Pernod Ricard achieved
a good performance
in HY1 2012/13

In summary:

In the first half of the 2012/13 financial year Pernod Ricard achieved a good performance despite a less buoyant environment than in 2011/12 and taking into account major technical effects(1) (estimated impact of € (72) million on profit from recurring operations).

 

The growth motors of the Group remain unchanged:

  • Premiumisation and Innovation
  • Top 14 and Indian whiskies
  • Emerging markets and the United States

 

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.”
