The Coca-Cola beverage company continued to recover from the corona pandemic in the third quarter. For the year as a whole, CEO James Quincey is now a little more confident despite significantly higher commodity prices. Adjusted earnings per share is expected to rise 15-17% in 2021, as the group announced on Wednesday. The share then increased by nearly 3 percent in pre-market trade in the United States. Group sales increased during the review period compared to the same period last year by 16 percent to $ 10 billion. The bottom line was that at just under $ 2.5 billion, 42% more profit was locked in compared to a year ago. In 2020, the closure linked to the pandemic of restaurants, stadiums, cinemas and other public facilities, where a significant portion of turnover is generated, had a severe impact on the group.
