CHARLOTTE, N.C., (BUSINESS WIRE), Nov. 6, 2012-- Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (NASDAQ: COKE) today announced it earned $10.1 million, or basic net income per share of $1.09, on net sales of $419.9 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $9.8 million, or basic net income per share of $1.06, on net sales of $405.9 million for the third quarter of 2011. The results for the third quarter of 2012 included $0.6 million of after-tax gains ($1.0 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on aluminum hedges and a $0.4 million increase in income tax expense due to recording a valuation allowance for certain deferred tax assets. The results for the third quarter of 2011 included $1.1 million of after-tax losses ($1.8 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on fuel and aluminum hedges and a $0.9 million net decrease in tax expense related to changes in reserves for uncertain tax positions and other income tax changes.

On a comparable basis, the Company earned $9.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, or comparable basic net income per share of $1.06, versus $10.0 million in the third quarter of 2011, or comparable basic net income per share of $1.09.

The Company earned $25.4 million, or basic net income per share of $2.75, on net sales of $1,227.7 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared to net income of $26.8 million, or basic net income per share of $2.91, on net sales of $1,188.4 million for the first nine months of 2011. The results for the first nine months of 2012 included $0.6 million of after-tax gains ($1.0 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on aluminum hedges and a $1.7 million net increase in income tax expense due to recording a valuation allowance for certain deferred tax assets, changes in reserves for uncertain tax positions and other income tax changes. The results for the first nine months of 2011 included $2.6 million of after-tax losses ($4.2 million on a pre-tax basis) due to mark-to-market adjustments on fuel and aluminum hedges and a $0.7 million net decrease in income tax expense related to changes in reserves for uncertain tax positions and other income tax changes.

Frank Harrison, III, Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased to report solid growth in our revenue and gross margin for both the third quarter and year-to-date 2012. Growing revenue and gross margin are essential for our long-term success. The revenue growth was driven by a slight volume increase, primarily in our still beverage portfolio, and modest price increases. Our gross margin growth was attributable to both higher pricing and lower than expected increases in our raw material costs. We continue to focus our efforts on innovation, process improvements and efficiency in our operations to continue to be able to grow revenue and gross margin."

Henry W. Flint, President and COO, added, "We are pleased with our positive results for 2012 which have been achieved in an extremely competitive environment. Driving increases in both volume and price in this competitive environment is a testament to the strength of our brands and outstanding execution by our people. On a comparable basis, our net income and earnings per share were down from the prior year due to higher S,D&A costs. Our increased S,D&A costs related primarily to higher wages and related benefits costs, increased marketing spending to support our brands, and investments in technology to help drive continued operational improvement and efficiency."
