 'Cautionary statement concerning forward-looking statements' for more details.

 

This announcement includes names of Diageo's products which constitute trademarks or trade names which Diageo owns or which others own and license to Diageo for use.

 

Definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures

 

1.  Volume

 

Volume is a non-GAAP measure that is measured on an equivalent units basis to nine-litre cases of spirits. An equivalent unit represents one nine-litre case of spirits, which is approximately 272 servings. A serving comprises 33ml of spirits, 165ml of wine, or 330ml of ready to drink or beer. Therefore, to convert volume of products, other than spirits, to equivalent units, the following guide has been used: beer in hectolitres divide by 0.9, wine in nine-litre cases divide by five, ready to drink in nine-litre cases divide by 10 and certain pre-mixed products that are classified as ready to drink in nine-litre cases divide by five.

 

2.  Organic movements

 

Diageo's strategic planning process is based on organic movements in volume, sales, net sales, marketing spend, operating profit and operating margin, a ratio calculated by dividing organic operating profit by organic net sales and expressed as a percentage. These non-GAAP measures are chosen for planning, reporting and incentive purposes since they represent those measures which local managers are most directly able to influence and they enable consideration of the underlying business performance without the distortion caused by fluctuating exchange rates, exceptional items and acquisitions and disposals. The group's management believes these measures provide valuable additional information for users of the financial statements in understanding the group's performance since they focus on that element of the core brand portfolio which is common to both years. They should be viewed as complementary to, and not replacements for, the comparable GAAP measures and reported movements therein.

      In the discussion of the performance of the business, organic information is presented using pounds sterling amounts on a constant currency basis. This retranslates prior year reported numbers at current year exchange rates and enables an understanding of the underlying performance of the market that is most closely influenced by the actions of that market's management. Exchange impacts in respect of the external hedging of inter group sales of products and the inter group recharging of third party services are allocated to the geographical segment to which they relate. Residual exchange impacts are reported in Corporate.

      Acquisitions, disposals and exceptional items also impact the reported performance and therefore the reported movement in any year in which they arise. Management adjusts for the impact of such transactions in assessing the performance of the underlying business.

      For acquisitions in the current year, the post acquisition results are excluded from the organic movement calculations. For acquisitions in the prior year, post acquisition results are included in full in the prior year but are included in the organic movement calculation from the anniversary of the acquisition date in the current year. The acquisition column also eliminates the impact of transaction costs that have been charged to operating profit in the current or prior year in respect of acquisitions that in management's assessment are expected to complete.

      Where a business, brand, brand distribution right or agency agreement was disposed of, or terminated, in the current or prior year, the group, in the organic movement calculations, excludes the results for that business from the current year and prior year. In the calculation of operating profit, the overheads included in disposals are only those directly attributable to the businesses disposed of, and do not result from subjective judgements of management. 
       Exceptional items are those which, in management's judgement, need to be disclosed by virtue of their size or incidence in order for the user to obtain a proper understanding of the financial information. Such items are included within the income statement caption to which they relate.

      The underlying performance on a constant currency basis and excluding the impact of exceptional items, acquisitions and disposals is referred to as 'organic' performance. Organic movement calculations enable the reader to focus on the performance of the business which is common to both years.

      The organic movement percentage is the amount in the column headed 'Organic movement' in the tables below expressed as a percentage of the aggregate of the amount in the first column of the table, the amount in the column headed 'Exchange' and the amount, if any, in respect of acquisitions and disposals that have impacted the comparable prior year included in the column headed 'Acquisitions and disposals'. The inclusion of the column headed 'Exchange' in the organic movement calculation reflects the adjustment to recalculate the prior year results as if they had been generated at the current year's exchange rates.

 

The organic movement calculations for volume, sales, net sales, marketing spend and operating profit for the year ended 30 June 2013 were as follows:

Notes: Information relating to the organic movement calculations

*    The exchange adjustments for sales, net sales, marketing spend and operating profit are the retranslation of prior year reported amounts at current year exchange rates and are principally in respect of the euro, the US dollar, Brazilian real and African currencies, primarily the Kenyan shilling, the Ghanaian cedi and the South African rand.

**  The impacts of acquisitions and disposals are excluded from the organic movement. In the year ended 30 June 2013 the acquisitions and disposals that affected volume, sales, net sales, marketing spend and operating profit were as follows:
