a good performance
in HY1 2012/13

In summary:

Pierre Pringuet, Chief Executive Officer and Vice President of the Board of Pernod Ricard, comments: “The good performance achieved this semester confirms the soundness of our business model: a comprehensive portfolio of first-class international and local brands, a premiumisation strategy enhanced by a strong innovation policy, and  global exposure allowing us to capture all growth relays. We are confident in continuing our growth mid-term, and we confirm our guidance of organic growth in profit from recurring operations close to +6% for the full financial year 2012/13.”
